A rant I've been holding in for a long while. Starkiller Base is the worst idea that has ever been conceived in the Star Wars universe, and the more I think about it the more I understand that Starkiller Base is a fundamental foundation for the entire story of the sequel trilogy.
Nothing about Starkiller base makes sense, from its construction to its power, to the story that is told around it. Nothing about Starkiller Base makes sense, and yet it serves the purpose of wiping the slate of the original trilogy's war clean so that the First Order is now the main military power in the galaxy.
It's dumb, it's lazy and it makes me sad to think about.
