History

It was a successor-design to the Lucrehulk-class LH-3010 cargo freighter. Originally used as commerce vessels, these vessels were manufactured exclusively for the Trade Federation, and became part of its large merchant fleet.

During the lead-up to the Naboo crisis, the Federation modified approximately ten to thirty-five percent of its operational freighters for use as armed battleships. Some were converted into army-coordinating Droid Control Ships. Vessels blockading Naboo were disguised as regular trade ships to avoid skepticism in the Senate.

Behind the scenes

The class name is made up of two words: Lucre, from the Latin "lucrum", which means "profit", and hulk, meaning either a "heavy, unwieldy ship" or an "aging vessel".
