You know how they say that all geeks really think about is sex? That’s partially true. But the way we think about sex is often decidedly non-standard. We even have our thoughts drift to the theoretical nature of it all; sex, life, the universe itself, and, well…Star Wars. It’s just what we do. I’m not sure where this particular thought came from or why, and I’m surely not the ONLY person who’s ever noticed this, but what follows is my attempt to collect some evidence to support the finer points of this particular theory in greater detail. Okay. Deep breath. Ready?
The Death Star destruction scene in the original Star Wars: A New Hope is really a depiction of baby-makin’. Fertilization. Yep.
Let’s begin with the “briefing” scene. A bunch of dudes sitting and getting a lecture about the exhaust port, which leads to the belly of the beast. You hit this thing right and she’ll LITERALLY explode. Uh-huh. Tell me this isn’t similar to every sex-ed class you ever had, amirite, bros?
And let’s talk about those “penetrating” snub fighters. I mean, there’s the obvious chromosomal suggestion: Seriously, it ain’t even subtle. A swarm of tiny fighters are attacking this big orb, trying desperately to penetrate its defenses. Oh, and those tiny fighters (many of whom will dash themselves against the impenetrable shell) are X-wing and Y-wing fighters. Yeah. Like this…
And also this…
And then there are the other rather obvious references, such as…ahem…
Or the plight of poor Porkins. See, he couldn’t pull out (up) in time, and…yeah.
And then, when Luke finally delivers his explosive payload down the chute (I feel so terribly filthy writing this) this is the result…
Fireworks. That’s what they used to use as a metaphor in old movies and television. Fireworks! Also? You could say that there’s a “Big O” in the sky there. Whew! An exciting CLIMAX to this movie, yes? All those little guys swarming in a long trench and OH MY GOD WHY DID I START WRITING THIS?!?! Also? Darth Vader’s helmet. STOP ME, SOMEONE!! And the lightsabers. Ever seen a male dog get frisky? See, it’s like this little lipstick, and what happens is…NO!! I REFUSE!! Princess LAY-ya. And on and on.
Actually, now that I think about it, I’m not the pervert here. Lucas George M. F. Lucas. He’s the motherfucker. And think how dirty this movie would’ve been if he’d had access to the CGI. Thank the maker!
