Porkins met his death due to the fact that he was flying lower then he thought he was. He routinely kept his gravity compensation up a little higher then most pilots regularly did (perhaps as a side effect of being a fatass). As a result, he was unaware of the Necessity to pull up, since he could not feel his X-wing drifting downward, thus flying through the debris of the exploding turbolaser tower. This is according to Wedge Antilis's analysis long after the battle of Yavin in "X-Wing Rouge Squadron".

5 stars for letting me know I am not the only complete geek to have this knowledge.

"Rouge Squadron?" Wasn't that the game about the first all-gay division of rebel fighters?

How can you feel a spacecraft drifting downwards in a vacuum? Did the Deathstar have an atmosphere? A better analysis would have to be: The generous folds of his cheery cheeks obscured the giant metal ball approaching rapidly from beneath.

I think most Star Wars fans learn to check "Physics" at the door.

So it didn't have an atmosphere? Because you could hear the lasers and everything.

It was a series of novels too.

I can't imagine an object of that size not having a gravitational pull. The Death Star probably had one too.

I've always wondered if the actor knew his character's name was going to be 'Porkins' or if George Lucas was just being a dick.

Probably the latter.

What better person to play a character called Porkins then a bearded fat-ass? Only a talking pig could top that.

Lucas just didn't have the CGI technology at the time to pull it off. Look for it in the upcoming 35th Anniversary Special Edition! Porkins even has a musical number after his death.

A well choreographed musical number with CGI Jets fight dancing CGI Sharks.

Oh I wish you weren't just being a dick and joking about that. It'd be awesome.

Also, they should digitally replace Alec Guiness's Obi Wan's ghost with Ewan McGregor's. That'd be awesome. I'm not being sarcastic, either.
