We all know the Battle of Yavin was a major event in galactic history, just like how 9/11 was a major event in American History. But i was thinking when we were discussing 9/11 conspiracies in school. Is there any canonical evidence of some individuals on Imperial-ruled worlds believing the destruction of the Death Star to be an inside job? It would make sense considering it would gain more support for the Empire during the GCW.—Unsigned comment by220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs).
No. The plans were handed down from Poggle the Lesser (Geonosian Prime Minister) to Count Dooku (Sith Lord). Soon after, maybe 20 BBY or 19 BBY, the wookiees were used as slaves. Now, if you're wanting to know who blew the Death Star up then might I suggest watching Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope? Here, I'll give you a hint.

I think you completely missed the point of his question, Dawth. Hint: it had nothing to do with what actually happened, but with what others THINK happened. In answer to the original question, no, there is no canonical evidence that anyone thinks the destruction of the Death Star was an inside job, though there ARE in-universe rumors (started by Imperial propagandists) that Alderaan's destruction was the result of the Alderaanians' own superweapon research. There is also the Ante-Endor Association, who insist that the destruction of the Second Death Star was a fabrication. All that said, this completely non-canon video is a heck of a lot of fun. jSarek (talk) 11:45, April 25, 2013 (UTC)
The Second Death Star really put the phrase "inside job" into fictional reality. There was that huge est. 40 ft. opening which I don't know why some idiot would leave that exposed. Anyway, the only "inside job" that happened in the first Death Star was the stealing of visual evidence. What he, she, or they saw, if you will. --Dawth Mawl (talk) 13:23, April 25, 2013 (UTC)
