Also does it have the same weakness as an Executor when it’s bridge gets taken down the entire ship as well?

Eh, trashing a starship’s bridge doesn’t constitute a total kill unless it happens to hit one doozy of an obstacle before secondary control comes online or someone kills forward thrust (which is apparently what happened in ROTJ…we even see something which *might* be an engine misfire around Executor’s aft on the way down). In an open-space engagement, Ex probably would’ve reoriented itself & gone gloves-off on the Rebel fleet.

That lack of automatic thrust re-adjustment from the Executor is something that I might have expected to happen in one of the first few Clone Wars battles, but by the time of Endor, surely there’s enough institutional experience fighting around planets, moons, and space stations that KDY has corrected for it and added automatic redundancy protocols.

Guess that might depend on how quickly secondary control can be established and/or how often catastrophic bridge damage touches off random helm input. Given that we see two (admittedly Jedi) pilots safely land half a kriffin’ CIS destroyer, perhaps the ROTJ death dive was another golden BB in a day jam-packed with such contrivances. Me, I’d insist on at least one fully-crewed auxiliary CIC at all times.

The blast from the A-wings fuel tanks exploding knocked out the secondary command deck like a shaped charge missile, meaning the Executor could not regain control.

Further memo to self: given a multi-mile ship design, place fully-staffed auxiliary bridge(s) far enough from the primary deck *not* to get caught by whichever localized disaster necessitates their use. Urgh.

I’d be inclined to think that the multiple bridges seen are the equivalent of the dual bridges on ships like the Venator or Consolidator, with each having their own specific command portfolio, such as a Flag Bridge, ground forces command, starfighter command, VIP “bridge” (a mimic of a fully functional bridge to impress visiting dignitaries without letting them onto the actual bridge itself), and so on and so forth.

Sound-seeming thought. I’d still want at least one of those stations to feature a manned backup helm which cuts in the nanosecond primary control’s disrupted. Especially if your ship’s mission profile involves a lot of noodling around non-interdictor gravity wells.

Manned? The best sounding explanation for the Executor’s last dive was human error as various squabbling auxiliary helms all simultaneously laid in contradictory courses after Piett ate an A-Wing, to disastrous effect. Put a computer in charge, pleeeease.

So the galaxy’s biggest case of ‘Left! No, down! No no, down more-WAITWAITSHITALLSTOPALL-‘ ? You’d think anyone with (a) input authority and (b) half a clue about the ship’s position would be panic-mashing evasive burns bent on keeping it well clear of the moon and/or megastation. Hell, Ex’s *starting* proximity to DS2 for that scene seems dangerously close in the context of a rock-tossing-distance fleet melee.

The Galactic Empire’s defeat at Endor was mostly due to the loss of Darth Sidious’s Force Control of the fleet when he discorporated. The Sith Lord’s Battle Meditation was all that held the coordination of the Imperial Fleet. The sudden loss of his support at that critical juncture was the#1 reason for the Empire’s defeat at Endor.

It would seem this ship has a secondary command bridge pretty close to the other. I think the Assertor has a chance of surviving the destruction of the main command bridge.

I believe in legends ISDs and SSDs had in addition to the main bridge, an auxiliary bridge buried somewhere down in the hull. If the main bridge was taken out this would have survived. in the case of Executor perhaps there were gaps in communication or confusion for long enough to keep them from taking control before slamming into the DS2.

An Imp star with a Superlaser installed has the power to annihilate a small moon that’s 200 kilometers in diameter or crack a continent in half.

I looked up any reali life equivalant to the small moon, closest was Iris 7 which is 199.8 kilometers in diameter. I used SD dot nets calculator and got a yield of 25 teratons of tnt for the minimum to destroy the moon. Scaling x400 the Assertors would be 10,000 Teratons of tnt.

I believe that it would be best suited at a Long-Range assault position, like a Howitzer. And with it’s secondary and tertiary turrets, it would be able to fend off almost any attack against it.

