Mugato: Bith Set Me Up: The second Death Star was made a few years after the first one annihilated a whole planet simply to prove a point. The contractors knew damn well what they were doing, so the "just trying to scrape out a living" argument is pure BS.

And the second Death Star was fully operational when it went into the battle of Endor, It's doubtful here were any workers there at all.


No, the main weapon was operational, not the full station. The superstructure was no where near complete. There were probably tons of workers still there.

\Though honestly they probably used droids for construction anyways

I figured they left it like that to make it look like it wasn't operational. And in the real military do they bring construction people along when they're going into battle? Anyway, if they did bring workers along, one pipe across that tunnel would have farked the rebels up.

skinink: Ed Grubermann: LesserEvil: CSB time...

As a kid, the only reason I knew Star Wars was coming out was because I bugged my Grandpa into buying me Starlog #7, which had awesome blueprints of the Space:1999 Eagle in it. The cover story was about some little sci-fi movie coming out soon called "Star Wars"

Saw it 4 times that year, three in the theater, one as a bootleg at somebody's condo in California (back then, people would have parties around the event and we watched on a fancy "big screen" CRT Rear Projection TV)

Four times? Wimp. I think I saw it 50 times before it left the last theater. (It was the only movie anyone wanted to watch that year.)

It seemed like the movie would never leave the theater. I remember walking by the movie place and Star Wars was still on the marquee. Nowadays I'm lucky to see a movie stay in the theaters for longer than a month.


This.

I still remember the movie page in the paper: "75th Big Week!"

Not so much blueprints as line drawings using white on blue. Blueprints often have dimensions and all kind of doodads.
