- "N-O-Seven-One-Eight, you're to report to the Star Destroyer Eliminator immediately, to Lieutenant Commander Cherik. N-Y-One-One-Two, same orders."
- ―An Imperial commander
The Eliminator was a Star Destroyer in service of the Imperial Navy. In 0 ABY, around one week after the Battle of Yavin, in which the Galactic Empire's Death Star battle station was destroyed, the Eliminator was one of around a dozen Star Destroyers that formed the new core of the Imperial Starfleet.
After their transport had docked with the Imperial I-class Star Destroyer Devastator, which was also in the fleet, the Imperial personnel designated NO718 and NY112 were ordered by their commander to report to Lieutenant Commander Cherik on the Eliminator.
