named for Arvel Crynyd, the Alliance starfighter pilot who caused the destruction of the Executor in the Battle of Endor, this Imperial-class Star Destroyer was captured by New Republic forces which were protecting the planet Milagro. The Imperial ship was damaged at the time, and limped into the Milagro System. It tried to fight back against the Dreadnaught New Hope, but was unable to defeat the Republic ship. Refitted and renamed the Crynyd, ths ship was made part of the fleet assigned to Han Solo and the Mon Remonda during the hunt for Warlord Zsinj. In the attempt to trap Zsinj at Vahaba, the Crynyd and the Skyhook were assigned to protect the Interdictor cruiser Stellar Web.
