The Haynes Death Star Owner’s Technical Manual is essential for any current or aspiring Death Star owner. Given everything the Rebels had to go through to obtain data about the Imperial DS-1 Orbital Battle Station, you should consider yourself lucky to have access to these remarkably detailed illustrations of the Death Star’s internal workings.
This manual traces the origins of the Death Star, from concept to a top-secret project that begins before the foundation of the Empire, which draws design inspiration from the Trade Federation’s spherical warships.
In this manual, the Death Star’s onboard systems and controls are explained in detail, and are illustrated with an astonishing range of computer-generated artwork, floor plans, cutaways, and exploded diagrams, which were newly created by artists Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas, the guys behind the Millennium Falcon Owner’s Workshop Manual. Text is by their colleague Ryder Windham, author of more than 50 Star Wars books.
This is the most thorough technical guide to the Death Star available, covering history, development and prototyping, superstructure, energy and propulsion, weapons and defensive systems, hangar bays, security, service and technical sectors, crew facilities, and with information about the Death Star II and its planetary shield generator.
