What can you tell me about the Death Star?

If you can tell me anything, you should probably edit this article.

I'm thinking there's a lot worth saying. Maybe even several supplementary articles' worth.

All I can think of is particularily related to the superlaser.

That said, do you want pure copycat of canon and/or official data, or do you allow, assuming some specific text colouration or else, people's own input and comments on such data?

We should mention that it has the superpower of changing its shape because it should be a sphere and it doesn't want to be.

OR (original research) is permissible, although great detail on the superlaser might best be placed in a superlaser article.

In think in interest of fairness, the article ought to include a balanced presentation with regards to the superlaser concerning the arguments for and against the Death Stars using DET or CR.

In interest of even more fairness, I think it uses both.
DET to initiate, CR to finish off with overkill. :)

Well, actually that's the third possbility that the EU Death Star novel now states is what the battlestation's superlaser does, and should be mentioned accordingly under the "offcial" explanations. The other two are more fanon than canon. :-)
