What do you mean that isn't how that went? No, no, no, we saw the EA ships get within spitting distance of the Minbari countless times, if all it took was detonating a 2 MT nuke in their general vicinity, surely the E-M war was a close fought battle that cost the Minbari dearly. Oh. Huh. Well, then I guess the Blackstar must have been a fluke.
Did this guy ever watch Babylon 5?Adarx Post 122 wrote: Unless Sheridan went out in a space suit, flew over to the Minbari ship carrying the nuke with him, knocked on the docking port while saying "candygram for Mr. Bonehead" the visuals aren't the problem. Unless you could basically land the bomb on the hull, it does nothing to solve the problem of if area effect weapons of a yield that low were consistently effective against the Minbari, it is insane to think the EA wouldn't have had other victories just by spamming nuclear weapons into their general area, or have at least tried a nuclear minefield/salvo at the battle of the line. The only rational inference to be drawn is the Black Star is not a representative event otherwise none of that war makes sense.
1) Sheridan took out a total of 4 Minbari warships. It wasn't a fluke.
2) "In The Beginning" is a story told by Londo as a means to inspire hope in some children. It is basically a peace of in-unverse realistic fiction, and therefore should not be taken as being 100% accurate.
1) Can't we see from the differences shown in episode 1 and episode 4 that Tatooine is seemingly in a depression / recession? Everything basically goes from shiny and new to worn and barely serviceable.evilauthor Post 126 wrote: For all we know from Disney Canon, the SW galaxy could have been going through an economic depression during the OT era. But we'd never know it because all we have of that era is three movies featuring...
1) A princess from some planet that (she claims) us completely unarmed.
2) A farm boy from the back end of nowhere.
3) A smuggler and his furry friend.
4) A pair of Jedi who have been living as hermits for the past 20 years or so.
5) The leaders of the Empire.
These are all people who are the LEAST likely to be affected by downturns in the economy. Except Lando maybe. We just never see how the common people are living in the OT since the focus is largely on the Empire and Rebels. Heck, we don't even get to see a major world in the OT except for one short scene in the remastered RotJ.
Well we saw Alderaan. Briefly. Before it got blown up.
The closest thing we see to economics in the OT is Uncle Owen buying droids, Han Solo needing cash to pay off Jabba the Hutt, and Vader hiring bounty hunters.
2) If a place like Tatooine is having hard times then wouldn't it stand to reason that everyone else as well?
3) While a senator, Padme was unable to pay her personnel aids a living wage during the Clone Wars, and it is implied that there is a large percentage of the capital's population is on public assistance.
