    How big should the DS1 be, in your opinion? The DS2 looks a quarter of the size? Do you mean that it was the right size, or should've been a quarter smaller, too??

    The DS2 is about a quarter the size of our moon. That is fine, that is roughly correct.

    if i had to guess, just on the picture, the DS1 looks to be just smaller than the weapons dish of DS2. IMO, should be about the same size.

    The DS2 and the DS1 should be the same size? Is that what you're are trying to say??

    What weapon's dish?

    So, my picture of the DS2 is correct? I hope it is not, because billions probably lived on the Death Star DS2!!! Lando Calirissian, you evil man!!!!

    I don't' know the EU numbers, but with its unfinished state, there may well have been fewer deaths in the DS2 than the original. Also, I personally don't like the idea of it being 1/4 the size if the moon. That seems ridiculouly large.

    Yeah. Yes. Yep. Well, are you saying that the DS2 is actually even smaller than the DS1?

    Remember, there may have been millions or even billions on the Death Stars, but remember the evacuation drill in Episode 6, when Anakin Skywalker was dying and his son was dragging his body onto his spaceship? Luke escaped, they all certainly escaped........................

    They did not all escape. Most died.

    Remember the guys that were running on the evacuation when Luke was dragging Anakin's body to his shuttle/spaceship??

    They escaped. Luke was there for a few minutes talking to Anakin, and he managed to escape, albeit in a matter of seconds, coincidentally....................

    If Luke could escape, then they could escape. Why wouldn't they escape? What do you think, the rebels had blockades to make sure that they stayed on the death star 2 (DS2) and died on it??? No, that's is not even mentioned in the films............

    Besides, if some would escape, why wouldn't the others escape??

    How many people were on the 2nd Death Star? A million minimum? No way that they can get everyone out in time. If we can't get everyone out of the way (somewhere in the thousands maybe) of a impeding natural disaster when they have days warning how are a million people plus going to get off the Death Star in like 5 minutes? No way

    The Death Star and a place with a natural disaster have different geographies.....

    If people have a couple days warning they can still get out of there. Some people refuse to leave. Take Hurricane Katrina for example. People had a couple days notice to get out but a lot of people couldn't or wouldn't. I'm not sure how many live in New Orleans but its somewhere in the 10's or 100's of thousands. A lesser amount of people had days to leave but weren't able to. The million plus people on the 2nd DS had moments to leave so how could they get off? Remember Tarkin? He was told to leave but didn't.

    The DS1 exploded just several seconds after we saw Tarkin just sitting there. There is no possible way, even if he changed his mind, that he could have escaped it.....

    Did it hurt??

    That's what I said. Being blown would hurt a lot...

    Tarkin died instantly. He didn't suffer burns and pain from burns as he floated in space and died. It was so powerful that it vaporized him and he turned to ashes in a matter of a second or less. Am I not wrong?? I changed my mind, from before....

    To quote Sirius Black/Gary Oldman from Harry Potter, it was quicker than falling asleep.....

    The EU numbers place the DS2 at 900 km. DS1 at 160km. The moon is about 3462 km. The idea of it being that large is a bit ridiculous but i can't do anything about those numbers.

    Yes and no. That depends on the viewer.

    Tarkin died in a explosion that was pretty hot. Not sure how hot but most likely hot than an atom bomb so yes it would hurt for like a second...

    Ever hear of 3rd degree burn victims??? Was Tarkin in pain and agony like them???

    Or, did his body turn to ashes within seconds???

    I'd say he was in much worse pain than 3rd degree burn victims for a matter of seconds...

    Yep. Yeah. Yes. Probably like 10th degree burns...........

    But only for a split second, NOT a matter of seconds...............

    Such a powerful explosion would turn anything/anybody to ashes in a second..............

    Evil rebel criminals and traitors!!!!

    You are being just as contradictory.
    Fact of the matter is the god damn sizes of the Death Stars are ridiculous. Mostly it depends on the damn perception of the viewer. Some people do not like the 900km for the DS2, some people do. Canon says this, but fanon says that. and Canon can all so say something else. fact of the matter is it is also open to interpretation.

    LEAVE THE SIZE ALONE.
