A group of Imperial Star Destroyers.

Star Destroyers are iconic vessels of the fictional universe of Star Wars. Star Destroyers are depicted as large dagger-shaped and extremely well-armed warships, serving in the thousands in the immense Imperial Navy and elsewhere, including in the service of the Galactic Republic, the New Republic, the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances — and possibly even in the corporate war fleets of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, though George Lucas himself uses the term generically for any large capital ship.

The designation "Star Destroyer" most often refers to the common dagger-hulled combat vessels used by the Empire in the three films of the original Star Wars trilogy. These ships are commonly referred to as Imperial-class Star Destroyers, their official designation as of a short time after the declaration of the newly formed Empire. During the earliest weeks of Imperial regime and the latter days of the Clone Wars, the class was known as the Imperator-class. When the term "Star Destroyer" is used without further qualification, it usually refers to ships of this class.

All Imperial-class variants are said to be 1,600 meters (approximately one mile) long. The crew of an Imperial-class Star Destroyer is 37,000, and these vessels also carry a full complement of 9,700 stormtroopers which brings the overall total to 46,700 personnel. In service with the New Republic the crews were reduced to about 28,000 men. This article or section contains a plot summary that is overly long. ...


There are two subtypes of Imperial-class Star Destroyers: the Mark I and Mark II designs. This distinction that seems to reflect the two distinct VFX models used in the Star Wars films; on a Mark I ship, the tractor beam array at the top of the superstructure sometimes stands up to look like a tall, X-shaped structure, while the Mark II has the same array on its back to look flat. At other times the Mark I array appears in repose, as in the Battles of Hoth and Endor. More permanent variations include differences in weaponry, and three small baffles arranged 60° apart around the main exhaust nozzles at the stern of the ISD-I. The Mark I was the only ISD type featured in A New Hope. A mixture of Mark I and Mark II vessels appear in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

Naming debate

While most Star Wars lore describes the Star Destroyer as an "Imperial-class" ship, an alternative designation Imperator-class also exists.


The Imperator-class name originates in a set of blueprints produced in 1978 attributed to Geoffrey Mandel and packaged with Lucasfilm copyright however still unofficial work according to Mandel[citation needed]. The Imperial-class designation, which seems to have originated in Star Wars Role-playing game material in the late 1980s, remains the designation used in most official material. The Imperator name first entered common use through fanon material created by Curtis Saxton, who decided to use Imperator as the name of the class on his fan site. A role-playing game (RPG, often roleplaying game) is a type of game in which the participants assume the roles of fictional characters and collaboratively create or follow stories. ... Fanon is a fact or ongoing situation related to a television program, book, movie, or video game that has been used so much by fan writers or among the fandom that it has been more or less established as having happened in the fictional world, but it has not actually...


Saxton was subsequently brought on as a technical consultant for the Incredible Cross-Sections guide for Revenge of the Sith, bringing the name into an official book by stating that "Imperator-class" was the original designation, but the class was re-dubbed Imperial after the Jedi Purge. The novel Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader has Imperator still being the name for the Empire's recently manufactured Star Destroyers, several weeks after the end of the Clone Wars. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith is the third episode of the Star Wars film series (but the sixth film to be produced), to be released on Thursday, May 19, 2005. ...


The Official Star Wars Databank Republic Attack Cruiser EU page states that the ship was designated as Imperator when it was conceived and designed and implies that by the time the ship entered service, it was already going by the name Imperial. Following traditional naval naming conventions, the proper name of the class is the second one, Imperial, which takes precedence.


Features

Main bridge

The main bridge of all known Imperial ships has the same basic layout. The outermost part features nine triangular viewports. The center contains two crewpits which are sunken into the main deck 1.7 meters, and house the main controls and computer terminals/control consoles of the ship. Between these two crewpits is the command walkway. To the right and left sides of the bridge are two alcoves containing the weapons and defense stations. Behind the bridge are the communications stations, a turbolift, and a HoloNet pod for ship-to-ship communications.


