comment What's the correct plural of Jedi and Sith?
@Null: I'm merely pointing out that you're correct to say it's difficult to find conclusive proof. But I think you're missing my point. Even if he's referring to the Sith (plural) this quote doesn't show the plural is "Sith" because that construction takes the adjective, which looks like the grammatically singular noun.

comment What's the correct plural of Jedi and Sith?
... the point being, "Destroy the Sith, we must" doesn't tell us anything about what the plural of Sith is. (It's "Sith" -- this quote just doesn't show it.) It could have been "Destroy the villainous, we must." and it doesn't tell us what the plural of "villain" is.

comment What's the correct plural of Jedi and Sith?
@Null: I don't think there's enough focus on the quasi-adjective point. It is entirely idiomatic and grammatical to use the+adjective in the singular to refer to an entire group ("The meek shall inherit..."). Can't find a good link (here's one englishforums.com/English/…), but if you think about it, you will realize this construction is common. The quote from Yoda can be exactly that.

comment What is the best word for "kitchen products" on an e-commerce website?
@Oldbag: As talrnu points out, the question is about using a term on an e-commerce website, and when I googled it, this was the largest most successful e-commerce website that showed up. It doesn't matter what a dictionary or your real-world experience says if this is real onsite usage. It should also be pointed out: you yourself said "although it sounds broader" -- well, if your customers are not going to expect it to means what it does mean, then it's not a good term to use when you are trying to sell stuff. It doesn't matter what your dictionary says.

comment Would a Jedi (Sith) clone be force-full or force-less
I know next to nothing about EU/Legends, but I'm pretty sure I've read before on this site about some pretty important story lines involving a clone of Luke Skywalker?

comment What was Asimov's contribution to real-world robotics?
I don't see why this answer is accepted. It has a lot of votes, but it certainly isn't a very useful of complete answer. It should be part of larger answer.

comment Why does Spock come across as so vague and submissive throughout Star Trek V: The Final Frontier?
@TenthDoctor: I think the premise needs more proving. Can you cite more examples that Spock is "vague and submissive" besides the excerpt below which shows Spock couldn't shoot his brother? (Can you?)

comment Why So Many Extra People on the Bridge in ST?
@luc: Even though this was split out from the original question, I'm voting down because the question is its own answer. Handy ensign is handy in case someone has to leave their post.

comment Why do we see the stairs in the cloaked ship in Star Trek 4?
OK, cool. But I might add keeping that quantity of six-inch plexiglass in stock isn't believable either. I would have preferred if they made the aluminum.

I'm not doubting you're right, but I don't think those excerpts show it.

Hmmm, Really? That's not how I remember it at all. This seems like some kind of script change because someone felt them gearing up and producing the transparent aluminum would be too unbelievable.

comment In the Star Trek Universe, can a non-cloak capable ship hide within another ship's cloak?
@Richard: It seems pretty obvious that the planetary cloak would hide a ship parked on the surface as well. This doesn't really need speculation.
