The Dauntless[1] was an Imperial I-class Star Destroyer that was in service of the Galactic Empire. The Star Destroyer was stationed above Jedha City in 0 BBY,[10] during the Battle on Jedha. It left soon after, however, so that the Death Star could commence a test fire of its superlaser on the city.[9]

Following its assignment to Jedha, the Star Destroyer was upgraded, with its tractor beam targeting array[9] being replaced with a communications tower. By this point, it was commanded by Moff Raythe, and carried experimental satellites crucial to Operation: Cinder. Due to this, the Dauntless participated in the Battle of Fondor, during which the Rebel Alliance attempted to hijack the vessel after it was bombarded with ion cannons.[2]
