Q: Why weren't the Death Star plans transmitted electronically?

Scott MitchellSo in the opening scene of Star War Episode IV, Darth Vader and crew are closing in on Princess Leia's ship and she puts the Death Star plans on R2-D2 and jettisons him down to Tatooine. This seems really risky because if anything happens to the escape pod or those droids, poof, the plans are go...

Q: Is the Heretical Status of "In Defence of the Future: A Logical Discourse" based on the preservation of the Emperor?

BenIn the 40k Universe, the foundation of humanity is based on faith in a fair few things, much like a fairly unstable stack of pebbles - each piled up into a tower. Move one, and the whole thing comes tumbling down. At the core of it, The Emperor, and the Adeptus Mechanicus. These determine what i...

Q: 2000s Animated TV show where teenagers could physically go into a virtual world

Thomas KingThis was an animated TV show that was broadcast in Canada in the 2000s.

There was a central area where all the players met in the vir...

Q: Did the Emperor always have the correct legion in system when meeting a new Primarch?

Richard CWhen reading of the reuniting of the Emperor with each of his Primarch sons it always seems that the Primarch linked up with his legion in a very short space of time. For instance Angron seems to have joined the World Eaters very soon after being teleported away from death, Magnus instantly got...

Wrong answers on story IDs are considered useful, aren't they?

Q: Trying to find: Short story: Boy meets a man who is about to hang himself

polynomial_donutFor decades this short story has been stuck in my head. We read it in highschool English class once. As I remember it, it was about a boy leaving his home to encounter a man who was about to hang himself. I think the man is standing on a chair and preparing the ordeal, when the boy meets him. Th...

Q: Movie Identification: Police chase in a SF movie

Metin ÖrselBased in the future. The only scene I remember is that the guy is running away from the police. As the police are chasing him (in a tunnel-like environment), the cost of the chase (i.e. the fuel cost of the police vehicle) is being discounted from the guy's bank account online realtime. He's awar...

Q: Does C-3PO have color vision?

gormadocA quote from (though almost certainly not Legends-canon) Star Wars Adventures in Colors and Shapes suggests that he cannot: C-3PO: "Excuse me, Central Computer, but could you tell me if this plate is red?" Central Computer: "No, that plate is green. Green is the color of grass, and ...

Q: Regarding The Last Jedi, why was hyperspace collision not being weaponized before the rebel star cruiser's impact with the Supremacy?

user121678Considering the damage that the rebel Star Cruiser dealt to Snoke's ship when jumping to hyperspace, why is this seemingly the first and only time we've seen this? Why are there not say missiles with the means to jump to hyperspace? I really hope there's a canonical answer for this, as it makes ...

Q: Do the SilverHawks breath?

Russ Rainfordin the 1980s Rankin-Bass cartoon Silverhawks, the titular team is a unit of cyborg space cops who have been modified ["partly metal, partly real"] to live in deepest space.

Q: Is the 1990 Australian produced show **Ultraman: Towards the Future** in continuity with the other Ultra series?

Russ RainfordJust managed to find this show, and I remember it [vaguely] as my third or so introduction into the Ultra-verse [saw clips of the original 1960s show as a kid, a version that happened later in the series in the 70s, and an anime in the 80s]. I only remembered it because in 1991, there were a few ...
