I think I had a copy of the final issue (and only the final issue) of this when I was a kid. The story seems pretty symptomatic of the old EU's tendency to retread plot points, but that art is absolutely gorgeous. The lurid colors, the designs, the recognizable but not photoreferenced characters. So good.

Man, people who thought Starkiller Base was a Death Star rip-off never knew just how bad Legends had those. At least the World Devastators are more inventive than the Sun Crusher or the Dark Saber.

The brilliant work of the Maw Installation.

Yeah, the World Devastators were my favorite of the post-RotJ Imperial Superweapons for exactly that reason. And the oft-forgotten Galaxy Gun from Dark Empire 2 was literally the exact same idea as Starkiller Base, just stripped down to a much smaller form (and not being an actually planet).

So yeah, anybody who simultaneously bitches about the loss of the old EU while decrying Episode 7 as derivative is being more than a wee bit hypocritical.

"What the Empire would have done was build a super-colossal Yuuzhan Vong–killing battle machine. They would have called it the Nova Colossus or the Galaxy Destructor or the Nostril of Palpatine or something equally grandiose. They would have spent billions of credits, employed thousands of contractors and subcontractors, and equipped it with the latest in death-dealing technology. And you know what would have happened? It wouldn't have worked. They'd forget to bolt down a metal plate over an access hatch leading to the main reactors, or some other mistake, and a hotshot enemy pilot would drop a bomb down there and blow the whole thing up. Now that's what the Empire would have done."

Starkiller Base *was* a ripoff. Doesn't make the Sun Crusher any less stupid, though.

Well I never expected that Dark Empire would predict a major element of a Star Wars movie, but here we are.
