I know with the whole rebellion thing going on, the Emperor is probably gonna put a law out against it, but is it legal to own a DC-15a? There's a guy in my apartment block who's been talking to me about selling me his.
It should be okay depending on the system you live in.
After the Imperials retired the DC-15a and associated Clone Wars Era blasters, a lot were sold off on the surplus market. So long as it isn't stolen or something it should be perfectly legal to buy/own a DC-15a, as long as you don't live on a "no fun allowed" system like Naboo or Alderaan.
>tfw from Alderaan
Luckily I'm leaving in a few days, I have all my shit packed and a freighter ship is coming to pick me up.
It's a pretty place, but everyone here is like a fucking cultist.
Corellian Engineering does not make a medium freighter of any note. My XS Light Freighter does me good, especially after some upgrades. If it has enough space to hold all the shit my crew wants to bring aboard then I'm sure it will fit a stripper pole.
Looking for a light, fast, maneuverable freighter, something along the lines of a YT-1300 but newer, and with enough space that I have the ability to add several "upgrades". Anyone got any recommendations?
>a long time ago
>in a galaxy far far away
>not using glorious E-11
I find your lack of taste disturbing
Imperial Navy? No wonder they disowned you. You're playing for the wrong team. I'd jump ship while I still have the chance if I was you.
That being said, Naboo is not my favorite planet in the galaxy considering how anti-fun they can be.
The YT-2400 is a pretty good ship. Very easy to modify and low on maintenance costs, like most YT-series freighters.
That being said, the YT-1300 is still an excellent ship. It may be old but it is still just as reliable and capable as its newer counterparts. Might even be cheaper too.
You were stationed on a Tartan? Sorry to hear, I know from a few mates of mine those things are an even worse station than a CR92a.
Also, are they still using the Victory I for ship to ship combat? I hear they've fallen out of favor due to their Dreadnaught-tier speed, but I'll be damned if they don't have have top tier armament and aren't rugged as hell.
A lot of people don't know this but you can get quality DC-15s from the Galactic Marksmanship Program (GMP) for really cheap as long as you're willing to jump through a few simple hoops. Best still, you can have it delivered right to you door by ImpEx without having to pay a IFL a transfer fee.
Yeah I used to run fire control on a tartan out in
the Vergesso Asteroids. It was cramped, but I had a decent skipper.
Finally came up for promotion and now I'm in charge of a bank of concussion missile tubes. And to answer your question, no. We don't see much ship-to-ship fighting. Most of the time we're supporting operations planetside, with a little anti-piracy work now and then.
Let me guess, you're mad because you tried to do "just a little bit" of smuggling on the side and got caught.
I was on a legitimate cargo run when I was stopped for inspection. Despite following all commands, I was detained (violently) for a week without cause, had my ship torn apart, my cargo damaged, and they shot my pet mooka. They never found anything, so eventually they released me, but not until they forced me to pay impound and administrative fees, and I never received any apology or compensation.
>mfw I found some Katarn class armor for around 700 credits
>Not enough space
Individual cabins, m80s. Swap a cabin module and you can have a whole room just for the pole and her.
Now, to be fair, I don't know if you mean the XS-800 or the bantha poodoo that was the inspiration for the YT series. But in any case, I'm still laughing because my YZ has more guns stock than either of them and has a 400 m-ton rated cargo hold.
How much damage could four proton torpedoes do if launched from inside the hanger of a star destroyer? Thinking about upgrading my ship with a panic button in case I ever get tractored again.
If it's the old service model, then no. It's not legal to own one. The Empire has some really strict regulations on owning military hardware.
I heard rumors that BlasTech was going to make a civilian variant now that the E-11 is the new service blaster.
What system do you live in? If you're far enough from the core worlds there's almost no way officials would catch you buying it illegally, though.
>totally not an Imperial Customs Officer
>Huge, heavy rifle configuration that somehow manages to pack the same punch and shot capacity as any pistol on the market.
>Inaccurate as fuck.
>Sights so bad you may as well not even use them.
Fucking retards and your stormtrooper worship. Just because the empire uses a weapon doesn't mean it's actually good.
