Battle of Orinda by wraithdt Battle of Orinda by wraithdt
This is one of ten pieces I did for the new Star Wars Essential Guide to Warfare. I had a blast working on it and I'm excited that I am able to contribute to the Star Wars universe.

I will be posting them in the order of sequence as it appears in the book. Hope you guys enjoy them!

The first one is a battle between the Lusankya of the New Republic Forces under the command of Wedge Antilles and the Reaper, commanded by Gilad Pellaeon of the Imperial Remnant. The two SSDs hammer each other while the wreckage of the fleet carrier Endurance goes down in flames.

When I see this I wonder how the hell the rebels got a SSD and they have enough crew to fly that sucker.

They aren't rebels, this was a battle between the Imperial Remnant and the New Republic during the Late stages of the Galactic Civil War (12 aby)

*initially confused* There are rebel ships in the distance, so not a mutiny or a rogue Moff or Grand Admiral so why are the SSDs broadsiding each- *sees Rebel Symbol*

Pwah...buh...bwah...*Finds Voice* HOW IN THE FLYING FUCK DID THE REBELS GET A SUPER STAR DESTROYER!!!???

Wanna know how I found out about it. Was playing Thrawns Revenge (a mod for Star wars empire at war forces of corruption) and wedge attacked 1 of my planets, I was expecting him in rouge squadron next thing I know a Damn Super star destroyer comes out of hyperspace and Steamrolls over my Defense fleet. My reaction was a well deserved WTF wedge got a Super star destroyer what heresy is this!!!

I'm a little hesitant to go with another mod, Republic at War forced me to uninstall the game. Twice.

What's Thrawn's Revenge got going for it?

All that advanced technology and what do they do?  Trade "Broadsides" like 17th Century Ships of the Line!

Ahem, "Battle of Orinda"?  I don't suppose the name is derived from the town next to my hometown here in California.  I just don't know of any other Orinda.  Just a curiosity for me.

I get the idea that the Star Destroyer in the background is too big. It's tower is larger than the tower of the Super Star Destroyers.

Other than that, this looks great.

As you know, SSDs most definitly dwarf regular Star Destroyers in size, so its feasible to assume that the Star Destroyer is closer to us, than the SSDs.

If they ever do another Star Wars Animated Series (the Clone Wars was good but was kind of done to death), THIS post-endor period in the SW timeline  would be an awesome place to start :D

Well the numerous Graphic Novel Series set in this period haven't ruined the Canon thus far (compared to Star Wars III which created a continuity error with Star Wars VI), in particular the 'Star Wars Legacy' Graphic Novel series (well worth a perusal)

Imperials are kicked back to ass end of the galaxy and fracture after Endor. One woman kills all the warlords, fucks up in a major campaign, resigns and transfers control of the Empire to an old man with decades of experience of naval combat and administration. Old man reunifies the Empire to some semblance of stability, even if it's a hell of a lot smaller than before. He tries to retake a planet which was a formal capital for the Empire when it lost Coruscant. The New Republic sends a fleet to retake the world. So you see this.
