Hospital ships, also known as medcenter ships,[1] were vessels used to treat wounded soldiers. During the Clone Wars, Pelta-class frigates were used as medical frigates to serve as hospital ships.[2] When clone trooper Tup was required to be sent to Kamino for a medical evaluation and required protection, Medical Frigate 517, a Republic frigate, was used.[3] Luke Skywalker was treated in one following the duel at Cloud City, after Darth Vader reveals to Luke that he is indeed his father, and cuts off his right hand.[4]
