star destroyers (or equivilant) with superweapon firepower could definitely be interesting
The Empire At War games do mention those- seem more scaled down than in the Galaxies example:
I think we'll see an upgraded version of it... 40 years later, can't have the same weapon that was destroyed twice by the Falcon...
How about a Death Star that is faster and more intense?
Well, that pretty much makes it uncool
If the first scene is just flat-out them blowing up a yet another Death Star, with Luke in the X-Wing cockpit and Han shooting TIE's off his back and everything, I would love it.
I want a cooler and more menacing space station.
Death Star: This time it will actually be star shaped. That's one of the big innovations. Also, it will have a central computer personality and talk. It will also have Dark Side powers. At the end, when Luke Skywalker Jr. blows it up, it will scream, "A curse upon the Light Side foreverrrrrrrr!!!!!" It's gonna be pretty dramatic.
The problem with including a DS in the new movie(s) is that you wouldn't need a giant fleet or a single X-wing to destroy it. All you'd really need to do is install Windows on it and wait for someone to try and use it. Oh wait, someone already did that. Never mind.
They could always steal the Star Forge from KotOR and have it create an enormous fleet of Death Stars.
A return of a Death Star in Star Wars will foreshadow a return of disco music to the mainstream. It was no coincidence that the space station looked like a disco ball or that the first Star Wars movie brought about the disco frenzy in the late 70s. It's all a big conspiracy!
It'll be in the shape of Justin Bieber's head because, you know, "star".
How about one that turns into a giant robot named Unic........never mind............
And voiced by Orson Welles?
Since Orson is no longer with us, maybe a voice actor impersonating Orson Welles
How about a Living Dead Star that would turn all of the inhabitants of the planet, space ship, etc., that was unfortunate enough to be its target into Zombies?
Call it the Undeath Star.
Surely, by Episode VII, it's the "Good Guys" Death Star, and they only use it for peaceful purposes in the name of Galactic Security.....
"If you pay all your taxes and don't start any wars, we'll refract this superlaser to create a beautiful rainbow that covers your whole planet!"
Here to corrupt the galaxy's youth, The Meth Star
I'm sure Maurice LaMarche is available, and he specializes in doing Orson Welles. Observe...
NO I WAS JUST KIDDING
Even if they aren't precisely "Death Stars".... what impact does a planet destroying superweapon have on the galaxy? Surely the Arms Race is heated... Planetary shields are probably in high demand, even if they offer no real protection. And who in the galaxy knows how to build Death Stars?
There is the Empire of course, and whatever engineers survived the first two....
The Rebel Alliance.....
Shady charecters each and every one.... can you trust any of them? Who else may have the tech now that it is thirty years old? Like the nuclear bomb, it is a Pandora's box.... you cant unlearn the technology, and eventually it WILL proliferate.
"Death Star is an idea. Ideas are indestructible."
No Death Stars. Just....no.
Unique original superweapon - if you must. But I'd still prefer not.
