Ok, I have to apologize for the belated answers. (Badly Belated) Both I and my daughter have been sick, and after 2 weeks of her vomiting nearly every day, her doctor tells me she isn't actually ill anymore... She does it because she's stubborn. *sigh* It's been a VERY long and busy two weeks for me, so I hope you all understand.

One of the meat toppings offered by Pizza Hut.
Worth 10 Points: Chicken, Ham, Beef Topping, Pork Topping, Pepperoni
Worth 5 Points: Anchovies (2), Bacon (3)

Question 2
One of the vehicles featured on the Star Wars Space Vehicles collectors' plates by Hamilton.
Worth 10 Points: B-Wing - One of the Rebel Alliance's Heavy Assault Vehicles, and figured prominently in the Battle of Endor

Jabba's Sail Barge - The primary mode of planet-side transportation for Tatooine's most notorious gangster, Jabba the Hutt.
Y-Wing - Though the Rebel Y-Wing has become obsolete, it played key roles battles of Yavin and Endor.
Worth 5 Points: TIE Fighter (2) - TIE stands for Twin Ion Engine and the TIE fighter is the Imperial fleet's primary starfighter
Star Destroyer (2) - The signature vessel of the Imperial Fleet, the Star Destroyer strikes awe and terror where ever it goes.
Not Mentioned: Slave I - Boba Fett's ship, originally owned by Boba's father Jango, this vehicle is as recognizable as it is feared.
Imperial Shuttle - A Lambda class shuttle used for both freight and passenger ferrying, this vehicle's proudest moments are when it carries Imperial elite, such as Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine
X-Wing, specifically the Red Five - The X-Wing is the Rebels' key fighter, outmatching the Imperial TIE Fighters in battle over and over. Red Five was the X-Wing piloted by Luke Skywalker against the Death Star.
