    well, I was trying to be optimistic, LOL. besides, it DOES take time for them to fire up the wave motion gun.

    for Captain Smith. the 2199 reboot is pretty good. the 2202 reboot is very much...

    I dunno, a regular old Star Destroyer is kinda screwed in this scenario. their shields don't really have the feats to enable them to hold off dimension-warping-black-hole levels of blotting you out...

    LOL. well, thanks for correcting me on that. I clearly missed that part!

    ouch. this is both a little bit better and profoundly worse.

    by setting them near Beauvais on a large plain that at...

    109890

    let's suppose that the Star Destroyer is located inside of the red square near the top left-hand corner of this map. it also brings into sharp relief the difficulties that this Star...

    assuming that the Star Destroyer is stationed near Beauvais (which I arbitrarily picked based on the OP). they would be within visual range of about a half dozen full strength German flak regiments,...

    How are they shooting down an enemy they don't know is coming

    by 1944 there was a pretty large, and complex network for detecting aircraft in Western Europe. the British had one. the Germans had...

    well, I can quote myself:

    additionally, if their sensors can't pinpoint two droids in the desert effectively... all evidence from the film suggests that they simply followed the launch trajectory...

    now, if this ship had crashed in Ecuador while Peru was invading in 1941 during the Zarumilla War... they could have made a real difference.

    granted, they would have had a pretty rough time of it....

    the OP never stated that the Star Destroyer was given the luxury of scanning the entire planet, assembling detailed maps, and identifying primary target areas. now, if they want to change the...

    LOL. I actually don't need to answer any of these rhetorical off-topic questions. they have no relevance to the arguments that I've been making against Imperial forces in this scenario. it's not a...
  11. Hiromi, Darth Drizzle, The Drunkard Kid,...

    Hiromi, Darth Drizzle, The Drunkard Kid, Cthulhu_of_R'lyeh have all argued that the Star Destroyer would not be taking ANY casualties (which would imply that all of their assets are immune to WW2...

    if people noticed those maps I posted on page 7... those maps were created by hundreds of hours of labor by collecting data from multiple sources. they were assembled using aerial photographs that...

    there is also nothing to prevent humanity from attempting to replicate the Stormtrooper armor using plastics and other materials. since we already know that the armor is basically useless anyways......

    that video footage of the Battle of Takodana shows us TIE fighters that are flying at extremely low altitudes and extremely low speeds. to put this in perspective, I have seen WWI-vintage aircraft...

    do we have a response for how Imperial Star Destroyer deflector shields appear to have a limit to how much damage they can no-sell and shrug off? is there any reason to believe that if they had...

    yeah, I also noticed how low they had to fly: less than 300 ft above the ground. they also appeared to be less than several thousand feet away and flying less than 100 mph before they could open...

    you do need to realize that with less than 50,000 people, a mere 144 serviceable aircraft, 15 ground transports, and a handful of AT-ATs that this Star Destroyer is NEVER going to be completely self...

    StupidMonikor, you need to decide what method the Empire is going to use to achieve victory. they don't have enough resources to pick more than one long-term strategy.

    instead of wandering around Tatooine killing people while looking for two droids they could have just said, "hey, like we lost these droids. we need them back because they have important information...

    shutting down arguments isn't an exclusively religious activity, though. I've seen people try to shut down other people's arguments by calling them fascists, racists, homophobes, and so on. instead...

    er, what? I hope English is not your primary language because... this didn't make very much sense.

    another odd thing that springs to mind:

    if the sensors on the Star Destroyers are so fantastic... why did they need to send down search parties to find two droids? why did they set up roadblocks...

    y'know, if we're going to adhere to canonical feats based on the films and television shows... I've never seen a shuttle fire a weapon at anything. until somebody mentioned that those shuttles have...

    let's say that these guys only had to 'subdue' 2,000 cities by destroying 1000 buildings, and damaging another 2,000 cities were they merely damage 2,000 buildings in each town to say that they had...

    well, I had a pretty long work week... so, I was unable to reply earlier.

    I noticed that people are arguing that the Empire can cripple cities by "attacking power stations". this follows a...
