Lol why is this allowed I know it's science fiction but damn.

LMAO WHAT???? ITS FANTASY HOLY SHIT
>implying I'd even consider joining rebel scum

X-Wings always had an edge over TIEs in every area bar maneuverability. TIE/sf (the Finn and Poe break out with) are obviously an attempt to counter X-Wings. Regular TIEs were designed to be mass produced and overwhelm opponents.
It's as cool as having fake vents on a car.
>Space opera is a subgenre of science fiction that emphasizes space warfare and melodramatic adventure. The term has no relation to music but is instead a play on the term "horse opera", which was coined during the heyday of silent movies to indicate clichéd and formulaic western movies.

Only regular ties, Interceptors and X-wings are much more evenly matched, sometimes usually in interceptors favor.
Good thing FO totally forgot about those and went back to regular tie fighters, with a few special forces ties having a backseat gunner though!
it's a legit tactic. the pilot performing the maneuver throttles back and tails behind the others in the flight group. this assures he is the first one shot while the others carry out the mission.
These are still canon apparently.
Why does tech design in Star Wars go from sleek to boxy and jagged to sleek again? They should have made everything in the prequels look like a big clunky version of the OT tech, comparable to computers now vs. how computers were in the 90s. Guess it does kind of make sense with the Republic becoming the Empire.
It's like in Star Trek where everything looked way cooler than in TOS. You may not understand what I'm talking about, then, think of the modern "simple" computer interfaces. The Metro lookalikes.
> each "genre" is like a box
> every film must be filed in a single box, with a label on it
Or, maybe, genres don't exist. And what you're thinking of are more like themes, and a film may contain many themes.
Dude, not him, but no. The nig monoliths are space fantasy-tier. Besides, everyone knows (even back then) that animals use tools all the time. That doesn't make humans specials. Even fucking birds use branches that they "sculpt" to get larva and shit.
It's not a jet. It has no turbines. They're ion engines, and those are the intakes.
ion = ionized particles = physical matter that's been ionized. The front of the engines colelcts what matter it can in atmospheres and uses it for propusion both in atmospheres and in space
Ships never made sense.
Like the cockpit in the Milienium Falcon. Where the fuck am I suppose to see anything?
