Used
This ship is considered “Used” (per Starships of the Galaxy p.10). If it moves -3 steps on the Condition Track (i.e. -5 penalties) then it can no longer be moved up the condition track by use of the Reroute Power action. This persists until a successful Mechanics skill roll to Repair Object or it can be Jury-Rigged (using the DCs from the Core Rules listed under the skill).

Modifications

  • Installed a very nonstandard SR 55 shield system
  • x.75 hyperdrive installed, original x2 hyperdrive relegated to backup
  • Combat thrusters and maneuvering jets installed
  • Sublight accelerator installed
  • Removed stock laser cannon and installed a light ion gun as well as EWeb docking gun
  • Installed a jamming suite, sensor array computer, sensor enhancement package, disguised transponder (3), and hypertransceiver
  • Cut a hole to install a nonstandard belly quad medium laser cannon gunner position
  • Cut another hole for a dorsal quad medium laser cannon gunner position. Installed basic slave circuits allowing the dorsal gun to be slaved to the Pilot.
  • Reinforced the bulkheads by 10%
  • Replaced the regular navcomputer with an advanced navcomputer
  • Replaced the 2-square sublight engine with a 4-square sublight engine
Bio:
“Poodoo that’s a cargo ship! It’s either a pirate vessel, blockade running smuggler transport, or some kind of covert military ship masquerading as a transport… I just can’t tell if it’s Imperial or Rebel but my guess is Rebel.” – random NPC starport

From the outside, the Phoenix looks like any other YT-1300 that might be found on the Outer Rim. She sports heavy defensive weaponry and a few more sensor arrays than a “basic” YT-1300 (not unusual on the outer rim as pirate defense). However, upon closer inspection she appears extremely agile, with more manuvering jets and combat thrusters than a typical ship of her class. To the trained eye she seems more than able to keep up with heavy class snub-fighters. Most people who see her can be fairly certain that she’s a smuggler’s ship or the property of an extremely wealthy merchant who is willing to pay to make his ship very, very difficult to catch.

On the inside, it becomes very obvious that she’s a warship rigged for battle and no longer a mere transport. Nearly all of her original 100 ton cargo capacity has been given over to weapon, defense, or other types of systems. The Phoenix was designed to reliably and convertly transport the former Queen of Naboo (and one of the PRCs primary financial backers/political movers and shakers) as well as her “team” of highly effective Rebel operatives all around the Galaxy on PRC missions.

In other words… it’s clear that the Phoenix was the YT-1300 transport of the original PCs.

She has undergone a significant number of modifications; the amount of credits sunk into her hull nearly boggles the mind. Here she is presented as she might appear after Leeza Damolan moved on. While Leeza Damolan was with the party, it featured the “Luxury, Basic” passenger quarters upgrade at the cost of 5 tons of cargo space and added +1000 credits to the monthly upkeep.

Oh, obviously I converted it to the SAGA edition. It was originally the other WotC version of the rules.

R2-Z4

Included with the Phoenix are the stats for R2-Z4, the R2 series Astromech that once belonged to Ael-Mich Kidou (one of the fallen Jedi PCs from the previous campaign).


Allegedly R2-Z4 has been mindwiped once but some folks are not so sure. He’s developed a fondness for the Phoenix and prefers to stay with the ship (perhaps the wipe wasn’t as thorough as the techs thought). The only exception is if Kelko is around. In that case, the droid will invariably prefer to go/do whatever/wherever the Rodian does. R2-Z4 only speaks in binary to strangers. Only his “master” (either the commander of the ship or if there’s a male human Jedi on board) and those he perceives as “friends” are spoken to via his vocabulator system.

When he’s not actively being needed, R2-Z4 hangs out in the crowded cargo area (such as it is) plugged into the ship or tinkering with the Hyperdrive to keep it tuned or various other systems on the Phoenix (Once per day thanks to Hyperdriven R2-Z4 can ‘take 10’ for a DC 31 mechanics roll, and can spend a Force Point to get +5 on top of that… and he can reroll if he needs to. He’s a pretty good mechanic.)… Even still, R2-Z4 does NOT act as the “Droid Repair Team” ship upgrade because R2-Z4 doesn’t have any of the auto-deployment hatches or systems. He must be taken to a regular hatch and “shoved out” in order to do his repairs. Thus he does not take up an emplacement point.

His Holorecorder has slightly less capacity than a normal one. He keeps the recording of his former master’s farewell at all times. It somehow survived the “wipe.” Nobody sees this except R2-Z4 as he doesn’t show anyone but from time to time the audio can be heard throughout the ship when it’s quiet.
