The Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier,[2] also known as the Quasar Fire-class bulk cruiser,[7] or the Imperial light carrier,[8] was a massive ship built by the SoroSuub Corporation[1] and used by the Galactic Empire both as a starfighter carrier and a mobile base of operations.[2] It resembled a triangle, with the bridge at the frontal point and the hangars at the base.[6] The Empire used such carriers in orbit of occupied planets, allowing for easy dispatch of fighters whenever necessary.[2] In the year 3 BBY,[9] the Spectres, alongside Cham Syndulla of the Free Ryloth movement, stole a Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier in orbit of Ryloth for the rebellion.[6]

The stolen ship became the flagship of Phoenix Cell and housed their A-wings. The rebels repainted it to show its new affiliation.[6] Later, Imperial forces under Admiral Kassius Konstantine attacked the cruiser-carrier and the rest of the Phoenix rebel fleet. The cruiser-carrier later hosted the Spectres' starship, the Ghost, which had returned with stolen fuel supplies from Horizon Base. After the inventory droid AP-5 informed Commander Jun Sato and Phoenix Leader Hera Syndulla that the Imperials had set a trap in the Yost system, the starship fled with the rest of the rebel fleet to the planet Atollon.[10]

Years later, during the New Republic's siege of the Kuat Drive Yards, Blade Squadron attacked and destroyed a light carrier during the final stages of the battle.[11]

Behind the scenesEdit

First appearing in the Star Wars Rebels episode "Homecoming," the Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier was first officially named in the Databank. The ship originated in the Star Wars Legends novel The Truce at Bakura, published in 1994 as the Quasar Fire-class bulk cruiser/escort carrier and was first depicted visually in the Legends video game Star Wars: Rebellion.
