The command bridge of the Super Star Destroyer Executor

The bridge, otherwise known as the command deck, was a structure, either attached to the main hull via a tower or pylon, or built into the hulls of nearly all larger starships and warships in use within the galaxy. Larger and containing more stations and functionality than a small ship or starfighter's cockpit, it was the central hub of a vessel's activity, serving as its primary command-and-control station. From here, the ship's captain could assign courses for hyperspace jumps to be input by the astrogator, sublight maneuvers to be carried out by the ship's pilot or, in the case of war vessels, attack strategies and gunnery missions to be executed by the ship's gunners.

The layout of a warship's bridge will vary depending on the role of the vessel. For example, several Kuat Drive Yards-created warships' command bridges were designed with a single, wedge-shaped tower, but some ships will have a distinctive dual-bridge design if they possessed a carrier role, such as the Secutor or Venator classes.

The crash of the Executor at the Battle of Endor also demonstrated the weakness of typical external bridge design. A single A-Wing starfighter crashed into the bridge, breaching its hull and killing the command staff.
