Manufacturer: HKD/Baktoid, modified by Silk Holdings
Model: Lucrehulk-class Core Ship, heavily modified
Affiliation: Rebel Alliance
Modularity: As the ship has been heavily modified already, further modifications may be extremely successful or cause unforeseen complications.
Material: Standard starship materials. Hull primarily durasteel.
The Absolution is a home base and combat carrier for the Rebel Alliance. Though combat-capable, the vessel's primary goal is to serve as a safe port. As a result, fully half of its passenger and cargo capacity has been repurposed for expensive technology, paid for by Silk Holdings' shipyard division as research and development. The vessel is capable of landing on a planetary surface. Its internal port capacity is sufficient to hold a large amount of personal ships, instead of gunships, dropships, and military walker barges. The mass driver flak guns are, of course, capable of being loaded with solid shot or debris in extremis.
After the Rebel Alliance dissolved, the Absolution and many Rebels joined the Levantine Sanctum.
