What is it about Star Destroyers that makes them so cool? You see one and you just want to see it fuck things up.
Star destroyers are pretty underrated in terms of design and aesthetic tbqh
You realize they fight using sensors and targeting computers and not directly visually, right?

No one is using their eyes to detect ships in space. Heat signatures are a dead giveaway in space where nothing radiates heat naturally other than stars and planets. Also light from a star would light up even a pitch black object like a Christmas tree.
I got to have dinner with one of the guys who designed the star destroyer once. He talked a lot about how the visual design for these and the borg cubes and some other shit relies on having a lot of squareish ins and outs to look imposing but industrial, it radiates "power." I don't remember the term he used for it unfortunately, the boxy in and out complex roughness of the surface.
