I know, I know–this week’s book recommendation is a bit silly. But I wanted to have some fun.
The Death Star, although a fictional work of space machina, has been captivating geeks for generations. And it’s no wonder why!
If it existed, the battlestation would be the size of the moon – a moon equipped with a deadly, planet-destroying superlaser. It has two hemispheres and 24 zones to keep the ship operating and serve the Imperial army it houses with recreation like parks and taverns.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg (or one slice of the spacestation, you could say). To learn everything it takes to operate the iconic Star Wars vehicle, pick up the Death Star Owner’s Technical Manual: Imperial DS-1 Orbital Battle Station.
