Let’s talk Star Wars, specifically Star Wars IV – A New Hope. For those of you who have seen the movies which, based on previous reactions to Star Wars-themed posts is most of you, you can probably skip this contextual part. For those of you who don’t get the metaphor, I’ll get right to the good stuff. In this film, the plot is all about ending the Death Star’s plan by identifying its most vulnerable point to destroy the Death Star. As is typical of the Star Wars films, there’s a battle and the good guys – the Rebels – suffer heavy losses, leaving Luke one of the few surviving pilots. The bad guys, led by Vader, leads a squad of fighters and prepares to attack Luke’s X-wing fighter, but Han returns and fires on the Imperials, sending Vader spiraling away. Helped by guidance from Obi-Wan’s spirit, Luke uses the Force and successfully destroys the Death Star seconds before it can fire on the Rebel base.
