Around 214 BBY, a group of transport businesses in the Rseik Sector decided to join the Trade Federation. They were burdened by pirates, and the Defense Force sent a flotilla including a Captor-class heavy munitions cruiser and two Munifex-class cruisers to stop the pirates.
Relatively heavily-armed for its size, but not boasting the fastest hyperdrive, it was not as prominent in the Galactic Civil War as ships like the Carrack-class cruiser and the Star Galleon-class frigate, and may have been found primarily in relatively low-priority sectors.