Weapons

A single Imperial Star Destroyer had sufficient firepower to overwhelm any warship deployed by enemies of the Empire and its mere presence in a sector was often enough to deter rebellion. If necessary, a Star Destroyer was capable of reducing a hostile planet to an uninhabitable ruin. Later Rebel Alliance ships, particularly Mon Calamari Cruisers, could be somewhat of a match for a Star Destroyer individually - although greatly outnumbered as a class. In the fictional Star Wars universe, the Rebel Alliance, or more formally, the Alliance to Restore the Republic, is an interstellar terrorist force formed in direct military opposition to the Galactic Empire. ... Home One- Mon Calamari Star Cruiser In the Star Wars fictional universe Mon Calamari Star Cruisers are the main cruisers in the Rebel Alliance/New Republic/Federation of Free Alliances fleet for a significant portion of the Galactic Civil War. ...


According to the ILM model, the ISD-I has batteries of four massive double-barreled turrets on either side of the main superstructure. Six are heavy turbolasers and two are heavy ion cannons. There are smaller visible gun-emplacements on the centerline and in the notches on the edge of the hull. On the ILM model for the ISD-II, eight-barreled guns in open mountings replace the larger turrets.


According to books made by West End Games, the ISD-I has an armament of 60 Taim & Bak XX-9 turbolaser batteries, 60 Borstel NK-7 ion cannons, and 10 Phylon Q7 Class III tractor beam projectors. The tractor beam projectors working in conjunction can reel in a Rebel Assault Frigate (modified Dreadnaught with increased maneuverability).

Star Destroyers also carry ground forces. Expanded Universe literature places several thousand troops, a prefabricated base for rapid subjugation of rebellious territories, 20 AT-ATs, and 30 AT-STs, several AT-PTs and AT-RTs are also included onboard. According to such sources, Imperial Star Destroyers also carried support craft and drop ships, including the Y85 Titan Dropship and the Sentinel-class Shuttle. They also had 8 Lambda-class shuttles.

Sensor globes or shield generators

Geodesic domes located on and around the bridge superstructure of Star Destroyers and related ships have been alternatively portrayed as both sensor globes and shield generators in Star Wars literature. A geodesic dome is an almost spherical structure based on a network of struts arranged on great circles (geodesics) lying approximately on the surface of a sphere. ...


It appears that these domes were originally intended to be sensor globes, as Richard Edlund, who was in charge of visual effects for Return of the Jedi, described the spheres as "radar domes" in a 1983 interview by Cinefex magazine in which he discussed the demise of the Executor. However, in the movie itself, bridge officers declared that the shields were down after one of these globes was destroyed, leading to confusion among authors of various sourcebooks on the Star Wars universe. Richard Edlund (December 6, 1940) is a multiple Academy Award- winning US special effects photographer. ... Cinefex (launched in 1980) is a quarterly professional movie special effects magazine. ... In the fictional Star Wars universe, the Super Star Destroyer Executor was the personal flagship of Darth Vader. ...


Many reference books such as The Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels and The Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology label the pair of globes on top of the bridge as "Deflector Shield Generators," while the use of the globes as shield generators is also evident in LucasArts' X-Wing and TIE Fighter computer games, where the shields of a Star Destroyer are knocked out if the two generators above the bridge are destroyed. This strategy is also used during combat against Star Destroyers in Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader for the Nintendo GameCube, where the globes are referred to as shield generators - along with the hemisphere on the ship's underside. In the MMORPG, Star Wars Galaxies, the globes are clearly labelled in the targeting system as "Shield" and "Secondary Shield". On the other hand, Inside the Worlds of Star Wars shows the bridge area of the Executor and declares the globes to be sensor globes. However, it also places backup bridge shield generators in the base of the domes as an attempt to reconcile the differing interpretations. The globes are labelled as Shield Generators in Star Wars: Empire at War the PC game. In The New Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology the revised technical readout details both types of shield generators and extensive sensor arrays on different parts of the same dome.

Areas of service

Imperial service

Imperial-class Star Destroyers had a distinguished place in the Imperial Navy, symbolizing the Empire's military might. According to official literature, the Imperial Fleet had a peak strength of "over 25,000 Star Destroyers" across the galaxy. Executor and several escorting Star Destroyers In the fictional Star Wars galaxy, the Imperial Navy, or more properly, the Imperial Starfleet, was the military arm of the Galactic Empire charged with maintaining security in Imperial space. ...


