The Death Star is a moon-sized starship, one of the largest in the Star Wars universe.  Armed with a terrifying [[superlaser]] capable of destroying an entire planet, regardless of defenses, it was intended to be a symbol of 'control through fear' in the [[Tarkin Doctrine]].  The first Death Star was used by [[Grand Moff Tarkin]] to destroy [[Princess Leia]]'s home planet of [[Alderaan]].
