- "Whole planets may be laid waste and fleets of wreckage float lifelessly in the void; still-warm fragments of Death Star may tumble alongside the cold splinters of the Eibon Scimitar."
- ―Rivoche Tarkin
The Eibon Scimitar was a capital ship that served as the flagship of Xim the Despot during the Xim Wars. Its keel was laid down in the Barancar shipyards, and it was destroyed during the First Battle of Vontor. The ship was replaced by the Deathknell, which met a similar fate at the Third Battle of Vontor. Its cold splinters continued to drift through space long after the battle ended.
Popularly portrayed as an enormous ship, images of the Eibon Scimitar later inspired the Galactic Republic's Invincible-class Dreadnaught Heavy Cruiser. Despite its depiction as a gargantuan vessel, military historians agreed that the Eibon Scimitar would qualify as a heavy cruiser under the Anaxes War College System.
