** [[invoked]] Done again during his look at the The Phantom Menace, Wong argues the Trade Federation isn't as evil they may have been intended come across as given a lack of on-screen villain, and that during the battle with the Gungans he notes the droid army was taking prisoners despite Palpatine ordering the Vice Roy to wipe them out.


Added DiffLines:

* FridgeBrilliance[[invoked]]: Wong argues this when noting holes in the Trade Federation's droid army, as a shipping company, he argues their enemies wouldn't be a fully fledged army.

** [[invoked]] The main site is centered around the question of who would win if the [[Franchise/StarTrek United Federation of Planets]] and the [[Franchise/StarWars Galactic Empire]] went to war. TheEmpire comes out on top due to drastic advantages in canonical firepower, numbers, and industrial capacity, as well as a distinct lack of morals and a better selection of ground weapons[[note]]{{the Federation}} has been seen using exactly ''one'' armed ground vehicle, whereas the Empire has a full-on StandardSciFiArmy[[/note]].

* CloudCuckooLander: Shroom Man777, label: FUCKIN' DICK STABBER. Location: Bleeding breasts and stabbing dicks since 2003. Alternates between making perfect (if frenzied) sense and utter lunacy with little to no middle ground.
* ClusterFBomb: Site rules allow profanity, and many forumgoers are all too happy to take full advantage.
* CoughSnarkCough: In an [[http://bbs.stardestroyer.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=160398 analysis thread]] of the ''Literature/StarCarrier'' series:
--> '''Tropers/StarSword:''' Also, [[Creator/WilliamHKeithJr William Keith]] apparently groks the concept that space is fucking HUGE, unlike certain other recent writers I could mention. *hacking cough that sounds suspiciously like "Creator/JJAbrams"*
* DeadpanSnarker: Half the site's population, seriously. They never miss a chance to poke fun at each other.

* HateFic: Michael Wong claims to love ''Star Trek'', but seems to find a lot of pleasure in pointing out the flaws and problems of the supposedly perfect TNG era Federation.



* LamePunReaction: In a topic titled "Two words: Dancing tanks."
--> '''Borgholio:''' Tanks for showing us this.\\
'''Flagg:''' You're a dead man.
** Then the thread turned into a HurricaneOfPuns on the word "tank" with Flagg continuing to threaten bodily harm against all involved.



* ParentalMarriageVeto: Happened to the Site Owner. Part of the reason he dislikes religion.



* UnacceptableTargets: [[invoked]] Board rules draw a distinction between insulting a moderator in a debate as part of an argument and insulting a moderator for acting as a moderator. The one is permissible (the moderators are just as willing to cuss at you as anyone else, and board culture and rules favor substance over style, or as they put it "an insulting argument is still an argument"). The other is potentially a bannable offense.
** While insults on the boards are mostly accepted, Mike Wong feels part of the fun is breaking from acting mature, the usage of homophobic and racial slurs is considered to cross the line and can get someone banned.

Stardestroyer.net is a ''Franchise/StarWars'' vs ''Franchise/StarTrek'' website started in 1998 by a Canadian engineer named Mike Wong (forum handle "Darth Wong"). Compares the strengths and weaknesses of both franchises, examining them with real science. The site has been inactive for some time, but the forum is still active. Also the source of the Trek/Wars fic ''Fanfic/{{Conquest}}''.
