Darth Vader’s personal starship, presented to the Lord of the Sith after the Battle of Yavin. At 12,800 meters long and armed with over a thousand weapons, the Super Star Destroyer was the first of its kind, meant to symbolize both the might of the Imperial fleet and the terror Darth Vader provoked across the galaxy. The Executor was destroyed at the Battle of Endor after a disabled A-wing starfighter crashed through the ship’s bridge. The wounded Destroyer spun out of control and collided with the second Death Star, exploding upon impact.

The flagship of Darth Vader’s fleet, the Executor was the first Super-class Star Destroyer and measured about five times the size of a normal Imperial-class Star Destroyer. The vessel served largely as a symbol of the Emperor’s unlimited power and resources, and was often used to frighten planets and whole systems into submission. Along with its numerous weapons, the starship carried two full wings of TIE fighters, totaling 144 ships, along with 200 other combat and support vessels; 38,000 ground stormtroopers; and enough garrison bases and Imperial walkers to destroy any Rebel base.

The ill-fated Admiral Ozzel originally served as the Executor’s commander, but he met his death at the hands of the unforgiving Vader. Immediately, Admiral Piett assumed control of the mammoth craft. Piett remained at this post until the ship’s fiery destruction at the Battle of Endor.
