The corvette acts as a mobile base for the squadron during times of war, as well as a patrol and picket vessel for the Alliance starfleet, guarding Alliance bases from potential enemies. Command of the Nightengale was awarded to Ner’Giza for her part in freeing the Wookiees above Nar Shaddaa, and also for his promotion to Lieutenant. The Nightengale is staffed entirely by Wookiees rescued from Nar Shaddaa's orbital starfighter production factory. The only non-Wookiees aboard are Ner’Giza’s droid, KLT-99Z, 6 of her personal squad, The Quilting Bee, as well as the other members of Star Squadron, or any visitors from the Alliance. 99 considers it his reward for his part in the attack on the station above Nar Shaddaa where he ‘single handedly’ saved the Wookies by shutting down the power collars with which they had been enslaved. The crew of Wookies that man the vessel he believe are honoring the life debt owed to him for his valor in the heat of battle. As of yet, the Nightengale has not been modified. However, it is only a matter of time before 99 pimps it out to make it more formidable in combat. LEGALITYRestricted. Distance-class corvettes are considered capital warships, generally making them illegal for civilian ownership. Though Ner’Giza, not 99, has the command of The Nightengale, and it is generally referred to as "her ship," it is strictly Alliance property and can only be used for Alliance missions. INTENTTo give an account of the modifications being made to Nera's Corvette for PvP and other mission purposes. ADVANCED TECHYes. Distance-class corvettes are not trivial to buy, steal or otherwise acquire, and it would take a plot to do so.
