The Venator I-class Star Destroyer was a model of Venator-class Star Destroyer used by the navy of the Galactic Republic. The starship had a wedge-shaped hull of gray color and red markings, with a dorsal superstructure rising near the aft. The superstructure possessed two towers and was flanked by eight[1] DBY-827 heavy turbolaser turrets,[2] four port and four starboard. Joining the dorsal and ventral surfaces, a recessed portion of the hull housed two sets of[1] medium dual turbolaser cannons,[2] with one set on the starboard side and another on the port side.[1] The Venator I-class Star Destroyer's successor was the Venator II-class Star Destroyer.[3]

At one point during the Clone Wars[1] against the Confederacy of Independent Systems,[4] a Venator I of the Open Circle Fleet was present near Valor, a space station orbiting[1] the planet[5] Carida, which was located in the Carida system[1] of the Colonies region of the galaxy.[6]

Behind the scenes[]

The Venator I-class Star Destroyer was first pictured, albeit unnamed, in "Republic Reinforcements," an article published by Fantasy Flight Games for the Star Wars: Armada miniatures game on their website on January 25, 2021. The article advertised the Venator-class Star Destroyer Expansion Pack,[7] released by Atomic Mass Games[8] on July 16, 2021.[9] In the expansion pack, the Venator I-class Star Destroyer was identified as such on a card of the same name.[1]
