Got step 1 fairly quickly. Since then--nothing. Even with the spoilers I get nothing but gibberish.
It may be time to punt on this one.

What is this "technological terror you've constructed"...? The Force keeps leading me into black holes, and I've got nothing but a mess for the Jawa scavengers to clean up. ~Darth

Off the couch.
I needed the nudges and a bit of trial and error, but I figured it out.
Luckily my fifteen-year-old son was looking over my shoulder as I realized how to solve it and he was more than happy to continue the slog. He came to me a few minutes later with the answer. Cheap labor, but I guess it was educational.

Made one last attempt and finally got the right combination. Quite the slog, but I am finally off the couch.
I guess I will make it to the leaderboard, but I don't speak cryptic very well, so who knows?

I need a nudge. Is there anything more to how to try all combinations rather than just guess every possible combination?

I think the puzzle would be good enough if you just *did* the numbers but obviously you must do something with an extra twist.
