    I heard it was intentional sabotage

    One of the lead designers was working for the enemy

    And we can trust the source... a lot of brave people lost their lives getting us this information... it was the only decent new Star Wars movie in a while...

    It is rather funny that the intentionally designed weakspot is only vulnerable to an absurdly lucky shot or a shot guided by space magic and not something more exploitable.

    Hollywood revisionist propaganda bullcrap! They only showed the last blow to make it appear it was brought down by one guy, the "Hero", conveniently ignoring all the damage it had taken over the course of the long battle.

    It's perfectly exploitable by standard shot

    It's just that terrorists in question opted to use space magic instead of computer after previous one lucked out

    If you are the lead designer and want to sabotage it but not have it blow up when first test fired perhaps you should just design the dish is a way that would cause it to catastrophically fail if it recieved any battle damage and if questioned claim that you cannot see any way around it. Or better just include a disguised self destruct in the air vents and tell your rebel friends about it, due to their policy of abducting nearby craft rather than firing on the getting on the death star would be rather easy.

    A shaft that long is a 1 in 10 000 000 shot and they only attempted it out of desperation and only succeeded because of the force and
    their plot armor.

    That is what I would always think when seeing capital ships be defeated by attackers at point blank range, that and get some bloody missiles on your ships.

    I think this discussion needs to move it is continues as it is Off Topic ... of course you would think the easiest way to destroy something the size of a deathstar is to build a ship slightly bigger than the Millenium Falcon and load up the empty space with containers of anti matter and then from 50 light minutes away make the calculations for light speed directly towards the death star and have it come out of hyperspace/light speed inside the death star... or at least past its shields.

    If the armour is as rubbish as the armour worn by the Storm Troopers it should be easy to take out...

    Moving to its own thread in the General chat section....

    Actually once you work out where the weak spot is it would not be that hard to turn it in to a trap and also at the same time put a few kinks down the port tube so even a successful hit wont get to the reactor..... and in the trench leading up to the vulnerable point for 1km in both directions along that trench (so the roof shielding is 2km long) from the point and back you could have shields over the top like a roof so no spacecraft flying down the trenches could climb up and away and escape and no Millenium Falcon can come down at the last second and save the day... and then 100m before the vulnerable point in both directions have a wall shield so the spacecraft could only stop and turn around and leave the way they came with no chance of firing any weapon into the port... by which time laser cannons in the trench can open fire and destroy all the attacking pilots... who will be the best pilots the rebels have of course...

    You could add a poll on top about which of 11 Star Wars movies is the best​

    Let's have some fun

    Just ditch Solo, I doubt it's anyone's favorite (if it is it would barely count as rounding error)

    I remember someone comparing the two... Star Wars and Star Trek... they described Star Wars as a rollercoaster with long bits that create story and then periods of excitement... they described Star Trek as more like Sub warfare.

    I have made this thread a poll about Star Wars so perhaps a new thread for Star Trek? Smile
