Neutron Star-class Bulk Cruiser

The Neutron Star-class Bulk Cruiser are a class of capital ship used by the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance, manufactured by Rendili StarDrive. They were designed during the Clone Wars to serve as second-line ships. By the Galactic Civil War, the design had become outdated and easily challenged and outgunned by most up-to-date capital ships. It was slow in comparison with many of its counterparts, as well as prone to frequent damage.

Technicans and mechanics of the Alliance Fleet found the maintenance time and resources that the Neutron Star class vessels required problematic but the ship starved Alliance was unwilling to discard the vessels completely. Instead they have converted some of the ships into carriers. This has been done by converting cargo storage areas into hangers for three squadrons of starfighters, also the modifications altered the design’s armaments and crew requirements while upgrading both the primary and backup hyperdrives.
