The Tyrant was an Imperial II-class Star Destroyer belonging to the starfleet of the Galactic Empire. It was part of Darth Vader's Death Squadron, and, in that capacity, it took part in the Battle of Hoth against the Rebel Alliance. During the battle, the Tyrant tried to intercept the first Rebel transports to flee from Hoth. However, the Star Destroyer's electronics and computer systems were disabled by several shots from the Rebels' v-150 ion cannon, commanded by Toryn Farr. While the Tyrant was left to float helplessly through the Hoth system, several more Rebel transports managed to fall through the cracks.
