    I've seen it mentioned in a few threds and thought a thread for it might be good. Lock it if not [face_peace]


    anyway, what do you think will the "ultimate weapon" seen in AotC (as hologram) and at the end of ROTS be? Some say it will be a huge bomb. I don't think it's a space bomb, that would be an awful waste, considering how big it seems.


    Maybe it will be like that Simpsons episode where Mr. Burns blocked out the sun. It did look like the size of a small moon, so they could create very long sun eclipses. Any scientists here who can tell us what that would do to a planet? Make it really cold? :p


    Speculate away! :)

    It's a box-office bomb. I thought everyone knew that.

    Maybe it's a really big ship with lots of lasers and stuff.

    Dude it's probably something that creates worlds. Imagine it if you can. Palpatine will create worlds that he can make into the Utopia or Master Race worlds for him to rule over. The rest of the Galaxy will be enslaved.

    There's no way it's a big ship. It's TOO big to be a ship. :rolleyes:

    They're constructing a golf ball for Mega-Maid.

    Pieces of dialoguge that I've seen indicate that Darth Vader says the following midway through the course of the film:

    "The power to destroy a planet is insignificant to the power of the Force."


    I'd suggest that the "ultimate weapon" is, in fact, the power of the Force as weiled by Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader to achieve his ends.
    Take that as you will.

    It almost looks like a super-size version of the Trade Federation battleships....

    I think it's one of those themal detonators Leia was holding in RotJ--just a really scary and bad one. The Emperor probably has Vader throw it at people and then everybody vaporizes or something.

    It's probably just a typeo.
    I'm sure you meant that it looks like one of those hair brushes that Padme was holding in ROTS. But a REALLY round one. [face_peace]

    Maybe it's really made to block the sun. I read in abook once that then there will be another ice age or something. But I wonder how long the weapon will have to stay in orbit than, and doesn't the effect wear off, if it leaves?
    That would be not very well thought out, IMO.
    Maybe it can use some kind of microwaves and everything on the plante gets fried alive or something. Like all oceans dried out, all ground turned into glass, really bad.
    If it killed only living things, I don't think you can say it destroyed the planet.

    Yeah, maybe Palpatine kills off people and then re-colonizes the worlds with Sith Troopers. (Clones with Sith Powers)

    That cannot be Palpy. It is said that the planet is destroyed.
    You cannot recolonized it then.
    Maybr the weapon changes the structure of the plaet and turns it into a ball of lava. If they did that to Alderaan, they'd have a nice spot for the ending duel.
    Very symbolic.
