Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Humberto Surian and along my  
life long friend José Andre and our passion for animation in general,  
have decided to dedicate our time – and passion – to a start up  
platform to unite information and contacts of animation professionals  
from all over the world.
We have noticed that not just internationally but also here in Brazil  
there’s been a boom on animation production and an even bigger group  
of people interested in starting in this amazing fantasy, art,  
communication segment.
To kick start this, we are contacting local and international  
professionals (such as yourself) and checking on interest and  
viability to participate on an online forum between march 28 and april 04.

We are in pre production mode and checking on valuable people that  
could contribute with knowledge to share (the topics of discussion  
will be the very first steps needed to start in the business, and  
again, to network people that share such passion).

Would you be interested and/or available to participate? Maybe you  
already have stream video material available (where we would add  
subtitles and make it available?)

This is the first move from our end;  the main goal of connecting people and building a network. However, as  
we move along, we want to make the material collected available for  
purchasing (with more details to come regarding this).

Please advise so we may continue communication.
Thank you so much in advance and kind regards from Brazil.
Humberto (surianh@animacbrazil.co) and José André (jcarrieres@animacbrazil.co)

Base Delta Zero, rips apart continents and turns the surface to glass. Either somebody really angered them, Vader found out the dark side has no cookies or yet another bio-weapons lab had a containment breach.

Yeah, if it's the first option, then the Rebels better start praying to whatever god they believe in, because it's probable that they will die. The second scenario sounds funny, just seeing Darth Vader order a Base Delta Zero on a random planet to vent his frustration. The third scenario would be vital if the bio-weapon in question was the death trooper plague, as that would warrant bombarding the planet from orbit.

It seems that the Empire see that as a viable option. When faced with an enemy stronghold, bombard the crap out of it from orbit.

If this is to scale, I think those frigates on the right would be the ships closest to the viewer... Would love to see this concept done at a lower altitude, with the Star Destroyers 'standing' on their bows to put every gun on target.

2 Executor-Class Star Dreadnoughts, 6+ Imperator-Class Star Destroyers, and multiple Nebulon-Bs. This is beyond overkill.

Looks like the Rebel Alliance Forces on that planet pissed the Empire off so much that the Empire brings in that fleet to commence Base Delta Zero on the rebels.

An excellent depiction of what the the Empire is truly capable of without the Death Star. This is in fact more terrifying than a long distance view of a planet blowing up.

If you mean the Nebulon-B frigates, they actually were built for the Empire by the same manufacturer as the Star Destroyers: Kuat Drive Yards. They also had one of the highest defection rates in the fleet, so many of them ended up in Rebel hands.

Yeah, Imperial Admiral Hurkk said at the Battle of Oovo IV, "Just once, I'd like to destroy a starship that we didn't pay for!". The Nebulon was originally designed for the Empire to defend convoys from rebel Starfighters, but most of the rebels' Nebulons were ones that were either stolen by imperial defectors who joined the Alliance or stolen outright.

With this kind of Firepower I have to ask myself, why didnt they just simply pound the Endor moon to dust rather than doing that embarrassing little ground ops?

Precision. They didn't want to also eliminate their own shield generator. Star Destroyers are meant for general destruction, and they send in TIE bombers and stormtroopers to deal with precision work like taking out a building or quelling a rebellion. There are exceptions, though. Like the time Tarkin landed his personal Star Destroyer on a group of protestors.

Tarkin didn't land a Star Destroyer on protesters, he landed his Tax Collections barge on the protesters.
