The Steadfast was a Resurgent-class Star Destroyer of the First Order Navy and the flagship of Allegiant General Enric Pryde. Launched in 28 ABY, it was named after the Steadfast that served under Pryde's command in the Galactic Civil War. During the First Order/Resistance War, Supreme Leader Kylo Ren and General Armitage Hux transferred from the Finalizer to the Steadfast. The Supreme Council, an advisory board of high-ranking First Order officers founded by Ren, was also stationed on the Steadfast.

The Resistance infiltrated the Steadfast at Kijimi, resulting in the rescue of Chewbacca and Pryde's execution of Hux for aiding the First Order's enemies. After Ren renounced the dark side of the Force, the resurrected Galactic Emperor Darth Sidious summoned Pryde to the Sith world of Exegol where a fleet of Xyston-class Star Destroyers—the Final Order—was set to deploy across the galaxy.

The Steadfast was destroyed by the Resistance in 35 ABY, during the Battle of Exegol, while attempting to guide the Sith Eternal warships through Exegol's atmosphere. Pryde and Admiral Frantis Griss were both killed when the bridge exploded.

Description[]

Under the First Order, the Steadfast housed a conference room used by the Supreme Council, a division of First Order High Command. It also contained a suite of the organization's Supreme Leader, Kylo Ren, who kept the helmet of Darth Vader atop an obsidian pillar.[1]

History[]

Commissioning[]

In 28 ABY,[3] the Steadfast was given to Allegiant General Enric Pryde by First Order Supreme Leader Snoke, and was named in honor of the Imperial Star Destroyer of the same name that was destroyed at the Battle of Jakku.[1]

First Order/Resistance War[]

The Supreme Council convenes aboard the Steadfast

When open war between the First Order and the Resistance broke out, the Steadfast served as the flagship of Supreme Leader Kylo Ren, when Ren's previously flagship, the Finalizer, was severly damaged during a battle over the planet Batuu.[1]

Service under the Sith Eternal[]

After Ren was redeemed and returned to the light side of the Force as Ben Solo, Allegiant General Pryde was considered the de facto Supreme Leader of the First Order, and pledged not only his ship—but the entire First Order—to Darth Sidious in 35 ABY.[4]

Under the direct command of the Allegiant General, the vessel served as the leading capital ship of the Final Order on Exegol, and was armed with the newly introduced Sith troopers and Sith Jetpack Troopers.[2]

During the Battle of Exegol, The Steadfast noticed that a Resistance ground team was planning on blowing up the navigation tower to prevent the Sith fleet from leaving Exegol, so Allegiant General Pryde ordered that they switch over the source of navigation signal from that tower to one of the Steadfast's towers.[2]

The Resistance ground team landed on the Steadfast and engaged the ground forces of the Sith Eternal, until the ship was destroyed by Finn and Jannah, who took out the command deck with one of the ship's own hotwired laser cannons, decimating the bridge and claiming the lives of its officers, including Pryde and Admiral Frantis Griss. The Steadfast then crashed onto the surface of Exegol and exploded, yet not before Finn and Jannah were rescued by the Millennium Falcon.[2]
