Learning lessons from the loss of a Star Destroyer during a battle in the 23rd century, the Resurgent-class destroyer featured an off-center, better protected command bridge along with increased redundancy in command and control systems. No longer having the exposed conning towers of older vessels, bridge height was reduced significantly. In addition, an emergency bridge was located in the ship's midsection, and was not exposed but built into the existing structure of the vessel. There, standby personnel would take control of the vessel's activities if the primary bridge were to be taken out of action. Additionally, sunken data pits continued to be used following the designs from 23rd century Star Destroyers, owing to their importance in denoting command hierarchy. Simplified bridge displays with limited colors further aided bridge crews disseminate large amounts of complicated data quicker than before. Like with the old Star Destroyers before them, the Resurgent-class Star Destroyer bridge designs were deliberately modeled to reflect an emphasis on command hierarchical structures, to such an extent that the commanding officers were literally afforded a higher platform than the non-commissioned officers via sunken pits.
The star of the show was the 16 foot Star Destroyer Finalizer. It is the longest model in the Star Wars Miniland and is made out of a whopping 350,000 LEGO bricks. This model wowed both my husband and my son, who are avid Star Wars fans.

At 19 kilometers tip to tip, Executer-class destroyers were the largest and most powerful ships the Empire ever created, considered super star destroyers along with a few other classes. The Executer was the personal flagship of Darth Vader during most of the Galactic Civil War. Under Admiral Piett, it served as command ship in the Battle of Endor and trapped the Rebels between the new Death Star and the entire Imperial Fleet. It was destroyed after a bomber squadron rendered its forward shields useless and A-Wing pilot Arvel Crynyd flew into the unprotected bridge. Piett lost control and it smashed into the Death Star. 2b1af7f3a8
