The Pellaeon-class Star Destroyer was a warship design produced by Kuat Drive Yards to serve as part of the starfleet of the Fel Empire. It began its service over 100 years after the Battle of Endor and was noted as going up against the heaviest Galactic Alliance warships, including the smaller-yet-faster Scythe-class main battle cruiser.

The Pellaeon-class was named in honor of former Imperial Grand Admiral Gilad Pellaeon, and drew upon the distinctive and classic wedge-shape of earlier times, made famous by the Venator and Imperial classes used by the navies of the Galactic Republic and the Galactic Empire respectively. The Pellaeon-class Star Destroyer was often used as command ships. 

This class was considered one of the most powerful warships in the galaxy and was noted as having unmatched weapon systems and starfighter components. With its sleek outline, it presented less of a target to potential enemies, while at the same time optimizing its shield protection. The forward-sloping superstructure also gave excellent vantage points for the Pellaeon's main gun batteries, more so than on the Star Destroyers of the previous centuries.

The Pellaeon had slightly more armament than the older Imperial II-class Star Destroyer. Some of these guns were of a similar design to the XX-9 turbolaser batteries of the old Galactic Empire. The Pellaeon-class also possessed an interdiction field, capable of pulling ships out of hyperspace.

This Star Destroyer had a ventral hangar where starfighters and shuttles could land and embark from. Predator-class fighters would be stored in racks in narrow passages throughout the hangar area. Traffic control centers were located on either side of the main hangar opening, overlooking the area. Its sloping profile allowed the destroyer to be shorter than the Imperial-class while at the same time be able to carry a decent amount of landing craft and small starships. A reactor bulb protrusion was visible outside the ventral hull. It is not known if this was the ship's primary reactor or a forward, secondary one.

The Pellaeon-class had at least one conference room with a holographic projector table in the center. Its bridge was styled similar to earlier warship classes, with crew pits encircled by a command deck where ship commanders could view the ship's surroundings out of panorama windows.

After the betrayal of the new Sith Order under Darth Krayt, some of these ships chose to rebel and follow Emperor Roan Fel into exile. 137 years after the Battle of Yavin, a number of these vessels were kept in orbit and close to his stronghold on Bastion for protection. 

Later in the same year, Darth Stryfe used a Pellaeon-class vessel to search for Jedi refugees on Ossus. Upon feeling a continued presence after his troops returned empty-handed, he ordered the vessel to destroy the ruins of the Jedi Academy.
