As “Rogue One” Approaches, Energy Company Calculates Daily Operating Cost of the Death Star – Core77

Whenever someone’s referred to as the “architect of destruction” of a particular thing, that person is rarely an actual architect. Except, of course, in the case of the Death Star’s architect; last year we heard him mount an impassioned defense of his design for that ill-advised exhaust port.

Now for some more Death Star infrastructure talk. British power company Ovo Energy took a close look at the battle station’s operations, contacted experts in a variety of fields, and calculated its daily operating costs in British pounds. While they’ve obviously considered energy-hogs like that planet-destroying laser, they’ve also examined the costs of electricity, laundry, garbage disposal and recycling, and food and drink:

It must be noted that Ovo, being a British company, has rather Anglicized the needs of Death Star occupants. For example, in “Feeding the Crew” an allowance has been made for two cups of tea per day, as well as a bizarrely low-protein diet for Stormtroopers: Porridge for breakfast, baked bread (alone!) for lunch, and freaking casserole for dinner. Is it a wonder that New York City and other world capitals don’t have any British restaurants?
