    This is one of the smallest ships I've seen with a superlaser:

    can't see it getting much smaller than that. And Star Destroyers aren't exactly cheap and easy to run.

    Bringing back the Death Star for ROTJ was a mistake.

    Bringing back the DS for the ST would be an even bigger mistake.

    "Keep frontin' the Empire, to all you Vader haters out there, we'll blow your planet up!"

    "Men, you know that we've got it! DEATH STAR!"

    "Luke, not ready are you!"
    "But, there's a city in the clouds where they're keepin' my crew and a Jedi's gotta do what a Jedi's gotta do... so Vader I'm comin' for you".

    And neo-Sith would be an even bigger mistake than Death Stars in the ST.

    No bad guys with red lightsabers I think would disappoint Disney if they wanna make a return off their investment.

    There are alternatives to NEO-Sith.

    Fair point. I just think red lightsabered bad guys is guaranteed.

    Please no Death Star. I guess I'd be fine if they had a superlaser thing, but even that would feel like a ripoff. To me, I think they can come up with something even more terrifying.

    This was in the ole locked forum but technology advancement, and superweapons, is sort of a thing. (Death Star in OT, Clones superior to droids in PT). I would think maybe a weapon of mass destruction but with a biological tinge might be next in line.

    I never had a problem with another DS in ROTJ, and I wouldn't have a problem with one or something similar in the ST. But sphere motifs are prevalent in all of the SW movies, and I like superlasers, so if they can find other ways to use those I'd be ok with that. A lot of people seem to have problems with anything being repeated in SW, but from the moment "I have a bad feeling about this" was said for the second time in ANH, Lucas set up a pattern of repetition (or what he refers to as rhyming) which has been carried through all the movies, and of which I appreciate and still enjoy discovering some of the more subtle instances.

    That's a pretty cool speculation on advancement of the super weapon. I still want my ST sans super weapon but this was cool non the less.
