Rise of the Empire era[1]


The massive Mandator I-class Star Dreadnaught was a KDY warship.



The Mandator I-class was a multi-mile long warship in the Star Destroyer design family.[2][3] It had a main reactor large enough to protrude from the "belly" of the ship, similar to the ventral bulb of the later Imperial-class Star Destroyer.[1] The original Mandator model was equipped with a limited-range hyperdrive that restricted it from transgalactic travel.[1]


In the last decades of the Galactic Republic, the Mandator-class was developed and produced by KDY. Star Dreadnaughts of this class helped form the Kuat Sector's defense fleet, working alongside Procurator-class Star Battlecruisers,[1] to protect against invasion.[5][6]

The ships continued service in the Galactic Empire, as Kuat's security forces were Imperialized and augmented at the Empire's founding to ensure continued military ship-production.[7] Unlike their starfighter lines, the Mandator design was still part of Kuat's bountiful ship catalogue decades later.[2]

Behind the scenes

Its name comes from the Latin word Mandatum, which means either "command" or "order".[8]

In an official interview with TheForce.Net, author Curtis Saxton described the ships in Kuat's sector fleets as comparable to the later vessels of the Galactic Empire, but limited to local hyperdrive-ranges.[3]
