yeah but Anakin killed younglings! YOUNGLINGS!
I think I should have been more forthcoming by stating that I don't consider the prequels and especially "Revenge of the Shit" as canon. Anakin Childkiller was really the most idiotic thing George Lucas ever came up with!
Totally destroyed any credibility of the redemption scene in JEDI.
I assume it´s considered worse killing younglings than not preventing an entire planet being blown to bits - guess there were no children on Alderaan
Just a little reminder (I really don't want this beautiful thread to go off-topic): It was Governor Tarkin who suggested to destroy Alderaan as a test. Look at Vader how his head jerked when he sensed what Governor Tarkin was about to propose - looked to me as if even him hadn't considered such cruelty as imaginable. And for whatever reasons, Tarkin had been holding "Vader's leash", so there was little Vader could do preventing it.
I was expecting this point to be made ... and I got an answer to it.
But as you said, let´s not derail this thread. There´s always the general SciFi section here at the TrekBBS.
So to put the thread back on track:
"Captain's Log, Stardate - wait, I have to count the rings first"
Reminded me immediately of "Twin Peaks" (Log Lady), I'd love to see some TNG-TP crossovers if any do exist.
You mean like this?

Ok, Ren and Stimpy's log song popped in my head with this one! Brilliant!

Many thanks for the TNG-TP crossover picture, it's hilarious.
That's SO them it hurts!
I can't post this in VOY because I like people too much
