- "Order the fleet to close to a more aggressive range."
"We'll be in more danger."
"We are the only danger here."
- ―Darth Vader and Admiral Ozzel
Death Squadron was the personal Imperial armada of the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader, the Sith apprentice of Galactic Emperor Sheev Palpatine. Following the Battle of Yavin, the Death Squadron was led by the Executor-class Star Dreadnought Executor, supported by five smaller Imperial-class Star Destroyers. One of those support ships was the Devastator, which had been Vader's flagship before the Executor and had participated in the capture of Princess Leia Organa.
- "Deploy the fleet so that nothing gets off the system."
- ―Darth Vader, to Admiral Piett
Death Squadron consisted of one Executor-class Star Dreadnought as its flagship, the Executor, as well as five Imperial-class Star Destroyers, including the Avenger, the Devastator, the Tyrant, and an unidentified Imperial-class Star Destroyer. It also featured Gozanti-class cruisers.
