Background: A type of starship utilized by the Galactic Republic, a brand-new design at the time of the Great Disaster during the High Republic Era. They were multi-purpose craft that could be used for combat, search and rescue, transport, or other purposes. Longbeams were constructed at the Republic shipyards on Hosnian Prime. Their shape reminded Nautolan Captain Finial Bright of the hammerfish of Glee Anselm: a blunt “skull” tapering into a sinuous shape reminiscent of a tailfin. Longbeam armaments includes six missile launchers, two double blaster cannons, and missile defense countermeasures. The longbeam also includes four magclamps and winches. Many of the ships, including Bright’s Aurora IX, were used during the Republic and Jedi effort to save the Hetzal system during the Great Disaster.