Some Star Destroyers were destroyed in the fractious warfare that followed the death of Emperor Palpatine at Endor. Others heeded the summons of Palpatine's clone, and rallied secretly in the Deep Core. A minority defected to (or were captured by) Rebels. The majority of the surrendered vessels were decommissioned, but some remained in service in the New Republic's navy (see below). Palpatine is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe. ... Map of the Star Wars galaxy released by Star Wars Insider The fictional galaxy where the setting of the Star Wars saga occurs is known simply as the Star Wars galaxy while in the canon it is referred as the Galaxy or the Known Galaxy. ... A group of Imperial Star Destroyers. ...


Imperial-class star destroyers are identified as the centerpiece of Superiority Fleets, used by local sector-level forces to keep Imperial space clear of pirates and terrorists (i.e, Rebels). Within each Superiority Fleet, six ISDs served as the command ships for component formations known as "Battle Squadrons."


ISDs have also been observed to operate more or less independently, or in pairs as guard ships on important worlds. By the time of the final peace between the remnants of the Empire and the heirs of the Rebellion, the eight remaining sector fleets of what was left of Imperial Space still centered around the Imperial-class Star Destroyer, with around a dozen such ships per Sector, but they often operated as battle lines without support from smaller vessels, and may have been refitted to carry more defensive weaponry on their own hulls, making them more capable of fending off fighter and gunship attack. In the Star Wars universe, the Imperial Remnant is a New Republic nickname for the Galactic Empire that came about following the Bastion Accords that ended the Galactic Civil War. ...


Scores of Imperial-class ships are shown as forming the vanguard of Imperial battle-fleets. At the Battle of Endor in Return of the Jedi, there were about forty Imperial-class destroyers and one Super Star Destroyer. A group of Imperial Star Destroyers. ...


In other Star Wars lore, a battlefleet charged with defending the Imperial Core Worlds had one Super Star Destroyer and fifty-seven other capital ships, while Grand Admiral Josef Grunger's fleet consisted of one Super Star Destroyer, thirty Star Destroyers, and almost 200 smaller ships, and the fleet assembled by Admiral Daala included one Super Star Destroyer, more than forty Imperial-class ships, and more than a hundred Victory-class ships. A fleet at the center of the Empire's strategies for defending the Koornacht Cluster near the Galactic Core, Black Sword Command, contained about forty Imperial-class and Victory-class Star Destroyers and three Super Star Destroyers, but one of these SSDs was simply fitting out at a shipyard within the command's jurisdiction. Grand Admiral Thrawn's "core" destroyer group numbered five of the best performing ISDs. Captain Pellaeon noted those 5 destroyers, a dozen Strike Cruisers and over 20 Carrack light cruisers with full complement of TIE's was a fleet worthy of the Empire at its height, implying a drastic reduction in fleet strength Post-Battle of Endor Admiral Daala is a fictional character in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. ...


New Republic service

The Imperial-class Star Destroyer has also appeared in the forces of other space-defense navies. A number were commissioned into the private defense-fleet of the shipyard system of Kuat where they were initially designed, while the independent monarchy that ruled the Hapes Star Cluster was able to seize some vessels through their pirate raids into Imperial space. After the fall of the Empire, Star Destroyers were most visible in the armadas of the New Republic. The refits implemented by that government often involved structural modifications, and generally required a much smaller crew. These revisions resulted in a lack of capability to deploy planetary-assault soldiers and greatly reduced endurance, as the New Republic Defense Force doctrine operated ships on relatively short patrols and deemphasized armies of occupation. Because Star Destroyers tended to be larger than most New Republic starships, they were often pressed into service as command ships or the centerpiece of battlegroups. Many of those used by the New Republic were symbolically high-profile prizes of war, such as the Accuser and Adjudicator captured at the Battle of Endor, the Avarice which defected during the Bacta War, and the Tyrant which had once been part of Darth Vader's personal fleet; renamed Emancipator, Liberator, Freedom and Rebel Dream respectively In the Star Wars Expanded Universe, the Hapes Consortium is an alliance of sixty-three worlds. ... The Bacta War (7 ABY) is a small, albeit important, fictional conflict described in Michael Stackpoles X-Wing series of Star Wars novels, most notably The Bacta War. ...