I hope those empire shits try to come knocking at jabba's door again so I can pile up those bucket headed pussies with my 84-U.
Pic related: it's me an my 84-U at the palace.
>in charge of actually knowing anything
>i work for Jabba the Hutt
Yeah just like ever other two-bit thug in the outer rim. Come back when you have something original to shitpost about
Yeah and it's so well constructed that your fucking stormturder bumbuddies are explicitly instructed never to deploy it or fire the E-11 from the shouldered position by infantry command. Blastech QUALITY strikes again.
Blastech makes plenty of high-quality weapons. Maybe if you actually knew anything about the logistics required to run a galactic empire, you'd realize why standard procurement doctrine calls for low cost and ease of production.
Maybe because the Clones were perfect genetic copies of a bounty hunter, who were taught literally nothing but how to fight. Imagine one of those fuckers pulling your speeder over to check your cargo, at least Stormtroopers have the possibility of showing some human compassion.
>Innercore shits detected.
Still buttblasted about the getting rekt by us endorians huh? How many death stars are you up to now? :^E
Why are empire drones even allowed to post on this board when your empire masters don't let you own lethal blasters anymore?
Keep telling yourself that buddy, I'm sure all those saved credits are doing wonders for all the bucketheads I bullseyed in the canyon last year, lol. Hey, maybe the empire saves enough money on their shit blastech trash this year they might be able to replace some of those ships the rebels blew up, hey? It was only like your entire capital fleet right?
>Being good at warfare
anyone here collect old vibroswords?
parents said no blasters, so im looking to start a collection
Literally obsolete millennia ago. Enjoy your limited ammunition capacity and slow projectile speed.
Literally the worst possible action you could take. Not only would the torps only damage non-essential interiors of the SD, their initial scans of your jankety budget freighter would reveal their energy signals and they'd vaporize you for possession of illegal weaponry.
Whatever you say, backwater savage :^)
>legitimate cargo run
I've been to the outer worlds, they're shitholes.
>not allowed to own blasters
You should talk to your supplier, I think someone cut your deathsticks with reactor coolant. Almost all the regs relating to weapons are on a system-by-system basis
This. There's the universal ban on former and current military hardware, but the rest is up to the Moffs. My sector is mostly Human, so we don't have too many regulations on weaponry.
My Rebel brother!
My crew just wrecked an Imperial convoy, stole 5 Bulk Freighters full of weapons and ammo, vaped 34 TIE fighters, and captured an Aclamator-class Assault Ship; all In the last 2 days.
It's good to be a Rebel.
My thought is that if I upgrade my shields and rig them to automatically activate when the panic button is pressed they'll help me survive the worst of it until I can get my engines online, at which point I'd hyper straight out of the hanger.
>Dicksucking blastrash rifles he's not even allowed to own.
>Accusing others of shilling.
Pick one, agent.
>Whatever you say, backwater savage :^)
Lel, try not to get raped and eaten by a gang of underworlders on the way to work Coruscanigger.
>Almost all the regs relating to weapons are on a system-by-system basis
Yeah and how many systems let you own a decently accurate "military style" blaster rifle capable of puncturing trooper armor? Protip: None.
>b-b-but we're safer if only stormtroopers have military grade blaster rifles.
I remember doing training exorcises on Venators back in the academy. They're great carriers, they just can't play the ship-to-ship game anymore. I'm on a Victory I now. Its honestly not that different. I work fire control so I can't speak for what it'll be like for you on comms, but it shouldn't be that big a transition.
>Yeah and how many systems let you own a decently accurate "military style" blaster rifle capable of puncturing trooper armor? Protip: None.
Just because you can't own the model used by the empire doesn't mean you can't own a civilian model that's more powerful ;)
Unless you've got capital-class shields crammed into your freighter, you wouldn't survive the detonation from proton torpedoes. Attacking an IN ship alone is literally suicide, you might as well just let yourself be boarded.
>anyone on /k/
>having the balls to join the Rebellion
Imp I class? Imp II class? Venator? Does it have a full crew and trooper complement or is it just relegated to sector patrol? Unless you were on a Dreadnought before, an SD will be a lot more crowded than most people are used to. Also it takes a while to get anywhere if the trams are on cargo duty.
