Hi, new to the board. I joined because I'm writing a timeline on an alternate history site, where an Alien Space Bat makes and transports an altered Death Star to the Earth 1985 and I have some questions about Death Stars. (altered as to want to work with the US, going for fun, not World Conquest) Now I'm using a Mark II, because bigger is better of course. Initially I was assuming an all human crew, including clones and not counting droids. But now I'm wondering if I should have aliens on board. If so how many aliens would one expect to find on a Mark II Death Star? I've read that stormtroopers were all male humans. BUt that the finished Mark I had a recreational area that included civilian comforts, such as a Cantina. Totat crew numbers seem to be around 5 million. I'm thinking several hundred thousands droids, from vacuum cleaners to war bots. But aliens? First impulse is just a couple thousands in the civilian comforts section. Any thoughts? Especially on numbers and types of aliens. Oh. And am I correct that there is no significant life extension in the SW universe?
