Oh interesting. For me, the way he was handled in TLJ made me appreciate what's going on with him even more. It retroactively made his work in TFA even better.

I agree. He is an even more interesting character now.

I don't mind Starkiller Base at all. Seems like a natural progression from the Death Star. Isn't that pretty much how all technology advances? Reiterating on the same concept, but with more power and stuff? I mean........cars, computers, phones, guns, bombs, etc.

I think the whole 'force field refresh rate' thing was stupid. Like, a force field that only stops slow space ships? So why not just fire a bunch of giant really fast rockets/warheads through it?

I dontthink it was a "slow space ship" field but rather it had more to do with the distance of the ships?

Someone much smarter than me could expand. Im probably wrong.

I forget, could the starkiller base move once it drained a star? Or was it a one time thing?

The sheer amount of power squirting out the front of that planet should have propelled it backward into the sun. That would have been a brilliant alternative ending.

Maybe that actually happened and they jumped into an alternate time line where luke is a crnaky ld fat man who drinks donkey titty juice and is a clown?!

Then come Episode 9 they pull a marty mcfly and everything is "biff scrubs the cars"?!

It is, but again, it's been reframed by The Last Jedi. That movie makes crystal clear that one of the biggest flaws in The First Order is that they believe size equals strength. They look at what the Empire built and truly believe that the only reason it didn't work is that it wasn't big and fast and powerful enough. Their entire model has been "Just like The Empire but WAY BIGGER." It's Trump-philosophy as Star Wars villain.

In the context of TLJ, Starkiller base becomes less lazy and far more logical, to me.

Then there's all the theories that Starkiller base was made out of the planet Illium. Which, if that's true, is super fucking badass.

What sun? The base eats the sun and uses that power for the weapon.
