Slightly used Imperial II-Class Star Destroyer selling on Craig’s List at a measly 145,670,000 credits
There are plenty of crazy things on sale on Craig’s List which means you could potentially find anything you can think of, even a 1600 meter long Imperial II-Class Star Destroyer that’s “slightly used”. Its one thing to be selling a brand new Star Destroyer but a second hand one is something you’d need to check out thoroughly before making a purchase; you never know if an Ion canon or deflector shield is up and running smoothly since I’m pretty sure the warranty’s not valid anymore. Plus there’s the matter of galactic battle-damage from recent wars, so yes, a thorough inspection would be warranted before a purchase.
However the seller has provided adequate specifications to distinguish this from your average run-of-the-mill Imperial Battle Cruiser or any other ship in the fleet. It’s loaded with 2 hyperdrive systems but those can sometimes be a little tricky especially after infiltration/sabotage by those pesky rebels or a shoot out with that rebel-scum aboard the Millennium Falcon. He’s also said that although the Ship “ran with a crew of 37,085” it could be managed “with a minimum of 5000”.
This Imperial II-Class Star Destroyer ships complete with “LeGrange targeting computers, heavy ion cannons, Phylon Q7 tractor beam projectors, leather bucket seats, and a 15-disc CD changer.” And all this for a rather reasonable 145,670,000 credits which is open to negotiation, however getting the ship off his premises will be the buyer’s concern.
If you think I’m making all of this up, here’s the full ad as listed –
“Selling a slightly used Imperial II–class Star Destroyer.
Previously (slightly) owned by a navigator of a spice freighter, this vessel has been sitting on my moisture farm and needs to be removed before next year’s harvest. I just haven’t had time to give this classic the attention it deserves and my loss is someone else’s gain!
1600 meters in length this bad boy has a maximum atmospheric speed of 975 km/h and an acceleration of >2,300 g. It’s got a Class 2 hyperdrive system still in working order with a backup Class 8. SFS I-a2b solar ionization reactor is in good to excellent shape. KDY Destroyer-I ion engine turns over on the first try but may need a new serpentine belt.
As you can see by the picture provided, the deflector shield generator domes are intact. That is a state of the art ISD-72x.
Fully equipped with LeGrange targeting computers, heavy ion cannons, Phylon Q7 tractor beam projectors, leather bucket seats, and a 15-disc CD changer.
36,000 tons of cargo capacity, this beauty was ran with a crew of 37,085 but you can pull it off with a minimum of 5000 leaving you plenty of room to pack in a few extra AT-AT walkers, TIE starfighters, prefabricated garrison bases, Lambda-class shuttles, yards of soil, spool after spool of pipe, and jet skis.
This superstructure is perfect for long road trips with the family, discovering new galaxies, picking up girls for dates, and general destruction of your enemies. Have you ever seen what a Star Destroyer can do to the surface of an unshielded planet? Stones run like water and sand turns to glass. With just a little TLC, this baby can be good as new.
Brand new, this beauty of the skies runs at about 145,670,000 credits, but due to some carbon scoring I can be flexible on the price. Realistically, I just need it removed from my property, so all offers or trades will be considered. Make me an offer, no mind tricks
First come, first serve basis. You are responsible for towing.”
