Han Solo on Trial

Han Solo on TrialEver wonder what would happen if Han Solo were charged with the crime of shooting Greedo? Wonder no more: witness Han Solo on trial, "Law and Order"-style [67mb]. The voices are incredibly accurate, and the dialogue is quite witty at times (but boring at others). It's only about 20 minutes long, so well worth the download if you've got the time.

For my less geeky friends (from Wikipedia):

In the original cinematic release of the film, Greedo does not fire at all. Solo shoots first (which was clearly intended as a "laugh" moment, since Greedo says, "I've been looking forward to this for a long time", before Solo fires). In the 1997 re-release of the film, Greedo gets a poorly-aimed shot at Solo from about two feet away before Solo fires. George Lucas has said that this change is to enhance Solo's overall heroism, and (in Entertainment Weekly) that he'd originally planned it this way. The altered scene has irked many fans before and after. In the 2004 DVD version both now pull the trigger at about the same time, though Greedo still shoots first.
