The Unity was a Starhawk-class battleship built by Nadiri Dockyards from disassembled Imperial starships following the Battle of Endor. It had a hatchet-shaped front and was classed as a battleship.
The Unity and other Mark One Starhawks were commissioned by the New Republic's Galactic Senate to support the Republic's war effort against the Imperial remnants during the Galactic Civil War. During the Battle of Jakku, the Unity and her sister ships Concord and Amity were used as part of a wedge strategy to try and penetrate the dense Imperial starship formation above the planet Jakku. The Unity flanked the starboard side of the Concord. Both her sisters ships were destroyed during the battle, when the Punishment's commanding officer, Captain Groff, lost his nerve, and sent his ship in a collision course towards the Concord and Amity. During the battle, the Unity requested starfighter support to fend off Imperial fighters. It later launched orbital strikes against Imperial walkers to aid Commander Iden Versio and Captain Lindsey whose positions were under attack. The battle eventually ended as a decisive victory for the New Republic.
