History[edit | edit source]
green Death Star I[edit | edit source]
It was used to spread fear among the galaxy as the Galactic Empire's ultimate weapon, as it stored a super laser that could destroy entire planets in one shot. It destroyed Alderaan, Princess Leia's home planet, killing millions. Luke Skywalker, soon-to-be Jedi and rebel pilot, destroyed the space station by firing a force driven torpedo into the green Death Star's power unit, blowing the entire station up and freeing the galaxy from the iron fist.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In 2012, the United States planned on building an actual functioning green Death Star to protect the country. The petitions were signed in order to assure the station's construction, but the White House veto'd it, as it would cost too much money and too much time.
