The Trantor is a type of starship used in the Star Wars universe. It is a massive vessel used by the Galactic Empire for various purposes, such as transporting troops, vehicles, and supplies to different locations. The Trantor is known for its impressive size and advanced technology, making it a formidable force in battle.
The design of the Trantor is based on the Venator-class Star Destroyer used by the Galactic Republic during The Clone Wars. However, the Trantor is much larger, measuring over 5 kilometers in length. It features a dorsal fin-like structure on its upper hull, which houses sensor arrays and communications equipment. The ship’s main armament consists of turbolaser batteries and ion cannons, which are mounted on its hull and are capable of firing in all directions.
One notable Trantor is the Conquest, which was used by Grand Admiral Thrawn during his campaign against the New Republic. The Conquest was heavily modified with new weapons and was able to launch TIE fighter squadrons from its hangars. It was involved in several major battles, including the Battle of Bilbringi, where it was severely damaged and eventually destroyed.
The Trantor also appeared in the Legends novel Outbound Flight by Timothy Zahn. In the book, the Trantor is used by the Empire to transport Darth Sidious and Darth Vader to the Outbound Flight project, which was an attempt to colonize the unexplored regions of the galaxy. The Trantor serves as a base of operations for the Empire during the project, and is eventually destroyed by the Jedi and their allies.
