Re: Rogue One (Spoilers)

I have a question.. was Baze a Force sensitive (or super highly skilled shooter) using an amazing level of aim and trigger control to blast entire squads of Stormtroopers with a fully automatic blaster firing at its maximum cyclic rate, resulting in, as far as I can tell, no misses whatsoever? Or d...

Re: Rogue One (Spoilers)

But if you *are* going to destroy it in an attempt to stop a broadcast, for the love of Jeff hit the damn thing. ? The superlaser did hit the transmission tower. It sliced through it and continued on to hit the ocean in the distance. I'm certainly not a fan of the idea that a crashing ISD overloade...

Re: Rogue One (Spoilers)

The Shield Gate ends up a bit of a plot hole. We see that it makes the hole by sticking the arms into the shield and disrupting it, when it retracts them the shield springs to full integrity. So wouldn't they want to seize control of the gate, as blowing it up would mean there is no way to open a h...

They might have worried about signal jamming preventing them from doing something like that. Maybe they did both, tried sending out the plans via transmission while making a hard copy - unbeknownst to them, the transmission fails.

Re: Rogue One (Spoilers)

It's possible that the Rebellion is split up into cells with only the leaders knowing where the Rebel base is. But the opening crawl of ANH said "Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base , have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire." Granted, that doesn't mean the rebels all...

Re: Rogue One (Spoilers)

Another thing that bothered me was the continuity headache it created with ANH. Okay, so Vader assumed that the rebel spies transmitted the plans to the Tantive IV. I guess I can buy that. However, why was Leia his "only link" to finding their base? Given what we saw in this movie, it seems to me t...

Re: The Fifth Age (Mass Effect / The Secret World)

Normally Valern wouldn’t have bothered to inform the other Councilors about the particulars of an STG mission. While Sparatus had a certain understanding, Tevos often gave the impression that she didn’t much care for STG operations. However, recent developments were beyond the scope of the STG and t...

Re: Almost Human

Sometimes closed captioning includes descriptive information also. When his gun jammed or ran out of ammo it made a specific noise sounding like it was empty. I can see the descriptive part of sub captioning saying, "(malfunction)" to get the point across. It would be cool if it was meant the other...

Re: Almost Human

So, whenever I watch this show I can't help but imagine that it's a Dredd prequel of sorts, the line about spending "8 to 12 in the cubes" only fueled that idea more. So did the talking gun (at least, I think originally his gun is supposed to say "Malfunction" at some point, the closed captioning ke...

Re: Almost Human

Yeah, I never thought that it was a reasonable demand, Cpt. Maldonado first said something like "I'll have to contact someone else to get that." which just seemed like a stalling tactic rather than a "Oh, that's a sensible demand, let me get right on that." And, as Gaidin said, later on she flat out...
