A popular expansion upon the Corellian Engineering Corp CR-90 Corvette, the Corellian Gunship fills the role of Capital Ship combat much more effectively than its predecessors. Armed to the teeth, it is effective in starfighter deterrence, while expanding its potential to defend against larger and more heavily armed vessels. Though originally designed for the Galactic Republic, the effectiveness of this vessel saw its service expand into the Empire. Still a popular choice for Smugglers and underworld business syndicates, the Corellian Gunship continues to show off its stellar design and effectiveness in combat.
After the reclamation of the Antei system in 25 ABY, all of the Clans of the Dark Brotherhood were given an allowance as a show of gratitude for showing their faith to the Grandmaster. Purchased through the Brotherhood’s many contacts within the corporate world, the Defiant was purchased alongside 3 other Corellian Gunships. The sister ships have been adapted to defend the Warspite and Indomitable.
Born in 8 BBY on Coruscant, Twi’lek Ferra Revalla was an Officer in the New Republic Defense Fleet. Participating in many battles, she left the Defense Fleet shortly after its conclusion as she felt her talents were unappreciated.
In 17 ABY, she began to hear rumors of a secret Brotherhood. Gathering all of the information that she could, Revalla came upon the planet of Judecca and joined the Scholae Palatinae Navy. Originally assigned to the Renown as the Chief Helm Officer, she was promoted to Executive Officer of the Repulse in 21 ABY. After five years of proving her capability aboard the Repulse, she was given command of the newly procured Defiant.
Originally a smuggler from Kuat, Human Pok Arrol has been assigned as the Executive Officer of the Defiant. In 18 ABY he attempted to run a Scholae Palatinae blockade above Judecca. His freighter was tractored in to the Warspite. He was given a choice, he would either rot in the dungeons of the Imperial Palace, or he would serve in the fleet. Building up trust over the years, he moved up the ranks eventually being made the Executive Officer of the GSP Defiant in 26 ABY.
