Live Poll: Impressive 'Star Wars' Engineering Feats

Engineering marvels come in all shapes and sizes. Some are big and complex, like Egypt's Giza Pyramid or China's Great Wall. Others are small and simple, like the wheel or man-made fire. While, others dramatically change society, like the Model-T automobile assembly line or the Gutenberg printing press. Which seemingly impossible engineering feat accomplished a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away do you think is the most amazing?

Which 'Star Wars' engineering marvel* do you find the most impressive? *live-action 'Star Wars' movie franchise engineering marvels only

By the way u misspelled "CORUSCANT" and did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.

This is really a good poll. 'Such a tough choice of options, too!

May I suggest just one small edit to the (very good) intro? ('below in bold)

Great engineering marvels come in all shapes and sizes: some are big and complex, like Egypt's Giza Pyramid or China's Great Wall, others are small and simple, like the wheel or man-made fire, while others just dramatically change society, like the Model-T automobile, the assembly line or the Gutenberg printing press. (colon or semi-colon instead of a comma)

Oh, and I love this: Which seemingly impossible engineering feat accomplished a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away do you think is the most amazing?

Thanks, I made correction. Yes, I agree it would make for interesting discussion.  More than a couple are seem to have found a work around to the laws of physics as we know them on this world making them even more amazing.

Oh, it's very cool that you mentioned real-world feats in the intro, especially the printing press.
