Imperial Inderdictor DB

The Imperial Interdictor had four globe-shaped gravity well projectors attached to its hull.

A gravity well projector was a powerful device affixed to an Interdictor cruiser used to pull ships out of hyperspace. As a ship could not usually enter hyperspace when within a planet's gravitational pull, the gravity well projector mimicked the effect by creating a strong artificial gravity well known as an interdiction field. Five years after the birth of the Galactic Empire, an untested Interdictor-class Star Destroyer was used to trap Wilhuff Tarkin's stolen corvette, the Carrion Spike. However, at the time the gravity well projectors were not perfected, and the Immobilizer was returned for reassessment.[1] Ten years later, the experimental Imperial Interdictor utilized four gravity wells to trap a rebel patrol. It also succeeded in capturing Ezra Bridger and Commander Jun Sato aboard the corvette Phoenix Home, but subsequent actions led to the Interdictor's destruction.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Gravity well projectors first appeared in Scavenger Hunt, a 1989 Star Wars Legends roleplaying adventure written by Brad Freeman for West End Games' Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game.[3] The technology was confirmed to be canon after it appeared in Tarkin, a 2014 novel written by James Luceno.[1]
