How did the Death Star go to light speed?

One thing we didn't get to see in the OT.

It would have to, going from one system to the next on patrol.

Was there ten thousand little thrusters than shot it in one direction?
It would need them to rotate, of course.

It would have too. At regular orbiting speed it took several minutes to get around the moon of Yavin.

If it wasn't capable of light speed travel, imagine how long it would take to reach the rebel base.

Leia: "We've got to download the data from this R2 unit; it's our only hope."

General: "How long before the Death Star arrives here, Princess?"

Leia: (pause)..."Roughly a hundred years, General."

General: "Then we've got time. Let's relax and have some jawa juice." stick out tongue

hm. on the subject of worm/black holes, think anyone would make something like the new STrek movie (you know, black hole, someone traveling back in time etc.) Star Wars style after 20 years when Lucas is dead?

Well, Lucas isn't going to do any more regarding the six films. Would he allow someone at his company to do any reboot while he's around?

Yeah. The Essential Technology Guide does not mention lightspeed capability or anything of the sort.

I don't know. On his deathbed in the 1980's, Orson Welles made sure to put in writing that CITIZEN KANE would never get colourized - Ted Turner was big into colourizing old B&W films then. And it's stuck to this day.
What could Lucas do to prevent anything he doesn't want? I think it could only apply to the six films he's made - no alterations. But someone - in the name of making LOTS OF MONEY for Lucasfilm -would think it's a good idea to do something new.
Believe me - there are (younger)people out there who do think the OT is old looking, even with the enhancements. I know of one who told me he'd like to see them remade.
