The Empires diabolical leaders have every reason to believe that their technological terror will induce fear across the galaxy. But the Death Star has one flaw.
This Haynes 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 Federations spherical warships. In this manual, the Death Stars 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, all newly created by artists Chris Reiff and Chris Trevasthe same creative team behind the Millennium Falcon Owners Workshop Manual. Text is by their Falcon colleague Ryder Windham, author of more than fifty Star Wars books.
