The Death Star was an inside job.
« on: October 23, 2015, 08:00:07 PM »
I mean think about it, how does one escort fighter manage to hit a hole the size of a womp rat when bombers had already failed to do so? Let's not forget that this was all supposedly accomplished by some moisture farmer from the ass end of the galaxy who had never so much as touched an Incom T-65 in his life until then, yet somehow made a shot that his own flight leader couldn't pull off?

Then there's the issue of the station's defenses. Why did Governor Tarkin hold off deploying the station's fighters until it was too late? Why did Darth Vader, who is supposedly the father of the above pilot, break protocol to pilot a TIE Fighter himself and just happen to be a safe distance from the Death Star when it exploded?

This was obviously an inside job. Vader obviously planted charges all throughout the station, overruled Tarkin's orders to prevent the other fighters being scrambled, and then escaped in his own fighter, timing the explosions so they could conceivably have been caused by the rebels. When you consider the rumors that Vader tried to link up with his son many times, and that said son now leads the new Jedi Order, it's clear that this was all a result of Vader's own vanity. Darth Vader killed millions of people for the sake of extremely convoluted nepotism.

Spread the truth.

Heaven is no more than a carrot on a string at the end of a tunnel; Hell is no more than a gunbarrel at the back of your head.  When we are good people for the sake of being good people, we\'ll have no further use for religion.

The shot was physically impossible.  Impossible for a human.  I'm not saying Gungans did it, I'm just saying that we hold a couple for enhanced questioning and then see how far we want to take it.

Meh. In our quaint time period we can build a missile- Sidewinder III- that can hit a high speed target shot from a high speed launch vehicle with such accuracy that it is virtually 95% reliable. And a missile that can be launched from a high altitude weapons platform- GBU 24- and hit a target dozens of miles away, again with pinpoint accuracy. If an X Wing fighter can't hit a still target on dead approach without the use of The Force, doesn't say much about their weapons platform or their skills.

In the Star Wars universe, the technology is a bit strange.  Everything looks heavily used yet still functional.  And there appear to be long periods of technological stasis, from the looks of things in the original trilogy.
