Heroes and Villians
An old war-horse that hasn’t been put out to pasture quite yet, The Victory has been in service for nearly a century. Designed and built during a time of peace when the Republic would have a huge resource advantage over any opponents, it originally carried only minimal weaponry and was expected to rely on an escort of fighters for defense. This proved to be a fatal flaw during the Mandalorian invasion, however, and the ship was badly damaged with most of the crew dead or wounded.
The senior surviving officer, LCDR William Eisen, was promoted to commander and given command of the ship which was was hurriedly refit. With the holes in the hull patched over and heavier weapons added a new crew was assigned, made up almost entirely of raw recruits. The ship served with distinction and was scheduled to be decommissioned at the end of the Mandalorian War, but after the sudden appearance of a Sith battle-fleet it was instead pressed back into service.
The Victory is designed to transport a full company of soldiers along with their gear.
