"The starfleet is a sea. It is endless, cannot be beaten, and given enough time turns even the strongest rocks to sand."
―Grand General Cassio Tagge[src]

The Imperial Navy, also known as the Imperial Starfleet or the Imperial fleet, was the naval branch of the Galactic Empire's military. It was created in the wake of the Clone Wars, when Chancellor Sheev Palpatine transformed the Galactic Republic he led into an authoritarian Empire.[1] Consisting mainly of Star Destroyers[13] andTIE/LN starfighters,[14] the Imperial Navy favored starships with straight-lined shapes and was tasked with maintaining order in the galaxy.[1][15].
