It's all ridiculously simple. Anakin used the force to destroy the Trade Federation control ship, the exact same way as he did to drive/pilot the podracer he built to win at Boonta Eve. Why is this so hard to accept? We see it established in plain black and white that he is the only human who can race a pod and that he obviously has a knack for all things mechanical in creation, repair, and use, yet it is so far-fetched that he can fly a Naboo fighter with no experience? He is obviously establised as a boy who is almost totally as one with machines, yet it is so far out of line that he knows how to destroy the control vessel without trying to? Even in AOTC we see him tell the clones where to shoot to disable other ships I'm sure he's not familiar with and it's because he is so in tune with them. Why does there not have to be an explanation or massive exposition for that scene yet there must be for the control ship scene? To me that's just silly. 800 pound cow? More like 1/2 pound squirrel! Big, but not far-fetched. Don't make more out something than it is. Oh, and sorry I wrecked your day revolution and sidetracked you, but you didn't have to bother to reply if my claims were so wild and out there. "I must have hit pretty close to the mark to her all riled up that huh kid?"
