"What do we have parked at R/M, Colonel?"
"Several CR-ninety corvettes, two Carrack-class light cruisers, a couple of Victories, and a Venator-class destroyer—the Liberator."
―Wilhuff Tarkin and an Imperial colonel — Quote-audio Listen (file info)[src]

The Carrack-class light cruiser was a type of light cruiser in service to the Imperial Navy and later the New Republic Defense Fleet.

HistoryEdit

A model of light cruiser, the Carrack-class light cruiser saw use within the Imperial Navy.[1] In 14 BBY,[3] Imperial Moff Wilhuff Tarkin contacted an Imperial colonel stationed at Galidraan Station and asked what Imperial resources were in the area, as he suspected an imminent attack from insurgents. Along with several other facilities, the colonel reported on the Imperial Navy's Belderone R/M Facility Four deepdock, where two Carrack-class light cruisers were parked, along with several CR90 corvettes and Victory-class Star Destroyers, and the Venator-class Star Destroyer Liberator. Tarkin deployed the Liberator to Nam Chorios, as that seemed the most likely target in the vicinity, although the insurgents ultimately chose to attack Lucazec next.[1]

Before he had come to captain the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Avenger[4] in 3 ABY,[5] Lorth Needa was a commanding officer aboard a Carrack-class as a Lieutenant Commander.[4] In the months following the Battle of Endor[2] of 4 ABY,[6] in which the Empire was weakened after the Rebel Alliance killed the Emperor in the battle, the Carrack-class light cruiser Oculus was used by the Alliance's successor, the New Republic, in its fleet.[2]
