The direct predecessor to the well-armed Corellian corvette, the Republic
cruisers were assembled in the great orbital shipyards of Corellia, and
served as a testament to the quality and fame of Corellian spacecraft
The most notable feature of the Corellian space cruisers, the interchangable
salon pod, served as the mounting point for a pair of powerful fire-linked
turbolaser cannons. While the diplomatic cruisers carry a formal conference
room within their salon pod, the patrol cruisers' salon pods were entirely
turbolasers and targeting sensors with a cramped space for the gunners. The
patrol cruisers also boast a pair of Corellian quad laser cannon turrets
for point defense against starfighters and other small starships.
These patrol cruisers were most commonly found as light escorts for convoys
and larger warships but many served as system defense and patrol vessels,
policing a localized area of space and protecting against piracy and small
In order to communicate with any alien vessels it may encounter, the Republic
patrol cruisers sport a variety of dishes and antennas similar to, but
not indentical to, those on the diplomatic Republic cruisers. On board the
patrol cruiser, two communications officers specialize in operating the
communication computers, deciphering strange languages and decoding the
complex signal pulses of unorthodox alien transmissions.
Roughly forty years old at the time of the Trade Federation invasion of
Naboo, the Corellian star cruisers became quite a common sight throughout
much of the galaxy before finally being replaced by the Corellian corvettes.
