This is one of ten pieces I did for the new Star Wars Essential Guide to Warfare. I had a blast working on it and I'm excited that I am able to contribute to the Star Wars universe.
I will be posting them in the order of sequence as it appears in the book. Hope you guys enjoy them!
Admiral Hirken defends the Northern Dependencies during the Fifth Alsakan Conflict. This is one of a series of clashes between the planets Coruscant and Alsakan over the leadership of the Republic that took place over the span of 140 centuries almost 17,000 years BBY(before the Battle of Yavin). Star Wars starships look rather different back in those days when shield technology was rudimentary and instead rely on large reflective armor as their main defense.

[Edit: At Client's insistence I had to replaced the original version with the official version thats on the Star Wars Galaxies website as this is the only condition in which I can post any of my artworks done for the game.]
