Star Wars: True Blue: A Star Wars Journey, Part 1
“Concentrate all your fire on that super star destroyer!”
Admiral Ackbar’s order to the Fleet reverberated on his comm as Tann maneuvered his A-Wing into flight formation, serving as cover for Green Lead and Green Four as they dove towards the behemoth that was the Executor.
“Flight Two, Green Five,” he spoke, juking swiftly to avoid an incoming turbolaser shot. “Maintain cover for their attack run at high speed, see if we can draw the batteries away from ‘em.” He watched them plunge single-file towards the bridge, laser cannon fire pouring into the last remaining deflector dome. It erupted into a gaseous explosion seconds later, and the bridge’s shield envelope collapsed.
Suddenly, forward turbolaser volleys poured out from the bow of the massive vessel, trying to hit anything and everything on their fire control computers.
“Ah, that got ‘em spooked!” Tann remarked. “Haul ass out of here and regroup for anot

Literature
Worlds of Eye for an Eye
Unified Earth: The homeworld of humanity has undergone several drastic changes that have transformed it permanently into the 22nd century, from global warming to multinational conflict, near-societal collapse to radical reformation. After decades of warfare, the Unified Nations Government emerged from the cinders of the previous world order, controlled by powers who sought to redefine human norms and manage the population through calculated, authoritarian means. A hierarchy emerged from the theories of identity politics and the progressive stack, where resources and the priorities of allocating them focused on primarily alleviating prior transgressions (whether real or perceived) caused during previous eras. As a result, it has had some positive effect, namely economically-revitalizing regions of the planet that were previously embroiled in poverty, famine, disease, and civil war, such as sub-Saharan Africa and Southwest Asia. However, the inefficiencies of this system, and even the in

Now that I gotten the remaining replies out to folks who've addressed counterpoints to my previous entry, here's what I intend to do: after some reflection over the past couple of days, and an epiphany this morning, I've decided that I'm going to remove that journal entry, along with my previous ones, regarding the latest controversies between Lucasfilm and the fan-base. For the folks that commented, I find no fault with you or your discourse. I plan to leave them up a while longer for those that wish to reply to more recent comments, probably for another day or two, before the original journal entries are removed permanently. 

I've come to realize that even though I believed I had good intentions in highlighting what was happening with Lucasfilm staff and creators and the fans on social media, I've ended up feeding more into the negativity that comes with it. And that was never my intention for my dA page for Star Wars content; what I've always wanted to do was simply share my fan-works and commissioned artwork with other people, two things I've invested a great amount of both time and money in. And all of that was intended to entertain my watchers, provide content for Star Wars d6 RPG fans and readers, and give them more of a visual slice of that Galaxy Far, Far Away.

My personal beliefs got in the way of that, and I sincerely apologize for it. I don't care if you prefer EU over Disney Canon (as I tend to), or if you prefer Disney Canon over EU, or if you're a fan of both. There's a good chance that if you watch this page, you're a Star Wars fan, and that's who I try to pander to. Time to regain my focus and put that energy back into content you'll enjoy!

List of Lucasfilm staff, creators, and actors that have insulted and denigrated the fans:
Rian Johnson
Kathleen Kennedy
Chuck Wendig
Jon Kasden
Pablo Hidalgo
Mark Hamill
Paul S. Kemp
John Boyega

This is in chronological order, as the social media meltdowns ensue. The list is probably longer, but these are the ones I know about. These folks have called the fans "sexists," "racists," "fascists," "neckbeards," "incels," "alt-right," "not real fans," "white male manbabies," "basement dwellers," "nerds," etc. Whatever is going on behind the scenes over there, one thing is certain: 

Lucasfilm is sick right now, and this is a symptom of the mismanagement and unprofessionalism that has infected the company. The Last Jedi made a little more than half of the $2 billion that its predecessor, The Force Awakens, earned at the box office. Solo LOST $80 million (or what they've admitted to anyway). And they've accepted zero responsibility for their own missteps, and have taken their vitriol to Twitter, Facebook, and the like and projected it towards the fans. 

I actually enjoyed Solo and had hoped that it would set Lucasfilm creative back on course. But as of the past week or so, I'm strongly considering sitting it out for Episode IX. I've been a fan of Star Wars since I was eight years old; 28 years of life (almost three decades) I've been an avid movie and television watcher, reader, gamer, listener, and yes, fan-fiction and gaming prose writer, of the Star Wars franchise. And now, the people steering that ship are telling me that my views don't matter, my money doesn't matter, and ultimately, my fandom doesn't matter. That unless I "get woke," I'm not a "real fan."

Well, maybe that's true. I'm not a fan of "Woke: A Disney Star Wars Franchise." I don't think the "Force is Female," because an energy field that binds all living things shouldn't have a goddamn gender assigned to it. I don't believe "Lando is pansexual," because it was never established in the original character to begin with. I do think the Canto Bight scene was intended to brow-beat the audience with ham-fisted activism and class warfare to reflect "the current year." And I do believe they purposely degraded both of the characters of Poe Dameron and Finn to pander to "WAMEN POWER!" 

They brought this nonsense into it, and they are reaping what they've sewn. And if they continue down the path of blaming the fans, it might lead to this Star Wars fan pulling the chocks on future installments. I vote with my wallet.

“Concentrate all your fire on that super star destroyer!”

Admiral Ackbar’s order to the Fleet reverberated on his comm as Tann maneuvered his A-Wing into flight formation, serving as cover for Green Lead and Green Four as they dove towards the behemoth that was the Executor.

