But I think the celebration after mass genociding her home planet is a bit out of character for Leia.
Thank you very much. Amazingly enough, there was no domino incident this one time. Even Vader didn't lose any tusks (though he did have a quick tumble).
Whoa! Back up a little! No one blew up Leia's "home planet of Alderaan" in this version of the script! The "alternate form of persuasion" was using Officer Kavil's charms. And it worked. What was blown up was the rebel base on the otherwise uninhabited (or at least un-sentient-inhabited) Yavin 4. A version of the script included Leia commenting that none of her so-called friends had attempted to rescue her from her being in trouble with her dad. But I guess that didn't make it into the footage we see.
As to the "intermission" pics, see my response to Stryker below.

Kirk would start making out with some space babe, and then the show would cut to commercial; when they came back to the show, Kirk would generally be shirtless, pulling on his boots, while his latest conquest was fixing her hair or something. It became a trope of TV shows from that point forward to imply our hero (rarely the heroine) got him some during the break.
This really puts it into perspective. Never having been much of a Star Trek watcher (and certainly not of the original series), I was only vaguely -- perhaps even only subconsciously -- aware of this. But it was partly intended this way (and on two occasions that is exactly what it "covers up"); more generally, it simply indicates the passage of more than a mere moment in time. In the original Star Wars film they used establishing shots of the Death Star in transition from another scene to action there, and that is the most direct influence on what I did here.
But no, we can safely say no Sponge Bob influences whatsoever.
