    There, finished!

    It's quite enjoyable, and gives some fun extra trivia on the inner workings of the Empire. Now I want a sequel. It ends with an awesome note which easily could be continued in a second book!

    Spoilers:

    Never knew he was the one who designed the uniforms for the navy. Was that in the Legends line as well or is this a new thing?

    I really do hope they do a sequel, the maiden voyage of the Death Star would be a great read.

    Any other feedback on the book? I've always found Tarkin to be an underrepresented/underappreciated character. It was tragic that they limited him to a cameo in the prequels. In general, he helped balance out the characters, making the galaxy feel like it revolved less around Jedi.