Private service

Within the Expanded Universe, one Imperial II-class Star Destroyer is in private hands, the Errant Venture (formerly the HIMS Virulence), captained by the smuggler and rogue Booster Terrik. It was captured several years after the Battle of Endor during the Bacta War against Ysanne Isard, but was in poor condition for many years owing to the great cost of maintaining such a large vessel, and it had been stripped of the vast majority of her armament: only ten turbolasers were permitted, and even those were not always functional. Years later, she received a comprehensive refit in exchange for use in a New Republic special-operations raid on an Imperial base, including a deep red paint job to replace the classic Imperial white. While Captain Terrik was not permitted to keep all of his weapons after the operation, they were reinstated during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, and, according to rumor, were augmented by a ship-killing superlaser. During the Vong invasion, the Errant Venture served as a temporary Jedi sanctuary and also as squadron flagship in the forces that rallied to defeat the Yuuzhan Vong. No other demilitarized and nominally civilian Star Destroyers in are known to exist, although in practice, some ex-Imperial ships like the pirate flagship Invidious were little different in their capabilities than the Errant Venture at some stages of her career.

Early Star Destroyers

In the original draft scripts of the movie that would become Star Wars, it can be noted that the term "Stardestroyer" (as a compound word) referred to two-man fighters flown by what would become the Galactic Empire in later versions. During the classic era of Star Wars merchandising (1976–1983), preproduction artworks and some published literature perpetuated the compound word as a reference to the large, movie versions of Imperial warships. A compound is a word (lexeme) that consists of more than one free morpheme. ...

Destroyers

Within Star Wars lore, while similar dagger-hulled warships are said to have existed for thousands of years, the earliest ships called "Star Destroyers" are the 900 m Victory-class and the 1,137 m Venator-class, deployed by the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars, the conflict which saw that once-democratic federation transformed into the autocratic Empire. Although the two were comparable in size and power, each had distinct characteristics and abilities that the other lacked. These vessels were also employed by the fledgling Empire, but the Venator-class was later phased out in favor of larger and more powerful designs.

The Victory class is a somewhat sluggish warship and even later refits never really fixed that design flaw. However, its Class One hyperdrive is twice as fast as the ones used on the succeeded Imperial class.[1]


The widespread Victory-I subclass included eighty concussion missile tubes, while the rarely produced Victory-II subclass lacked them in favour of ion cannons. The Victory-II also had faster sublight drives for better space-to-space combat and lost its atmospheric capability. All ships carried two squadrons of star-fighters.


With the rise of the Empire, the Victory was replaced in general service by the Imperial-class Star Destroyer. Many Victory-class ships were sold off (many to the Corporate Sector) or decommissioned.

One notable feature of the Victory-class is that it is one of the largest ships capable of operating effectively in the atmosphere of a planet. This gives it an advantage over its larger cousins in planetary assault scenarios, where it can be used to provide close-support for ground forces, and to intimidate the enemy. This advantage did not prevent it from being phased out and replaced by new classes as the main warship of the Empire, but it did ensure that the Victory was often assigned to invasion or policing fleets to make use of this ability. In one of the most infamous examples of this capability, then-Captain Tarkin landed his vessel on a crowd of protestors in what would later be called the Ghorman Massacre. One of their most notable battles was when two Victory-I Destroyers, Bombard and Crusader, wiped out the Eyttyrmin Batiiv pirates at Khuiumin[2]. Grand Moff Governor Wilhuff Tarkin is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe. ...


Ships of the Victory class are 900 meters long. Depictions of the engines vary: some sources show the Victory possessing three primary ion drives for sub-light propulsion; others show two. It is very similar looking to the succeeding Imperial class, though it has an Spheroid pod and two antennae on its bridge, and the Victory-I subclass has the addition of "wings" for atmospheric maneuvering. In mathematics, a spheroid is a quadric surface in three dimensions obtained by rotating an ellipse about one of its principal axes. ...


In Star Wars: Battlefront II, a ship type refered to as a Victory II-class Frigate is used as the Imperial frigate defence(s) for Imperial-class Star Destroyers. these Victory IIs are small in comparison and appear very different from their counterparts in other games (such as Empire At War, though it appears to be a combination of Victory I and II in that adaptation) they can provide formidable light laser cover fire, but rather than having the S-Foil like flaps that other Victory I and IIs have had, they have large wings which do little except increase their target area, the overall ship appears to be more of a heavily Modified Vindicator Class, the base Class of ship that the Imobilizer Interdictor was built upon.

