Vessel Info

The Shadow is a Bothan Assault Cruiser. The ship was commissioned by Clan Arcona in 27 ABY after the Eighth Great Jedi War.


The Shadow acts as a carrier for the Second Fleet's 2nd Fighter Wing. Also, when House Qel-Droma is sent independently on an assignment, it often utilises the BAC Shadow


The Shadow first saw action in the inter-House Feud, a set of small issues that escalated into conflict between the two Houses of Clan Arcona. The Shadow was the crucial centerpiece of the House Qel-Droma in its campaign against House Galeres, but the feud was cut short by the fast action of the Consul and the power of the ISDII Eye of the Abyss II.

The next time the Bothan Assault Cruiser saw serious action was in 29 ABY during a feud with Clan Scholae Palatinae and Clan Plagueis, as the ship was sent with the Arcona Expeditionary Force into the Cocytus System to fight the enemy Clans' fleets, as well as the Yuuzhan Vong. The BAC sustained some minor damage during the battle, but nothing too serious.



Currently attached to the Shadow are 4 squadrons of fighters, which together form Wing III of the Arcona Expeditionary Force. Wing III is commanded by Tung Nabb.

There are also 6 Armored Interface Craft-4.

Troop Complement

The troop complement attached to the Shadow forms the twelfth division of the Arcona Army Corps. It is commanded by Colonel Channe Fay.
