Scene at the end of ROTSEdit
At the end of Revenge of the Sith, there's a scene where Palpatine and Darth Vader are looking at the Death Star being built from a Star Destroyer. That scene takes place on 19 BBY? And if it takes place on 19 BBY, is that the real Death Star that we see 19 years later on A New Hope? Because it sounds strange that they took 19 years to finish the first Death Star, and in less than 4 years they almost build another one.----Skenar (Discusión) 06:58, February 8, 2012 (UTC)
- Hey there, the book Death Star goes into detail about why it took so long. The Empire faced supply problems and sabotage. Also, in The New Essential Chronology, it was revealed that construction was halted to build the Death Star prototype. By the time the second rolled around, they had refined the process.

Death Star PrototypeEdit
I read somewhere that the Death Star seen at the end of Revenge of the Sith was just a prototype, and not the same Death Star as the one from A New Hope. Is that true or false? Is there any evidence for or against either view?

Death Star Owner's Workshop Manual: Previews of the new book show the 120km figure for the DS1- does this mean that it's being retconned? --22.214.171.124 20:47, October 11, 2013 (UTC)
I've revised the page, now that it's been unlocked, to take into account the new content. --126.96.36.199 08:20, November 17, 2013 (UTC)
Why is the diameter here http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Death_Star 160km for the first and 900 for the second Death Star, but on their respective pages it is said that the first DS is 120km in diameter and the second is 160km? When the sources arent consistent shouldnt atleast the wiki be? As a side note it seems to me taht the edit-feature here is a little wonky.
