Notes: Obviously inspired by the Hammerhead-class Frigates from the KotOR games. Hopefully if characters in SWTOR ever have to board a Thranta, its layout will be more "efficiently designed starship" and less "silly RPG dungeon," unlike the Hammerhead in KotOR II.

The stats are a bit of a departure from the previous starships, because I used the creation guidelines in Starships of the Galaxy a lot less this time about. Of course, the only bits that really matter are how fast it goes, how much damage it can take, and how much damage it can deal out. Cargo space and crew required are really just fluff.

  1. Hard to believe that these things could take on a mon-cal cruiser, but then again it's supposed to be a step up from the hammerhead.
