Re: Imperial Star Destroyer fighting a GTD Orion
I'm not sure what the ISDs were getting killed by in that last video. The Orion and Aeoluses were too far away to use their main beams. Also, those ISDs need new shield models.

Edit by Singe: Better Idea.

I'd love to see the GTVA and Shivans gank the Empire.

So, why not say, GTD Orion and a GVD Hatephsut duking it out with maybe 3 ISDS and an SSD?

and Mid battle a Shivan Lucifer class superdestroyer and two Ravana or Rakshasha jump in and fire on the imperials.

Re: Imperial Star Destroyer fighting a GTD Orion
Lasers are a beam of particles all travelling in the same direction at a particular point, light is made of particals going in many directions and spread out as far as they can, try putting a laser pointer and a lamp or torch onto a wall, the laser makes a little dot, the torch goes wherever it can!! I suppose lasers are more than just photons and that shields may well be able to block them.

What's the firepower on a ISSD, i heard someone somewhere say they've got mega weapons that don't look like much (and in the star wars universe might not be) but do a whole heap of damage, far more than a BFRed. I don't know where i saw that so it may be completely wrong.

Great movie though.

Lasers are focused light.

Re: Imperial Star Destroyer fighting a GTD Orion
Lasers travel in one direction, light travels in many directions, light can be focused into a bright point that could blind you, by using mirrors to focus it all, or cutting the rest of the light off and letting a few go through. Indeed, consentrated light could probably do the same amount of damage as lasers, but that's not my point! My point is... I foget, oh wait, my point is that lasers are differant to light and shields might be able to stop them.

People don't even know that a shield could exist yet!! They can make an iron dome that can stop a whole lot of things, but it's not see through, shields are fictional, all i know is that a magnet can deflect another magnet away if you push them together properly and that might be the technology you could use to stop ferous materials.

Also, shields might stop things of high matter, light is very low matter and would go through, lasers are extremely focused and probably have a lot higher matter

Re: Imperial Star Destroyer fighting a GTD Orion
No offense, Killer Whale, but your grasp of the physics involved is clearly either hampered by a language barrier or slightly shaky.

I don't mean to flame, but are you familiar with the concepts of coherence, population inversion, or the unity of matter and energy? And what do you mean by 'high' and 'low' matter?

Re: Imperial Star Destroyer fighting a GTD Orion
Am i farmiliar with anything you just talked about? Well, pretty much no.

Matter: I probably don't know what it means, but i think of it as how densly packed atoms are, the more the higher, the less the less.

Unity? I thought light was matter, other than that i don't know what your talking about.

I only turned 13, i haven't gone to high school so these are all guesse, i hardly know that much about physics.

Re: Imperial Star Destroyer fighting a GTD Orion
Light is made of photons, not strictly matter -- rather, they're packets of energy.

Neither light nor laser contains any atoms. Photons are not atoms, and they are not part of atoms, but they do interact with them.

Matter is made of atoms.

A laser is simply a directed, focused, 'coherent' stream of light. Both a flashlight and a laser emit photons, but the photons in the laser are of the same wavelength and they move 'in lockstep', meaning that they lose far less energy as they travel.

Once you begin picking up relativity you'll begin to learn that matter is essentially frozen energy. Still, we refer to them as two distinct things.

Actually I remember some sci-fi show using this. Doctor who ??? A shield stopped hi-energy levels while low-level could go through, like air.

Sorry, that kinda scraps my whole theory, i thought photons were made of atoms.

There's the Eclipse-Class Super Star Destroyer, but this dude really deserves his name.
Although this sucker is entirely EU, it has a mini-Death Star Super Laser, which can transform a planet into a block of molten glass in a few seconds.
Should this guy show up, I'd say you just try to get the hell out of there.
Of course it could be possible to just flank him and abuse SW's anti-capship-weaponry-lackage. Probably you would still take quite a beating from torpedos, though.
And this ain't no ****. But don't quote me for that one. - Mika

Who? The orion, or the culture gsv or Trashman?  :lol:  :P

Way I see it the only one in danger would be the orion, the other two obliterate the Eclipse with sheer firepower and coolness  :cool:

Re: Imperial Star Destroyer fighting a GTD Orion
Does anyone have a model of the Imperial Super Star Destroyer ? I could need it for my next possible video . Unless I don't find any other normal SW models ...

P.S. I beat everyone and everything
