I mean honestly, a bit of plywood could've saved the lives of millions.
@Spetsnaz , or 2 half sized exhaust ports
@Spetsnaz , my idea would have been to have multiple exhaust points each with multiple redundant physical barriers specifically to protect against such a fatal flaw. Only one would be open at a time if the station was under attack, and the opening would constantly shift to a location where the battle was not taking place
@Spetsnaz , but you have to think about resale.
@Magnamon, By that logic, I would dance my way in and still explode the Death Star
@Spetsnaz , but let's be honest the death star is the size of a planet, would you expect them to find this one god damn hole?
@Spetsnaz , well it's an exhaust port, it needs to stay open. Plus that shot is literally impossible, it's not the engineers fault that the terrorists had a space wizard who could bend physics, in retrospect they did everything they could
@Spetsnaz , but you gotta think of the resale value. Plywood would just look terrible.
@Rowule, sheet metal then?
@RichardtheWarlock, They were getting estimates
@Spikeup12, or none at all, the ship is piloted by kinetic thrusters and powered by solar and nuclear energy, there is no need for an exhaust vent, only waste disposal shoot.
@The Megaton Bomb, so then luke skywalker wants to put his photon missile in my waste disposal shoot
@Magnamon, that or many small ports spread across the d.s. Making it so a blast wouldn't fit
@MyOdishIsNamedSyther, The "space wizard" is the best description of a jedi iv'e ever heard.
@Spetsnaz , as a Star Wars nerd I have to inform you guys of something. The man who designed the Death Star made this one weakness on purpose because he was forced to design it. He put it in as an "exhaust port" so no one would get suspicious. It was designed to have a single torpedo go down straight to the reactor
@Malorn13, go away EU!
@Magnamon, *hits intercom*
"Cindy, you hear me?"
"Yes Mr. Palpatine?"
"I want this man on payroll by lunch."
"Thy will be done Mr. Palpatine."
@Ewok612, I think with his expertise we will be ready for another Death Star! Third time is the charm
@MyOdishIsNamedSyther, a grate over the vent? That might've helped
@MyOdishIsNamedSyther, I thought it was a chain reaction that was made by the bombs blowing up, not actually traveling down the entire thing
@Ewok612, hello, random section. I come bearing news of Rogue One's addition to the SWU, so... yeah. For future commenters, yes.
@Kezryel, yeah, but say with a straight face "everything in Disney canon makes sense and is conducive to good filmcraft."
KingDaveTunes to the rescue with normal res pics.
It's not cannon anymore, but in the book "Death Star" it's implied the engineer that designed most of the Death Star didn't realize it was a weapon at first, and after he found out he purposefully built in weaknesses.
Ha! I needed that after all the microscopic updates
Where exactly is the Death Star falling...? *space*
This is my favorite gif. Ever.
