Over at Websurdity, we have a hilarious take on those wacky conspiracy theorists. Check out the summary of the new book Uncomfortable Questions: An Analysis of the Death Star Attack.
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?
And so on. The commenters have added many theories in a similar vein.
