Conceived as the Empire's ultimate weapon, the Death Star battle station is equipped with a planet-shattering superlaser. The station is heavily shielded, defended by TIE starfighters and laser cannons, and invested with firepower greater than that of half the Imperial fleet. The Empire's 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 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, 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 fifty 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 with information about the 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.

Praise for Death Star Owner's Technical Manual

"As an all-in-one resource for the Death Star, the Death Star Owner's Technical Manual is the book to turn to. It's a wealth of information on one of the most iconic ships from the Star Wars films."--Roqoo Depot

"For a casual fan, there's all sorts of neat trivia that will keep anyone's attention. For a fleet junkie, the book is a huge wealth of knowledge that you'll come back to scan again and again. The Haynes Death Star Owner's Technical Manual is a fun and brilliant read. Go pick it up."--Tosche Station
