For the population yes, basically everyone dies rather than a -40% population debuff for a while. The Galaxy Gun doesn't hurt trade in any way like the Novalith but does extra damage to the planet to make up for this.

Since we're looking at the Empire's tactical structures, there is no way that I can hide the Galaxy Gun. While the Empire under Darth Vader eliminated funding for most superweapons, focusing instead on conventional naval units, the Galaxy Gun project was already well on the way to completion by the Battle of Endor and was allowed to continue. Essentially a giant launching platform for sending massive particle disintegrator warheads into hyperspace, the Galaxy Gun could hit almost any target in the galaxy for any location, making it in many ways much more dangerous than the Death Star. In theory capable of destroying an entire planet, the Empire rarely used this capacity due to the cost of planet destroying warheads, fear of a public opinion backlash, and the simple fact that destroyed planets could not be reconquered. Instead, smaller warheads that superheated the target planet's atmosphere were deployed instead, killing the entire population of all but the most well shielded planets, allowing them to be easily recaptured.

Gameplay wise, the Galaxy Gun is very similar to the TEC's Novalith cannon. While the Galaxy Gun deals more damage and will almost always kill the planet's entire population, it does not inflict the over time trade and population debuff like the Novalith cannon does.

Special thanks to the modeler Suk Munky and Nomada Firefox of the Star Wars: Alliance for this structure.
