    Bit of Star Wars trivia for you guys. DYKT: If the Millenium Falcon (Han Solo's ship) were to be built today, it wouldn't be able to fly because the aerodynamics are all wrong? :haha:

    It doesnt require aerodynamics because it flies in space 99% of the time? It flies in atmooshpere with the help of repulsorlifts and engines, not the bernoulli principle? ;)

    ROTFL!! :haha:

    DYKT : You cannot hear sound in space. So, if we ever have space battles, it's a guarantee you will be very disappointed by the lack of the "piu! piu!" sounds from your laser guns! :haha:

    For that matter, people aren't supposed to be able to breathe in space either :nuts:

    But then again, this all takes place in a galaxy far, far away. Maybe it's different there... :think:

    Actually, breathing in space is still believable because they can have pressurized cabins.

    And look at the TIE fighter pilots. They carry their own oxygen supply. ;)

    Hehe, yeaps, they have pressurised cabins. And those open bays on Star Destroyers and Star Cruisers have magnetic containment fields to keep oxygen and the heat in.

    Hahahaha!!! Especially after he sold out to Disney. But then again, that may be the best thing he could have done.

    I think he was so beholden to his legacy that he didn't dare to try anything new with the Star Wars franchise. So in a way, it's good that he has cut the Gordian knot so that someone else make take a fresh crack at the Star Wars universe. :D

    Star Trek 2009 was good and I expect Into the Darkness to be better. But the general viewers who derides Star Trek for trying to emulate Star Wars, how would they react to this :haha:
