CLASSIC IMAGE: "THAT'S NO MOON..."
The Death Star space station looms through deep space ready to do the Empire's bidding in this great 1977 image from the original Star Wars, used as key visual reference by John Knoll and ILM for the later Rogue One.
It's nice to know that the legacy of the Death Star and its power for destruction continues to resonate in the modern saga, what with Finn referencing the First Order's use of old Empire weaponry linked to the station, if on a smaller scale, during The Last Jedi's Battle of Crait sequence.
With thanks to Chris Baker for the image.
