Great resources, but you give your opponent a new way to win the game. This might not be worth it...
It's basically a Trench Run you play on yourself.. But at least you can play Defense Upgrade on it and make it 13 defense capacity.

Theoretically 18 if you keep the Coruscant Defense Fleet in reserve (commit to the force?) to take damage for you instead of the objective.
Seems like a liability. I don't think I'd ever choose this as a starting objective.
It can actually work very well as a starting objective. It allows you to slam down a Vader or Palpatine on the first turn, which can really be difficult for the LS to overcome. It will almost invariably have a huge target painted on it, which can work to your advantage. The LS player may overextend in an effort to take out Heart, at which time you can play There Is No Escape to get terrific value. Also, it takes the heat off your other, more fragile objectives like The Emperor's Web. You have to be careful with Heart, but it offers plenty of tremendous advantages if you're willing to play around it.

With the new Coruscant objective in A Dark Time, this actually got better. Now you can use your CDF to defend this and the new objectives. Pretty awesome!
