Question: Five ships survive the destruction of the Death Star: Vader in his custom TIE, Han and Chewie in the Millennium Falcon, Luke and Wedge in their X-Wings, and a Y-Wing. Who's in the Y-Wing?
Answer: The "X-Wing" computer game implies that the pilot of the surviving Y-Wing is the game's lead character, Keyan Farlander.

Trivia: Other supers from the movie that mimic comic book heroes (disregarding gender): Psycwave is Professor X, Phylange is Banshee, Blazestone is Pyro, Thunderhead is Storm, Gazerbeam is Cyclops, Apogee is Sunspot, and Gamma Jack is Ultraverse's Atom Bob. Jack-Jack also briefly manifests the powers of the Human Torch and the Incredible Hulk and the board that Frozone uses near the end is reminiscent of the Silver Surfer.

Revealing mistake: Early in the final fight, Vi makes a flying kick to knock an Ubervamp off the cliff. As she lands, she swings back and twists slightly, suspiciously like one would do if suspended on a wire. There is no way she could gain this motion by kicking straight off the vamp as shown.

Question: Obviously there's some background on the Sith Lords that isn't explained in the movie. There is the implication that they ruled before the Republic was established. Is there more to this backstory?
Answer: The best place for this is the official Star Wars Databank: http://www.starwars.com/databank/organization/thesith/index.html. There's also a lot of information in Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sith.

Continuity mistake: Lara cuts her arm at the Lunar Temple before she leaves. There is no blood whatsoever until a quick shot shows her pulling her hand away from the cut (it wasn't covering it before while she was swimming) and the cut pouring blood, which immediately disappears as the shark shows up. The blood is never seen again.

Factual error: West and Gordon are outfitted with massively powerful magnetic collars. Somehow the two collars don't interact with each other at all until they try to remove them, when they prove able to attract each other from at least 20 meters. Gordon rationalizes this by saying that they accidentally reversed one magnet's polarity, but if this were so then the magnets should have originally opposed each other with the same force, instantly throwing each other apart as soon as they were brought within meters of each other. Nonsensical.

Factual error: During the fight just before Elvis uses the alcohol, Bubba Ho-tep exclaims a series of Egyptian hieroglyphs which are translated as "By the unwinking eye of Ra." The symbol on the far right is not the Eye of Ra (which faces right) but the Eye of Thoth (an identical symbol which faces left).
