History[edit]

The history of the ISD-II Hammer was devised as part of the Historians Club a competition run in 2021 which was won by COL Doyon with his entry below. The runner up for this competition was an entry by Kell.

The Imperial-class Star Destroyer II Hammer was manufactured in 1 BBY at Kuat Drive Yards. Its crew has joined and trained with it for about 6 standard months, before being placed in the 37th fleet, patrolling the Mid-Rim.

In 0 BBY, the ISD Hammer, under the command of Captain Olin Miurt, participated in its first major operation in the Pacification of the Polia Sector, a region near Naboo. Several attacks occurred on civilian ships in the sector, which prompted the Imperial Navy to send the 37th in the region to defend the Imperial citizens. After 2 months of cat and mouse game, the Imperial fleet managed to trap the pirates responsible for the attacks, destroying them. The ISDII Hammer successfully engaged its TIE against pirate starfighters, and Captain Miurt even had the audacity to get into ship to ship combat, destroying an old Carack Cruiser.

After the Battle of Yavin, the Imperial Fleet was reorganized, and Miurt was promoted to Admiral. Replacing him was Frisia Warten, a young and ambitious Captain from Corellia. The Hammer was then placed under the 12th fleet, patrolling once again the Mid-Rim, but this time near the Hutt sector. For two years, the fleet patrolled the system, fighting periodically against Hutt criminals. The only event of note during that time was the Hammer being dispatched to participate in a relief effort to save Imperial colonists in the Sarriat system, where a giant meteor struck the planet Vell, making it uninhabitable. The Hammer’s stormtroopers helped to reestablish contact with the colonists and evacuate them from the colony.

In 3 ABY, the 12th fleet was moved in the Parmic system to fight against Admiral Harkov’s forces. Warten, impatient to get noticed by the Imperial High Command, made several bold moves in the campaign, severely crippling the Hammer and her TIE squadrons. The ship had to be repaired at the Kuat Drive Yards, but Warten was finally promoted somewhere else in the Empire.

The Hammer was modified while being under repair to be able to accommodate two prototypes being tested in the Empire, the TIE Defender and the Missile boat. The ship was placed in the Emperor’s Hammer Strike Fleet, under the command of the newly promoted Grand Admiral Ronin. The Hammer fought at the Battle of Endor with the Emperor’s Hammer, where it managed to successfully repulse several attacks by Rebel starfighters, thanks to its complement of TIE Defenders and Missile Boats.

It wasn’t enough to win the battle though, and when the Death Star exploded, along with the death of the Emperor and Lord Vader, the Hammer left the battlefield on its own. Hopefully, Grand Admiral Ronin survived the battle, and he hailed all Imperial ships to follow him in the Outer Rim. The Hammer rejoined with the Emperor’s Hammer Strike Fleet, and is still fighting for the Empire since that day.
