"Oh, my. I could've sworn the hangar was down this hallway. Oh, why do they build these infernal ships so absurdly large?"
―C3PO[src]

The Imperial-class Star Destroyer (ISD) known generally as the Imperial Star Destroyer, was a product line of massive dagger-shaped capital ships of the Imperial Navy and later the Navy of the First Order. It consisted of two variants, the Imperial I-class Star Destroyer and the Imperial II-class Star Destroyer.

HistoryEdit

The Imperial Star Destroyer replaced the smaller Venator-class used by the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars and was generally the Empire's star cruiser of choice.[3]

At the height of its power, the Galactic Empire operated over 25,000 of these ships.[4] The distinctive profile of the Imperial-class instilled fear into the soldiers of rebelling factions, and the name of a Star Destroyer could be preceded by the ship prefix ISD (for Imperial Star Destroyer). In a report to an admiral, Senior Commander Alecia Beck referred to the ISD Vehement.[5]

Roughly thirty years after the Battle of Endor, the new Resurgent-class Battlecruiser would be constructed to replace the aging Imperial-class by the Empire's first successor state, the First Order, and would borrow design philosophies from the highly respected ship.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

While working on the Imperial-class Star Destroyers of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, model maker John Knoll worked from Star Wars: Incredible Cross-Sections to make sure that what the audience would see inside the ship matches what was known about Star Destroyers.[6]
