[SoNE Freebuild] - Destroying the Destroyer

Recommended Posts

Above the planet Sullust....

SoNE - Freebuild: Destroying the Destroyer

[-Accessing personal logs…….RYN……complete-]

Only a few rotations after the fiasco with Prince Xizor on Coruscant, command assigned me to finish the mission over Sullust that had been so rudely interrupted before by the unfortunate kidnapping of Princess Leia. Already having gained access to the plans and access codes to one of the Star Destroyers  being assembled above Sullust, my small team and I were assigned to sabotage it and bring it crashing down into the surrounding shipyards and hopefully put a small wrench in the Empire’s plans for the time being. A fighter squadron would be sent to harass the other Imperial forces surrounding the ship yard so we could slip unnoticed into the hangar bay of the Star Destroyer in a stolen Imperial medical ship, under the guise of bringing wounded men into the medical bay of the much larger Destroyer.
From inside the medical frigate I could feel multiple explosions from the skirmish outside. Different alliance fighters, mostly Y-Wings and B-Wings, could be seen darting back and forth across the mostly empty expanse of space being chased by large amounts of Tie fighters. I cringed as one rebel ship exploded into a fireball and spiraled into the side of the Star Destroyer we were headed to, having been hit by a stray beam of anti aircraft fire from the Destroyers turbolasers. It seemed like an eternity to reach the open bay doors of the capital ship between the continuous fire of both factions, and the constant nagging worry that we would be shot on sight. We all collectively sighed in relief after our access codes worked and were allowed access into the hangar. Unsurprisingly, it was relatively empty due to the raging battle outside except for a few maintenance ships that looked old and out of use. Each of us pulled up a hollow map of the ship, where a red line directed us to the ship’s reactor. Command had directed us to place a few explosives inside the room and get out as fast as we could, to avoid getting caught in the explosion ourselves. Our pilot stayed with the ship while the rest of us began our journey towards the center of the ship. I hoped that most of the crew would be distracted with the ongoing battle and leave a relatively painless path to the reactor. We had made it to the reactor, after winding through the seemingly endless hallways. Suddenly I could see the shiny white armor of a stormtrooper from the reactor room adjacent to the hallway. I motioned for everyone to stop, and took it upon myself to take out the trooper alone. With his back facing me, I flipped out a small vibroblade from my hip and prepared myself to attack. The first step I took alerted him to my presence, causing him to turn around slowly.
“Who’s ther-“
His speech was cut short by the vibroblade blade that was now stuck in his neck, causing him to fall over and bleed everywhere. I motioned for the rest of the squad to join me in the room, where they could plant the explosives while I stood watch. To my horror, I could hear the blast doors open and then the clink of armor on the metal floor. I quickly pressed myself to the wall closest to the computers, hoping to hide myself from the incoming troopers. The rest of my men were already hidden deeper in the room, but unfortunately the man I had just killed was still laying in plain sight. To my great surprise however, they did not bother to look in that direction and walked straight past the body of their dead comrade. I then readied my rifle, and prepared to pick off the two of them before they could advance further down the hallway….

Here's an upload for the first time in a while! I decided to try a more cinematic type build for once but am still not a huge fan of how it turned out, I think I will stick with MOCs from now on. And school starts soon so I will hopefully have access to a laptop with photoshop on it to make things look nicer. Here's the image I based the build on:

I like the design, you did a good job going with the vibe of the inspiration. A few more pictures would be good, just to get a better overall sense. One thing to note is the ladder pieces you used as the floor grate aren't laying flat. Instead of the 1x1 rounds on the left doorway I might have used 1x1 plates just to better match the look of the right doorway (but that is personal preference). Clearly security needs to be stepped up if we are letting Rebels get to our reactors...

Thanks for your feedback man! I totally agree with what you are saying. I originally tried to use the the 1×2 tile grate instead of those ladders, but couldn't find enough of them, and also couldn't find any flat 1×1s. Making them flat would have been good too. I think a bricklink run is order haha. And a few more pictures would have revealed the ugly parts of the build haha. Let's just say there is a reason I photographed it the way I did... But it's definitely not my best work. I will take your advice and use it to crush you Imperials in the next Episode! :wink:

Ohh, a very neat build! I really like the lighting in the background, it sets the mood. I kinda wish for a few more images so I could get a better look at it!
