With the retreat of the Galactic Empire into the Unknown Regions following their defeat at the Battle of Jakku and the signing of the Galactic Concordance, the successor state known as the First Order rose to power, eventually ordering the construction of the new Resurgent-class Star Destroyers on recently constructed shipyards and secret facilities in the galaxy's vast frontier. It would still be considered a new model shortly before the Battle of Starkiller Base.
Taking inspiration from the Imperial-class Star Destroyers of the Old Empire, but lacking the resources to construct huge numbers of these capital ships, First Order designs would consciously emulate the psychological factor of the previous Imperial Era ships. The ship's bow, flight deck, side hangars, and prominent keel would share similarities to the Venator-class Star Destroyer, which reflected renewed appreciation among First Order tacticians for capital ships' role as carriers.
Further improvements in a better protected bridge tower along with quicker fighter-combat reaction time, the Resurgent-class served as the mainstay of the First Order Navy, replacing the aging Imperial-class Star Destroyers in service. Despite the size of the Resurgent-class, the Resistance's intelligence branch suspected that the First Order had even larger warships in development.
General Hux and Kylo Ren used the Finalizer, a Resurgent-class Star Destroyer 30 years after the Battle of Endor in the search for Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, and launched the Attack on Tuanul from the command ship.
Several Resurgent-class Star Destroyers, including the Finalizer as well as the Harbinger and Conqueror, also proceeded to participate in the attack on the Resistance fleet over D'Qar. The Resistance during that time suspected that at least 30 Resurgent-class Star Destroyers were present among the First Order forces.
