    the military can be used for a number of basic functions:

    1. combat
    2. seizing economic and military objectives
    3. occupying territory
    4. incapacitating resources (this means rendering them...

    we don't have to waste a lot of time showing every detail and step taken during a flight in a movie because this is bad story-telling. we don't have pre-flight inspections unless it's for dramatic...

    if the Star Destroyer is stranded at a fixed location on the ground, then transporting those 9,000 stormtroopers is absolutely essential if they are to capture and hold any target of economic and...

    it seems as though some posters on this thread believe that, in spite of this being explicitly declared a WARFARE SCENARIO in the opening post... that basic, undeniable laws of warfare such as...

    to add another wrinkle. you would need to send out all eight of your shuttles on a roughly 450 flights (that means each pilot is flying about 56 sorties per day) with no breaks in order to move all...

    yeah... if the only way for those ships and walkers to leave the Star Destroyer is through that large opening in the belly of the ship... they may not be going anywhere!

    okay, let's be optimistic.

    they have 15 K-79 transports (10 + 6)

    assume that a K79 transport is loaded with 10 troops inside, and 6 other troops clinging for dear life as it travels 90 mph...
  8. really? based on the OP they only have T-4...

    really? based on the OP they only have T-4 shuttles and the K79 troop carriers that are specifically designed as transports. they aren't given any Titan dropships to quickly move those AT-ATs. ...

    gotta admit... it seems like a lot of the arguments in favor of this stranded solitary Star Destroyer conquering the world seems to boil down to
    "LOLNOPE, cuz its Star Wars, bro!"

    there's a...

    I dunno, how can you miss hundreds of guys wearing white PVC plastic armor? how about 100-foot tall walking metal walkers that can be heard marching miles away? or giant spaceships that look like...

    to revisit my arguments based on rate of fire.

    the BEST fighter pilots in the world have recorded accuracy rates under combat conditions of roughly 20%. that means that even the...

    Captain Smith: IRC, the Walkers couldn't deal with little tiny fliers roping them like calves at the 4H children's events. Thus, from feats, they are not dealing with hundreds of fighters. A grenade...

    Creationism shouldn't be taught in schools. I believe it's a backdoor way of making converts out of people. save converting other people for your interpersonal relationships. if you believe that...

    if that solitary Star Destroyer could actually fly around the planet at will inside the atmosphere, or from orbit in space, a lot of the pro-Imperial arguments would have more justification.

    then...

    the supposed victory of the Empire via untouchable terror bombings overlooks a pretty important detail. they only have TWELVE OF THEM! worse still, the TIE bombers demonstrated feats don't really...

    while I realize that some people keep mentioning missiles... missiles are not mentioned in the OP.

    so, the Star Destroyer doesn't get them.

    although, honestly, missiles in the SW universe...

    when we're talking about less than 50,000 Stormtroopers being able to subdue over hundreds of millions of people across the planet with over 2,000,000,000 people... that seems insanely optimistic. ...

    it absolutely matters that the Star Destroyer can't move.

    if the Star Destroyer is grounded those 9000+ Stormtroopers have the motor transport ability to move a mere 500 troops at a time!

    I'm not as worried about how they look. I'm more worried about how well they will ACT.

    I hope this is a pure reboot.

    ah, that's cool.... but I really, REALLY want it to come out on DVD/Bluray too. I own the whole series thus far in physical media ... and this streaming service has me a little worried that they...

    it seriously does not matter if Star Wars weapons are qualitatively superior to what Earth has to offer in 1944. if this solitary stranded Star Destroyer that can't fly chooses to fight the entire...

    sure, if ALL you guys think about is just the 'stand up and fight' aspect of this scenario... then the Star Destroyer will do great. but the problem here is that there is nothing on the planet that...

    when most Rumblers look at things like "9,700 stormtroopers" they probably just see numbers... presumably they have weapons that never run out of ammo... they just need to cool down and recharge.

    I know lots of people here are saying "The Battle favors the Imperials since they get to choose where and when to strike."
