Excerpt from 27 Mind Blowing Statistics About Fictional Universes
Cracked.com has an interesting list of 27 Mind Blowing Statistics About Fictional Universes. I decided to share some of the Star Wars and Star Trek related info graphics from this list and provide some additional comments of my own!
Maybe physics works differently in a Galaxy Far, Far, Away and the technology replaces or compensates for these physic differences.
The quotes used in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (… “That’s no Moon! That’s a Space Station!” And “Look at the size of that thing!”) to describe the size of the Death Star, give me the impression that it was BIG! However, IMHO, anything that has a weapon that can destroy a planet is bigger, just for the scary capabilities, no matter what the actual size is!
And now we know why John Scalzi was able to write an award winning book based on this statistic !
I love to see Easter Eggs and shout outs like these and I hope the upcoming Star Wars films will include more!
