why in star wars wen ships are damaged they are on fire but there u=is no oxogen in space meaning that there can be no fire
Oxygen is aboard starships. However, the volume and duration of flame in Star Wars is because George Lucas chose to ignore physics. While we're at it, in space no one can hear you scream. Karohalva 05:47, April 4, 2011 (UTC)
The explaination for the sound effects is that inside the ships there exist...noise-makers that analyze the ships surroundings and simulate sounds for the pilot's benefit. One can only wonder how they collected the sample scream. NaruHinaTalk 06:37, April 5, 2011 (UTC)
Sure, guys, that is quite true about star wars the clone wars, (that's why I don't watch them much, full of mistakes...but any way the movies, the flame didn't last that long...) here's a real question, why in TCWs series, the ship still has fire after a hyperspace jump or even a microjump?
can i ask who cares if on star wars the laws of physics are broken etc besides the fire thousands of features on star wars would never work in real life for example on attack of the clones and revenge of the sith you see acclamators and venators in the skies of geonosis coruscant and utapau realistically it would be impossible for a ship that size to be able enter a planets atmosphere without ending up like the invisible hand. another thung about star wars being unrealistic basically every ship starfighter and the gunships would never work in real life the only ship that could probably work is the hardcells
Anyway, I speculate that space in the GFFA is chock full of aether, in keeping with its old-school science fantasy roots, and that this aether carries sound and burns just like air. The fact that there's an etheric rudder in-universe might bear this out. DD97Which bear is best? 13:37, June 14, 2011 (UTC)
Grr, I still want to slap whoever decided this should be anything more than the description used for the yaw control pedals in a vehicle that lacks an actual rudder. jSarek 21:49, June 14, 2011 (UTC)
