What If Greedo Really Shot First?

What if instead of Han Solo shooting Greedo, it had been Greedo that had shot (and killed!) Han Solo? io9.com has put together this really brilliant opinion piece speculating on what could have happened.

With all the thousands of comics and books and cartoons related to Star Wars lately, there really should be a miniseries set in the alternate universe where Greedo shot first. And killed Han Solo, before Han could ever embark on his awesomely redemptive journey with Luke and Obi-Wan, leading to him becoming a General in the final battle against the Empire.

So what would have happened if Greedo had shot Han? Shot him DEAD? This is the sort of question to which we give far too much consideration, until we realize we have failed to leave the house for three days straight. Clearly this is an alternate universe story that must be told.
