Manic Monday Bonus--How Many Quatloos In A Dollar?

We all know that the most important part of any science fiction epic... translating your alien currency units into dollars. How could we possibly enjoy the story without an editor's note giving us this important fact?!?

That's why Star Wars sucks--because we're never told how much the 17,000 credits promised to Han Solo translates to in American currency! What lazy storytelling....