Working on a Venator as a comma officer and Working on an Imperial-I or Imperial-II as a comms officer is not very different, except on a Star Destroyer there are more people in the crew so there are more people to blame any of your failures on. That's Probably why they train you on a Venator.
>Also it takes a while to get anywhere if the trams are on cargo duty
This. My first tour an an ensign was on an Imp I. Good lord is it a long walk.
What class of cruiser? Also: take it from an older guy: when (not if) a spot opens for transfer on the Executor, don't take it.
Trust me, it has its perks. The food is better, the supply officers are better, and you're more likely to get leave over a planet that's friendly to the empire. Before I came to my Victory I was on a Tartan patrolling Vergesso
>no leave on any nearby planets because of the "Potentially hostile populaces"
>had to win a barfight to get a decent pair of boots
>logistics officer on an Imp II, fresh out of the Academy and moving up fast because I'm at least competent but think I'm hot shit
>take up a transfer offer to the Guardian
>think it'll be easy, since it's just in the Coruscant Defense Fleet
I've never been so wrong in my life. I barely slept for the six months I was on that boat till I managed to transfer out to a Golan III over Corellia. Managing supplies for 280,000 is literally hell, even with all the droids they give you to help out.
Confirmed for blastech shill. Holy shit, you guys aren't even being subtle anymore.
Quick, explain to me how a rifle with a actuating module over HALF the fucking size of an E-11 can produce a more powerful bolt than the E-11.
Better yet, how about you post a timestamped picture of this fantasy blaster?
>implying its the actuator that matters, not the quality of the reactant gas
I load my DL-18 with Tibanna imported from Bespin and it produces more than enough power. Not that I'd need to worry about penetrating trooper armor in particular since I'm not rebel scum :^)
Oh that's what you think, but since you seem like you're going to have a comms position on the bridge, you're gonna have a fun time trying to get to the mess or your quarters when the shift changes.
>want a YT2400
>go to dealer
>informs me that it is now a collector's item and demand and price has skyrocketed
>some fag named dash made the model famous
>fine, then give me a fucking YT1300
>"I've got even more bad news for you son"
Well yes obviously, but my reason isn't wrong either.
I'm Technically not "in" the Rebbellion. I'm a privateer in the Rebels employ. It's a pretty great gig, I fight the good fight, my conscience is clean because I'm working for the good guys, I get paid pretty well, and I don't have to list to all the annoying rules and regulations the Alliance regulars have to follow. That being said, I'll sooner be thrown into the Sarlacc Pit than support a bunch of genocidal, slaveholding, maniacs.
Son of a bitch had it coming if you ask me. I hear Boba Fett got out. Crawled his way out of the Sarlacc pit a few days later and then Dengar picked him up.
If you want one that will probably murder you and run away, try any bar that's strapped for cash and has a few dancers, they're usually slaves.
If not, just book a shuttle to Ryloth and get one from the source.
My crew just bought 2 YT-2400s rather cheap. I don't know who you were buying from but it sounds like they ripped you off.
That being said the YT-1300 is just as good as the YT-2400, provided you can get the right upgrades which are not that hard to find and install if you know what you're doing.
I do, got a problem with that bitch?! Besides, that means the Twi'lek chicks I fuck, do so because they want to, not because they're forced to. It's a lot better that way, trust me.
I give them luxurious quarters, education, entertainment, plentiful food and beverage , and even a stipend they can use on personal items. Is some lovin' and sandwiches too much to ask for in return?
>being this buttflustered over a bunch of non-humans
Twi'leks are a slave-based culture. You're being racist if you DON'T own a Twi'lek fuckhole.
I don't think we ever actually see any evidence in the films of the empire having any extensive gun laws. All hail based palpatine!
Then find a wife or hire someone to do that for you. You don't need to own another intelligent being to get them to fuck you and clean your shit. Plus if they're an employee they won't resent you and secretly plan to kill you and escape.