“Flight Two, Green Five,” he spoke, juking swiftly to avoid an incoming turbolaser shot. “Maintain cover for their attack run at high speed, see if we can draw the batteries away from ‘em.” He watched them plunge single-file towards the bridge, laser cannon fire pouring into the last remaining deflector dome. It erupted into a gaseous explosion seconds later, and the bridge’s shield envelope collapsed.

Suddenly, forward turbolaser volleys poured out from the bow of the massive vessel, trying to hit anything and everything on their fire control computers.

“Ah, that got ‘em spooked!” Tann remarked. “Haul ass out of here and regroup for another run!” As those words left his lips, he caught Arvel’s A-Wing take a glancing strike on its left side, putting the craft into a near-uncontrollable spin.

Come on, Arvel! Get out of there! We can follow up and take that monster down.

He underestimated his Wing Leader’s situation… and sheer resolve, as he watched the fellow A-Wing pilot regain control of his stricken fighter, heading straight towards the command bridge.

He’s actually going to do it?!

Green Leader’s A-Wing pierced into the Executor’s bridge with the force of a high-explosive battering ram, cutting through transparisteel like a vibroknife through nerf butter, with explosions racking the entire bridge. The entire vessel listed downward, having lost heading control and captured by the Second Death Star’s artificial gravity well.

Tann closed his eyes just briefly, before witnessing the Executor crash bow first into the battlestation in the largest column of plasma and fire that he had ever personally-witnessed.

We won’t forget you, old buddy. May the Force…

---

“… be with you.”

<Talon Base, Validaan, the Colonies region; two years after Endor>

A mutter influenced by the past, and a sip of watered-down Corellian Whiskey left a bittersweet taste on Tann’s tongue as he set the glass down on the faded wood of the hooch’s bar top.

Today was the second anniversary of Endor, now known across the galaxy as Liberation Day. In reality however, much of it remained in Imperial control, particularly the Core where Palpatine’s hanger-on’s resided in the form of the Inner Circle, or the Expansion Region and the Mid-Rim where warlords like Zsinj reigned with fleets far larger than their sense of unity. The Emperor died and left more than a dozen smaller ones in his wake.

Labels didn’t really matter. Star destroyers were star destroyers; “eyeballs” were “eyeballs;” stormies were stormies. Even if they all fought for different masters.

Tann gazed into his diminishing glass of whiskey, remembered all of those pilots he’d flown with during the Alliance years. Many of them were now legends, with medals and maneuvers named after them, most of them posthumously. Those that survived now commanded units of their own or were part of elite squadrons now tasked with special operations missions.

Speaking of his own unit, it had been deactivated a week ago, with its pilots reassigned to new ones. A sign of turbulent times ahead. He had waited for transfer orders to come down the routing chain, but none had arrived as of yet.

Truth be told, Tann was getting wary of it all. He was ready to return to his homeworld and begin a new life for himself. Or rather, make up for the one he had been absent from.

He raised his glass for another sip, maybe for a longer one…

“Major? Major Danzel?”

Maybe not. He set the glass back down.

“Over here,” he said, not turning his head to look. He heard some footsteps, and after a brief moment, a young blonde flight officer peered over his right shoulder.

“Sir, I have orders from… h-have, have you been drinking on duty?!”

“I don’t see a fighter squadron anywhere around here,” Tann replied, taking a small sip to reinforce his point. “Do you?”

She paused briefly, taken back a bit by his behavior. But she regained her composure and presented a datapad.

“Transfer orders, sir! You have received a new assignment and have been requested to depart on the next available outgoing transport.” Tann didn’t reply, but he set his glass back down and received the datapad from her. He scrolled down the screen… before stopping, shifting his head to meet the gaze of her soft brown eyes.

“Azure Squadron? That unit doesn’t exist.”

“As of… 0600 CST, it does now, sir,” she explained.  “Your orders are to relocate to the destination, help stand-up the new squadron and be ready to conduct combat operations ASAP.”

Tanthiel… now where have I heard of that planet before?  

Then it dawned on him. It was from a star system of the same name in the Colonies region, just a hyperjump away from the main Perlemian Trade Route. This new unit was going to be part of the push into the Imperial Core.

Tann was going to be training a bunch of greenies, trying to keep the old heads from the Alliance days from hanging them, try to keep a squadron of finicky A-Wings from breaking down at the last second prior to launch, and try to keep these beings from getting killed before they have a real chance to do some damage. He was going right back into the thick of it all.

He stifled a sigh and stood up from the barstool. He passed back the datapad to the flight officer and gave her a knowing smile.

“While I’m packing… tell them “thanks” for me.” He started for the door, intending to return to his quarters.

“Thanks?” she asked, puzzled. “Thanks for what?”

Tann turned his head back to respond.

“When you’re older, and a little wiser, you’ll understand.”

Yeah

:D you see I had an idea for a FanFiction that was paying homeage legends with some canon to keep the new canon fans happy but also supposed to win them over

But manly to the 2003 clone wars creation of genndy tartakovsky though some art styles of forces of destiny and other art styles will exist

You may know I crossed it over with sym bionic Titan and rebellion uses the galalunian tech to build the machines they found from earth with old attempts to contact life and species of the unknown regions and used some from

Pacific rim
Gundam
Power rangers
Real steel
Transformers
War of the worlds ( that’s the idea of the separatist holdouts before the rebel separatist forever reunited treaty)
Halo
Mass effect
Titan fall
Zoids


So they used this to make giant mechs called titans

And the other giant mechanical beasts based off earth animals called some are droids, airspeeders, tanks, submersibles, and walkers called mechimals

Ithorian SkyYards Tree Grove-class herd ship by Shoguneagle

It's essentially an Ithorian herd ship, which carries a small piece of the Mother Jungle from planet Ithor onboard. Might be what you're looking for, although they don't have really anything to use as weapons.
