bravian: ha-ha-guy: Also SW suffers in that every official game, comic book, and novel is canon. So dozens of authors have gotten to further butcher the physics of SW over the past decades. People try to retcon it into something uniform, but it's pointless to a degree.

Nope. Lucas has stated that certain books, games, and comic books are not canon and he will ignore them at will when developing new projects.

/as he did with the god awful prequels


Uh, do you know what the fark you are talking about?

Star Wars has a very elaborate canon system.

Only a tiny number of things are completely non canon, and they are almost always marked by the "Infinities" logo, such as some comic books that gave "what if" scenarios if something in the movies went a different way (like if Luke died on Hoth, or if Leia used the Thermal Detonator on Jabba)

The vast majority of Star Wars material is at the "C" level of canon, for continuity. Every random book out there, every random comic book is almost certainly at this level. The only things higher are projects he personally worked on (the movies, that godawful Clone Wars series I really wish they'd cancel immediately). The things that are lower "S" canon (for Secondary) are things that couldn't fit as a whole but individual plot or setting elements might be salvageable.

Yes, George Lucas can override any of it, but the can even override his own stuff and make Expanded Universe authors fret as they try to retcon it all to make sense (like implying the Republic is ~25,000 years old in Star Wars by saying the Jedi defended the Republic for "over 1000 generations" while Palpatine in Episode I said the Republic was only 1000 years old. Retcon: The Republic is over 25,000 years old, but went through a major reorganization 1000 years ago and was legally/technically a different government).

He obviously uses stuff from the Expanded Universe materials. The name Coruscant for the capital world of the Republic & Empire was from the Thrawn Trilogy novels by Timothy Zahn. Lucas originally wanted to call that planet Jhrantor, as a homage to Trantor from Asimov's works, but he decided to go with what the novelists had already done. He has also vetoed things from novels that he wouldn't allow. In those Thrawn Trilogy novels, an insane clone of Obi Wan Kenobi was going to appear as a villain, but Lucas nixed it and it was replaced with an insane clone of an obscure relatively similar Jedi Master.

Mugato: ununcle: Fisher's clearly insane now but I degress

I've met her and she might be a little "off" because of her pharmaceutical past but she's very bright and very funny and self deprecating as opposed to being a pompous dick like Shatner.

/loves Trek, loves Shatner but he's a pompous dick


I disagree. Everything Shatner does now is poking fun at himself and his over the top image. That's why he has to show his "muscle" but let on that he is old and fat. Maybe that does not resonate with you, but that is what he is doing. He purposefully cultivates the "dick" image for the comedic aspects, but I guess not everyone gets it.

Prequels would have been a million times better if he ran the scripts through Zahn first.

Lcas's problem is he can't stop shooting himself in the foot. Things like how Obi Wan is there when the twins are born and everyone decides to go into hiding, but in Empire he's shocked when Yoda mentions "Hey we have a plan B still". Or like how you can figure out of someone is force sensitive with a simple blood test. Yet no one from the Empire ever drops by to check the folks named Skywalker out on Tatooine. You think you'd keep an eye on that bloodline.

1. First of all, it's "lasers", not "lazers".

2. And Star Destroyers don't just have laser. They have turbolasers, and a lot more. Here's the standard armament of an Imperial II-class Star Destroyer:

Octuple barbette turbolaser or Ion cannons (8)
Heavy turbolaser batteries (5)
Turbolaser batteries (5)
Additional turbolaser batteries (26+)
Heavy ion cannons (20)
Phylon Q7 tractor beam projectors (10)

And let me point out that turbolaser bolts can obliterate small asteroids, and it has been calculated that a single Star Destroyer turbolaser bolt has about the same output as the bomb that took out Hiroshima.
source

3. Star Destroyers DO have deflector shields that are at least as powerful as those on Galaxy-class ship from Star Trek.

4. Star Destroyers also carry fighters and other ships. Here's a standard complement:
TIE starfighters (72)
Lambda-class shuttles (8)
Delta-class stormtrooper transports (15)
Assault gunboats (5)
A variable number of GAT-12 Skipray Blastboats
Gamma-class assault shuttle (1+)
Repair and recovery vehicles
AT-AT barges
AT-AT walkers (20)
AT-ST walkers (20)
Various ground vehicles
Prefabricated garrison bases

5. A Star Destroyer has more than just one guy manning the weapons console, too. They have an entire crew (37,085) that is dedicated to the operation of the ship, and a good chunk of that crew is actually manning weapons bays and consoles. They're assisted by targeting computers, but since the Star Destroyer has at least 64 heavy weapons emplacements on the top, bottom, sides, front and back of the ship, they've got a distinct need for more than just one fellow firing the one main gun, as in a Galaxy-class ship.

This is no contest. The Enterprise has been shown to be incapable of even destroying a single small asteroid. A Star Destroyer has been shown blasting asteroids into dust with minimal effort.

The ONLY advantage the Galaxy-class ship has over the Star Destroyer is transporter technology, which any Trek fan knows is baffled by shields; If either ship has shields up, it won't work. I guarantee you the Imperials aren't going to drop their shields, and even if they did, beaming a proton torpedo onto their bridge wouldn't stop them. Why? There are auxiliary command posts, for one, and a Star Destroyer doesn't put all its most important equipment and personnel in just one place on the ship.

