‘Ship approaching, X-Wing class …’

Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Technology

xobject1The Hubble Space Telescope last month photographed an X-shaped object traveling at 11,000 mph, reports Gizmodo.

NASA, helpfully trying to allay any fears the defenseless populace of Earth might have, describes it as the remnants of two asteroids that collided at high velocity.

Gizmodo likens the shape to that of a Klingon Bird-of-Prey. But I think it more closely resembles a Rebel Alliance T-65 X-Wing Starfighter like that flown by Luke Skywalker in Star Wars.

I don’t know about you, but I’d rather welcome a friendly Jedi Knight than a dozen or so bloodthirsty Klingon warriors.
