As a Vorta, this is a petition I can get behind, even if it involves the Sith and their silly superstitions.

We currently can't even manage low earth orbit without hitching a ride. Better start small with a Star Destroyer or something.
Remember, everything has to fit through the hatch of a Soyuz.

The sooner the petition gets nearly a million signatures,
the sooner President Obama can completely ignore it.

Guys. Guys. Did you ever see Star Wars? You just send a torpedo through the design-flaw hatch and the whole thing's destroyed. Not an efficient use of resources or time.

In MY Death Star there will be a screen door over that open hatch.

Well, seeing as how whitehouse.gov petitions are legally binding an all, why settle for a Death Star? Lets build a fucking Dyson Sphere! Why fuck around with little shit when we don't have to?

This whole thing is silly. Besides the cost of it. Why build something when we are yet to get out of our solar system. Building and researching the spaceships and fuel sources are more important.

I say we petition President Obama to disregard all petitions.

Just to see what would happen.

But it's an environmental disaster... just think of all the wilderness that has to be destroyed to get material enough to build such a monstrous thing.

True we don't use it to suck up stray asteroids as much as they used to in the olden days, but it's still very pretty and a nice thing to be able to catch a glimpse of in the night sky.
