Both sides can now just fly through them... I guess we should be grateful they didn't beam planet to planet. This is one of those magic tricks in the script that is not only hard to overlook, but tough to come back from. Waiting for... "JJ explained this in an interview" "This is discussed in the novel" "Not every question needs answered, JJ is like Nolan and Spielberg wrapped in one" "This will be covered in 8" Haha What made me think of this is I read the new trek movie is going to ignore the planet to planet beaming that occurred in Wrath of Kahn 2: the Caucasian edition" What's funny, is JJ is still a producer. A film he is currently working on has to straight up ignore a big change that occurred in the last one he worked on! It's too bad Star Wars has to deal with similar issues now.
