I have to say you have the wrong destroyer model :P what you have here is the ISD-II from Ep5 onwards (comm relay between shield domes is smaller)

This is ALL made by you? The Star Destroyer looks like a grab from the movie!

The Star Destroyer 3D model was made by Fabio Passaro and the Corvellian Corvette was created by Alan Hart, but yes, it's my render/lighting setup and composition (incl. effects etc.). No screen caps.

The scene that finally made people realise that Science fiction/fantasy is no longer silly.

EXCELLENT! Made me feel like a seven year old again!

Thank you.

And quite true. You can say about George Lucas what you will, he certainly did reform science-fiction and set a new standard. Can't fault that in any way.

Oh, I'm sure you have. Star Wars, Episode IV - A New Hope (followed by Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back and so on). The very first there was. The opening scene right after the intro text. Just from a different angle. ;)

yes, well the "wise" part of wise ass usually doesn't apply to me. there needs to be a sarcasm font. the world would be a much better place.
