This CG Timelapse Of A Death Star Being Built

The CG timelapse of a Death Star being built is fairly terrifying since it makes you wonder about what if someone could actually do this? Well honestly it would take the concentrated effort of not just one nation but of an entire world to make it happen to start with, especially since the superlaser would be bigger than a lot of towns that many of us have known. When you take into scope the size of the Death Star you have to realize that it’s the size of a small moon, and that it houses untold millions of people aboard a construct that is a movable space station.  It housed close to two million individuals which meant that it was a city planet unto itself and its destructive capabilities were well-noted in the movies.

But the raw materials needed for such a thing had to be tremendous and something that only a fantasy story could devise which is comforting in a way. Still, watching it go together is like watching the face of death being transcribed by an over-eager engineer as you can see with horrible accuracy just how the station would come together. It’s a marvel of technology and engineering honestly but it’s still something that seems like it would be too big to keep near any inhabited world and keep quiet. But then again this is the Empire we’re talking about in terms of who was going to use it and they were experts in keeping a lot of things hush hush until it was just about too late for the Rebels to do anything about it.

Imagine how many worlds had to be plundered of their natural resources to bring this thing to being and then how many people had to be drawn or recruited into service just for one section of this massive construct. This would take a serious amount of labor, but in the Star Wars universe it’s easy to believe that droids would be used extensively for a project of this scale when it came to anything that didn’t require a human touch to make the necessary adjustments and calculations that worker droids probably weren’t capable of. For anything else the always expendable droids that the Empire employed by the thousands could be depended on most times.

Standing upon this thing seems like it would have carried an enormous weight on one’s shoulders if they knew what it was for. The sad thing is that those on the Death Star weren’t all absolutely evil. They didn’t fully understand just what the station was meant to do until it fired on Alderaan, and even then some justified the mass murder by telling themselves that it was for the greater good of the Empire. Many however would never be the same after its test run at Scarif, where it annihilated an entire Empire-operated base that had been overrun by the Rebels. That however might have been seen as a necessary evil on their part simply because their base had been compromised. But to anyone with a hint of a rational mind Alderaan would have seemed like murder.

There were after all two sides in the galactic war, and they both had an opinion.
