If we're allowed to provide multiple suggestions, here are some various lines from RotJ (organized by the character who speaks them -- the boldfaced lines are the ones I found most fitting)

Han:
- Somebody To Lead This Crazy Attack
- Good Luck, You're Gonna Need It
- It's Gonna Be Rough, Pal
- You Need All The Help You Can Get
- Let's See What This Piece Of Junk Can Do
- It'll Work, It'll Work
- I Told You It Was Gonna Work

Leia:
- Come On General, Let's Move

Lando:
- Would You Get Going, You Pirate?
- Accelerate To Attack Speed!
- You Won't Get Another Chance At This
- We've Got To Give Him More Time
- Han, Old Buddy, Don't Let Me Down
- We're On Our Way
- Here Goes Nothing
- That Was Too Close!

Mon Mothma:
- The Emperor Has Made A Critical Error
- A Vain Effort To Engage Us

Admiral Ackbar:
- All Groups Assume Attack Coordinates

Bonus unpopular option -
Threepio:
- Exciting Is Hardly The Word I Would Use
(Immune to common Sense.)

I like cards with shorter titles.

“Unprotected” or “Relatively Unprotected” comes right from the lore of the underlying card.

I think a few of us responded by now. Hopefully our thought process was clear. But now let me turn the tables on you and let design ask you guys a question.

First, a back story. When the reset first happened, then-Design Advocate Shewski came onto these boards and said that Design had cool new Senate shields. But they wanted some ideas for the underlying cards and titles. Well, low-and-behold, a young Star Wars CCG-er with Luke Jedi as his avatar was lucky enough to fire off the winning suggestions and so history was made and he forever had an impact on the game everytime those senate shields are pulled.

Flash forward...

So we have a card. A cool card. A very cool card.
It's a LS card. It hurts TTO. It hurts carbon freezing. It also impacts so many of the top DS decks right now at least a little bit. It reminds me of a Disarmed, but for starships or vehicles. I like it.

For theme reasons, we have been through a few different underlying images: Menace Fades (what better way to hurt TTO and starships than with a card that has a starship crashing into the Death Star?), Lets Keep A Little Optimism Here (Han talking about their plan for getting to the shield to take down the Death Star and it was Han that was frozen), and a few others. But I think we settled on The Time For Our Attack Has Come because it's a cool spacey picture that isn't often used.

But for the life of us, we can't think of a name.

That's where you guys come in. Suggest some names. It can be something clever, inspired by a battle tactic. A description of the battle (like "End OF A Reign"). from deep Star Wars lore, a line from Rogue One? A line from Return of the Jedi? A line from Rebels? Even one from Solo! Anything.

Remember the theme: hurts TTO and starships. Hurts vehicles and carbon freezing.

Winner (judged solely by the design team) gets the text of the card to spoil.

Technical Readout seems to be in reference to the plans for the first death star, and doesn't really connect with an anti-TTO card.

I've Taken Care Of Everything -Luke to Han in RotJ

Damage from multiple sources? Don't worry, this shield takes care of everything
rsersen wrote:
We Will Need Every Advantage
-Bail Organa to Mon Mothma, Rogue One

Works with the general theme of an underdog Rebellion, and doubles as a meta-comment on LS needing a card that helps against so many different decks and damage sources.
This would be my second choice.