To be fair, the only places we've seen in the films in imperial times have either been backwater outer rim worlds or remote areas under rebel control, I'd withhold judgment until we see a core world
What else would you expect from a bunch of backwards revolutionaries? Literally every attempt at a galactic republic has been a bureaucratic nightmare and a total failure. The Empire is the first galactic government to actually get shit done.
We also have no independent evidence that the empire is evil, until they blow up a planet that is. There's no reason stated for why the rebels were fighting the empire, they just were because they're a bunch of firebrands.
>implying they'll try to kill you if you don't treat them like garbage
FFS, why does everyone hear "slavery" and think thirty people in chains being worked to death?
Their culture isn't a slave culture any more than the Wookiees' culture is a slave culture. Slavers just really like to use them and find it easy to enslave them because of how weak their security forces are, plus the Empire just doesn't Care about them enough to try and help.
So, I've been thinking of joining the military for a few years and I kinda have my eye set on becoming a Scout Trooper, thing is, my brother-in-law, a Stormtrooper, says not to because the training's hard and they're a bunch of, and I quote, "speeder-sucking dicks". So anyone have any recommendations on how to get in and what to expect if I pass?
>gun for hire trying to talk morality
Sex and Slavery are literally two pillars of Twi'lek society. And for what it's worth, a you're no different from a slaver poaching cargo and stealing paychecks from civilian contractors.
>helmet navigation system and scanners malfunction
Yeah but saying that's justification to fight them in the first place is putting the cart before the horse, as it were. Before Alderaan got blasted, why was there a rebellion? I'm talking films only as evidence here. We're told the empire is evil because they're "The Man" and all of our POV characters are people who are anti-imperial.
>muh sentient rights
Ryloth is a tidally-locked planet with only a slim strip of habitable land along its terminus. They can barely support the population they have, much less a bunch of over-fertile twintails overpopulating the place. Rounding them up and shipping them off planet is the most efficient way of preserving their sovereignty and spreading Twi'lek culture around the galaxy.
But no, you rebs just want to install your mid-rim, cookie cutter 'democracy + religious paramilitary wizards" governance everywhere. Regional governors controlling sectors are better able to respond to their constituents.
Are the speeders really that bad? I know hitting anything on any speeder is not going to go well but I'd think that the Stormtrooper corps would train Scout Troopers well enough not to ram into everything.
Maybe you don't, but I've seen enough Imperial bullshit to last me 10 lifetimes.
They destroyed the Jedi Order, who although rather stuck in their ways and misguided at times, only existed to protect the people.
Alderaan, don't think I need to say more.
They've used Base Delta Zero on multiple inhabited planets to "pacify" them.
The subjugation of the Wookiee home world (I don't know how to spell it) and the enslavement of the Wookiees. Which they've done to other planets as well.
They restrict free speech to the point that you can be executed for speaking in opposition to them and their policies.
The Empire is scum and it will lose this war, just give it time.
Also, my 20 ex-slave crewmates beg to differ regarding slavery to being that bad.
>m-muh jedi order
>20 ex-slave crewmates
>plenty of claims, no sources given
How's your holonet signal on the terminal in your mother's basement? Does all the duracrete mess with it at all?
While I think the Rebellion looks at the old Republic and Jedi order through rose-tinted lenses, I mostly agree with your sentiments. Which is refreshing; these threads are usually Empire circlejerks. The Empire has its good points, but it has plenty of bad to go along with it.
>people blaming the helmet
I'm so fucking sick of hearing this. I guarantee that most dead speederpilots had their nav systems turned off to avoid 'bad information'. There's no fucking way your judgement is better than the Empire's best HUD and orbital guidance network.
>b-but I think I'm slightly force-sensitive
Then you better not fucking enlist or else that cape-wearing faggot is going to either choke you out or pop your brain out and 'reassign' it to some disgusting robot prototype that leaves your precious force-sensitive lobes exposed to anyone who can aim a blaster.
>inb4 what's the last thing to go through a scout troopers' mind when he crashed / his handlebars
You mean the cult that would abduct infants and raise them as child soldiers while indoctrinating them to shut off emotion and social connections outside of said cult?
