The Rantcor Pit #29 - Ships of the Line

From the earliest Flash Gordon serials to the biggest science fiction blockbusters of today, if you want to tell a story set in or involving outer space then you had better have some memorable space-faring craft!

Among the many strengths of the Star Wars saga is how it delivers on that very necessity with near perfection.  Eschewing the rocket ships and streamlined spacecraft of traditional cinematic space adventures, from the outset Star Wars had brought some of the most unique and memorable intergalactic vessels in film history to bear.  

Minutes into A New Hope audiences were introduced to that galaxy far, far away in the most dynamic way possible.  And from that moment on, everything we knew about getting from Point A to Point B in space changed forever!  

This is certainly a facet of  Star Wars that your hosts Cole "JediCole" Houston and Eddie Medina are silly for in so many ways.  Seeking a topic for this weeks show it seemed only natural to talk up the variety and necessity of the various spacecraft of Star Wars as well as their portrayal on screen.  So strap yourselves in and get ready for the jump not into hyperspace so much as into every aspect of interstellar conveyance that "the Star Wars" has to offer!
