Description: Named for the location of first contact between Mon Calamari and the ancient Republic, the Ruisto-class is a multirole vessel designed for extended operation. Its flexibility comes at a cost: Other ships of its size have an edge in main guns and small craft capacity. The vessel is split into fifteen decks and 257 rooms, including individual and family quarters, laboratories, recreational facilities, medical berths, and so forth. Though this vessel can survive in a fight, and includes the trademark Mon Cal redundant shields, it is not a ship meant for conquest, but for long-term exploration, diplomacy, science, resource prospecting, and a variety of other critical roles. Advanced mapping sensors and simple, automated hyperspace probes allow it to handle the uncharted space at the edge of the galaxy. Its hydroponics and science bays allow extended operation even beyond its consumables stores, evaluating and taking on foodstuffs from worlds it locates. Its medical bay is overstocked and its medical staff is large, allowing for a strong medical/rescue role. The Ruisto excels at nothing but is capable of anything.
