The Wrath was an Assertor-class Star Dreadnought within the navy of the Galactic Empire. Both the Wrath and its sister ship, the Assertor, were laid down for construction by Kuat Drive Yards before the Battle of Yavin of 0 BBY. At some point after that battle, the Wrath was deployed in a large battle group, which was believed to have included dozens of other ships, to fight in the Galactic Civil War against the Alliance to Restore the Republic along the border between the Mid Rim Territories and Outer Rim Territories.
Behind the scenes
The Wrath was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in the Star Wars Roleplaying sourcebook Lead by Example, which was written by John Dunn and published by Fantasy Flight Games in 2016 for the Star Wars: Age of Rebellion roleplaying game system. It originated in a 2010 fanon design by Ansel Hsiao. The Wrath then entered continuity when it was introduced in the Star Wars Legends reference book The Essential Guide to Warfare, written by Jason Fry and Paul R. Urquhart and published in 2012. Hsiao himself also assisted in illustrating the book.
