Re: Imperial Rank Insignia Discussion

That's so weird. She comes off as some militarist but before this she was just some corporate heiress or something? Bleh. I'm gonna head-canon it that she also sidelined for COMPNOR or something, the Sithstaffel like the IRL SS might have some weird parallel ranking system to the actual military... ...

Re: Feelipeens: Drug suspects found in secret police cell

To be fair they've been doing this for forever but... ye-ah cold comfort. Doesn't help that people pretty much think that the CHR is some organization that just help ruthless baby-eating criminals and that anything bad about the government = some kind of destabilization plot probably by Hillary Clin...

Re: Last Jedi first trailer.

Stas, the point of Kylo IS the well-done (IMO) subversion of URGH TOUGH MACHO EDGELORD Siths and it's actually quite relevant since it is a great portrayal of alienated radicalized wannabe-badass youths. Spree shooters, power-tripping maniacs, etc. The First Order's parallels to child-kidnapping Bok...

Re: Imperial Rank Insignia Discussion

Maybe that badge represents her governance - which a Moff has - but it doesn't say anything about her place in the military itself which may be something else from that of a Grand Moff? And she IS a "governor-general" of the Lothal world... system? Sector?

Re: Versus Series: Ship Combat in Star Wars (Revived)

Well, the thing is, TIEs can also operate off of other, smaller spaceship platforms, or off of modified freighters for 'escort carrier' missions, or off a big damn concrete pad in the middle of a temperate rainforest. Most or all other fighters can do those too... but I think the "unnecessarie...

Re: Versus Series: Ship Combat in Star Wars (Revived)

Hmmm... TIEs were built to be fielded with ISDs so in their calculations, "being cornered and surrounded by enemy defenses" probably wasn't really factored since that's something the ISDs would handle. ISDs are used for patrolling and occupying territories and suppressing insurgencies, the...

Re: Versus Series: Ship Combat in Star Wars (Revived)

I don't think the increased armoring means that the shields are weaker... I think Imperial doctrine just has TIE fighters serve as extensions of the ISD and other capship's combat capabilities, and in fleet combat we see them used defensively, whereas the Rebel doctrine has X-Wings and others used m...

Perhaps instead of space for stormtroopers, all those extra cavities are instead filled with jerry rigged shield support systems - like imagine jeeps that haul huge telephone post-sized vacuum tubes and fuse tubes to overtaxed subsystems, or Wookie resistance members and IG-droids and MERCENARY JAWA...

Re: Would the assertor fit in The Last Jedi?

Re: Would the assertor fit in The Last Jedi?

Realistically I think it's a bit blocky for what one would want onscreen where the general profile counts for more then fine detail. Some kind of battleship though, sure, I'd be surprised if the next movie lacks more space battle. Too many engines too, IMO. And too many cannons... it looks like tho...
