Q: In "The Last Jedi" was it actually Poe's fault that so much of the resistence died?

Joe CIn The Last Jedi would Holdo's plan have worked if not for Poe's folly? If, so, really? You could disobey orders, mutiny, fail, get more than half your comrades killed and that's OK because you meant well.

Q: Does oo-mox have a similar affect on Female ferengi?

Ben WatersIn a lot of episodes of star trek involving the Ferengi, we see male Ferengi reacting to oo-mox (having their ear lobes rubbed). It occurs to me that as far as I can remember it is only ever shown happening to a male. Ferengi females have smaller lobes, but I can't remember anything ever saying ...

Q: Story whose main character is an anti entropy focus

SystemCallsI read half of a novel once whose main character was a sort of anti entropy focus. He was immortal and remembered being a roman soldier. He didn't seem to have any direct control over the power. Things around him began to have less entropy. There was one scene where he sat in a junk car long eno...

Q: What title does a queen's husband get while she's sitting on the Iron Throne?

InvokerCersei is the queen and she sits on the Iron Throne, as ruler. If she tries to marry a man, let's take Euron as an example, will Euron get the title of "King" or will he just be treated as "husband to the queen"? If yes, what is the extent of his powers? Is it just the same level as to what Cers...

Q: Paperback series about teenagers in a slightly dystopic USA - Plot of main book involved sodium cooled motorbikes

FuzzyBootsI think I read this around 2000. It was a paperback book, which I'm pretty certain was labeled with "Book 1" of a series, although I only read part of this first one. It was set in a somewhat dystopic United States where the government exerted an oppressive control over the lives of citizens, in ...

Q: Looking for a sci fi short story about space mutiny and a polite captain

Neith LittleWould you help me find the title of a sci fi short story that I read once and would like to find again? It was about a space-ship where the captain is unusually polite in his verbal commands to the ship's AI, always saying "please" and "thank you." The crew records the captains voice saying the ...

Rebecca DonaldsonIt is common knowledge that Death Eaters and Voldemort alike hate Muggles, Muggle-borns and Squibs... so is there a canon reason Filch is still employed during Deathly Hallows?

Q: What genre do turn based rpg games fall under? (example: FF tactics and divinity original sin)

user102825I'm curious what genre these games fall under? I see them labeled as RPG but they're way different than regular RPGs. This is how I would label some of these RPGs. Regular RPGs: Elder scrolls, dark souls, the witcher, etc. Turn Based RPGs: Final Fantasy VII, South Park stick of truth, Darkest D...

Q: What do the acromantulas eat in the Forbidden Forest?

AerovistaeAs described in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, there are a lot of really big spiders in the forest, and they are all carnivorous. I know "what does X eat" is a kind of obnoxious form of poking holes in fantasy universes, but I can't help wondering if this was considered. Imagine a "den...

Q: Would the events of a parody comic like X-Men #245 be considered canon?

SDHAs the question states, at what point would a parody comic (for instance Uncanny X-Men # 245) go outside of the realm of mainstream canon? This great comic has a host of ridiculous occurrences (near use of a 'Jean Bomb') and cameos (Boba Fett and ET). It seems like a tongue-in-cheek one-off com...

But he already had the Foreshadow and the Megashadow, both more than capable of destroying planets (even th...
