I like that these are the very same beings that star warlocks derive power from. Caiphon, Acamar, Hadar, Gibbeth, Zhudun, etc. show up in the names of warlock spells/curses. I'd love it if these guys out as epic level threats. Imagine what happens when a star-warlock is forced to fight his patron.
For some reason I really dig that this is a controller monster that only deals ongoing damage. And it just feels like a black hole, with that aura and Corpse Star's Grip.
Some appear to be. In the background on the star pact for warlocks, it appears that at least some stars have some kind of sentience, although the ones seen described vaguely so far appear to be alien and frequently sinister. I don't believe I've seen anything that indicates that all stars are sentient.The stars are living creatures on D&D?
I am actually really liking that even though there isn't a default setting, the fluff is consistant between the various sourcebooks.

I'm developing the opinion that 4e actually has the strongest default setting ever, because so much crunch is associated with the default setting... it might not have a name, but in every other respect...
