"EMPIRE HAS ORDERED A SYSTEMWIDE BLOCKADE TO SEIZE REBEL SPIES. INTERDICTOR CRUISERS EN ROUTE. ALL SHIPS THAT DEPART PRIOR TO IMPERIAL INSPECTION WILL BE NOTED."
―Message from R2-D2[src]

The Interdictor cruiser was a general term for a class of vessels employed by the Galactic Empire with the technology to generate a gravity well, which would prevent nearby vessels from entering hyperspace.[2]

Interdictor cruisers had the same general shape as a Star Destroyer, and roughly the same size. They featured four gravity well projectors which were employed both to pull vessels out of hyperspace and keep them from making the jump to hyperspace.[2]

Specific types of Interdictor cruisers included the CC-7700 frigate, the Detainer CC-2200 interdictor cruiser and the Immobilizer 418 cruiser.[1]

Vice Admiral Dodd Rancit had suggested that Interdictor Cruisers be used to pull Tarkin's ship, the Carrion Spike, out of hyperspace after it had been hijacked.[1]

A prototype Interdictor cruiser under Admiral Brom Titus was also used to pull a rebel ship out of hyperspace as Ezra Bridger and Commander Sato had been responding to a distress call. This cruiser was later destroyed by Captain Rex and Kanan Jarrus.[3]

Concept art

The concept of the Galactic Empire disabling vessels' hyperspace capabilities using Interdictor vessels first appeared in the Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game 1989 supplement Imperial Sourcebook and later used in Heir to the Empire, a 1991 novel by Timothy Zahn that was the first in a trilogy featuring events set several years after the conclusion of the final film of the original trilogy.[4] While this trilogy is now considered part of the franchise known as Star Wars Legends and no longer canon,[5] Interdictor cruisers were featured in novels such as Tarkin and Heir to the Jedi, which are considered part of a new continuity of canon.[6]
