The Star of Empire was a luxury liner owned by Haj Shipping Lines.


The Star of Empire was an oval starship, nearly two kilometers long, and painted bright blue. It had the capacity to carry five thousand passengers (including the personal ships of the richer ones) and was staffed by a large crew.

The Star of Empire had forty staterooms on either side of the hull, each having a large portal viewing into open space. Other places of interest included an observation deck, a low-paying passenger area called the "Starlight Deck," a casino (the Corellia Room), an expensive restaurant (the Nebula Room), and a small but extensive library.


In 4 BBY, prior to possessing the Millenium Falcon, Lando Calrissian was travelling through the galaxy on the Star of Empire and other similar pleasure liners.[1]

As of 1 BBY, the Star was captained by one of the many granddaughters of Old Man Haj.

In 0 BBY, the Star was taken over by a rogue artificial intelligence created by the Empire called SIM. The anthropologist Mammon Hoole, his wards Tash and Zak Arranda, and the smuggler Dash Rendar escaped from the murderous program, and Dash disabled the cruiser with his ship, the Outrunner. Dash planned to sell the Star of Empire to the Rebel Alliance.
