3. That one was controlled by the bad side of the force. It's not the battle station, it's the captain.

6. Star Wars Geek Mode on

No, the first death star was completely destroyed by Luke Skywalker. The second death star was commissioned by the Emperor shortly thereafter based on revised plans that increased the scale of the battle station and would eliminate the original death star's fatal flaw. The second death star was unfinished at the time of the rebel attack, most effort going into bringing the primary laser on-line to surprise the rebels when they made a desperate attack baited by the Emperor himself. To make up for its lack of a finished outer shell, the second death star was protected by a powerful energy shield projected from the forest moon it orbited.

Geek mode OFF. Sorry

7. I think to make up for a lack of a finished outer shell, they shouldn't have made fighter ship...

...sized tunnels leading to the one place that, if hit, would blow up the they station.

Also, the teddy bears beat the trained and ruthless soldiers? What the hell?

These are just common nit picks mind you. I love Star Wars.

11. Well, the Empire didn't consider the possibility

that the rebel strike force that landed on Endor would be able to destroy the shield generator. Remember, it was all a set-up and they actually had the rebels dead to rights until the Ewoks showed up and counter-ambushed. And Ewoks were VICIOUS little bastards! They were going to EAT HAN and LUKE!!!

17. sadly, the result was an eco-catastrophe on Endor

The circumstances at the end of Return of the Jedi lead inevitably to an environmental disaster on the Endor moon. The explosion of a small artificial moon in low orbit sends a meteoric rain onto the ewok sanctuary, on a scale unmatched since Endor formed. Through either direct atmospheric injection of small particles, or showers of ejecta from large impacts, the atmosphere will be filled with smoke and fallout causing a gargantuan nuclear-winter effect.

9. I can see that pic prominently displayed on a Sith website.

Maybe not the best thought-out concept. Good execution, though.
