Re: Star Wars: Rebels

But those are replaceable losses. As long as Rebel leadership survive, they can always rebuild and grow in size. Are you sure you're not fanboi a bit here? What do you want? Thrawn to kill off the main characters and the show to end? And villain will have the same problems in this setting. Hell, Va...

Re: A question about the Earth-Romulan War

Meh, I have my own head cannon for it. ST ENT has nothing to do with it. It really sucked on that front, and many others to the point I don't recognize ST ENT as back story to the Star Trek universe. It was B&B blatant and horrific attempt to write the OT out of existence and pretend their abort...

Re: Everything Not Quite Right With - The End Scenes from Rogue One SPOILERS and yes its contains the Vader scene!

It was a nice mix of a character from OT they never had a chance to show bad ass like that in wire fu Michel Bay style shit and PT era super jumpy hopy shit.

Re: Favorite Star Wars protagonist?

Finn is nice in that he is fairly likable overall, but has the drawback that his lack of competence at points makes him less credible as a hero. Where does Finn fall on the competence area? Mostly a script issue where they don't know where to go with the character. At first he is a Stormtrooper, as...

Re: You are in charge of settling Forest World (RAR!)

One point I think you're missing is that the coastal areas are precisely where the megatrees thrive; they're more like super-mangroves and less like super-redwoods. The coastlines aren't clear , although it's not clear whether there are other lesser forms of vegetation and general terrain clutter t...

Going to have to make some assumptions, like what were the colonists expecting as far as a planet. Were they expecting a planet of this particular size and composition. Were they expecting the atmosphere roughly that was discovered upon arrival? What kind of prefabed like stuff did they bring with t...

Re: Favorite Star Wars protagonist?

I always thought of Han Solo more as a supporting character, albeit a very, very good one. But I guess he did get his own EU books back in the day, and he's going to get a spin-off film shortly, so I guess he counts. Cool. I view the OT as an assemble cast with Han, Luke, and Leia having equal part...

Han Freak'n Solo man.

Obi Wan from TPH to ROTJ would be my second choice. Out of 7 films with the main story, he's been in 6. His appearance in The Clone Wars was fantastic as well. Truly the 'perfect' Jedi.

Re: How will sleeper ships travels be funded?

Such a mission would have to begin by supporting itself from a small outlay. Basically we'd send a completely automated thingamajigg into the asteroid belt or some other suitable location and it'd start mining asteroids and stuff and build the colony ship on it's own. Then when it goes *ping* it's ...

Re: How will sleeper ships travels be funded?

Even more than the problem of funding - we don't have any sort of "sleeper" technology. I know. This is just some purely theoretical idea. The problem with many of those theoretical ideas is people often neglect to think about how those technology will be funded. If you have the tech to p...

Re: What are the "core values" of the Democratic Party?

They need to start basic then expand. Start with 'We are for the middle class, the working men and women of America' and then develop planks in their agenda that support this. I know, I know. They are supposed to be that already, but we know they aren't. It will take time and actual effort on their ...

Re: Conspircy theory question about Acetaminophen in opioids

Also, is no one going to give me a hard time about how SO MANY fighters can fit into the Escort Carrier? No? :P No, presumable it's a dedicated frame for that purpose. No huge reactor for weapons, not a combatant that needs shields and armor. It's a movable box filled with fighters. I almost see it...

Because the winners of the Clone Wars were the companies, not necessarily the CEO's, but the companies. The intro to ANH was pretty implicit in this, the military industrial complex and boot lickers did well in the Empire.

Nope I hate the damn fool thing. Besides the Akira-prise issue, it has absolutely nothing in common with a Connie or any other TOS/TOS movie ship. The NX is more of a prequel ship for TNG as if B&B wanted to forget the TOS and replace it with ENT. Stylistically it has pretty much nothing to do w...
