Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope - Now Where Is the Dimple in the Death Star Again?
During the briefing to the Rebels prior to launching the Rebel attack fleet, and in other scenes, the Death Star is computer-projected in wireframe. In every projection the main weapon Dimple is located on the Equator of the Death Star. However, the actual Death Star has it's main weapon Dimple to the North of the Equator.
This means that R2-D2's great and important 'plans' which were analyzed to reveal the design flaw of the Death Star are pretty tragic.
Special Requirements:
It is in all versions that I know of.

When they made the movie, the original plans for the death star had the lazer on the equator but they changed it and didn't change the computer model.

What it actually is, is that dimple was shown at the center of the death star. It is the Death Star at a different angle.

Mattman, the tekst is Dutch. Translation: "The Spacefortress, a gigantic, mighty satellite, built by Grandmoff Tarkin to surpress the Rebellion."

Jeff, if it was just shown at a different angle, how do you explain the big thick line going through it that's obviously the Death Star's equator? And why would they show it at that angle if the whole point is to show the trench in the equator that they're going to fly in?

I agree with Jeff. With the wire frame, who knows where the equator would be?!

Did You Know the death star is an exact copy of Saturn's Moon Mimas, which was discovered just a few years after star wars was made

Heheh, I've seen star wars compared to stranger stuff... tell me, do YOU see any family resemblance between Grand Moff Tarkin and Weird Al Yankovich? No? Then a friend of mine owes me a coke. -_-
