ENTER! SF & F Avatar Contest: Stationary
 
Welcome to the new contest. After going from objects to vehicels over the past two contests, I thought I'd continue in this spirit. This time, it's immovable artificial objects, as in buildings, bases, space stations, etc.. I'd say there's a wide array of these to choose from. Usual av rules applay, as always. Have fun!

And here's my entry:

^^ You know, the fact the Stargate was found in egypt and then transported to the U.S. suggests that it is not quite immovable. That, however, is nitpicking and I won't stand for it. Your entry is allowed.

it may not be immovable, but it is typically stationary.

^ The Death Star isn't stationary. Case in point; in Star Wars it's piloted to Yavin to destroy the Rebel Base.

That was the first Death Star.

The second Death Star never went anywhere.

As I said, nitpicking. I already allowed the stargate.

Now, here's a debate. The thing is, the first Death Star showed that it was not stationary. Why it was called a space station in the movie, I don't know, but for all intents and purposes, it was an admittedly huge starship.
The second Death Star was still being build, so it was quite stationary. On the other hand, if I allow this, would it open the door to other starships being build? Quite the slippery slope. I'll take it under advisement and give my ruling tomorrow. Ancient Mariner, you may want to prepare a back-up entry.
