Description

Following the success of the Haynes Millennium Falcon Owner's Workshop Manual, this follow-up volume covers the equally iconic Imperial Death Star battle station. The Death Star is a spherical space station, the size of a small moon, highly armoured and armed to destroy anything from enemy spaceships to whole planets. Using cutaway drawings, exploded diagrams and photographs, backed by detailed technical specifications and descriptions of the onboard systems, the Death Star Owner's Workshop Manual reveals the technology contained within and lays bare the awesome power (and weaknesses) of the Empire's ultimate weapon.

Flap copy

Conceived as the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the Death Star battle station was equipped with a planet-shattering superlaser. The station was heavily shielded, defended by TIE starfighters and laser cannons, and carried firepower greater than half of the Imperial fleet. The Empire’s leaders had every reason to believe that their technological terror would induce fear across the galaxy. But the Death Star had one flaw.
This Haynes Manual traces the origins of the Death Star, from its concept through to a top-secret project that began before the foundation of the Empire and drew design inspiration from the Trade Federation’s spherical warships. The Death’s Star’s onboard systems and controls are explained in detail, and illustrated with an astonishing range of computer-generated artwork, floor plans, cutaways and exploded diagrams, all newly created by artists Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas, the same creative team behind the Millennium Falcon Owner’s Workshop Manual. Text is by their Falcon colleague Ryder Windham, author of more than 50 Star Wars books.
Covering history, development and prototyping, superstructure, energy and propulsion, weapons and defensive systems, hangar bays, security, service and technical sectors, crew facilities, and also information about Death Star II and its planetary shield generator, this is the most thorough technical guide to the Death Star available.

This Haynes Manual is fully authorized and approved by Lucasfilm.
