Alfredo Sigala Conspiracy Theory March 29, 2013 Period 1 Death Star Attack Introduction We’ve all heard the Death Star attack. We all know about Luke Skywalker and the Rebel Alliance and how they were able to steal the plans of the Death star to find its weakness. Then mounted a foolhardy attack on the most powerful, well-defended battle station ever built. And we’ve all seen the video of the one-in-a-million shot that resulted in a massive chain reaction that not just damaged, but completely obliterated that massive technological wonder. Like many, I believed what i saw during the attack. But as I watched the video again, I began to realize that all was not as it seemed. And the more I questioned the official story, the more clear it…show more content…
The Death Star is a battle station the size of a small moon with thousands of TIE fighters abroad. Why has there not been an investigation into allegations that Darth Vader, the second-ranking member of the Imperial Government, is in fact the father of the pilot who allegedly destroyed the Death Star? But here is when it gets interesting, Why did Lord Vader decide to break all protocols and personally pilot a lightly armored TIE Fighter? Conveniently, this placed Lord Vader outside of the Death Star when it was destroyed, where he was also conveniently able to escape from a large-sized rebel fleet that had just routed the Imperial forces. Why would Lord Vader, one of the highest ranking members of the Imperial Government, suddenly decide to fly away from the Death Star in the middle of a battle? Did he know something that the rest of the Imperial Navy didn’t? In the video of the Death Star’s destruction, Lord Vader clearly exclaims “I have you now” then fires two shots. Those shots never impact anywhere. Were they merely added to the official video after the event to make it appear that Lord Vader had at least attempted to fight off his alleged…show more content…
This shot, according to one pilot, would be impossible, even for a computer. Yet, according to additional evidence, the pilot who allegedly fired the missile turned off his targeting computer when he was supposedly firing the shot that destroyed the Death Star. How did the missile make a right angle turn after entering the exhaust port? How could a missile shot in the vacuum of space–that would tend to keep going in the same direction as it was released, according to the laws of physics–be sucked into an exhaust pipe? "Exhaust" means to exhale or blow out... Wouldn’t the missiles have been blown away of their target rather than sucked in? If it had been an intake pipe, then the bending path of the missiles could be plausible. Why have these discrepancies never been investigated, let alone explained? Prior to the destruction of the Death Star a smuggler named Captain Solo was reportedly given a large amount of money. At a crucial point in the battle, Captain Solo had shot on his choice of the fighters pursuing Skywalker, yet Solo did not take advantage of this opportunity to kill Darth Vader. Although Vader was in the process of firing upon Skywalker’s X-wing, Solo attacked the defensive fighter instead. In the aftermath, Vader escaped, while Solo still had crates of money in his cargo