Their princess was literally committing treason against the Empire and her father was a founding member of the Rebellion
The ones that aided Jedi traitors who had attempted to overthrow the Emperor?

I wish once, for shits and grins, they would let us use raider tribes for target practice. Concussion missiles do some pretty wicked shit on soft targets. But we can't, its "bad for PR"
>living next down the hall from a retired/runaway clone
>he keeps threatening to destroy my service droid whenever it passes by his door
I thought these fuckers were supposed to all die like ten years ago. His stories about Muunilist are so fucking boring.
If they want to go live off-world they can choose to go themselves or go colonize a planet.
There are a Lot of uninhabited planets in the galaxy capable of sustaining life in the Galaxy. And what about the families that are forcibly split up by enslavement. I also have no problem with the idea of regional governors, I do however have a problem with regional govenors who act like tyrants and got their position from how well they sucked Palpatine's old wrinkly dick rather than because the people choose him.
I do. In fact, the captain of one of my outfit's Dreadnaught-class heavy cruisers is a lady and is one of the best damn starship captains this side of the Rishi Maze. Also, I'm a Mandalorian and we believe that someone's worth is not determined by their gender or species, but how good of a warrior they are.
My contract with the Allaince limits us to attacking military targets and we get penalized for any civilian casualties that we are responsible for. Besides, even if you're a merc like me there is nothing wrong with having ethical standards.
>Also, I'm a Mandalorian
That explains so much
The ones that stayed in Imperial service after the Clone Wars were given a drug that stopped the accelerated aging and made them age normally.
The 501st is still made up largely of Jango Fett clones.
All of you are doing it wrong.
I got a "contact" near Ryloth, deals in moving cargo without a paper trail. Always needs folk to crew haulers and work the docks, but cant exactly have everything on the books. I supply him with Twi'leks to work for him, he throws me some credits and let's me pick through the latest shipment of contraband. Of course the credits don't cover my operating costs, so where do I get the funding for these adventures?
Core world yuppies will throw credits at anything if they think it's a worthy cause, and who doesn't want to help the poor starving children of Ryloth escape servitude? Charitable donations from concerned Imperials pay for my fuel, ship maintenence, landing fees, and even a comfortable salary for myself, while still having plenty to set up everyone I get off Ryloth with temporary lodging, some clothes, food, and a job. And that's not counting nonmonetary donations. All the time I get shit from droids to used speeders to the occasional beat up freighter.
So basically the Imperials are paying me to fuck around in a luxury ship delivering undocumented workers to the rebels while I fuck Twi'leks and stack up piles of money.
God I love this star system.
SORRY, I CAN'T HEAR YOU OVER THE SOUND OF THE CANON SHREDDER

We do, although we are not as numerous as we used to be.
Plus I wasn't born into Mando culture I was adopted into it after the Empire murderd my parents. Turns out Mandos are really big on adoption, go figure.

Have fun fighting anyone with the slightest plasteel armor or droids or moderately reinforced pilots' suit.
There's always the one rebelfag white-knighting tail-heads like he's a fucking jedi or something.
Do they even realize how hard it would be to get a lekku wankjob from a free Twi'lek?
DC-15as are shit, they jam all the time and the laser they admit is not much more powerful than a Blastech 100/222. What you want is the glorious Tusken Cycler Rifle. It'll never jam, they're only 160 credits and they're better than any rifle ever made.
Im the dude who posted about the sale, I didnt know about GOG, thanks for the heads up.
In other news I bought a Gamecube again and bought the Resident Evil remake, plus zero and eternal darkness. Shits so cash.
>there are rebels itt who don't support slavery
GoG has a sale too. AND GoG has Rogue Squadron.
I just wanna point out, the GoG verson of the XWing and Tie Fighter games are better, they've been optimized for newer systems, where as the Steam versions might be unstable on newer OSs.
>find out entire squadron is getting transferred under Vaders command
>Captain said anyone willing to transfer additional TIE/INs will receive a recommendation with the Emperor, which is clearly bullshit but thirsty Admirals will fall for it as usual
no god please no. I don't pointlessly want to cut my short life even shorter. Or worse, get constantly micromanaged by the walking AC unit.
