The Neutron Star-class bulk cruiser was a class of capital ship used by the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance, manufactured by Rendili StarDrive.
These cruisers were 600 meters long. By the Galactic Civil War, the design had become outdated and easily challenged and outgunned by most up-to-date capital ships. It was slow in comparison with many of its counterparts, as well as prone to frequent damage. It required a crew of 2,050 and could carry up to 200 troops. Despite their slow speed, their engines consumed high amounts of fuel, which somewhat limited the range of these vessels. The Neutron Star also required frequent and expensive maintenance to operate, making it quickly replaced by most organizations that could afford it.
These bulk cruisers were frequently used by planetary and sectorial authorities as patrol vessels. Some of them were used as armed freighters.
The Alliance to Restore the Republic deployed some of these vessels, but they often required escort to be effective. Despite the class's capability of carrying starfighters, it hardly counted as an advantage given that most other medium-sized warships were capable of hosting fighters.
