I agree with you for the most part III_Vir_RPC, but as I've said before, I have nothing against the use of superweapons. I still don't like the idea of jedi using them. Jedi are defenders of life, and if they have to take out massive amounts of life instantly to do it, there is no guarantee that a jedi will remain with the "light" (oh, and please don't tell me a lightsaber is no different from a superweapon :0 ) Still, the scales of massive life destruction potential are so heavy on the side of superweapons, I cannot see a superweapon other than for what it really is: to destroy massive amounts of life instantly. With superweapons, there is ALWAYS a certain amount of indiscrimination no matter how much Anakin believed everything would be hunky-doary had HE had fired Centerpoint. Also, I agree (for the most part) with your argument about how a superweapon is employed that really determines its goodness or badness. Basically, you are saying the ends never justify the means (because in and of itself, a superweapon's ends is to destroy, annihilate and otherwise obliterate everything in a certain vicinity indiscriminately and without remorse). The means a superweapon is used determines its "goodness" or evil. Thank you. I agree. As for Centerpoint, I've said this before, and I'll say it again.. jedi should not be tools of firing superweapons. It is the NR's responsibility to decide and carry out [the firing of superweapons]. The question arises whether it is a jedi's responsibility to fire and save hundreds if the NR has no one else proficient enough to operate the superweapon. That is a good question to which I am honestly stumped. If the NR is going to fire anyway, I would say yes, let a jedi instead fire it and let him do it in the right reasons: with NR approval and to spare life. But as for the situation in jedi eclipse, neither anakin nor jacen knew that Thracken was going to fire anyway. Which is why Anakin was bitter about it (I think part of Anakin actually agreed with Jacen about not firing Centerpoint... that a jedi couldn't do it... that Leia's son couldn't do that.. that Luke's nephew couldn't do it. But when it was fired anyway, Anakin's upset that HE didn't get to fire it).
