I also vote for the Death Star ... cute idea though. This might be a
case where going further in one or the other direction would be better:
less with non-clutered line drawings OR more with clearer images in less
distracting colours. If you actually use it as a logo ... and thus on
your business card and other documents, then something simpler might be
better... Or have the simpler one as your logo and a clearer one as part
of your webpage design.
