Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Question: I have noticed more than one female character (Asajj Ventress and, later in the show, Ahsoka Tano) wearing pieces of cloth on their belts that hang between their legs. I have seen this on females in other shows/movies/games as well. Does it serve some purpose or is it simply decorative?

Chosen answer: This is a compromise between flirty and modest showing skin on the side of the leg, while hiding the crotch/rear area. This style exists only in fiction because in real life, the cloth would get in the way and it would be easier to either wear shorts, remove the cloth, or both.

Question: Plo Koon always has some kind of covering/bandage on the middle finger of each hand. What is the reason behind it?

Chosen answer: Plo Koon has the ability of a forbidden Force technique called Electric Judgment. To many Jedi, this seemed to be too close to the Force lightning used by Sith Lords. He therefore wears talons over his fingertips in order to boost his Force powers.

Question: In the Season Two episodes, is Duchess Satine named after the character in the movie "Moulin Rouge" (seeing how that movie stars Ewan McGregor, who played Obi-wan in the SW prequel movies)?

Chosen answer: While it obviously cannot be completely discounted, there is currently no evidence to suggest that this is anything other than coincidence.

Question: Are General Grievous and Asajj Ventress the same rank, or is one above the other?

Chosen answer: Grievous is general of the Separatist army. Ventress technically has no rank, being Dooku's personal assassin/enforcer/aide. In terms of personal power within the Seperatist movement, both are probably about equal, but, in rank terms, the Seperatist forces would obey Grievous over Ventress.

Question: Has Dooku ever officially made Asajj his apprentice? I know he is still Sidious' apprentice, but Sidious secretly trained Maul before he killed Plageous (according to the SW Wikipedia), so Dooku could secretly train Asajj. In "Ambush" he calls Asajj his apprentice when talking to the king of Toydaria, but then in "Cloak of Darkness", he tells Asajj that she has to prove she is worthy.

Chosen answer: Dooku never accepted Ventress as his apprentice, as far as I know; he just kept her as his devoted personal assassin. In Phantom Menace, it is stated that there can be only two Sith at a time, to prevent a power struggle in the lower ranks. To accept Ventress as an apprentice, Dooku would have violated that rule.

Mistakes

When the two factions of Hondo's pirates are fighting each other, the ones who sided with Maul and Savage are using blasters that fire red bolts, while the ones that stuck with Hondo shoot blue bolts. When Hondo persuades the traitors to work for him again and they attack the two Sith, all of the pirates' blasters are now firing blue bolts. This is Star Wars, not G.I. Joe, and weapons don't just change colour like that.

Trivia

Commander Colt watches Domino Squad do their test and says, "Start the Citadel challenge, version THX, variable 1138," which is a reference to THX 1138, another film by George Lucas.
