Kyber Crystal Cannon? Edit

Could the Death Star's Planet Destroyer Cannon be powered by a HUGE Kyber Crystal?

  • I thought that was a very obvious allusion too, but until and unless it's confirmed either in an episode/comic/novel/short story/game, or by one of The Powers That Be, we cannot add it to the article because it would be speculative. Also, please remember to sign your comments by adding four ~ symbols at the end of your comments. Thank you. — DigiFluid(Whine here) 02:44, September 27, 2014 (UTC)
    • It's pretty obvious that it's for the Death Star, but I agree with DigiFluid in that we don't have official confirmation yet. It's likely that, if this is for the Death Star, we'll get that confirmation in Tarkin. If we do, then the information can be added. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 03:10, September 27, 2014 (UTC)


Tarkin: "Sentinel Base"?Edit

For anyone out there who's read the new Luceno book, does it identify the Death Star itself as "Sentinel Base," or is that just the name of the Imperial base/construction facility overseeing the Death Star itself? I also ask because this may end up prompting an article name change, much though I would rather not. — DigiFluid(Whine here) 14:24, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

From reading Tarkin, I believe that Sentinel Base was the moon that oversaw the construction. It could be that the entire facility was dubbed Sentinel Base, since the Death Star was part of the construction site, but I read it as being the ground base on the moon, since they mentioned an inhospitable environment.- JustPhil (talk) 15:32, December 24, 2014 (UTC)
I just posted on the Del Rey Facebook page asking for clarification, since there's been confusion here about this. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 17:45, December 24, 2014 (UTC)
According to Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know, the Death Star had multiple codenames during its construction such as Sentinel Base and Ultimate Weapon. Case closed. - Comm. Boots (talk) 21:51, September 21, 2015 (UTC)
Can you quote the exact passage? Because that's not what the Databank entry says: "The Empire initially appointed Vice Admiral Rancit to supervise the network of bases protecting the Death Star, an effort overseen from the remote Sentinel Base." - Brandon Rhea(talk) 21:54, September 21, 2015 (UTC)

Move to its formal name? Edit

In Last Call at the Zero Angle, it's shown that the Death Star has a formal name, which is "DS-1 platform." Since we did move the Legends article to its formal name "DS-1 Orbital Battle Station"), shouldn't we do the same here? I did ask Jason Fry on Twitter about it, and he confirmed that "DS-1 platform" is indeed the formal codename, the one that would used in official documents. --LelalMekha (talk) 15:09, September 20, 2015 (UTC)

  • Not to parse words too much, but that's not exactly what he said. "That's what I imagined" (which suggests a single author's interpretation) isn't the same thing as "That's the official name." So I wouldn't move this based on that. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 15:14, September 20, 2015 (UTC)
    • Should have seen it coming. Never mind, then. --LelalMekha (talk) 15:21, September 20, 2015 (UTC)
