The Venator-class Star Destroyer, also known as a Republic attack cruiser or Jedi Cruiser, was a dagger-shaped capital ship used by the Galactic Republic for ship-to-ship combat against the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars.[3] Having eclipsed the Republic's diplomatic frigate,[3] the attack cruiser faced the Separatist dreadnoughts in some of the most well-known battles of the Clone Wars, including those of Sullust, Christophsis and Coruscant.[6]

Early in the war, the Separatists created the Malevolence, a heavy cruiser that could cripple the electronic and power systems of a Republic attack cruiser thanks to its powerful ion blast.[7] The design of the Republic attack cruiser ultimately evolved into the similarly wedge-shaped Imperial Star Destroyer, the signature battleship of the Galactic Empire.[8]
