Summary

For three full decades, on television and in film, actor William Shatner has portrayed one of the most dynamic heroes of science fiction: James Tiberius Kirk, captain of the Starship Enterprise. Although Kirk appeared to perish at the conclusion of Star Trek Generations, the big national bestseller, The Return, revealed the amazing story of Kirk's resurrection.

Now William Shatner brings his distinctive blend of talents as actor, writer, director, and producer to continue the saga of Jim Kirk's second life -- and to reunite one of the greatest teams of any future century....

A lethal virus, inimical to all conventional forms of plant life, threatens the entire Federation with starvation and dissolution. With the Federation already on the brink of overpopulation, Starfleet's resources are stretched to their limit. Whole worlds and even complete star systems are placed under quarantine, causing interstellar food supplies to run dangerously low, and hostile alien empires to eye the weakened Federation with malevolence. But now, in this moment of Starfleet's greatest need, Captain James T. Kirk, long believed dead, embarks on a desperate quest to find the true source of the mysterious virus.

Elsewhere in the galaxy, Ambassador Spock, his diplomatic efforts stalled by the spread of famine and chaos, returns to his native world of Vulcan to confront a mystery of a deeply personal nature. Did Sarek, his legendary father, really die of natural causes -- or was he murdered? Determined to learn the truth, Spock begins a highly logical investigation that soon leads him to a reunion with a long-lost friend he never expected to see again.

Kirk and Spock, together again, must join forces to save a new generation from an awesome menace unleashed by a ruthless interplanetary conspiracy. Pursued by hidden assassins and aided by old lovers and unlikely new allies, the two heroes risk everything, only to find themselves confronted by the one man who might be able to stop them -- Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the Starship Enterprise NCC-1701-E.

Full of high adventure and powerful drama, Star Trek: Avenger is an engrossing new Star Trek epic -- and a moving tale of past memories and new hope that only William Shatner could tell.

From Grand Theft Wiki

Toni Cipriani on an Avenger.

The Avenger is a motorcycle in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, which is given as reward to Toni Cipriani for completing 15 levels of the Avenging Angels mission in Portland Island. It will be appear at the Portland Island safehouse. The Avenger is bulletproof as well as fireproof and can only be obtained once in the game. If the player wants to keep this vehicle, he/she should store it in a garage.

Performance

The top speed, acceleration and handling are considerably better than the other chopper bikes of the GTA III Era; the Angel and the Freeway. It is, as aforementioned, bulletproof and fireproof, so the only way it can be damaged is through collisions or firing a Rocket Launcher at it.

History

The Avenger pursues the Millennium Falcon.

One of the Avenger's earliest missions was the attack on the CR90 corvette Karinne, carrying a Twi'lek delegation to the Rebel Alliance. The Avenger launched three flights of TIE/sa bombers against the Karinne, and entered hyperspace. The intervention of two Alliance BTL Y-wing starfighters saved the diplomatic vessel.[1]

After the discovery of an Alliance intelligence facility on Dankayo, the Avenger participated in the brutal subjugation of the world. Alongside the Imperial I-class Star Destroyers Devastator and Relentless, the Avenger executed Base Delta Zero against Dankayo, incinerating its atmosphere and reducing its surface to slag.[2]

As early as 0 ABY, the Avenger was commanded by Captain Lorth Needa. Under Needa's command, the Avenger earned a reputation for subjugating planets in the Outer Rim Territories, participating in the subjugation of over 436 worlds.

In 1 ABY, Rebel agents destroyed an Imperial depot that contained a large number of orbital mines intended for shipment to the Avenger:[3]

The Avenger, pursuing the Millennium Falcon out of the Hoth Asteroid Field, a task which gained it and its crew a reputation for persistence.

The Avenger was later reassigned to Death Squadron and served as the lead attack ship at Hoth. During the course of the battle, the Avenger was disabled. However, its functions had been restored by the time that the Millennium Falcon departed from the planet during the Rebel evacuation.[4] The Avenger unsuccessfully pursued Han Solo's fast freighter, a failure which resulted in Needa's execution by Darth Vader. Nevertheless, despite Needa's failure, the Avenger gained a reputation from the chase as it managed to continuously pursue the Millennium Falcon past the Hoth asteroid field while other ships in Death Squadron lagged far behind.

During the Battle of Kothlis, the Avenger arrived alongside the Executor to disrupt a Rebel transfer with Bothan agents to acquire the Death Star II plans. The Avenger captured the CR90 corvette Razor, which held the battlestation plans. However, the Avenger's attempt was in vain, as the crew escaped with the plans and delivered them to the Alliance.

The Avenger remained with Vader's Death Squadron and served as a communications ship during the Battle of Endor. When Vader arrived at the Death Star II to put its construction back on schedule, his personal shuttle was launched from the Avenger. Under Sedriss QL, the ship participated in the Second Battle of Balmorra.[5]

Behind the scenes

Although first seen in 2 BBY, the Imperial II-class Star Destroyer wasn't introduced until 0 BBY.

The Industrial Light & Magic model of the Avenger used in The Empire Strikes Back was 2.59 meters long and detailed with thousands of parts from model kits.

Galaxy Guide 3: The Empire Strikes Back identifies the Avenger as the Star Destroyer that launched the Viper probe droid that discovered Echo Base. This appears to have been based on dialogue between Captain Needa and a subordinate that did not make the final cut of the the radio dramatization of The Empire Strikes Back.[6][7] However, the Star Wars Customizable Card Game later contradicted this, as did the Star Wars Encyclopedia and the PC program Star Wars: Behind the Magic. These sources identify the Stalker as the Star Destroyer holding this distinction. Further adding to the confusion, Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary also identifies the Avenger as the Star Destroyer that launched the probe droid. Attempting to clarify the discrepancy, The Essential Atlas states that both ships were responsible for deploying probe droids, though does not state with absolute certainty which ship is seen in the film.

Star Trek's ISS Avenger, a ship authored by Mike Sussman, was named as an homage to the Avenger.[8]

In Return of the Jedi, Avenger did a mimic of the Star Destroyers Devastator and Stalkers opening sequences in A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back.
