Death Star Trutherism

This is a great Star Wars parody of 9/11 trutherism – and all other conspiracy theories!

As with other conspiracy theorists, there is usually some glaring error that makes it hard to take what they say seriously. In this case, it is calling the planet “Aldebraan.”

    calling the planet “Aldebraan.”

    It also names Wedge Antilles as the pilot whose photon torpedoes missed the exhaust vent. Everyone knows that the pilot was actually Garven Dreis, right?

    But otherwise, it’s an awesome video!

    The one GLARING error that stuck out to me here was that in “Revenge of the Sith”, we find out that Darth Sidious never tells Darth Vader that she was able to give birth. So Darth Vader is completely unaware that he has children at this point. In addition to this, Darth Vader is never even told that Luke was his child who was given to the Lars (the Lars were killed because of the droids, and had no relation to them being Luke’s adopted parents whatsoever). This is all though because the Jedi initially lied to the Sith as well by keeping Luke and Leia’s identities secret (and faking that Padme died pregnant). Thus, it is not until “The Empire Strikes Back” that Palpatine informs Vader that Luke is the child of Anakin Skywalker.

    Thus, the whole “family conspiracy” Death Star theory could simply never work because Vader is unaware that he is a father. When he does become aware that he is a father, both Sidious and Vader are put into a tough position where they have to seek to destroy the Skywalker child (Luke). Leia and Luke are unaware that they are brother and sister until midway through “Return of the Jedi”. That’s when they decide to stop kissing each other because now they know that it’s gross and instead start treating each other as brother and sister.
