The LEGO Super Star Destroyer set has a bad rap as a big dull gray set. I decided to change that…
After the death of the Emperor Palpatine and Lord Vader, the Empire made a last ditch attempt to thwart their enemies by rushing to complete their fleet of Venator class super star destroyers. However, by the time these vessels could be deployed, the Rebel Alliance had already developed its own super weapon, designation KR-KN.
The Legend of the KR-KN: A rare species of Space Kraken, known to exist only in the vast Dreighton Nebula, were sought out using the the Jedi’s most powerful clairvoyants, and brought under the Alliance’s control by flying super-computers directly into their brains. Many brave Ewok pilots were unwillingly sacrificed to accomplish this difficult task. Far from being cruel to the Kraken, this arrangement was completely symbiotic, as the creatures had evolved to prey on starships, their diet being composed entirely of metals such as quadanium steel.
Originally debuted at Emerald City Comicon 2013, and now permanently on display at the head offices of Tableau Software in Seattle. Read the story behind this build here.
Via Flickr: STNG as it should have been… Emperor Picard The Magnificent upon his throne, surrounded by his loyal subjects, Princess Troi-Leia (slave girl and fortune teller), Sergeant Buff (Klingon barbarian bodyguard and Sushi chef), Bone Crusher (witch doctor and dungeon mistress), and the fool.
Kinda makes me wish STNG had done a “Mirror Universe” episode!
Built for the SeaLUG LEGO display at Emerald City Comicon (first weekend of March at the Seattle convention center).
