Solar Powered Farms

I think it would add to late game depth if farms only worked in systems with stars, much like solar panels. This way we can kill their stars and starve them out. If the Galactic and Planetary Capitols also needed solar power to generate food, we could actually wipe out people by killing all their stars. I understand that at higher tech levels super novas do not kill planets, and this would be another cool stalemate breaker.

We are slowly seeing the birth of factory food production.
I don't think food production would require the star's light if enough technology and
resource are present. Although providing enough food for billions of population seems
done more economically on conventional way though...
