Retrospective

The Rebels have good reason to fear the Empire’s Star Destroyer.  A menace throughout the galaxy, the Empire’s fleet flexed their muscles with impunity.  It was the Rebel’s misguided decision, to listen to Wedge Antilles and his hubris, to challenge a system occupied by two Star Destroyers overlooking an adjacent system defended with only one.  With a fleet of 6 fighters and a special ability, they saw an opportunity to shake up the conflict.  Unfortunately, Emperor Palpatine chose this time to lead the battle himself, according to his design.  The battle that was initially thought would be epic and written into the history books fizzled into a rout that decimated Rebel military influence for the rest of the conflict.  At the end of the war, it would be poetic irony that the Super Star Destroyer made its first and only appearance at the battle of Tatooine with a crushing bombardment that tilted the ground battle and the war into the Empire’s favor.
