    Yes, Yoda! When I was teenager, we had a little mutt poodle named Yoda. Fast little dog!

    But Empire Strikes Back is the only one in the series where I've seen the whole thing. Have seen a few minutes of the original and the last one. None of return of the jedi or the first two..you know, the new first two.

    Main Entry: 1alien
    Pronunciation: \ˈā-lē-ən, ˈāl-yən\
    Function: adjective
    Etymology: Middle English, from Anglo-French, from Latin alienus, from alius
    Date: 14th century
    1 a: belonging or relating to another person, place, or thing : strange b: relating, belonging, or owing allegiance to another country or government : foreign c: exotic 1
    2: differing in nature or character typically to the point of incompatibility
    synonyms see extrinsic
    — alien·ly adverb
    — alien·ness \-lē-ən-nəs, -yən-nəs\ noun

    I'd like to call attention to definitions 1b and 1c, both of which I bolded for you. I would say that from the point of view of a human from the planet earth, Princess Leia would qualify as both foreign and exotic.

    and based on what you wrote in the quoted post, alien is what we are debating, not human.

    Died 0 ABY, later resurrected[3]
    Physical description Species Human[1]

    Humans were the galaxy's most numerous and politically dominant sentient species with millions of major and minor colonies galaxywide. Believed to have originated on the galactic capital of Coruscant, they could be found anywhere, engaged in many different pursuits: spacers, mercenaries, smugglers, merchants, soldiers, assassins, farmers, crime lords, laborers, slavers, slaves and many others, including Jedi. Since Humans were the most common sentient species, they were often considered to be a standard or average to which the biology, psychology, and culture of other species were compared.
