The Imperial-class Star Destroyer, also known generally as the Imperial Star Destroyer,[2] was a type of Star Destroyer widely used by the Galactic Empire and the Imperial Remnant.

Behind the scenes[]

Star Wars Insider 125 used a fanon artwork of an Imperial-class Star Destroyer created by Ansel Hsiao, which was labeled on his site as the Imperator-class. ("Imperator" is derived from the title for the Roman Empire's head of state, which is also the origin of the French word "empereur," and by extension, the English word "emperor.")

An Imperial-class Star Destroyer can be made playable via the cheat "Imperial Entanglements" in the game Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds and the expansion Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds: Clone Campaigns.
