>completely fucked the new republic in one shot from the outer rim
>got to see screaming innocents as they tasted the power of the sun
better than death star 2 imo. what did you guys think
who was the government? The First order or the republic?
Im guessing the empire controlled everything, then after Jedi, they lost a bunch of systems that formed their republic.
So now its this new republic vs the systems still in the old Empire, PLUS rebell forces still in the empires territory which is the resistance.
star wars doesn't respect relativity at all. It also operates as if light speed is instantaneous. So there's no infinite mass from moving at light speed and not a lot of travel time.
>Which planets did they blow up?
whatever planet the republic was on
I thought it was funny how easy it was for them. At least the death star had to pull up next to the planet and then charge up
They just fire this thing from whereever and the fucking sun finds the planet and blows it up
>why create super weapons when you can just destroy a planet by flying into it at lightspeed?
Exactly. The whole point of a shield around a planet is to stop this sort of thing from happening, otherwise the Empire could have just found a couple of kamikaze pilots instead of wasting money on the Death Star. But now that Han showed that you can fly right through it, the shields seem kind of useless.
Uhhh no. If they can attach hyper drives to planet sized battle stations why would you even need a super lazor? You could literally just start shooting planets at the capital from across the galaxy.
Starkiller is so fucking over the top it and logistically absurd it makes any kind of conventional weapons seem retarded.
You're not getting it. He's saying why even build a super lazor if you can just fly entire fucking planets across the galaxy like it's nothing. Shit why doesn't the republic capital planet have a hyper drive so it can just fly the fuck away.
Flying planets across the galaxy seems expensive, though. Seems like it would be easier to just build a couple Star Destroyers and crash them into a planet at faster-than-light speed.
Yeah the republic is portrayed as literal shit teir retards, the only way a truce with the empire could work is if there was mutually assured destruction, meaning as soon as the planets exploded a massive automated republic counter strike would occur to destroy any empire held planets.
Or the pubs can just get bodied over and over until they fly a space freighter with a nigger a wookie, an old man and a mary sue to destroy their whole setup.
I want to see this.
I want to see a Blackadder like crew of overplayed british characters look up into the bright sky, and remark that by jove, it does appear those houndish First order rascals are at it again, before ordering a servant to fire up the planet's hyperdrive, on the way to grabbig tea.
Not only was starkiller completely unnecessary to the plot as a whole, it just introduced negatives into the movie. The plot could have gone on just fine if those worlds hadn't been destroyed, starkiller base was just a normal base, and we didn't have to suffer through the whole collapsing-planet wank at the end
Plus, the whole aspect of it being a carved-out planet instead of a manmade object made it just different enough to be called different, which made things even cheaper
>Takes the Empire 2 decades and the pooled wealth and resources of the entire galaxy to make the death star
>Some backwater empire-worshiping cargo cult is able to make a planet-sized death star that is exponentially more powerful and sophisticated.
Also the "resistance" has the plans for said battle station but doesn't immediately alert republic command so they can mount a preemptive strike against an opponent that has been shown more then willing to indiscriminately destroy entire planets in the past.
