    I don't think Imperial-class Star Destroyers are atmosphere-capable. Good apart from that though. :)

    not too bad at all (I always thought those San Franciscans were a bit too imperial) - they hid the manufaturing plant well..... :S

    Thank you Admiral Akbar. Very funny.:D

    I wish they would have done some "Star Wars Kid" type editing in that piece. Like that shot with the AT-AT's on the beach and the joggers running, frickin laser beams lighting up the beach behind them. I'd have wet my pants.

    The effects were cool, just wish they had taken it to another level.

    Not like I could accomplish even close to what they've produced, so I enjoyed it none the less.:)

    I disagree, I rather like the subtle 'it's just there' feel of some of the shots.

    They can't, and any TIE fighter's ION drive will mess with Imperial comm equipment if too low to the ground.

    I had no idea there were so many Trekkies on MR!

    PS Good composition... The Tie fighters looked a wee bit unfinished (and I was amazed that guy on the beach was just throwing a stick for his dog rather than crapping his pants) - but overall it was well done...

    Trekkies implies Star Trek not Star Wars --- I think those it's just considered "star wars geek"

    anyway ... this looks pretty sweet.

    Did you make each element individually or some mad rotoscopy skills?

    My bad. They're kind of all the same, though, aren't they?

    Too awesome. I also enjoy the "it's just there" mentality where nobody really seems to notice. Very well done.

    I find it hard to believe the 2nd unfinished death star can actually propel itself?

    Agreed. He should have used shots of the Acclamator class transports.

    I had no idea the Kuat Drive Yards were in California.
