Diameter is used to describe the sizes of planets and moons. The diameter is used in game to determine the following:

When attacking a moon with one or more Death Stars, the chance that the moon will be destroyed is:
There is also a chance that the attacking Death Stars and any other ships in the fleet will be destroyed. The chance of this occurring is:
