―Darth Vader, following the destruction of Laakteen Depot[src]
The Destruction of Laakteen Depot marked the maiden voyage of the newly-constructed Star DreadnoughtExecutor, Darth Vader'sflagship. The Executor completely destroyed Laakteen Depot, an outpost the Alliance to Restore the Republic fought a year to win. The outpost's destruction effectively acted as the Executor's commencement ceremony, under Vader's orders. After word of its destruction was brought to the Rebel Base at Yavin 4, the Rebels were forced to form an alliance with the Mon Calamari.
