Republic Shield vessel commanded by Captain Hril Jerichea.
Travelled to a rendezvous point near the planet Darâ€™telis I, where a refugee convoy was being escorted by Republic Shield forces to the vessel. However Imperial forces led by the Star Destroyer Emissary arrived to intercept the convoy and prevent it from reaching the vessel. Republic Shield reinforcements forces helped bolster the escorting Republic Shield forces, and the convoy successfully entered the vesselâ€™s hangar bay. Imperial reinforcements led by the Frigate Harasser II soon arrived to launch a second prong of the Imperial attack. Republic Shield forces battled with the Imperial forces while the vessel weathered the Imperial assaults. The Calamari Cruiser Aeneas finally arrived to reinforce the vessel, which had been severely damaged in the assault. Imperial forces temporarily withdrew from the combat zone.
Awaited a convoy of repair craft to deliver work crews and equipment to the vessel, as the vessel had suffered serious damage from the previous engagement with Imperial forces. The Calamari Cruiser Aeneas supplied Republic Shield forces which maintained area security for the vessel while the convoy travelled to the vessel. Imperial forces attempted to hamper the repair efforts, targeting both the repair convoy and the vessel itself. Imperial forces were finally reinforced by the Star Destroyer Emissary, which led a devastating assault that the Republic Shield defending forces were barely able to contain. However, the repair crews and equipment restored the vessel to operational status, and the vessel led Republic Shield forces in repulsing Imperial forces from the combat zone.
Stationed at the purple gas planet Morba during Imperial assault in the Vivianas system, which the Star Destroyer Prometheusâ€™s force, fresh from the Battle of Morba, rushed to respond to, while the Emancipator remained unaware. Not realising that the Prometheus and Liberatorâ€™s forces were delayed at the planet Vivianas, the vessel moved with its forces from the Aecreas system to reinforce the friendly but under-defended Eridani system. "All the trade lines were pointing right at Eridani, and if they didnâ€™t set up a block there quickly, it was possible that with the remaining Imperial forces entering the sector from Dia Pas that they could launch a counter offensive that could cut off the main trade lines and leave the Republic Shield dependant on a single line through Vivianas."
After reinforcing the Eridani system, travelling to Zephran system, where Republic Shield forces became embroiled in a major battle with Imperial occupying forces. Travelled to the outskirts of the Harnah system during Republic Shield assault on Imperial supplies further in-system, led by the Star Destroyer Prometheus.
Relocated to the Aecreas system to undergo repairs, before moving off to guard supply lines in the sector.
Behind the Scenes
This ship is borrowed from Official Continuity. It was captured at the Battle of Endor, and participated in many iconic battles, including the Battle of Borleias and the Battle of Coruscant, which resulted in New Republic liberation of the Imperial capital. The vessel was then transferred out to the Greeop Sector for a time, and has since returned back to the New Republic Defence Fleet proper in preparation for its scheduled demise in the Battle of Mon Calamari.
