Re: Something big

I imagine that most ships have heat sinks, or a cooling system that takes advantage of the coldness of space itself, to help off-set a certain level of heat accrued by active shielding (ie taking fire). However, just like all systems, it can be damaged and/or strained beyond its limits and therefore...

Re: Something big

I also like the fact that it looks like the engine exhausts could be disengaged at the gimbal. So if one engine is perhaps damaged and at risk of blowing up or something, it could be ejected from the ship.

Headcanon is fun.

What does your head canon tell you?

Re: Something big

Seeing as how it look like it has the ability to project shields widely enough to even encompass other ships (let alone maybe even an entire fleet), why not call it something like:

Aegis-class

Contego-class

Clipeum-class

Aspida-class

Escudo-class

Ancile-class/Ancilia-class

Re: Something big

That looks suitably intimidating. I'm guessing that it'd be in the 8km range?

Re: Shield Issue

Except that the X-Wing novels also specify that they have fore, aft, dorsal, ventral shields as well. So you'd need six globes for that to be true. Well, firstly "Thrawn Series" > "X-Wing series. :D Second, it's quite possible that the globes themselves have various parts to them tha...

Re: Shield Issue

There's also the question of whether there's a shield gap directly below the ship, where the shield generator attaches to the hull. Or... is that why all the Star Destroyers we've seen (I think) have two globes? I've always thought that each projector was for a separate side of the ship. There are ...

Re: Something big

Legends had it that a ship's hyperspace motivator/shunt would burn out (or cut out) as a safety measure when encountering a gravity well of significance, thus the Interdictor-class with gravity-well projectors to prevent FTL escape. We see this can be disabled in TFA: the Falcon exists hyperspace a...

Re: Rogue One (Spoilers)

If the shield gate was simultaneously the projector of, and only entrance through, the shield then it would mean that the shield did in fact go down. I'll have to go back and watch again. Can't wait to have this on BluRay.
