Original Death Star

It seems to me that the exhaust vent was a major oversight by palpatine... so were the lack of fighter defense etc.. could it be that palpatine meant for it to be destroyed?

Thumbs up

Possibly, as he could have made the plans for the next Death Star. So he delibrately made visible weaknesses so he could devise an even greater weapon, although it never worked out that way...





Or he never knew Obi-Wan was still alive (I believe he is the one wo says its a big space station, if I'm not mistaken, or Han :S). Therefore would never think anyone would realise as they weren't Jedi or had Jedi Powers of sense and sight.

Or he didn't realise how out of place it actually looked

i doubt Palpatine intended for it to be destroyed. There doesn't seem to be any motive. Also, it was hardly a "major oversight". There was a tiny exhaust port, hardly a crippling weakness.

I doubt very much he wanted it destroyed.

Let's face it, why would he?

And I doubt very much he knew anything about something as trivial as an exhaust port.

The Empire was arrogant, just look at the many many large vessels emploid by the Empire. Most military officers wanted large ships, to great horror for the treasurers I might ad , while caring little for fighter pilots. Time and again, they refused to accept that they needed better fighters with more defensive capabilities, such as shields. The success of the TIE design though was to have it be as small as possible, therefor such energy sucking systems as a shield generator would increase it's size (as is evident in both the Avenger and Defender).

The TIE Advanced x1 do prove that they were looking into shielded, and hyperspace capabilities, but the side project that spawned out from that research was the TIE Interceptor. While it was equipped with angled solar/radiator wings to make the side profile smaller, and new ion engines, plus added firepower which suggest a better reactor but of the same size, it still lacked defensive systems such as shields. And hyperdrives.

TIE Interceptor really is just an improved TIE Fighter, with little "new" systems in it, just upgraded systems.
Cheap, easily maintainable fighters, and provides more funding for larger ships, such as the Lancer Frigate, which they could develop since they ended up producing TIE Interceptors instead of the more expensive TIE Advanced (later dubbed TIE Avenger). Of course, the Lancer Frigate was a flopp, and didn't really perform as well against fighters which is what it was made for in the first place.

Anyway, I'm rambling , like I said, the Empire is/was arrogant.

now, if they truly wanted to be a superpower, they should have had nothing but one SSD for a control base, and put all their other money into Interceptors

I think that aside from diverting funds to bigger ships, they wanted to focus on quantity rather than quality (ironically the opposite of what they do with capital ships, go figure), as is evidenced by the swarms of TIEs in the battle of Endor.

He didn't release the info abouth the first Death Star, he only did this with the second one because it was part of his plan. This way he could trick the Alliance into thinking the Death Star was vulnerable and get them into a trap.

But he didn't foresee the primitive Ewoks to be a threat and because of that the shields were taken down which led to the breakdown of his entire plan.

Again, his overconfidence is his weakness.

The exhaust port wouldn't have been able to be penetrated without the Force aiding Luke's aim and timing. If it wasn't for the Force, the exhaust port would be impossible to hit - so it probably didn't make the designers consider it a weakness.

Still, Tarkin should have listened to Chief Bast and evacuated when he had the chance. But who knows... maybe it was for the better. One less arrogant officer in the fleet.

Tarkin was a good, loyal man, however, it wouldn't have been impossible to hit the vent without the force... just highly improbable, there is a distinct difference. Wedge or Baron Soontir Fel could have done it IMO

Wedge couldn't even make it all the way through the trench run, let alone hit the exhaust port


What I never really understood about their attack plan was the whole flying through the trench plan..

Why didn't they approach the exhaust port from a perpendicular angle and then had a straight shot into it? The Rebels are poor tacticians

now, lets think about the problems with flying in perpendicular:

You would leave yourself very open to the surface guns, they would slaughter you, after you fired, you would have to pull out, and then reverse direction, so the would have had to pull out into the trench, even worse IMO...

Or they could pull out and get slaughtered by the surface guns again... sounds dumb

because if they had flown straight at it all the surface guns could have blown them out of the air with little or no difficulty. It seems that the computer had miscalculated, not that the pilots couldn't get the timing right (not to say they could without it), and it is possible that they do it without the force, but as RC said, very unlikely.

They had to come into the Death star at a perpendicular angle no matter how they did to get into the trench. It's a sphere.

ever hear of a tangent?, or , for that matter, any angle less than 90 degrees, take a ball, and hold a pen tip to it, you can change the angle of the pen and still keep the pen touching....

