Place your hand on the data crystal...

{A Cerean court official is reading the oath to the jury.}
Cerean court official: Sentient and possibly non-sentient beings of various genders or none, of the jury.
Cerean court official: Do each of you solemnly swear that you will well and truly try, and true deliverance make, between the Republic and the accused, and a true verdict give according to the evidence, so help you The Force?

{The jury composed of Star Wars alien species.}

{The camera zooms in on Yoda.}
Yoda: “Do each of you"... ? DO?
Yoda: Try or try not. There is no "Do".

The author writes:

Star Wars twice in a row? That wasn't planned. I had a bit of fun choosing Earth costumes for the Starwarsians.

I'm starting to develop a theory of Star Wars eye colours. Black shiny eyes means unscrutably alien. Red eyes means evil, human-looking eyes, including the disproportionately large, means good or identifiable.

The jury oath here is vaguely modelled off US, British and Australian oaths.
