The E-11 BlasTech rifle. It’s the standard rifle for Stormtroppers. But why is it called E-11? Is there an E-10? Or an E-9?
A look on the official Star Wars Wiki reveals that there is:
E-5 blaster rifle
E-9 is a spaceship
E-10 is a droid
E-11 is the standard Stormtrooper rifle
And that’s it. There is no other E-number names in Star Wars.
In fact there are no E-whatevers going up to E-100.
How do I know? I tried all the URLs. For instance on E-13 I tried http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/E-13. But nothing there. To test 100 URLs would be crazy, so I used a function in a Google spreadsheet to quickly tell me which E-numbers exist. The spreadsheet has 50 functions counting in consecutive order. Each function looked like this: =ImportXML(“http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/E-11”, “//li[@class=”toclevel-1 tocsection-2′]”)
1) an interest in Star Wars
2) an interest in number sequences
3) Google functions
is a beautiful thing.
