The Pellaeon-class was named in honor of former Imperial Grand Admiral Gilad Pellaeon, and drew upon the distinctive and classic wedge-shape of earlier times, made famous by the Harrower, Venator and Imperator classes used by the navies of the old Sith Empire, Galactic Republic and the Galactic Empire respectively.
The class was often used as command ships and combined certain elements from Star Dreadnoughts like the Executor-class and earlier Star Destroyers like the Imperial-class.
Offensive and defensive systemsEdit
The Pellaeon-class was considered one of the most powerful warships in the galaxy and was noted as having unmatched weapon systems and starfighter components. With its sleek outline, it presented less of a target to potential enemies, while at the same time optimizing its shield protection.
The forward-sloping superstructure of the Pellaeon-class also gave the main gun batteries excellent vantage points, more so than on the Star Destroyers of the previous centuries.
The class had slightly more armament than the older Imperial II-class Star Destroyer. Some of these guns were of a similar design to the XX-9 turbolaser batteries of the old Galactic Empire. The Pellaeon-class also possessed an interdiction field, capable of pulling ships out of hyperspace.
The class had a ventral hangar where starfighters and shuttles could land and embark from. Predator-class fighters would be stored in racks in narrow passages throughout the hangar area. Traffic control centers were located on either side of the main hangar opening, overlooking the area.
Its sloping profile allowed the Pellaeon-class to be shorter than the Imperial-class while at the same time be able to carry a decent amount of landing craft and small starships.
A reactor bulb protrusion was visible outside the ventral hull. It is not known if this was the ship's primary reactor or a forward, secondary one.
The Pellaeon-class had at least one conference room with a holographic projector table in the center. Its bridge was styled similar to earlier warship classes such as the Venator-class, with crew pits encircled by a command deck where ship commanders could view the ship's surroundings out of panorama windows.
