"We will take him to the Finalizer where he will yield the map's location to me."
―Kylo Ren, in reference to the captured Poe Dameron[src]

The Finalizer was a Resurgent-class Battlecruiser[2] used by the First Order approximately thirty years after the Battle of Endor.[5] The ship was under command of General Armitage Hux during Kylo Ren's assault on the planet Jakku in an attempt to obtain Luke Skywalker's hiding position from a member of the Resistance. When the Resistance fighter, Poe Dameron, was captured during the assault, the Finalizer remained in orbit during his interrogation.[4]

During Poe's escape, he and the deserting Stormtrooper, Finn, stole a TIE/sf space superiority fighter from one of the vessel's hangers and managed to disable the Finalizer's turbolasers. During their escape, the Battlecruiser was only able to seriously damage the TIE, without fully destroying it. It was later present when Starkiller Base fired on the Hosnian system, with Kylo Ren watching the blast from the ship's bridge.[4]


The Finalizer was secretly built by the First Order in their "distant orbital factories"[8] years after the Battle of Endor.[4] It was in violation of the New Republic's disarmament treaties.[6]

Poe Dameron was brought on board for interrogation, though he later escaped with FN-2187, whom he named Finn. This was also where Kylo Ren slashed equipment in anger after an officer reported the loss of BB-8.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Finalizer first appeared as an unnamed Star Destroyer in the second teaser trailer for the film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens on April 16, 2015.[9] It was first named in a Databank entry posted on on September 4.[5]
