We saw the SD firing in ANH of course, and they were spitting fire at the Falcon frequently in ESB.  In ROTJ however, I only recall seeing some fire being exchanged when the two fleets start firing broadside at each other.

Conserving Tibanna gas!  Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes, unless Vader himself is breathing down your neck!

One brief scene of a Neb-B broadsiding a freakin small part of an ISD?

m|m: I think I'm suffering from Stockholm syndrome. Bmpman is starting to make sense and it's actually written reasonably well...

It's the Executor it's broadsiding, not just any ISD! How it survived that is of course quite a puzzle... but maybe it didn't. Also there's shots where ISD's and Mon Cals are firing at each other in the background, during the final Executor scenes.

Here is a link that discusses how the official novelization ties up some of the loose threads, such as why the Tantive IV was docked in the Profundity during the battle.  I haven't read it all yet and i am going to bed now but wanted to share while it was on my mind.

Maybe someday God will give you a little pink toaster of your own.

I read it. Their explanation doesn't actually counter any of the issues I raised with why the hell she'd run to Tatooine instead of anywhere else she could have run to. In ANH Leia's actions were simply complete desperation that could have easily gone wrong. If you add Rogue One into the mix you then have her concoct this whole plan to go to Tatooine that could have failed if a single gunner had decided that he might as well do a little target practice with an empty escape pod.
Karajorma's Freespace FAQ. It's almost like asking me yourself.

I decided to pick up a couple of Bandai's new releases for Rogue One.  This was my first crack at building a kit of this nature but it went together very easily and was a great base for weathering and detailing.
