Name Origin Edit
The Radiant VII was a consular ship that served the Old Republic for 34 years before transporting Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi to Naboo for their negotiations with the Trade Federation Viceroy Nute Gunray. The ship delivered the Jedi on time but was ordered to be destroyed by Darth Sidious. The ship, along with the crew of 8 were reduced to smoldering cinders by the Federation's automated defense systems. A beautiful Corellian Engineering Corporation Republic Cruiser, the Radiant VII measured 115 meters in length. Its forward section resembled that of the later Corellian Gunship, while its aft section was dominated by three Dyne 577 radial atomizing sublight engines. Being a purely diplomatic vessel, as noted by its red coloration, the ship had no weaponry, but did have 9 escape pods to handle its maximum of sixteen passengers.
