I got some enthusiastic attempts for this comp, and you'll all get the hang it as we go along. A decent start, I think.
First: the answers. Remember, part of it is the definition or meaning, and part of it is some wordplay.
Flip around the TCCOM (4) is PLIF. Flip (source letters) around (indicates you have to mix around / anagram) = the TCCOM (definition - the TCCOM is Plif).
Clark? Almost. Nearly. (3) is SOO. Clark (definition) = Almost (almost all of the letters of...) Nearly (SOON).
Admiral Hunter lost left leg following strange smile (5, 6) Admiral (definition) = Hunter (PROWLER) lost (take away) left leg (left letter of leg is L) following (put afterwards) strange (anagram / mix around) smile (MILES). So, PROWLER minus L after MILES = MILES PROWER.
Obviously, these were based on the TIE Corps Admiralty. I didn't make it easy, there are a lot of different styles in there.
The current point totals are: Doyon 6 (bonus for first), Laan 3 (only answered one, but explained it), Dempsey 1 (correct but emailed everyone).
