Sloppily defended for sure. But Char, Doren and Wakkein were all
chattering how crazy it would be to attack Luna 2 with a single warship.
So Char infiltrated it with just a few brave men against which Luna 2
wasn't design to defend. A little like Deathstar, no? :)

They wouldn't put a "big ship big gun" guy in charge of a MS development
base right?

Captain of a big ship should be able to pull rank on a lot of base
commanders right? Can the captain of USS Iowa order, let's say, the base
commander at San Francisco to fetch coffee?

Yeah. Space Balls, for sure.

In the TV, there was a brief intro segment that described the trajectory
of the main force from Jaburo to Solomon. Was there any indication of a
refueling stop or a Balls pickup at Luna 2?
