Film Deaths[edit | edit source]

  • Thunderball (1965) [Vulcan Co-Pilot]: Poisoned along with the other crew, when Paul Stassino puts poison gas in their oxygen supply.
  • Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980) [Captain Lorth Needa]: Tortured to death via telekinetic chokehold by Darth Vader (David Prowse/James Earl Jones), after Needa personally apologizes for finding and then losing the Millennium Falcon. (Actually, it's right under his nose.) Needa's shuttle takes him from his flagship Avenger to the superdreadnaught Executioner; then we smash-cut to Needa collapsing at Vader's feet, just before a couple of guards haul the captain off. CLASSIC QUOTE: "Apology accepted, Captain Needa."
