Inside George Lucas’ Secret Rebel Base

In case you were wondering exactly where they keep the nerds slaving away at your next Lego Star Wars video game, BusinessWeek’s got a peek inside the Jedi Training Academy, at the Lucasfilm headquarters in the Presidio area of San Francisco. The features of the largest known colony of Star Wars fans on the planet indeed sound like some kind of marching orders for an attack on the Death Star–“teams form and unform rapidly around projects, managers must motivate teams of freelancers and full-timers, and silo-busting is the rule” (silo-busting…would we use our blasters for that?), it’s also full of decidedly un-sci-fi details: “And–a simple but crucial point–each room has ample electrical outlets.”

Maybe those are used to charge the droids.
