"Captain, Kijimi is in range."
Lieutenant Milon Lenwith and Captain Chesille Sabrond[src]

The Derriphan was a Xyston-class Star Destroyer of the Final Order that was the first of the new ships to launch from Exegol. It destroyed the planet Kijimi.


"Send a ship to a world they know. Let it burn."
―Darth Sidious gives the order for Kijimi to be destroyed[src]

The Derriphan fires its axial superlaser at Kijimi.

The Derriphan was one of the 1,080 Xyston-class Star Destroyers that formed the Final Order of Darth Sidious. On the orders of Sidious, the Derriphan was the first Star Destroyer to successfully launch from Exegol where the remainder of the fleet was stationed, their numbers too expansive to all leave the planet simultaneously without being guided out by a navigational beacon.

Sidious later ordered Allegiant General Enric Pryde to choose a planet with connections with the Resistance to destroy as a show of force. The frigid world of Kijimi was chosen, and the Derriphan used its axial superlaser to obliterate the entire planet.[1] After this, the Star Destroyer fled back to Exegol to join the fleet. As the Sith fleet prepared to exit the planet, the Resistance, and eventually the Citizens' Fleet, came and destroyed all of the thousands of Sith Star Destroyers, including the Derriphan and its crew.[4]

Behind the scenes[]
