I am asking if, hypothetically, The death star jumps to Yavin through hyperspace, but it lands with the super laser facing the other way, why? I mean wouldn't it have been easier for the empire to jump facing the planet. I mean i know it would ruin the story because the Rebels wouldn't have a chance to save the day but the empire doesn't want that. So why not jump with the super laser facing the planet? please help me make sense of this plan. Thank you.
