MC80a Home One Type Heavy Star Cruiser
Similar in size, strength, and role to the Imperial Navy's Star Destroyers, the Mon Calamari Home One type star cruiser is an imposing vessel. While ships of this type vary slightly in size and shape, they do share many common design cues and possess the same quasi-organic look as other Mon Calamari-built ships. Each vessel in the class has a long, cylindrical hull tapering to a point at the bow and flaring into a flat fantail at the stern. Weapon batteries and sensor arrays are placed around the hull at strategic points, protected by long, armored blisters. Two massive hangar bays are mounted amidships, and thrust is provided by ten ion drives of various size mounted astern below the fantail. The addition of the heavier hull plates and improved armor gives the Home One type cruiser a bulky, almost humpbacked appearance.

Precious few of these ships are currently in service with the Alliance Navy, and High Command jealously guards those that are. They are rarely deployed without a heavy escort of smaller cruisers and carriers, and orders are typically given that they are to stay at the rear of an engagement. protected from enemy fire. These orders don't stop bold commanders like Ackbar from running their ships directly into Imperial Navy formations, however. Their powerful weapons and large fighter wings can quickly turn the tide of a battle, and their mere presence serves to inspire Alliance personnel, thanks to the grit and bravery of their Mon Calamari crew.

Due to their importance. the few Home One type cruisers possessed by the Alliance are commonly encountered with a protective screen of at least a dozen support ships.

Home One cruisers bombard enemy warships at long range with their turbolaser batteries in groups of three to four. Any warship that closes in faces the MC80a's ion cannon batteries, fired in groups of four. Any ship that gets within close range must contend with five turret groups of quad laser cannons as they attempt to rend enemy fighters and gunships.

1. The Independence, an MC80a cruiser, was critically damaged during an engagement with the Empire and is in desperate need of fuel. The PCs must race against time to scout the sector for a fuel source before the Empire tracks the cruiser down.

2. The Empire has captured an important Alliance shipyard and its staff, including the Mon Calamari shipwright in charge. The PCs must rescue the prisoners and, with their help, get an incomplete MC80a spaceworthy for their escape.
