Default Execute Order 66... (Psionic Suppressions)

So here's an interesting thing I just noticed. In the wikipedia, it talks about the Suppression Orders being issued for the Psionic Institutes:

Quote:
Sixty-five suppression orders were issued, numbers 2 through 66 (SO 1 was a general order to the realm concerning the issue)
So the last Suppression Order was Order 66.

Have you ever wondered if George Lucas was a fan of Traveller? Wouldn't that be awesome if the Emperor's Order to wipe out the Jedi in the Star Wars movies was an homage to the Psioncs Suppressions in the oldest science fiction role-playing game?

Coincidence?
