The other night while I was watching the Empire Strikes Back for the millionth time I suddenly realized something. When General Veers comes into Darth Vader's chamber he reports that "comscan has detected an energy field protecting an area of the sixth planet of the Hoth system". As far as I know planetary systems are named after the star the planets orbit. Just like we are on the third planet of the solar system where our sun's name is "Sol", hence "Solar system". If the planet's name is Hoth why not just say "comscan has detected an energy field protecting an area of the Hoth system". Also, why refer to a planet as a system? Could Hoth be the name of the planetary system's star instaed of the ice planet the rebels are hiding on?
