Sci-Fi weapons with BAD design flaws

Death not THAT flaw...can only fire its mega weapon at approximentally 40%(?) of its viewable area at any one time. It really needs escorts. That it was unaccompanied by escorts should have been a dead giveaway that it WAS A TRAP!!

Doomsday Machine. Ok granted you can't penetrate its neutronium hull, but that doesn't mean you have to do strafing runs. Just sit over its axis. And btw....that thing being so ancient?? It would have its own eco-system by the time Enterprise encountered it.

Imperial walkers. Of ffs, stop flying in front of them. Ok yes theyre shielded. Still.
