Starkiller Base is a snowy planet that was converted into a superweapon by the First Order. Like the Death Star I and II, Starkiller Base was capable of destroying entire planets. However, it was superior to the previous models; it relied on energy harvested from the sun, was several times larger than the Death Stars, and could destroy more than one planet at a time, its first target being the Hosnian system, the seat of the New Republic's Senate.
- Starkiller was the last name George Lucas had originally intended to use for Luke and Leia before changing their last name to Skywalker.
- The name "Starkiller" has also been used for various subjects in the Star Wars universe, including the (Legends) secret apprentice of Darth Vader in The Force Unleashed series of video games aka Galen Marek.
