The Eclipse was the first Eclipse-class dreadnought ever constructed and the lead ship and prototype of its class. It was built as a flagship for Emperor Palpatine. Both a powerful technological tool and a potent psychological weapon, the Eclipse boasted a planet's worth of weaponry and was almost unstoppable. The Eclipse was equipped with a bevy of weapons and other technologies, including gravity well projectors, but chief among its weapons was an axial superlaser, capable of cracking a planet's crust or destroying a capital ship in a single blow. It was destroyed in the Battle of the Eclipse.
