Once an independent planet, Vardos was brought under Imperial control shortly after the end of the Clone War. A young Garrick Versio united the Jinata System under the Emperor’s banner, and Vardos became an Imperial utopia. Populated with Imperial installations, training grounds, and military bases, Vardos is also home to millions of loyal citizens. The stunning red soil of Vardos can be seen from space, as can its mountain ranges and oceans. But the planet’s jewel is Kestro, the capital city and Imperial hub. It is also the location of Vardos’ seminal Future Imperial Leaders Military Preparatory School, as well as Jinata Security’s headquarters.

The wedge-shaped Imperial Star Destroyer is a capital ship bristling with weapons emplacements. Turbolasers and tractor beam projectors dot its surface. Its belly hangar bay can launch TIE fighters, boarding craft, land assault units, hyperspace probes, or be used to hold captured craft. In the days of the Empire, its bustling bridge would be staffed by the finest crewers in the Imperial starfleet. Its presence in a system mark matters of extreme Imperial import. Though, as is typical of the Empire, not even the Star Destroyer was enough to sate the Imperial hunger for displays of power. Larger vessels, such as the Super Star Destroyer, dwarf even these giants.
