    Default A Question about Super Star Destroyers (this has nothing to due with their length)

    How many Super Star Destroyers where made and what were they named?

    This is what I know

    As of Endor
    Executor
    ????? renamed Iron Fist by Zinj
    Lusankya (still under Coruscant)

    Later
    Night Hammer renamed Knight Hammer by Daala
    Pride of Yevetha or Intimidator

    there was the executor which was destroyed...
    the Lusankya which is used by the new republic (it's mentioned in the new NJO book rebel dream ..hopefully thats not a major spoiler)
    the Knight Hammer
    and i could swear the Vengeance from the jedi Knight game was a modified SSD.

    Are you asking about the 8km or 16km SSD?

    Just kidding.

    I think you pretty much covered them all. If there are any more SSDs out there, they haven't been mentioned yet as far as I know.

    I found that the Iron Fist's original name was The Brawl. But I can't help remembering something that the Empire originally commissioned 4(Executor, The Brawl, The Pride of Yevetha, and one other) with the others being constructed either in secret (Lusankya) or by a faction long after the Emperor's death (Knight Hammer).

    As for the thought that the mentioning of the Lusankya being a spoiler the captain is listed as being in command of that ship in the Dramatis Personae that all NJO series books seem to have.

    The Vengeance was just a normal ISD and was part of Vader's Death Squadron. It was one of the few that had some of its cargo space modified to extra TIE hangar bays.

    There was also the Razor Kiss (Zsinji tried to capture it, but was foiled by none other than, Han Solo and Wedge )

    I do believe that the following link from the Star Wars Technical Commentaries might be of some use. Enjoy!

    Talking Thank you very much

    Chris I've been looking for a reference like this for some time. there is a dispute among my gamers on how many SSD's there were, some say as little as 5, some say as many as twenty. Now, I have the skinny on the real number documented. thanks.

    No problem, Soontide. I won't promise that it's a complete list since I simply don't know for sure. However, seeing as how each of the entries in the list has a documented source, it can definitely be used as the lower end for how many there might be.

    So, we know there were at least 12 SSDs. Luckily, that means that we're perfectly free to introduce more of them in our own gaming universes if we so desire. Personally, I'm of the mindset that SSDs are simply too big to be using in a game, but the opportunity is there nonetheless.

    Default NEW SSDs

    I in my campaign am actually running in the NJO era but this caught my interest. I had the Remnant building them inside really bis asteroids and attacking vong with them it was pretty cool till the Republic PCs stole one then not so fun (a slew of awesome Die rolls by their Jedi with Affect Mind and really bad ones by me.)

    The Darkside edition of Gamer also listed one called the Singularity. It is run by a Dark Side Prophet known as Blackhole. He ran the imperial intelligence division. Apparently the ship and her entire compliment of TIEs and AT-ATs are cloaked with Stygian Crystals. The Stormtroopers are clad in black. According to the Gamer, the Singularity avoids direct confrontation, preferring stealth above all else.

    I know there was one a super star destroyer in one of WEGs Adventure Journals, I can't remember of the top of my head its name.

    Also in either the first or second X-wing novel there is a Super Strar Destroyer that is unnamed (I think) by General Dericote.

    That is the Singularity; however, it is not a Super Star Destroyer. The stats on page 46 of SWG #5 list it as a Imperial I Class Star Destroyer. But everything else you said is correct.

    In Cracken's Threat Dossier there is the Pride of Yevetha and the Iron Fist but neither was alone so I don't know.

    In the X-Wing books their was the Lusankya, commanded by Isard in the first 4 books, and the Iron Fist, commanded by Zinij in the Wraith Books. I don't remember Derricote being in command of one.
