Dissolve the Senate? Yes, please. It has always been profoundly antidemocratic but now it is nothing but a huge impediment to governance.

We can't even go back to the moon and they want to build a new moon. (Insert "That's not a moon that's a space station" joke here...) [getalifemorans.jpg]


That's NO moon.

At least get the joke right asshat.

durbnpoisn: The captain has turned on th Nerd Light...

I've often wondered about the 2nd Death Star. According to the title crawl it was supposed to be bigger and more powerful than the first. Yet, the first one blew up an entire planet with a single shot. The 2nd one destoyed a few large cruisers, and that was it. You'd think the laser was that strong, it would cut directly through the hull of multiple cruisers with each shot.

//That is all.


IIRC, the big feature of the second one was variable power out of its laser. In that it could fire out multiple lower powered bursts, with each burst capable of vaporizing a capital warship. With the first one, you got planet destroying beam, followed by a long ass recharge cycle. No other options. So with the first one, had it been at Endor, it would have gotten off one shot, fried whatever was in the path of the beam and that would have been that.

I'm all for messing with politicians, but actually building a Death Star would be Really Freakin' Expensive.

How about just a petition to dissolve the Senate?
