Affiliation

The Quasar Fire-class bulk cruiser, also referred to as the Alliance escort carrier, was a modular starship typically used for freight.

Characteristics

Designed by Sullustan megacorporation SoroSuub, the Quasar Fire-class bulk cruiser resembled a triangle, with the bridge at the point and the cargo bay at the base. The cargo bay could be modified to house various freight modules, or in some cases passenger modules.

Thin armor and shielding ran the 340 meter length of the Quasar Fire-class, and while the stock model featured no weapons, freight companies and smugglers often added laser or turbolaser cannons. A typical crew for this ship usually ran around 250 personnel. However, most of those were dedicated to the purposes of the cargo hold/hangar bay.

History

Once cargo freighters, several strip down ships were given by the Sullustans to the Virgillian Free Alignment Forces to aid them in the Virgillian Civil War. In turn the Virgillians converted the cargo hold into a hangar, as well as installing stolen Imperial grade shields and weapons. At the conclusion of the Virgillian Civil War, and once the Imperial presence was removed from the system, the Virgillian Allignment donated their fleet of carriers to the Rebel Alliance shortly before the Battle of Endor. A small number of Quasar Fire-class ships, such as Flurry and Battle Dog, made their way to the Rebel Alliance via the Virgillian Free Alignment, where their large cargo bays were modified to act as starfighter bays.

Behind the scenes

In the video game Star Wars: Rebellion, the Quasar Fire is referred to as the "Alliance escort carrier," and is treated as the equivalent of the standard escort carrier, which are only used by the Galactic Empire. Both vessels had identical gameplay value, being able to house six squadrons of starfighters, but were vulnerable from both capital ship and fighter attacks.
