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.

Lusankya looks pretty good considering what Rogue Squadron did to it during the Bacta War.

Really great job!I wish I could do that!

I can´t stop to wonder, who´s in charge of the corporate identity of the rebels - he made them refit the entire SSD with red rebel lasers - truley the force is strong in this one!

 One of the coolest scenes ever done in the history of the franchise. I can practically hear the sounds of the turbolasers, and the sounds of the explosions!

And unfortunately all this did was weaken both sides so the Vong could swoop in and dominate the galaxy.

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?

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.
