The Dark Star is the flagship for the 77th Task Force, which is dedicated to cleaning up the corruption in the Empire. At the advent of the Xen’Chi War, the Dark Star also became one of the lead ships in the Rogue Fleet and has continued to serve with distinction.
The Dark Star is famous for having one of the lowest transfer rates in all of the Empire. This is due largely to her current commander, Dolomar Daktren, who strictly adheres to a philosophy of preserving the lives of his crew whenever possible. Daktren is smart enough to know the capabilities of his ship and her crew, and wise enough to know when retreat is a prudent course of action. It also isn’t uncommon for the Dark Star to be the last ship to leave a battle since Daktren always makes a point of searching for possible survivors.
This has led not only to an uncommonly loyal and faithful Imperial crew, but also a very skilled one. They are highly seasoned warriors who have weathered many battles and learned much from their mistakes and their triumphs. Because of the skill and coordination of her crew, the Dark Star is able to go into a battle with the odds stacked against it and still emerge victorious. Daktren is one of the few captains in the Imperial fleet who can say without reservation that he would trust his life to anyone serving on his ship.
The Dark Star is also the base ship for Midnight Squadron, an elite squadron of TIE pilots who are always the first to head into battle and the last to leave. Despite their fearsome abilities in battle, one of their primary objectives is to school the other TIE pilots and keep them from getting killed. Thanks to this careful guidance, the pilots who serve on the Dark Star have a very low fatality rate.
