Characteristics

The changed engine-array and the addition of a tower structure to the ship's superlaser meant that the Eclipse II was more representative of a new class rather than the original Eclipse-class.

The figures for armament, complement, crew, passengers, consumables and cargo are conjectural, under the assumption that the main design was the same as the original Eclipse.

History

Eclipse II jumping into hyperspace

It served as the flagship of Emperor Palpatine after the destruction of the first Eclipse. The Eclipse II would transport Palpatine to the Sith world of Korriban, and later on become the focal point of the Battle of Onderon, where the New Republic attempted to capture the Emperor.

Eclipse II was ultimately destroyed over Byss, after the astromech droid R2-D2 took control of its computer banks and set the ship on a collision course with the Galaxy Gun. As it crashed into the orbital cannon, a projectile from the Galaxy Gun ejected and was pulled towards the planet below. In the ensuing explosion, both the remnants of the Star Dreadnaught and the superweapon were destroyed.
