TechRepublic's best of Star Wars

On May 25, 1977, Star Wars premiered on a mere 32 movie screens and thereby changed the world. TechRepublic takes a fond look back at all the blatant Star Wars references we've ever packed into the Geekend and Geek Trivia. We open with a mashup video space battle between the USS Enterprise and the Death Star, then kick it into Jedi high gear from there, debating the purpose of X-Wing wings, the power of an Imperial planet-killer superlaser, and why Star Wars quotes always go better with extra pants.

If that isn't enough, you can check out every Star Wars-related post to the Geekend blog, and the complete Star Wars category on TechRepublic (yes, we have one), which includes all the relevant discussions, downloadable software, and oddly organized Jedi errata that have appeared on our site over the years. The best of the best stuff, however, is listed below. Enjoy, and may the Force be with you!