I have done some research, and if the Empire had scrapped the DS-0, DS-1, and the DS-2, then the Empire could have survived and thrived. Fractal, please correct me if I am wrong, but if they scrapped all THREE of those Battlestations, then I believe that they could have had built over 300 of these Assertors. If you use the canonized fleet distribution system, with 1,000 Star Destroyers in each Sector Fleet, with 24 Sectors, plus 1,000 Star Destroyers as roving commands, that would give you 25,000 Star Destroyers. Now if the Empire converted all three of their Battlestations into Star Destroyers, I /think/ they /might/ have been able to, at most, double that number. If they built Assertors instead of ISDs then they could have built possibly 1,000 Assertors.

-a 70 petaton yield superlaser at the bow.
And probably thousands of other invisibly small turbolasers and AA point-defense systems.

256 Octuple Barbette HTL
100 Ball mounted Quad Ion cannons (48 in trench and 52 across the rest of the ship, idk if they’re heavy, super heavy or ultra heavy but it’s one of the three, I’d probably go with super heavy but whatever)
Idk how many other guns, way too many and too small to count.
This is my count, I’ve probably missed some but I think valoren’s count is correct.

My god, this is a magnificent design! Assertor is an apt name, as it would certainly assert itself over any opponent it encountered. I imagine its mere presence in a star system would quell almost any unrest, and give pause to even the largest enemy fleet.

If the Assertor was only used by the Imperial Remnant — I believe that this ship is in Legends, so Pellaeon’s Imperial Faction. They called themselves the Empire, but I called it the Remnant to avoid confusion. — then a more apt name would be Avenger Class.

You have angered a Grand Admiral! The Executor isn’t even the largest ship built! There is a class of Star Dreadnought that is 60 Kilometers on it’s longest axis – 41 Kilometers longer than the Executer. That ship is called the Supremacy, and it is the ONLY Mega-Class Super Star Dreadnought. But there is a ship even bigger than that. The Death Star I, with a diameter of 140 Kilometers. The Death Star II was even larger, with a massive diameter range, from 160 Kilometers up to 900 Kilometers. I believe that the DS-II was around 200 Kilometers Diameter. The Yuuzhan Vong had a “ship” called a “Worldship”, and not much is known about them, besides the fact that like all of the Yuuzhan Vong “technology” was organically-based, as in basically being lifeforms of one sort or another. Because of that fact, the Worldships” actually “grew”. The Worldships known as Koros-Strohna in Basic, where roughly 120 Kilometers in diameter at average. It is possible that they could grow to sizes larger than the DS-I, and possibly even larger than the DS-II.

What were you smoking? Worldships are large, bigger than the Supremacy, but would probably not be capable of being bigger than the DS. Legends-wise, The Executor was only the longest imperial ship in the Galaxy, the Eclipse had more tonnage. It was also the best well armed, housing more guns than the Assertor, Eclipse and Sovereign. The Supremacy on the other hand, is a whole different story. Knowing the large ass number of guns on the Resurgent, I would say it is possible that when we eventually get an official number of guns for the Supremacy, it will probably out-gun the Death Star 2. Then again, its guns are weird. THE SHOTS CURVE DOWN IN SPACE.

Noah

I have to disagree. The Supremacy may be huge, and she may have more guns than the Assertor, Eclipse, and Sovereign, but she doesn’t seem to be equipped with a superlaser. By contrast, the Assertor, Eclipse, and Sovereign were all equipped with superlasers, and I seriously doubt that there is any deflector shield that can protect against superlasers. If the Supremacy were to face off against any one of the three above dreadnoughts, it would be turned into swiss cheese. It gets even worse for the Supremacy, though, because not only do the three above dreadnoughts have superlasers, but also gravity well projectors. So the Supremacy is not only fighting against a ship with deceivingly superior weapons, it also can’t escape.
God, I love the ships in legends…

Not close. This ship is roughly 15,200 Meters in length. The DS-1 had a /diameter/ of 140,000 Meters. I think you could build 100 Assertors with just scrap from DS-1 alone. You could build at least a dozen from DS-0 alone. Note:The DS-0 was the prototype. It didn’t have shields, or any real hull. It was just the equatorial ring, the central power distribution core, with the Reactor in the very center of the core, and of course the Super Laser Array, so in summary was basically a proof-of-concept.
