As explosive as the star destroyer in the opening scene, that galaxy far, far away has captured the hearts and imagination of generations of fans worldwide. This mythological space series intro- duced us to the vilest of villains, Darth Vader, and the hero Luke Skywalker who was destined to save the galaxy. With all of its success and legions of fans, Star Wars conventions are attended all over the globe. These are a wonderful opportunity for fans to bump elbows with other fans and share experiences of the pop culture phenomenon. And let us not forget the purchase of embel- lished merch.
