From "Clerks":
Dante: My friend here is trying to convince me that any independent contractors working on the uncompleted Death Star were innocent victims when it was destroyed by the Rebels.
-courtesy IMDB

Kevin Smith wonders (at length) about the moral culpability of those who worked on the Death Star without being Imperial stormtroopers or the like. Well, it's a question worth asking... and Michael Reaves and Steve Perry give answering it a shot in Star Wars: Death Star, the story of the doomed battle station and a handful of those aboard during her short but exciting career.

From official release/information:

From publicity material: In this new Star Wars adventure, Death Star takes the reader through three stages of the mighty space station's history; Construction, Shakedown, and the Final Battle. Death Star is an inside glimpse of the inner workings of the notorious battle station from initial contrauction to its imminent destruction. From the daily drills of the Imperial troops to tending bar at a cantina, what daily life was like on the mammoth vessel is seen through the eyes of soldiers, criminals, and civilians as the Death Star becomes fully operational. Familiar characters such as Grand Moff Tarkin and Darth Vader play integral roles as they offer unique perspectives regarding the battle station's role in the universe.
