My question may be passed off as storytelling and im ok with that, im just looking for a consensus. In ROTJ when DeathStar 2 is blown apart, how is it that a primitive planet such as Endor is not pelted by incoming debris generated from the exploding deathstar? I thought about this long and hard and although the planet and the station were protected by an energy shield, said shield was disabled prior to the explosion. The DeathStar is huge and as far as i can tell , the diameter alone constitutes and extinction level impact on the planet. Most of it would be debris and not the whole station , but still shouldnt the planet have sustained major impacts?
Well, our real-word Earth's atmosphere burns nearly anything try enter (yes, there are exceptions), that would counter in I guess. Being only a moon, I'd assume the planet's pull would have pulled in the debris more to itself that its moon. Also, the Death Star II wasn't exactly on top of Endor.
You have to remember Star Wars is essentially fantasy. It has its own rules, which aren't always parallel with our own. Korsa3 16:56, February 3, 2011 (UTC)
As far as I remember, a some kind of wormhole was created upon the destruction of the Death Star and its hyperspace generator, and the stuff was sucked in there. Can be wrong, though. Perhaps read Endor Holocaust? 1358(Talk) 16:59, February 3, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks guys. Read the article on Endor apocalypse and that cleared some of it up. I guess we are going to have to chalk this one up to Imaginative story telling. Thanks again.
