I even imagined an opening, pre-opening-overture (and derivative of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, I admit) way to open a filmed version of that story: a Voyager probe floats silently through space, but then gets sucked through a space-time disturbance and comes out of it into another part of space, where now it makes sound as it goes by. The galaxy far, far away is so different from ours that there can be sound in space! It would explain so much!
I know that there was that fun video someone made of the Death Star and Imperial ships all over San Francisco (do the links on that page still work?), but c'mon: a story about all that could be a story both ridiculous and fun!
