DESCRIPTION:
   Always needing stronger ships to carry the fight to the enemy and hold their ground against overwhelming odds, the New Republic commsioned the Republic Engineering Corporation for more powerful versions of the already impressive Nebula-class Star Destroyers.  As these vessels were already able to hold their own against the Imperial-class Star Destroyers.

   However, against the more advanced Imperial II-class Star Destroyers, the Nebula's were having trouble.  They had enough hull strength and shield power to hold out against the Imperial IIs, but they did not possess enough raw firepower to defeat them soundly in a plausible amount of time.  The Imperial IIs by contrast had lesser shields than the Nebula, but not enough to immediately retreat at the site of the New Republic's finest.  The Imperial IIs also had more raw firepower in their heavy turbolaser batteries, the most advanced and powerful weapon that had been developed for their class, as well as classes larger than Imperial II, such as the various Super Star Destrpyers and the Death Stars themselves.

   In several of these matches, both ships would be able to keep the other occupied for extended periods of time.  The Nebulas usually won such engagements, but the time the Imperial IIs could buy their forces meant much more devestation caused before their eventual retreat from the battle zone.  More often than not, the Imperials would 'poison the well' if they had the chance to do so.

   After reverse-engineering several models of the Empire's and Sienar Fleet System's strongest turbolasers and adapting it to work with the New Republic's quicker-firing turbolasers, a working model was constructed and mass production quickly began on the more powerful weapon systems.  The power generation systems had to be greatly overhauled, modified, and outright replaced with new components, all to allow the new weapons to fire their deadly energy salvos every round, a feat that the Imerial IIs had never been able to do.  All of this was finally done and did not alter the standing crew compliment of the Nebula II-class.  The result: a class of ship that, when in the right hands, could bring the Imperial II-class Star Destroyers to their knees in short order.

   The Nebula II-class Star Destroyers have stronger turbolaser weapons, as well as other advancements to give them as much edge as possible in their battles against the remnants of the Empire, and any other forces who would fight against the New Republic!
