"Almost everyone has been wrong forever about the Death Star"

Did everyone else already know this? I know I didn't.


  1. I had always assumed it wasn't the main equatorial trench just because it was so much smaller than the one where the Falcon docked. But it was never clear to me just where this trench was, and I found Gen. Dodonna's presentation confusing. (Tufte would *hate* it.) It never occurred to me it was a north/south trench.

  2. Why are they called trenches? It's not like they're dug into earth. Aren't they more like ducts? Possibly alleys?
