This is the second of two ships I could use some help with. This thing seems like a monster with the high damage weapons it has as well as the monster 9D capital scale tractor array. I am also concerned about the slow speed of 3 for a battleship built shortly after the Battle of Endor.

Thinking maybe:

Space: 6
Hull: 8D
Shields: 4D
-- Passive: 50/1D
-- Scan: 100/3D
-- Search: 200/4D
-- Focus: 6/4D+1

Constructive ideas and shared ideas appreciated.

Starhawk-class Battleship
As the first warship commissioned by the New Republic in the wake of the Battle of Endor, the Nadiri Dockyards Starhawk-class battleship represents both a hopeful future and a lamentable need for defense against the remnants of the Galactic Empire. Thanks to the concession of incorporating components from salvaged Star Destroyers, the first Mk I Starhawk, dubbed Concord, was commissioned with in six months-a staggeringly short time for a vessel of the Starhawk's size and complexity.

The Starhawk's form is like nothing in the Imperial Starfleet, but closer inspection reveals the legacy of Imperial design. Some systems, including command towers, turbolaser batteries, and engines, are taken in their entirety from Imperial II-class Star Destroyers. Countless other components more subtly integrate salvage, from hull plating to computer systems.

At 2,400 meters in length and approximately 900 high at its forward bow, the Starhawk greatly outsizes the Imperial-class Star Destroyers it draws from. The heavily armored bow presents an intimidating head-on view, even as it conceals the full size of the ship. Dominating this blunt prow is a hangar surrounded by six magnite-powered tractor beam projectors. This focused array produces a ray strong enough to immobilize ships even larger than the Starhawk.

As with other vehicles of such size and power, a Starhawk that features prominently in a campaign can function as a location or a background element foreshadowing a climactic battle. When a Starhawk does take part in a combat encounter, its impressive characteristics and numerous weapons allow it to stand up against nearly any capital ship or space station.

A Starhawk's most notable feature is its unique magnite tractor beam array. With this powerful weapon, a Starhawk can lock down even the most powerful ship and most skilled pilot PCs with their own ship might need to coordinate with a Starhawk ally in order to attack an enemy vessel while the tractor array holds it vulnerable or exposes a weak point.

1. An Imperial admiral launches an attack on the Concord- the first Starhawk-and on the Nadiri Dockyards that constructed it. This daring attack, should it succeed, would be a tremendous blow to the New Republic's burgeoning navy and might grant the Imperial remnants a real chance at victory.

2. A string of systems malfunctions plagues a Starhawk. Rumor has it that some type of Imperial fail-safe protocol survived in one of the vessel's computer systems, although the officers echo the Nadiri engineers' stance that this is impossible. Could saboteurs have infiltrated the vessel?
