The Annihilator was a Star Destroyer in the Imperial Navy's fleet defending the second Death Star, an Imperial battle station situated over the moon of Endor.[1]

In 4 ABY,[2] the station and its fleet were attacked by the Rebel Alliance, who hoped to destroy the Death Star. Shortly after the Death Star's shield generator on Endor was destroyed, which opened up the station for attack from the rebels, Imperial Commander Ciena Ree flew her TIE/IN interceptor around the Annihilator's bridge area, aware that a rebel pilot could crash their ship into it.[1]

Ree then witnessed the rebels destroy the Imperial flagship Executor, leading to all starfighter forces being ordered to retreat, forcing Ree to swoop away from the Annihilator.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Annihilator first appeared in the Star Wars canon in Lost Stars, a 2015 young-adult novel by Claudia Gray.[1] In the Star Wars Legends continuity, it had first appeared in the 1995 article "Stand and Deliver," written by John J. Richardson III, from Star Wars Adventure Journal 5.[3]
