The Pacifier was the Galactic Empire's scout vessel of choice. It was designed to act as either a high-tech contact vessel or as a powerful assault vessel, successful in both roles. The Empire employed this craft to seek out new worlds and if necessary, deliver a devastating strike to them. Though it normally held three gunners, powerful computer-controlled weapons enabled the craft to inflict maximum destruction with minimal effort with a single pilot.
The Pacifier was equipped with some of the most powerful sensor arrays built in its era. Its sensors were capable of counting the number of leaves on a particular tree from orbit. The New Republic considered this craft too provocative for encounters with frightened primitives and discontinued use of it.