On top of that, these things have TEN tractor beam projectors, and two large docking clamps/claws that are used to capture ships a lot bigger than a Galaxy-class starship.

In truth, I doubt a Galaxy-class starship could stand up to a Corellian CR90 corvette, much less an Imperial Star Destroyer.

You sound serious. I am taking you seriously.
I am taking the hypothetic space battle serious too.
This is serious!

1) Star Destroyers do have shields
2) They don't use actual lasers
3) Trek has never used the transporter as a weapon as they could have easily done, especially with those Borg ships that let them beam in and out at will

/end geek rant


the Enterprise and the Star Trek Universe uses battleship tactics, Star wars and BSG use Aircraft carrier tactics,


how many battleships can one carrier destroy? lets ask the Japanese from the battle of midway.

I know I'm being a history nerd in a thread full of sci-fi nerds, but there were no battleships sunk at Midway.

OK maybe the sinking of the Yamato would have been a better example of mighty one battleship vs. tens of small fighters.

Not really, as the Yamato was simply thrown at the enemy intending to sacrifice itself in a hopeless battle just to buy time in order to fortify the Japanese mainland. It didn't even carry enough fuel for the return trip.

The Battle of Taranto is probably the best historical match, as it was the first decisive air to ship engagement and heralded the rise of naval aviation over the battleship.

No ewoks were involved in either battle.


Taranto was first but the targets, as at Pearl Harbor, were anchored. Sitting ducks.
A more convincing case for the twilight of the big gun navy was either the sinking of the Repulse and Prince of Wales off Malaya or the sinking of the Musashi at Leyte Gulf. They were fully armed and crewed and at full speed in fairly open seas. They merely lacked air cover.

That sounds like Ben managed to totally forgot about Leia or was really senile in the Jedi afterlife since 900 year old Yoda needs to remind him he was there for the birth of Leia.

Oh, and there is this game Gratuitious Space Battles that has a Star Trek and Star Wars mod. I hadn't played in a while, but this game prompted me to fire it back up. I do remember that the Empire SW mod was WAY overpowered. The creator was obviously biased, he did the ST one too, IIRC.

ACTUALLY,

1. It can be lazers or lasers, according to my sister, a lexicographer, can be either depending on localisation.

2. Agreed, Star Destroyer lazers can destroy SMALL asteroids, but are on a twenty-five minute cooldown. Star Trek Lasers can fire continuously.

3. Star Destroyers deflector shields can only deflect energy-based weapons. This means you could literally fire a rifle shot at a port hole and suck it's inhabitants into space. Star Trek shields deflect EVERYTHING.

4. Both can carry other ships.

5. Star Destroyers require a full crew to operate; a Galaxy-class Starship can fly solo. How exactly can an armada of shiatty Star Destroyers hold against a full fleet of Galaxy-class starships?

That's right, they couldn't.

Thread over.

Obi-Wan knew this much about the female twin: she was taken to Alderaan.

Of course, that's one workaround. Continuity became a convoluted mess when the prequels came out.

Or that Obi Wan spent the last 20 years looking after Luke hoping he'd be the one, writing Leia off as a Princess that according to Luke's vision is probably dead. Yoda maintains that she's still a viable candidate.

Padme was made to look like she was preggers when she died. It's a big galaxy and Tattoine is obviously known as a planet that doesn't keep records. The Emperor didn't sense that Anakin had a kid until Luke first used the Force.

That's definitely the best work around. Of course it gets weird in that Obi Wan's next comment isn't in the vein of "Oh she survived, awesome" or "How did she survive?". I figure it's like the parsec thing or Vader being Luke's father. Lucas came up with it at the last minute and shoved it, then came up with some weird way to rationalize it.

You'd think some droid that was processing census data would have lit up like a Xmas tree when that one came up.


You really think an out-of-the-way dirthole like Tatooine is going to have detailed census data reported back to the Empire? I always figured Obi Wan put Luke on Tatooine for 2 reasons:

1. It's so backwater and undeveloped that the Empire will not pay too close attention to who was there. Heck, Obi Wan himself lived in a shack there for almost 20 years as the Empire tried to hunt the Jedi to extinction, and never found him.

2. Tatooine is too tied to Anakin's memories of his childhood and his mother that the entire planet is like a painful memory to him, he would never go there. As literally the last place in the Galaxy that Vader would ever look, it would be the first place to hide.

Although, since before he met Obi-Wan, kept talking about wanting to transmit his application to the Imperial Naval Academy, I always wondered about the "what if" Luke actually applied. I would think the name "Skywalker" would flag pretty hard in Imperial systems and his application would be accepted immediately. In fact, some very helpful Stormtroopers would be there to escort him there.

I love when people geeking out about this stuff say "thread over".

Mugato: So many people with the same jibes about people bullshiatting about sci-fi not getting laid, going out of their way to convince everyone that they are. Are you a THX theater? Because you're projecting like a motherfarker.


You seem. . . tense. You know what would ease your tension?

If you can't have the original, Adrianne Curry is available and will work just fine.

ha-ha-guy: That's definitely the best work around. Of course it gets weird in that Obi Wan's next comment isn't in the vein of "Oh she survived, awesome" or "How did she survive?".


How do you know it wasn't? Yoda's "there is another" was the last line on the scene. We don't know what the two of them talked about after Luke flew off.
