2017 Summer Program

Death Stars have been the villainous super weapons that tie the chapters of the Star War Saga together. Facts vary: Diameter:100 to 500 miles? Crew: 1 to 2 million. Robots: 410,000. Cost: The Obama White House declared the platform far too costly for a planet killer that a single X-Wing might destroy. The Plans: Did Rogue One make that story clear?

Enter the universe of Retcon (Retroactive Continuity) – filling in the story that makes a saga work. Add to the story of the DS-1 Platform. Construct the characters that contrived to dominate the galaxy. Construct (and join)the Resistance heroes that conspired to sabotage their evil. Join the class in constructing a 12 foot diameter Death Star model that will dominate our intergalactic game of chess. Build and launch U Wings, Tie Strikers, and T65C - A2 X-Wings (and ships of your design) that are the Pawns, Knight and Rooks of this contest. Add your chapter.

Rocket Engines and Batteries included.
