Vortex Wind was a Mon Calamari Star Cruiser in service to the Galactic Alliance. This powerful warship was part of a task force commanded by Wedge Antilles during the latter part of the Yuuzhan Vong War, in conjunction with Operation Trinity. Along with the Star Destroyer Mon Mothma, Vortex Wind destroyed a Yuuzhan Vong warship. She survived the battle.
The ship may have been named for the planet Vortex, a member world of the New Republic.
Behind the scenesEdit
The exact class of the Vortex Wind is not clear. The term heavy Mon Cal cruiser is used to describe it, causing some fans to speculate that it may be a newer class of cruiser. Other fans maintain that it is just the standard variant of Mon Calamari cruiser in use at the time, like the MC90 Star Cruiser or Mediator-class battle cruiser. It should also be noted that Mon Calamari cruisers have been described in the EU by many different classifications, ranging from frigate to battle cruiser.
