Anyone who suggests using CGI to accomplish the space scenes in this film should be kicked in the balls until they have three adams apples. One of the many, many, many things wrong with the pre-quals was the fact that they just looked absolute rubbish due to the CGI. One of the few good things about the originial films was that the CGI technology didn't exist at the time so it was down to outstanding model work and the creation of full size replica's which actually look realistic. Two quick questions though. 1) How do X-wings fly in space given that their wings would be as much use as tits on a fish due to the lack of air? 2) How do they manage to get the laser beams to actually slow down so that you can see them? They are going at the speed of light you'd be hit before you even knew the other guy had fired and yet here you can see the beam and if you're really quick, dodge it.
