Dimensions

The Vengeance's command tower.

The Vengeance was based on the standard Super Star Destroyer design, the Executor-class.[4] As such, the Vengeance was approximately 19 kilometers long,[3] and was named after the Dark Jedi's old Star Destroyer, which he commanded some time prior to the Battle of Yavin.[9]

The most striking feature of the ship was its slender frame, which was more narrow than standard Star Destroyers, almost sword-like in comparison to the usual dagger shape, and was similar to both the Victory II-class frigate[10] as well as certain large Star Destroyers mentioned by Jerec himself years before its construction.[9]

The Vengeance's height contrasted its length, which was little more than 150 meters and with downward sloping armor dominating most of the dorsal frame. The ship's bridge was extensive, but also covered much of the command tower, unlike most other KDY warships.[5] It is known that it was one of the larger Super Star Destroyers of the Imperial era, which put it in the range of being a Star Battlecruiser or a Star Dreadnought.[11]

Offensive and defensive systems

The Vengeance's array of engines.

The Vengeance was only shown defeating a small CR90 corvette,[5] but it had armaments similar to Star Dreadnoughts of the Executor-class.[3]

Propulsions systems

The Vengeance had a cluster of engines, consisting of three primary engines, two secondary engines flanking the vessel and six auxiliary engines clustering around the primary ones.[5]

Complement

Little is known about the capabilities of the Vengeance, except that it carried a number of TIE/ln starfighters and assault shuttles.[6]

History

The Vengeance's with Imperial-class Star Destroyers.

To accommedate Jerec's increasingly large ego, he had a personal warship built to be his new command ship. The vessel began construction some time before the Battle of Hoth, as Jerec donated his Vengeance II to Admiral Kendal Ozzel's Death Squadron while waiting for the larger vessel to be finished.[8] Jerec used the Vengeance as a meeting place for him and his Dark Side Elite in the following years.[1] The ship also served as flagship for the Vengeance Battle Group, an Imperial military formation which aided Jerec in his search for the Valley of the Jedi.[7]

Some time after the Battle of Endor, Jerec used it to travel to the planet Dorlo. There, he sent down a task force led by his Dark Jedi underlings to find and capture the fugitive Jedi, Qu Rahn.[6][5]

The ship was last seen orbiting Ruusan, the location of the Valley of the Jedi. The battle group it led seemed to represent a relatively common force composition, judging from the reaction of New Republic operative Alfonso Luiz Obota, who observed the group during the Mission to Ruusan in 5 ABY.[7] In 10 ABY, several similar-looking warships were seen near Byss, during Emperor Palpatine's Operation Shadow Hand campaign.[12]
