Death Star conference room
General information



Death Star I, Death Star Overbridge


Galactic Empire

"This bickering is pointless!"
Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin

The Death Star conference room or meeting room[1] was located in the overbridge of the first Death Star. It was one of the many places onboard the Death Star where the military and political hierarchy of the Galactic Empire could meet. Prior to the destruction of the first Death Star, the commanders of the station met in the conference room. Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin announced the dissolution of the Imperial Senate and the participants discussed the threat posed by the Rebel Alliance.



There was a high level of security around the conference room. Four security points, each requiring a higher level of security clearance than the last, had to be passed in order to reach the room from general areas of the space station. The room itself was constantly guarded regardless of whether it was in use or not. Two Navy troopers remained in the room during meetings. One reason for the high level of security was that the Empire was fearful of surveillance infiltration by the Rebels. Another more obvious reason was the fact that high level Imperials would meet in the conference room which made it an obvious target for Rebel spies to plant a bomb or perform a suicide attack.

Room interior


The room had gray, metallic walls and a polished black table that gave it a menacing look that reflected the strength and ruthless ambition of the Empire. The table in the center of the room had twelve seats arranged around it. During the conference immediately following the capture of Princess Leia Organa, only nine of these seats were occupied. Although the table was round the seating arrangement had a distinct hierarchy. One of the chairs around the table had an extended back and was occupied by the senior Imperial official. During the period before the Battle of Yavin, Grand Moff Tarkin held this position. The officers next in the chain of command would sit either side of this chair and the most junior of attendees would sit opposite. When Darth Vader attended meetings held in the conference room he would rarely take a seat at the table preferring to hover menacingly around the backs of the other delegates.

There were computer terminals installed at each position on the table that were linked to the Death Star central command computers. In the center of the table there was a highly polished holoprojector that was operated through the computer terminals. It could be used to display three-dimensional models of potential targets.

The furniture in the Death Star conference room was produced by Sirromco.
