Here are a couple of quips about the recent technicality debates:
1) Endor-stationary Space Station: I think that it is possible for the
Death Star to orbit at such a low radius if it were made out of
extremely light materials, like aluminum. The Death Star could also
be orbiting at a greater speed than the moon's. Remember, film technology
is far more advanced than that of space!
2) Why did the Emperor let the rebels know the exact location of the
shield on Endor? Ego, for one. But there could be a more practical
reason. If the rebels were led by the Emperor to a location which was
way off, the rebels would be wary and think that a trap was imminent.
Since they did find the shield generator, they were not as cautious
and fell right into the trap. However, Ewok Entropy saved the day.
3) Lastly, how could Darth's and the Emperor's ship come into a bay
which held air directly from airless space? Through a semi-permeable
membrane, of course. One that would allow metallic objects (like the
ship) through, but not let air out. The meteors could be a problem,
