So clever the way that as well as the across clue, the downs also work with two answers to a single clue.

There's even a neat little troll in there, which is that if you're a Star Wars fan your mind will immediately leap to "It's a trap!" for the solution to 71 down, but that will then lead you down the path of Star Trek being the best franchise
