A starship is a space vessel capable of interstellar travel under its own power.

Debates

Certain trekkies have attempted to argue that the Death Star is not a starship, basing the claim on its poor maneuverability and "low density" of weapon mounts, low thickness of armor relative to its diameter. Why they would make this claim when it is obviously capable of propelling itself from one star system to another is a mystery. The listed attributes have nothing to do with the feature that distinguishes it as a massive starship, its hyperdrive.
