    It's in the first post on the first page (underneath Secutor). Misspelled as Harbringer - but it's there. Source was The Levers of Power short story by Jason Fry.

    So now we have two Imperial ships named Harbinger?

    The ISD-II Harbinger was destroyed....they may have simply re-used the name for the Tector.

    The latest preview of The Rebel Files on Amazon includes two new ship names.

    The Esperance and the Nangilima. Neither has their class specified.

    If you are just posting ship names, no need to tag for spoilers. I love the name Esperance, as it means "hope" in French. Sounds like a great name for a Nebulon-B, tbh. I hope we learn what class of ship it is.

    I'm not going to add them to the list until tomorrow, as I'm sure there will be alot more ships mentioned. Plus we may get some classes too. [face_dancing]

    Is it true that huge star destroyer from the Dark Empire comics (Palpatines ship) is canon again? Ive seen some people insist the Eclipse at the end of the Aftermath trilogy in the Unkown Regions is the ship from Dark Empire but I thought the Eclipse was just a Super Star Destroyer.

    The Eclipse in the new canon is still Palpatine's personal vessel and does serve as the flagship of the First Order in its birth. However it is unknown right now if it is personalized at all like it was in Legends. We just know it's a super star destroyer but that was it so it could be specialized or could be modded by the FO. We just have to wait right now

    Yeah, I have listed all the known star dreadnoughts under the "Super Star Destroyer" moniker until we get specific class information. At this point, I'm assuming all of the ones mentioned around the time of the Battle of Endor are all Executor-class, but until we get more information is makes sense to simply use this generic/common term.

    On another note, I'm hoping we can expand the list to include the First Order once TLJ comes out. There are several named Resurgent-class Star Destroyers named, plus a few more as well. I'll add the Resistance too, though at this point their only named capital ships are ones previously used by the New Republic.

    The names of the three Hammerhead-class corvettes seen in Rebels are formally named and confirmed!
    • Lightmaker
    • Amity's Arrow
    • Duchess Senna
    The list is updated! :D

    Interesting - so one of either Amity's Arrow or Duchess Senna is destroyed at Atollon, and that confirms that the Consonance is not one of the Phoenix Squadron ships.

    Correct. Also- the Hammerhead seen in RO that escapes that has now been identified as the Consonance had blue markings, not the read/yellow/gold markings of the trio captured by Phoenix Squadron.

    We have a new Imperial Star Destroyer from the latest issue of the Adventures comic. The beautifully-named Stormbringer.

    Also from the novel Thrawn, the troopship Sempre of unknown class (slave ship) and the frigate Castilus (noted as captured, unknown class).

    I loved that Eviscerator was made canon again. I aways loved that name.

    Very disappointed it was made canon only to have it go boom. :(

    Are these actual Imperials ships? Because right now, the assets we are tracking are only Rebel/New Republic and Imperial. I'll eventually be expanding it to the Resistance and First Order, but not until after TLJ.

    Sempre is for sure, the way Castilus is referred to makes me think it was Imperial.

    I haven't read Thrawn in awhile... what pages do these ships appear? I want to get the full context before adding them. Good catches though!

    I have the E-book so no page numbers but it is at the very start of Chapter 20.

    Here is the relevant passage:

    "The Sempre has identified its attackers as the frigate Castilus and two squadrons of V-19 starfighters,” Lomar said. “There may be more—the attackers have jammers going, and the Sempre’s transmissions are spotty. I’ve got my people scrubbing and sifting the recordings now, so if there’s anything else in there, we’ll find it.” He threw a hooded look toward Thrawn. “His last transmission said he’d been breached and was being boarded.”
    “The attacking ships were reported stolen eight weeks ago,” Thrawn added.

    Awesome, thanks guys! I've added the Castilus under the generic header "Imperial frigate" and added the Sempre under the "Imperial troopship" category.

    Also, all the ships listed in The Rebel Files have been added. I have a hunch that the Esperance is a Nebulon-B frigate, but it's just my gut. We see Mon Mothma on a escort frigate a few times in Marvel's Star Wars line, so I imagine that she'd use one of these vessels. Especially when you consider that MC80's are still rare in the post-Yavin months and that the Alliance High Command didn't permanently base itself on Home One until after Hoth.

    I've found another ship buried in The Rebel Files. An Imperial vessel, the Unassailable, which belongs to an unspecified class.

    I've added the Unassailable to the list of unknown Imperial ships. I've also edited the class for the Raddus to the proper designation of MC85, plus listed it's original name of Dawn of Tranquility next to it in parenthesis.

    I haven't added the other three named Resistance ships (Ninka, Anodyne, and Vigil)... though all three are confirmed designs from the NR era. The Anodyne was confirmed to be a prior part of the NRDF, it's probably safe to assume the other two as well, but I'm gonna hold off for a bit until we learn more.
