Two Super Star Destroyers at Endor?Edit
This and some related articles claim the Super Star Destroyer, on which Admiral Piett is stationed when the first Death Star superlaser is fired, is the Executor, naming the movie Return of the Jedi as reference. In Tom Angleberger's junior novelisation this ship is identified as the Eclipse though. I know the Executor is identified to be the ship which is destroyed later during the battle with Arvel Crynyd ramming into the bridge where Piett can be found by then. This certainly creates confusion, but do we have a source stating it to be the Executor in the first scene, creating a contradiction? KnightOfRen (talk) 12:16, October 4, 2015 (UTC)
Wimpy shielding? Edit
Why the hell is the Executor's shielding system so delicate in the new canon! Right after Ackbar orders all fire to be concentrated at the executor, instead of anything brought down by capital ship fire, all we see are a squad of a wings firing at one of the domes, and just like that, the entire bridge is unshielded. In Legends, this was explained by saying that the capital ship fire poked enough of a hole in the main shielding for the a-wings to get through and destroy the bridge shielding, but this explanation is moot in the new canon.
I really want to believe that that explanation still remains valid for disney's canon, but until it's stated outright, it's just speculation. *nerdrage*
