Human Civilization is currently Type 0.
The chances of humanity moving to a Type 1 while remaining on a single planet (earth) are slim to none.
IF the earth is ever a continuous city (no non-developed land left) it is predicted to be about a .9 civilization.
The current maximum theoretical civilization is a type 4 civilization that harnesses the energy of the Universe (as we know it now).
The Death Star represents enough power to completely obliterate a Type 1 civilization. The Sun Crusher (in the Star Wars Extended Universe) represents enough power to destroy a Type 2 Civilization. This puts the Empire as being between a type 2 and a type 3 civilization (between utilizing the energy of a solar system and a galaxy).
Please, PLEASE do NOT feed the trolls.
