Death Star conspiracy theory

Incredible luck, a sequence of blunders, or something far more sinister?

We all know by now of the destruction of the Death Star.

According to the "official story," Luke Skywalker and a group of rebels carried out a crazy-spirited attack against the most effective and best-equipped battle station the Death Star. According to the official explanation, one-of-a-million shots caused a massive chain reaction that not only damaged but also completely destroyed this massive technological miracle, killing around 1.5 million people in the process.

However, this official explanation leaves a multitude of holes in the story, which are much more than just "suspicious."

Questions to which the "official story" does not answer[edit | edit source]

  1. Why were a handful of rebel fighters able to penetrate the defenses of a battle station that had the capability of destroying an entire planet and the defenses to ward off several fleets of battle ships?
  2. Why did Grand Moff Tarkin refuse to deploy the station’s large fleet of TIE Fighters until it was too late? Was he acting on orders from somebody to not shoot down the rebel attack force? If so, who, and why?
  3. How is it that Grand Moff Tarkin, one of the highest ranking officials in the Imperial Army, would have perished in the assault? Surely, he would've been among the survivors, as Tarkin has multiple ships designated for his personal transportation. Could Tarkin have been done away with before the initial assault, from the inside?
  4. Why was the rebel pilot who supposedly destroyed the Death Star reported to be on the Death Star days, maybe hours, prior to its destruction? Why was he allowed to escape, and why were several individuals dressed in Stormtrooper uniforms seen helping him?
  5. 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?
  6. 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?
  7. In the official 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 son?
  8. Nerf-Herders defy the laws of physics? How could any pilot shoot a missile into a 2 meter-wide exhaust port, let alone a pilot with no formal training, whose only claim to fame was his ability to “bullseye Womprats” on Tatooine? 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 awry 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?
  9. Why has their been no investigation into evidence that the droids who provided the rebels with the Death Star plans were once owned by none other than Lord Vader himself, and were found, conveniently, by the pilot who destroyed the Death Star, and who is also believed to be Lord Vader’s son? Evidence also shows that the droids were brought to one Ben Kenobi, who, records indicate, was Darth Vader’s teacher many years earlier! Are all these personal connections between the conspirators and a key figure in the Imperial government supposed to be coincidences?
  10. How could a single proton torpedo destroy a battle station the size of a moon? No records, anywhere, show that any battle station or even a capital ship has ever been destroyed by a proton torpedo Furthermore, analysis of the tape of the last moments of the Death Star show numerous small explosions along its surface, prior to it exploding completely! Why does all evidence indicate that strategically placed explosives, not a single missile, is what destroyed the Death Star?
  11. Prior to the destruction of the Death Star, a smuggler named Captain Solo was reportedly given a large sum of money. At a crucial point in the battle, Captain Solo had an unobstructed 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 hold.
  12. During pilot debriefing, we leaned that Obi Wan was the one who told Luke to turn off his targeting computer. He claims that he was told by Obi-Wan to "Let go" and "Trust me". This is the same Obi Wan who was, according to the official story, killed after sabotaging the Death Star by none other than Darth Vader BEFORE speaking to Luke. His convenient death places him inside the Death Star just before the explosions on the surface occur. By faking his death, Vader would have given Obi Wan time to plant explosives. The only evidence of his death is his Jedi robe on surveillance cameras. And even that can't be found because they decided to conveniently let the evidence burn in the planet atmosphere.
  13. Lord Vader executed an officer for incompetence by allowing the rebels to escape. He then orders another officer to disable the Millennium Falcon's hyper drive. The rebels once again escape using the disabled hyper drive. Why was the officer responsible for carrying out Lord Vader's order to disable the hyper drive not executed? Why was he, in fact, given NO disciplinary action what so ever? Why did Lord Vader only disable the hyper drive? If Lord Vader didn't want the rebels to escape, why didn't he disable the ship entirely?
  14. Why did Shaef Corssin, the captain of the Imperial Star Destroyer Devastator, which captured the Tantive IV, not fire upon one of Tantive's lifepod with the droids carrying Death Star plans? The "official story" claims he didn't find the any signs of life. The record shows Corssin stating: "Hold your fire. There are no life forms. It must have been short-circuited." Why would Corssin be looking for life signs, when it was electronic plans he should have been looking for. Why did he jump to the conclusion it was "short-circuited". Is he a lifepod engineer?

Are these all just coincidences? Or part of a massive conspiracy being led from the imperial leadership?
