A Star Destroyer is a huge, triangular-shaped warship at the forefront of the Imperial Navy, the Star Destroyer was actually first designed and developed during the last years of the Old Republic. There are four main classes of Star Destroyer: the original Victory-class ships, developed by Rendili StarDrive for the Old Republic; their successor, the Imperial-I and Imperial-II class ships, developed by Kuat Drive Yards for the Empire; the huge Super-I class and Super-II class command ships; and the largest class, the Eclipse-class Star Destroyers. Like all capital ships, they were given names based on phrases and adjectives which described their strength and capabilities, such as Devastator and Agonizer. Luke Skywalker believed that Emperor Palpatine chose names which would also serve as a subconscious reminder to their crews that the ships were essentially the methods by which he corrupted people's souls.

When the Imperial-class project first began, there were many budget arguments over whether it would be feasible for the Empire to construct and purchase these expensive warships. Now, we can only wonder why anyone would argue against employing Star Destroyers. They are invaluable in maintaining order and policing a galaxy. A single Star Destroyer is sufficient for subduing most planets, and with its armament, ground assault force, and six squadrons of TIEs, the Star Destroyer has been nearly unchallenged for a long while. It would take more than one MC80 to defeat a single Imperial Star Destroyer. However, recent advances in New Republic technology have yielded starships more pwerful than the Imperial Star Destroyer, and even improved models of the Star Destroyer.
