Harbinger was a Tector-class Star Destroyer in service to the starfleet of the Galactic Empire. Harbinger participated in the Battle of Endor, during which the Empire fought the Rebel Alliance. At one point, after the opposing navies had closed to point-blank range, the Rebel starship Millennium Falcon was briefly pursued across the ventral surface of Harbinger. Before the end of the confrontation, Harbinger was destroyed by the Rebels.
Behind the scenesEdit
A hangarless Star Destroyer was first seen in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. The 2015 short story "The Levers of Power," written by Jason Fry, mentioned the presence of a Tector-class ship called Harbinger during the Battle of Endor. On Twitter, Fry confirmed his authorial intent that the hangarless Destroyer seen in the movie was indeed Harbinger.
