    You alive wes?

    Are you referring to the numerical strength of star destroyers in the empire? if so, then, what do you mean whats up with it? Too few? Too many? relatively too few compared to the amount @ the height of the Empire? help is out here.

    I guess he means the battle at the end of VotF where about 110 NR ships were outgunned by 3 SDs.

    I thought he meant that VotF shows all the ISDs are cloaked.

    I like that better than 3 X-wings outgunning a star destroyer.

    Hey Chissdude- there not all cloaked, just the ones at are sent on the mission by Disra. The Errant Venture and the Chimera
    are both uncloaked in VotF, as well as possibly others, I don't remember.

    As to the original question, how is anyone suppost to answer anything so vague?

    I'd actually be interested if anybody has a clue what the naval strength of the Imperial Remnant is during the HoT. It's one of those things that always puzzled me, (i.e., number of Imp SD's, Vic SD's, etc.) - my suspicions are that there is nothing onpoint for these numbers.

    Maybe I should check the New Jedi Order Sourcebook for some insights. Then again, it probably doesn't have any. Hmmm.

    I dunno, I guess I could flip through a few different books for ideas.

    Ana, PotP says 200 SDs, Vics and ISDs I would assume.

    Chissdude, a little more help please!!! I don't know what "PotP" means? At this point, I'm guessing "Specter of the Past" even though you have a "P" instead of an "S." Am I wrong???

    (Thanks!!!)

    Ana, it is Spectre of the Past. I think its one of the chapters with Pellaeon, either when they are testing the cloak/predictor system, or when he is talkign to the other moffs about the treaty. He says their force had been reduced to just 200 star destroyers. Theres no info on what type they are.

    Gandolf the Grey. Whoa wait! The Flacon is in a legue of it's own. I would be dissapointed if three star destroyers would even scratch the Falcon.

    Thanks again, Chissdude & Darth Thrawn!

    I found the sites in Specter of the Past. Plus, I found information on sector navies in the Imperial Sourcebook. Both sources reconcile well, (i.e., 24 SD's per sector in IMP SB; 8 sectors in Imp Remnant in SotP).

    Looks like Zahn and his Bothan network were right on the money!!!

    I was talkng about at the end of VOTF when 110 ships were outgunned by 3 SDs.

    Then in SOTP one SD was outgunning an entire Starfighter base with 12 wings of fighter, 6 A-Wings and 6 X-Wings.

    Zahn made them seem much more powerful from what we've seen in other books.
