Astrid II- Alliance Exploratory Vessel

The Astrid II is a modified Corellian Corvette in the service of the Rebel Alliance and has been outfitted to serve as an exploratory vessel. Much of its interior has been converted into laboratories and storage compartments, which can be used to emulate almost any environment. The vessel also boasts an enhanced engine performance at both sublight and faster than light speeds over the standard Corvette, as well as having a superior sensor suite.

The Astrid IIís crew is led by Commander Kat Villis and is mainly comprised of scientists that come from virtually every field of science. The starshipís primary objective is to seek out new astral bodies that are suitable for use by the Alliance, whether it be a new safe world or an asteroid field ripe for mining operations.

Commander Kat Villis
Kat is a tall and attractive human female from Shipar, which is located in the Darpa Sector. She has long flowing blonde hair, green eyes and a pale complexion. She has a pleasant demeanour and is well liked by her colleagues. Whilst she is a firm supporter of the Allianceís cause, she often does not agree with its methods and her pacifist views can be, at times, a source of conflict with any military forces working with her. As well as being the Captain of the Astrid II, she is also the starshipís chief scientist and is a keen explorer.


Lieutenant Ashmaa
Ashmaa is male Mon Calamarian from Mon Calamari. Physically, he is rather typical of his race; mottled salmon coloured skin, tall and lean. Like most Mon Cals he possesses a deep air of calm and a large capacity for concentration. Both of these traits make him an excellent marine biologist and a superb executive officer for the Astrid II.
