    I mean, it was the whole reason for fighting the Emperor in Ep I & III, right?
    So will we see plans of it, or have it background, like Emp walking through it, or in the sky in the background of the Emperor's secret planet?

    I don't think so. Death Star was completed just prior to ANH (remember in ANH when an officer comes and tells Tarkin that all the systems are operational and asks him what course should they set). The second Death Star took at most 4 years to build (mostly), so I don't think that they'd be building the first one throughout 20 years or so. ;) Might be a clue, though, like Palpy looking at the DS's designs and plans...

    Yes, in fact it will. I'm guessing we won't see the Death Star itself but only the plans for its construction, which I predict will be proposed by Count Dooku.

    I think the best we can hope for is briefly seeing the beginnings of it's construction, thought that's unlikely. It would be a nice easter egg if you saw blueprints of it in the backgroud, or on Palpatine's desk. That would be sort of fun.

    I'm guessing you mean Ep 4 and 6. No, the Death Star really doesn't have anything to do with the PT.

    I dont see how the Death Star will be in EpIII. It is a product of the OT and will not be seen in EpIII.

    On the other hand, we will start to see Star Destroyers and Tie Fighters (or early versions of them).

    I don't think so. The Death Star is introduced during the opening crawl of ANH. There is no need for it to be introduced in Episode 3. It's a new creation as of ANH, and Episode 3 takes place about 20 years before that movie.

    I think Episode II is only going to have time enough to show the very beginning of the Empire. I think it'll be too early for anyone to even think of something like the Death Star yet.

    I didn't mean, are we going to see the Death Star bobing around blowing stuff up.
    I just thought it would be cool to see how the Emperor was already planning ahead, as he seems to do throughout all the movies. Throw in a hologram image of a prototype.
    That could somehow tie in Cpt. Tarkin (i think thats his name).

    I have wet dreams about a young Tarkin showing rough plans to a spherical battlestation with planet-destroying capabilities, only to be ridiculed by his superiours. ("Are you sure you got the scale right?")

    I think plans for the Death Star could be hinted at late in the film but I don't think we'll actually see it. The Death Star was pretty much a manifestation of the Empire's power, and the Empire is just coming into power over the course of Ep3. They would need to be more established before taking on a project of that scale.

    There had better not be a Death Star in Ep III. If there is, it's one more big blow to continuity.

    And if they show the plans, it would have to have the laser dish thing on the equator - just like the plans show in ANH!

    I think that one of Palps last lines in the movie should be something like " In time, those planets who do not join us, will be wipped away with a single blink of the eye" IE hinting at the DS's ability to wipe out a planet in a single blast also lending alot more credibility to Vader;s " he will join us or die, Master" line, which is evidence to the possible line above

    Here's what I say :

    - A look at the Death Star being built = Probably not.
    - Rumours of the Death Star being built = That would be nice.

    A plan laying on the shelf for 20 years before it's executed is not that rare...

    the very PT is a fine example!

    no no no. im sure this idea was in the head of palpatine, but so was creating the clones and controlling the galaxy.

    so by the time ANH comes around we will know that palpy's in power, but the death star should come as a suprise to show he as at the peak of his power. being able to create that of mass destruction.
