Here's a list of our hottest stories and best comments this week (Star Wars double entendre; need we say more?) in case you missed anything. Think of this week-ending roundup as a DVR for SCI FI Wire.

Enjoy!


Our story: Image of the Day: Cartographer creates actual map of LOST island

Your best comment: I found the web page where these maps are and apparently it was originally done four years ago. The only thing that really bugs me about it is the location of the Black Rock. It is more than halfway across the island from the statue which we now know it crashed into. The wave would have had to have been huge to carry it that far inland. I can't imagine the ship, let alone any crew surviving such a toss!!!— Joe B.


Our story: Image of the Day: Futurama characters turned into The X-Men

Your best comment: Mom as Emma Frost? LOL - and ewwwwww.— dakalmog

Our story: Sam Raimi will reboot the Wizard of Oz for Disney. Really.

Your best comment: Wait! I was so horror-stricken by the headline of this item, that I only skimmed the actual article and didn't realize they were talking about doing a prequel, and not actually redoing Oz itself. So on second thought...

Nope . . . still sucks.— rkf


Our story: Image of the Day: 7 Hayden Panettiere clones in bikinis

Our story: 22 ordinary things that look like the Starship Enterprise (PICS)

Your best comment: The golf putter is actually supposed to look like the Enterprise. The putter grip actually says 'NCC-1701'. It's a limited edition putter from Odyssey.— codemonkey
