Hopefully our engineers are smart enough to build it without exhaust ports that essentially act as self destruct buttons.

As long as they get an estimate in for fixing it first.

Am guessing they'd have a few issues getting it insured.

So, I guess that means we don't have to feel sympathy because probably it was an all inclusive maintenance contract they provided.

And as long as the Emperor doesn't dumbass by leaking location information about the Death Star whilst still in the building stages! Ha ha ha.

That much scrap metal would need a heck of a scrapyard.
