The Vengeance, originally manufactured Galactic Empire was a strike cruiser in service of Clan Plagueis. It served for several years as a picket ship for an Outer Rim Outpost, again taking a pounding while pursuing a fleeing smuggler through the edge of a nearby asteroid field. As fate would have it, the smuggler was under the employ of Clan Satal Keto at the time, and offered information on the wounded cruiser for a reasonable price. Unable to enter hyperspace, and having limped back to the outpost, the ship was located with ease. The stage was set for a daring, and ultimately successful, raid by the Clan’s Jedi, timed for the near-completion of repairs to the ship. As the most powerful ship in the Ketoan fold, it was immediately designated the new flagship, and rechristened Malevolent. With the founding of Clan Plagueis it retained the role of flagship, and was renamed Vengeance.

It survived the alien attack on the combined Brotherhood fleets at Antei, suffering moderate structural damage, internal defacement from enemy boarders, and the loss of an engine and several weapon emplacements. After that catastrophic battle Vengeance returned to the Jusadih System and began collecting the tattered remnants of Clan Plagueis. A vain effort was put into repairing the flagship in the following weeks, in no small part spurred by the threat of the alien attackers returning for a second round. However, growing concerns over its faltering systems, the Clan’s overstretched resources, and the need to redirect crewmen to the newly released Star Destroyers ultimately led to it being scuttled to keep it out of enemy hands.
