I they were still rebuilding the Death Star when it was destroyed the second time, does that mean that innocent contractors who were working on it were killed in the process?

And I forgot to add...

how did x-wings and tie fighters explode in fireballs in the vacuum of spacee
The combustion of the explosion was powered by the on-board oxygen supply, which was always massively overstocked just in case the ship was damaged and tumbled wildly off in to deep space. Vader was pretty smug about having accurately predicted this outcome and he lorded it over the entire Empire for several months. :)

They weren't innocent, they new who they were working for. If you work with the Mob don't be surprized if you get clipped, or caught in a drive by or something.;)

Oooh, got one...

If the transporters in Star Trek were real, then how could someone be removed from one space and be put in another without a resulting vaccuum effect in the place they left?

And how is it that all of the aliens on Star Trek speak english, even the ones in Enterprise, before they have the universal translators turned on?

Starting with TNG, the UTs were always turned on, only on DS9 did they have a few cases of the UT taking awhile to catch onto their syntax.

I've always believe that the UT has an adaptive holography system small enough to fit into a combadge :)

If you had the chance, would you put your brain in a robot body? You'd only be 5 feet tall, but you'd have the strength of 5 men .... no wait, 5 gorillas.

Regarding Star Trek translators, how come some of the alien terms are pronounced in their native toungue?

(Not sure if this actually happened but...)say Warf was talking talking to a crew member then started talking to his brother. He talks in Klingon to his brother so why is the translator selective?

How would these all these Trekkies be able to speak in Klingon if the translators were working properly? It should translate everything but proper names.

"It's impossible, Lois could never have Superman's baby. Do you think her fallopian tubes could handle the sperm? I guarantee you he blows a load like a shotgun right through her back. What about her womb? Do you think it's strong enough to carry his child? He's an alien, for Christ sake. His Kyrptonian biological makeup is enhanced by earth's yellow sun. If Lois gets a tan the kid could kick right through her stomach. Only someone like Wonder Woman has a strong enough uterus to carry his kid. The only way he could bang regular chicks is with a kryptonite condom. But that would kill him." -Mallrats

:laugh::laugh::laugh: My personal favorite geek argument.
