The Interdictor-class Star Destroyer was an Interdictor vessel and Star Destroyer used by the Galactic Empire that was capable of emitting an interdiction field to pull passing ships out of hyperspace.It was used against the rebellion around 4 BBY, and several featured as part of the Seventh Fleet.


The Interdictor-class possessed four spherical gravity well projectors, which contained equipment to pull a number of ships out of hyperspace. Superficially it vaguely resembled an Imperial Star Destroyer.[4]


A prototype Interdictor-class was tested in the Del Zennis system[4] in 4 BBY,[5] under the command of Admiral Brom Titus. After pulling the rebel ship Liberator out of hyperspace, the crew was imprisoned. However, they escaped and sabotaged the ship, destroying it in the process of their escape.[4]

Two were later used by Grand Admiral Thrawn's Seventh Fleet during its assault on Atollon. However, the Star Destroyer under the command of Admiral Kassius Konstantine was drawn out of position by an approaching rebel Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier. The carrier deliberately collided with the Interdictor, destroying both ships, to allow Ezra Bridger's Gauntlet to escape and seek reinforcements. The other Star Destroyer was later destroyed by a Mandalorian strike team from Clan Wren, brought by Bridger.[3]
