    Ok, so the Death Star can blow up planets yes?

    Ok, so the rebels are hiding on a moon on the opposite side of Yavin yes?

    Why didn't the Empire just blow up Yavin instead of wasting time circling around it????

    Because they didn't know they were there, they'd need some sort of special power and ability to "sense" them and someone very powerful and skilled to be able to detect them with this "ability"................Oh............hang on.

    You've just ruined it all for me Kieron.:D

    Because it would have put a nix on episode 1-3, cartoons, comics, books, that rubbish animated attempt and collectable figurines?

    :devil:'s advocate

    Because Yavin was a gas planet - with the rebel base on one of it's moons.

    The death star couldn't destroy gas planets, only...... eerm solid ones.

    Probably.

    1 week recharge time on the li-ion battery's.

    You try finding a charging point in space.




    What? The new death star in episode VI had constant fire? Well yeah of course that was hard wired into the power grid on endor of course. :devil:

    The previous poster was correct.
    Yavin was a giant gas planet that could not have destroyed by the death stars weapon system, but it's moon (With the rebel base) was solid, making it suitable for destruction!

    the question that should be answered is how come the Incom T65 (X wing) has hyperdrive capabilities, but TIE fighter does not!:confused:

    Tie fighters are cheap mass produced and disposable (since the empire consider its troops disposable)

    They also dont have any shields.

    That doesn't make financial sense at all!
    It must have cost the empire at least a couple of million republic credits to train each pilot. This combined with the construction costs of the two death stars must have put a serious economic strain on their abilities to rule the galaxy!

    Maybe the rebels should have just bided their time and waited for the empire to become insolvent!:rolleyes:

    Or got someone else with a bit more financial savvy to wear the emporers black cape of evil!
