The qaz-class Star Destroyer (IPA: /kæz/) was a warship that was in use shortly after the Clone Wars. The initial test firing of the kyber crystal superweapon based off the Imperial scientist Galen Erso's research was said to be equal to the output of the vessel's batteries.
Behind the scenesEdit
The qaz-class was first mentioned in James Luceno's 2016 novel Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel. Replying on Twitter, Pablo Hidalgo explained that "Jim left the qaz-class baton for someone to pick up, should anyone want." Pronounced "kazz" in the audiobook, the designation is neither capitalized nor italicized in text.
