Fans have wondered, or likely even argued, over what the exchange between Darth Vader and Boba Fett in Cloud City actually meant ever since The Empire Strikes Back was released in 1980. If you’re one of the many who have always wanted to know more about what was going on in the scene where Darth Vader insists to Boba Fett, “No disintegrations.” Well, it appears we finally have an answer for you.

The answer comes from Star Wars: From A Certain Point of Viewwhich is a collection of short stories set during A New Hope, and told from the points of view of secondary characters. One of the chapters features Boba Fett as the narrator. Fett leaves no doubt about the scene in question:

“He’s [Vader] still got a mad on over those rebel spies I crisped on Coruscant. Idiots came came at me with ion disruptors. What, they thought I wouldn’t carry a weapon accelerator? Flash, boom, three tiny ash piles. Tried to collect and Lord ‘No Disintegrations!’ refused to pay without bodies. My word’s not good enough, apparently. Reckoned I’d make up the loss by finding his droids and holding out for twice the reward.”

I always enjoy bits of information such as this, its nice to finally get a grasp on what was going on. The tone in Vader’s voice when he said this line always indicated a previous event, and was very much like a boss or a parent lecturing. For us nerds, this is a nice bit of trivia and its nice to finally know what that scene was about.

    How sophomoric.

    That’s the best bit of Star Wars ‘news’ i’ve heard for a while. I’ve always liked the fact that Vader seemed to have respect for Boba Fett and that Fett clearly wasn’t impressed by all that force ‘Mumbo Jumbo’

    I actually dig that explanation. Always wondered if that line had any significance to it.

      does your mother still wipe you after you go poopies?

      • M@rvel

        Nah your mom does the wiping.

          you got me there, dingleberry. maybe i’ll let you suck me off tonight…

    Seriously how do you need an explanation for this line, other than maybe wanting to know specific details, which just lessens the legend. You simply know from what Vader says that Boba disintegrates people, and this time he want’s them alive, nuff said. That leaves you to imagine any awesome scenario you want, which 99 percent of the time will be better than what the writes come up with.

    WHOSE been wondering what that line meant ALL these years? If you didn’t interpret ‘No disintegrations’ to mean that Vader has had a history of dealing with Fett and that Fett occasionally goes overboard in making a grab…then you’re not very bright. (ijs)