Also known as "Republic Attack Cruisers," Venator-class Star Destroyers were the successors of the successful tradition of the Acclamator-class assault transports and the Victory-class Star Destroyers. While the Acclamator was primarily an armed troop transport and the Victory was a jack-of-all-trades, the Venator was primarily a starfighter carrier/destroyer.

The Venator-class destroyer was 1,137 meters long and carried a crew of 7,400. Its main reactor could consume up to 40,000 tons of fuel per second and had engines that could accelerate the massive vessel at almost 30,000 m/s². The ship was capable of operating within atmospheres and landing for docking as well retrieving/disembarking the ground forces.


The Venator-class carried 420 starfighters in its large hangar bays, a feature phased out of successor destroyer designs in favor of heavier weapons on the ships themselves. Standard fighter complement was 192 V-Wing starfighters, 36 ARC-170 starfighters, and 192 Eta-2 Actis Jedi Interceptors. 40 LAAT/i gunships and 24 AT-TE walkers were carried for ground operations. Combined with its fighters, the Venator's powerful engines, strong deflector shields and armament consisting of 8 heavy turbolaser turrets, 2 medium dual turbolaser cannons, 52 point-defense laser cannons, 4 heavy proton torpedo tubes, and 6 tractor beam projectors made it one of the most powerful and fearsome medium warships of the time. Venator-class ships could divert almost the entire output of their main reactor to their weapons, giving a maximum firepower of over 800 teratons. Some Venator-class ships also carried SPHA-T turbolaser walkers in their hangar bays, which were used to provide extra close-range firepower and to defend the open hangar bays, the most vulnerable part of the ships.

Confederacy of Independent Systems Star Destroyers

The cigar-shaped Separatist cruisers seen in Revenge of the Sith have been called Star Destroyers by George Lucas on the ROTS commentary track, even though no canonical sources refer to them as such. While their capabilities and power levels are comparable to Old Republic and Imperial Star Destroyers, they are depicted solely as components of the CIS starfleet.


Providence-class destroyer

See Trade Federation Cruiser

A type of ship used by the Trade Federation and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, this class was shaped like a tapered cylinder. At 1,088 meters in length it was larger than the Republic's Victory class but smaller than Star Destroyers later fielded by the Republic. The standard ships apparently had limited hangar facilities, a limitation corrected in some variants. The variants had extended hangars at the expense of engine space, but were capable of 2,500 Gs in open space and 2,000 km/h in atmosphere. It has been claimed that these craft lacked direct power feeds from the reactor to the guns. However their offensive armament included a large number of proton torpedo launchers. T.F.C.

With a known production run of 3 ships, this Providence variant saw limited use in the Clone Wars. When Viceroy Gunray commissioned this ship, he had them remove the aft reactors, fuel stores, and some of the engine components to make room for a massive hangar. The result was a significant weakening of the ship in return for an extravagant hangar facility. When General Grievous assumed command of Confederacy's armed forces, he seized this ship as his personal vessel to insult the Viceroy, who had previously and repeatedly insulted him. Two sister ships were commissioned, the Lucid Voice and Collicoid Swarm, and they were used in a disinformation campaign to keep Republic spies unable to pinpoint Grievous' exact location. T.F.C.

The modifications to this ship left it with a reduced and weakened armament.

The existence of the Tector-class was established in the Revenge of the Sith Incredible Cross-Sections fact book, and was presumed to have existed prior to that due to observations of a singular ship in Return of the Jedi. Lucas Licensing continuity checker Leland Chee confirmed that this ship was a Tector-class Star Destroyer.

Chiss Ascendancy Star Destroyers

Recently, it has been revealed that the Chiss Ascendancy, too, has begun building their own Star Destroyer designs. Some of these vessels saw action in the Swarm War against the Killik Colony.


Chiss Ascendancy-class Star Destroyer

An unnamed example of a Chiss-built Star Destroyer was sighted at Qoribu and Kr in The Joiner King. It is said to be somewhat larger than a Victory-class Star Destroyer, its lines are notably more organic than the Victory-class', and it is slightly more tapered, among other cosmetic dissimilarities.
