Neo-Sith

The Arcturus was the flagship of the Neo-Sith. It was an immense vessel, almost as large as the former Imperial Super Stardestroyers. The Arcturus was the first known artificially created mechanism that exuded its own Force presence. This was accomplished by merging the Orb of Unity with the ship's hyperdrive, a process only understood by the highest Neo-Sith Lords. Thus, the Arcturus was partially powered by the Force, giving it Force-based weaponry, shielding, and propulsion, all of which were still controlled by conventional computers, though it may have been possible to influence the ship with a very strong concentration of the Force.

Aside from being invincible to conventional attack, the main purpose of the Arcturus was to bring all life in the galaxy into harmony, or at least in touch, with the Force. This was achieved by use of the very large weapon built into the top of the ship, which had the ability to fire a colossal beam of pure Force energy which could cover an entire planet in seconds. Any life form, sentient or not, would immediately gain increased knowledge of the Force and stronger/newer abilities, and life that had no connection to the Force now would. Darth Andrell hoped to unite the galaxy by giving everyone abilities in the Force, thus giving everyone a commonality, as well as a higher spiritual understanding.

After Andrell and Daam Kule teleported to the Force Planet as the Arcturus prepared to fire upon Coruscant, a team led by Jedi Master Sirius Cross managed to destroy or at least disable the chamber housing the Orb of Unity, which in turn began to break the entire vessel down. All of the Jedi, their allies, and most of the Neo-Sith managed to escape before the Arcturus imploded on itself in a bright flash of light. Everyone, including Andrell, thought the ship was destroyed, but in fact the Force had transferred it into its realm for protection. Six months later, the Arcturus returned to known space, along with Darth Andrell. She continued to be the Neo-Sith's Flagship, now powered directly by the Force. She had all of her prior abilities, save for the Super Force Cannon, which had been downgraded (but was still powerful) to a large beam weapon.
