Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace Easter Egg - Klingons in the Senate Debate

There are also a group of klingons in the senate hearing. It is hard to tell exactly where they are but if you look for them, you'll find them.

Boy, I must be new here! I thought this egg was talking about KLINGONS in the senate debate. Maybe we should focus on finding them instead of going off on this widely-overdebated E.T. issue. Let's stick to the matter at hand, folks.

Lets set this straight once and for all. "Hammerhead" is actually a nickname for "Momaw Nadon", a character in "A New Hope". He is from a race called "Ithorians" which are in the senate (see picture Ithorians ). ET's are also in the senate as a totally different species. (See picture ET's ). Hope this helps

By the way, I want to get he hammerhead thing straight. Ithorians are flat faced,long necked creatures from Ithor. THEY ARE NICKNAMED HAMMERHEADS BECAUSE OF THEIR HEADS. Mamow Nadon was an Ithorian exiled from his planet because his wife, Fandomar told the Empire secrets about gene-splicing, and Spore. (by the way, read Galaxy of Fear: Spore.)

There are no Kilngons in the movie the E.T. egg is correct however and the link to the ET picture is actually this http://www.starwars.com/episode-i/snapshot/1999/12/snapshot19991223.html.

The Klingons are there for homage to Gene Roddenberry (sp?). Since both Lucas and Gene basically rule sci/fi, George wanted to have the Klingons present. And yes of course, there are E.T.'s there too, for homage to Steven Spielberg. And whoever keeps saying it's not E.T. and is some form of hammerhead or something, better start paying better attention, and get his facts right.

Yes, there is Klingons in the Senate. There in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. You can't make out the foreheads but clothing they wear is deffently Klingon.

the final word has come. make way for THE CHOSEN ONE! E.T. was a Botanian(read the book, ride the ride, read the sequel). Botanians exist in the star wars galaxy as it exists today.(and 1500 years ago, when the movies take place. klingons appear, but Ka Adi Mundi is not one, he is an Iktochi. Wookies appear as delagates from Kashyyk. And finally, JAR JAR RULES

Those Definitely Look A Lot Like Klingons, But It Is Up To You To Judge. Let Us Keep This On The Klingon Subject. I Am Sick And Tired Of People Who Go Off Onto Other Subjects Than The One Presented. Quite Confusing It Is, Yes!

OK to clear things up. I found the E.T. after going through the VHS in slow-mo. There is also Wookies. There would be no klingons because Lucas had no purpose of putting them. Spelberg and Lucas are very good friends and have worked on many movies together so they are just doing favors for each other. To clear the hammerhead thing out. Hammerheads(Ithoans) are creatures who are about 5'-6' tall and have dark borwn skin they are called hammerheads because of the shape of thier head beacause some people cannot pronounce the word Ithoans (I sure can't). The creatures in Episode 1 were like 2'-3' feet tall and had more of long head. There is DEFENITLY no Klingons in the movie beacuse Star Wars and Star Trek are big competitors. Lucas has even confirmed himself that he but E.T. in there. In the movie E.T. the species of E.T. was never revealed so they called him Extra Terristorial or E.T. for short. (P.S. Jar Jar shouldn't die, it would be a hate crime. hehe)

To pus_munky> In the movie "ET" We all remember that famous line: "ET Phone home". The ET refers to itself but why does it call itself ET? Because it´s the name of the creature, not because it is an Extra Terrestial lifeform. The cast of the move also calls it ET not an ET which means that it must be the name of the creature. By the way: They are definetly NOT Hammerheads/Ithorians. The Hammerheads/Ithorians look like this: http://www.starwars.com/snapshot/1999/41/img/hammerhead_bg.jpg The Extra Terrestial lifeforms which are referred to as ET´s look like this: http://http://www.starwars.com/snapshot/1999/51/img/et_bg.jpg We have now succeeded in destroying this egg. It was originally about Klingons in "The Phantom Menace"

One Question: How can wookiees and Ithorians be easter eggs? I can understand the ET, but the others? What did you expect for a universal senate? Only humans? COME ON!!!

Actually there are E.T.s in the senate. In the March/May issue of Star wars insider there is an article on easter eggs in Episode 1 and it shows the E.T.s in a picture and also verifies them as to being true. And if you think the magazine is fake its not lying because the editor of the magazine had a part in Episode 1.

I think the confusion is that E.T. stands for extra terrestrial, which is just the nickname for the alien in the film ET. The actual race that ET belonged to is the hammerheads, members of which appear in Episode I. So everyone's right. Right? bbX

DarthGhost writes:
OK, yes, there are E.T.s in the senate, no, the correct term for the species is not the Hammerheads, beacause the Hammerheads have flat faces and kind of look like hammerhead sharks. The species is shown prominently in Ep.IV: a New Hope during the cantina scene.

Just wanna agree with darthghost over the hammerheads being shown in the Mos Eisley cantina in A New Hope. If anyone remembers the Ewoks cartoon that was on a few years back, the hammerheads feature in that.

if you look in the jedi council, there is ki-adi-mundi, seated between yoda, on his left(our right) and saesee tiin, his right(our left). he has those unmistakeable ripples on his head like the klingons do, so there is one BIG klingon in the scene.

It would be a lot easier and settle some disputes if you just said it is the species in Steven Spielberg's film, E.T.

I think that Bbx made a very good disscuusion that people where complaining that they weren't Hammer heads they were ET's and vice versa... he said that ET was just the hammer heads nickname which stood for Extra Terrestrial and that you might as well say every single living thing in star wars is an et... hence, THEY ARE HAMMER HEADS

Yeah, actually I figured this would happen, I'm not THAT great a star wars fan, well, I AM, but I don't know everything. I couldn't really be bothered looking up the facts and I was actually sort of expecting the hammer heads to be different. OKAY, that's not the point, the point is that ET isn't called ET, that is just a nick name, he only calls himself ET because they call him ET... if you were him and you didn't know English would you take the nick name they gave you or would you say "Human phone home". They wouldn't even know what a human is...I already knew that there were ET's in the senate but even if they are an egg or whatever, they still have a name, even if it is a movie... so I admit that I was wrong and everyone who thought they were hammer heads was wrong and lets call them ET's... But you have to face the fact that are not called ET's, that was just one aliens nick name... fair enough?

So what about the wookies? They must have been delegates from their home planet. Kashyyk. And there are ETs in it, not the hammerheads, which, I think, are called Weequays. I think. You fight them in Mysteries of the Sith.

Not to be picky, but it's Kashyyyk. With *three* Y's.

If you don't know what a hammer head looks like, watch A New Hope and in the cantina scene there is one at a booth. It kind of looks like a snail.

Dude... there are no Klingons. I do not know what youre talking about... but even though there are no Klingons... Where the crowd is first chanting "VOTE NOW! VOTE NOW!" you can see two Chubaccas in the higher pair of seats in the crowd where they zoom in for the close up. And yes... there are also ETs.

I didn't see any Klingons, but it is totally possible. Anyone who thinks that Star Wars and Star Trek are "big competitors" is an idiot. One is a series of movies and one is a TV series.
