Bismarck versus the Death Star

If you haven’t seen Rouge One because you didn’t make bail or parole or the only channel you get in your ward is the weather channel.  Don’t worry because there are no spoilers here.

When I left the theater after seeing Rogue One, I was musing philosophically.  I’ve channeled my Nazi Mom to draw some similarities between the battleship Bismarck and the Death Star.

Bismarck Death Star
Built to be the ultimate power in the Atlantic. Built to be the ultimate power in the galaxy
Painted a menacing grey color. Painted a menacing grey color.

Fanatic in command.

Built by an Evil Empire.

Built by an Evil Empire.
Blew up a battleship in a single shot. Blew up a planet in a single shot.
Fatal flaw: Rudder. Fatal flaw: Vent port.

Attacked by small,obsolete aircraft.

Destroyed on its maiden voyage. Destroyed on its maiden voyage.

Obviously, there can be other analogies between the Bismarck and the Death Star.  Feel free to  comment on my theory or draw your own analogies.
