    Is that altered colour X-Wing, second from right, perchance the one from Disney's horrid butcheries of the Star Wars franchise - Episodes VII and VIII, perchance?

    Just confirmed it on Wookiepedia, and it looks like it's as I feared.

    You can keep your fan-fedora intact, Patine...My SW scenario will be set in that magic era between Hoth and Endor. :)

    I'm really not up to speed with which SW film has internet mob approval. Are we supposed to hate the new ones? I rather liked the one which was about stealing the death star plans when everyone died whatever that was called. @Patine, as thorvald has said, the two T-70 X-wings are apparently from the new films, while the T-65 is from the original film.

    A few tweaks and they could pass as a late-model Z-95 Headhunter variant from one of the Rogue-Squadron Comics.....

    I wasn't telling anyone else what to hate, merely stating my own opinion. Anything else would be Fascistic! :borg:

    My own disdain for Disney/Lucasfilm is well-known, but I don't include it, here in CIV2. Let us keep it that way, Patine.

    The Grand Moff scenario will about good times and fun, the way SW should be. :)

    Here's an imp carrier, as requested. There seem to be no end of variation of this one, from various games. I settled on this model, with a fair amount of artistic license. Hope its OK.

    This one isn't on your list, I know Curt, but the TIE Defender was the top-tier craft in the Lawrence Holland TIE Fighter space sim, so...

    It's also the best fighter-bomber unit in Empire at War: Forces of Corruption.

    Truly nostalgic and amazing job, sir! I'll now be adding the Defender in as a special reward tech/unit for the player!

    Excellent, glad there's a use for it. Question about the last ship on the list. The star gallon seems to be a dinky little frigate sized ship whereas your placeholder is pretty big. Do you want a big or little version drawing?

    @erika one of my favourite SW games ever. Needs a reboot!

    My favourite was the RTS game SW: Galactic Battlegrounds, which seems to be so obscure now, that when I mention it, most people online automatically assume I mean SW: Battlefront 2. :S

    I am looking for a multipurposed Imperial giant freight/troop ship, so a larger ship would be great. :)

    Gotcha, big it is. Last question: space fortress -- did you have a particular one in mind or shall I just copy any old star wars space station pic?

    Cool!
    The space fort is really up to you, dude...:)
    Perhaps one of those battle platforms from TIE Fighter or X-Wing...?
    I leave it entirely to your discretion...:D

    You should have a Q-Wing.
