Re: SW AU - A Glimmer of Hope

That got me wondering, has it ever been stated in a canon source that the original Death Star could only fire it's super laser at planet sized objects?

In this AU though, it can be assumed that this capability was included in the original. The film DS was intended as a terror weapon, to intimidate entire populations. Given that the Empire is still fighting a war in this version, the ability to hit smaller, strategically important targets would be a higher priority.
