Check Out This Cool Star Wars / OS X Lion Mash-Up Wallpaper [Geek Humor]

A long time ago, in an operating system not too far away...

Reader Adam Moffat sent us this awesome mash-up of Lion’s cool new galaxy wallpaper and the famous opening shot of Darth Vader’s Star Destroyer chasing Princess Leia in the first few minutes of Star Wars.

We love it. Here’s the inspiration. If you think it’d make a fine desktop for your geeky Mac, you can download a high resolution copy from us here. Thanks for sharing your work with us, Adam!

    Do a Star Trek version!

    Does anyone know which galaxy this actually is? It looks cool. Or is it just CGI? 

  • brownlee

    Which image? High-res download, or the inspiration one?

  • Chris Cooper

    It’s the Andromeda Galaxy :)
    At least it’s named as such in the desktop image preference pane.
    It’s probably been enhanced a bit, but not too much I imagine. 
    It is very cool though :)

    Looks good… except for the fact that the moon/planet is lit from one side and the ship is lit from the other, and the moon/planet has more definition than the ship.  So not good.

    Yeah, jeez, who did this crap? That doesn’t look like a real star destroyer at all!

    Actually the Inspiration picture posted is not from capture of Princess Leia in Star Wars: A New Beginning, but from the third film, “Return of the Jedi”
