    The Peril is a Rendili StarDrive Victory II-class Star Destroyer that currently serves as the flagship of the Greeop Defense Force.


    The Peril was constructed after the Clone Wars had ended, entering the service of the Empire in 17GrS. In 27GrS it was transferred as a support ship of Inquisitor Jerec's Star Destroyer Vengeance. It soon came to be captained by then-Imperial Captain Dave Trebonious-Astoris. When Dave defected to the Rebel Alliance in 33GrS, he brought the ship with him. For several years it was bounced around in various task forces of the fledgling New Republic. When Dave took command of Task Force Republic Shield in 42GrS, he requisitioned, received, and retrofitted the Peril for service as his flagship. It served in numerous battles under Dave and his successors. In one well-documented campaign, the vessel under the command of Dave arrived at the rendezvous point for Redemption Fleet and Retribution Wing forces on the outskirts of RS space before heading out into the Desdemona Sector to investigate reports of missing warships. It came under attack by Imperial forces led by the Modified Frigate Pronota. It supported the Star Destroyer Prometheus in holding Imperial forces at bay until Sentinel task force, led by the Star Destroyer Liberator, arrived to help repulse the Imperials. (R2F800) The Peril was retired from normal duty in the Republic Shield during the command of Leonard Cable in late 43GrS.

    At this time the Peril was transferred again, so that its original owner, Dave, could claim command of it. He at present commands the ship as his own personal vessel. It is unclear what arrangements Dave has made with the New Republic, but he treats the vessel as his own personal property and its crew as his own personal retainers, often rewarding them for service with bonuses out of his own pocket. Dave commands the Peril as his personal ship, and it is always at his beck and call. Recently, the Peril was away from the Greeop system during the Battle of Blerthmore, but it returned afterward, although too late to participate in the fighting. With the departure of the Subterrel Strike Force to the Subterrel Sector, the Peril became the flagship of the newly christened Greeop Defense Force on 44:3:13.

    As flagship of the GDF, the Peril has seen some combat but has primarily been used as a mobile operations center and diplomatic weapon. It served as the seat of operations for not only the GDF but all Republic Shield officials in the wake of the abandonment of the Command Dome on Blerthmore. It has also been used to try to sway public opinion, as when it ferried Dave to Caelum when he made a plea to that planet's Senate on 44:3:21. The Peril has seen some combat, however. On 44:3:31, the Peril, acting with the Marauder, destroyed the pirate corvette Blood and the Bulk Cruiser Redskull in a skirmish in the Tarla Sector.

    In order to ensure its competitiveness in the evolving world of post-Endor space combat, the Peril has received some modifications. The most important was the installation of a secondary shield generator in the vessel's fighter bay. The new generator provides an entirely separate shield grid beneath the main grid for extra protection, although the secondary generator is only about half as powerful as the main. The consequence of this installation is that the Peril carries a smaller fighter and shuttle complement than most Victory II's.

    The Peril maintains a complement of one reinforced squadron of Tie Avengers. Axe Squadron is responsible for providing a fighter screen for the destroyer. Twelve fighters (three flights) maintain patrols on a regular basis, and the additional four fighters make up the command flight and typically only fly when Dave himself flies his personal T/A.
