Publisher's summaryEdit

"The regional governors now have direct control over their territories. Fear will keep the local systems in line. Fear of this battle station."

It is a period of galactic civil war. On one side, a ragtag collection of freedom fighters called the Rebel Alliance. On the other, the terrible might of the Empire, best symbolized by the technological terror known as the Death Star.

An armored battle station the size of a small moon, the Death Star packed enough firepower to destroy planets. Alliance researchers have uncovered many of the secrets of the most devastating weapon in galactic history, and gathered the information together in this one volume. The Death Star has been destroyed but its legacy lives on.

Behind the scenesEdit

There is a printing mistake in this book: Page 94 ends with the complete RPG statistics for a Repulsortank, and then page 95 immediately starts with the last part of the RPG statistics of something unidentified. The first part of that statistics, including the identification of whatever they're talking about, is missing. Apparently, the data is on the System operator droid described on page 93, because the data coincides and then page 95 goes on with abridged versions of the statistics of other characters from page 93, in the same order.