Yeah, but if a ball has a hole in it, then that hole is gonna be a lot bigger when viewed from the top then the side. It also has a little bit of a different effect when the ball is big enough to look like it is flat. And if you were trying to stick a pen through the hole, it would be a lot easier from above. I'm sticking with the turbolaser evasion theory.

i was just saying that there are other ways to approach a sphere then just perpendicular like ET warrior said. yes you would have the biggest target, but it would be stupid, you would be dead very very quickly, plus, the trench is so cool

You can come in tangent to a POINT on the sphere, but you're still going to be perpendicular to two other points on it, no matter your approach.

I'm not saying the trrench run shouldn't have happened because it was awesome, I'm just saying it would have been alot easier if the alliance would've straight shotted it in there.

They could've evaded the surface guns on the attack run in just as easily as they did when they were on approach to the deathstar, which you'll note netted them no casualties. It wasn't until they were flying parallel with the surface that they actually started dying from turbolaser fire.

because they were then close enough for accurate TL fire, and many crashed, however, coming in perpendicular, every TL on the hempisphere could kill them

there is a difference between the approach and actually taking a perpendicular shot. if they had tryed to hit it perpendicular, than they would have to line up the shot, so they would not be able to evade. that is why the turbolasers could not hit them, they do not turn fast enough. if the person is flying straight, you know exactly where they are gonna go, so you just wait for them to get in your crosshairs, then fire away. also, if the torpedo was fired above the surface, it could have been easily intercepted.

first off, the trench actually allowed for a lot more maneuvering than would be possible in setting up a 2 meter wide target. second, the pupose of the trench (for the Alliance) is that it is below all but the gun emplacements that are in the trench, so very few would be able to shoot at them. and finally, the guns stopped shooting because the TIEs might have been hit.

what I said about the lasers having better shots, also goes for the TIEs who did get a lot of kills in the trench, but would have it even easier if the fighters had come in perpendicular

I don't believe there's any way you could possibly convince me that it's easier to dodge while in a confined trench run, as opposed to having ALL OF SPACE to dodge in. They didn't have to come in DIRECTLY at the exhaust port, just at a reasonable enough angle so they could hit it from anywhere between 0° and 45° instead of the 90° that they utilized. They could've even done loops and flips, and had other fighters covering their backs to defend against TIE's.

The logistics just don't quite work out, their strategy was obviously planned by monkeys.

I did not mean that the approach did not allow for maneuvering, I meant that you could not just pop of a shot as you are in the middle of a turn. the port is only 2 meters wide, so you would have to be pointed directly at it, so you would have to fly in a straight line. but regardeless, the proton torpedo could easily be shot at if it is not right next to the surface.

They had a hard enough time hitting X-wings, those torpedos are smaller AND faster, they'd only have to be lined up with the exhaust port for like, less than a second, and if they timed it right they could have three X-wings/Y-wings all line up and fire at the same time, increasing the odds of SOMEBODY making it

yes, but the difference between the fighters and the torpedos, is that the fighters are evading. Not only can torpedos not evade, but the fighters can not evade while they are lining up a shot that is that precise.

ET Warrior, i want you to try something, if you have a copy of XWA. Set up a large stationary Station(a GolanIII) would work nice), and pick out a turbolaser battery on it. You will have to turn your targeting computer off, and i want you to try coming in at different angles, try lining up a shot from straight above, and see how long you live. Then, imagine the experience being 10 times harder, and you will have an idea of what the fighters would have had to do against DS1

Except in YOUR example you're flying at something that is shooting back, while the exhaust port was not a turbolaser.

And if they could shoot the torpedo so easily, why didn't they shoot luke's after he shot it?

Luke's torpedo was below the guns (except for those in the trench that had stopped b/c of the TIEs. Also, he could get closer b/c he only had to pull out a little to avoid crashing, whereas from above, he would have had to make a larger turn, that takes more distance. As far as the exhaust port not shooting back, every other turbolaser on the surface would be (and thats a lot more than there is on any station you can create in XWA. And I believe a turbolaser is much larger than 2 meters anyway, not to mention that it does not require a direct hit.

I think that the pullout necessary is actually the same, since there was a wall in the trench right after the exhaust port, and you could actually fire the torpedo from further out because your firing angle is much better.


Proof for the pullout

You are overestimating the size of the wall, and the maneuverability of the fighters. A U-turn like that would take much more space, and pulling out of the trench would take less than a ninety degree turn. If you came in perpendicular, you would have to start the turn from much farther away.



Just look at Red Leader's attack run, it is far from a ninety degree pull out from the trench.

Is it just me that thinks that they made it to have an awesome space battle?
I mean, just looking at the fact the DS was made to repel attacks by big ships seems kinda stupid, since the rebels didnt have that many oversized ships.

What was the trench even used for by the way?


You can't say that civilization isn't in progress, because in every war, they kill you in a new way

acquiring that firing solution earlier would allow the TLs to intercept the torp, and the massive u-turn would let many TLs to track and destroy the fighters
