In a move to clean up their image around the galaxy the Empire has replaced their fleet of Speeder Bikes with giant chipmunks. Citing the lower carbon emissions and the fact that chipmunks don’t explode when they hit a tree, the Empire insists they are doing their part to protect the fragile environment of Endor. Critics have dismissed this as green washing citing the Empire’s continued use of the enormous AT-AT Walkers which one study shows release more toxic gasses into the atmosphere than Jaba the Hutt.
