The Scimitar is one of the largest and most powerful of Black Galactic’s capital ships and so is captained by Admiral Trace Kathan, a human male from Corellia. His EXO is Captain Jamie Rose, a human female also from Corellia. The ground forces of Scimitar are commanded by Colonel Lo’smarea male Mon Calamari.
The Scimitar has worked together with the Sabre in almost every logged combat case. The two form their own fleet Element and usually form the core of the most active fleet Section. The Sabre does not boast the full crew or armament of a fully outfitted Imperial Stardestroyer but most of her enemies could not tell. She has a crew of under 30,000 personnel and has a reduced armament. To compensate for the lack of crew Sabre and Scimitar encorporate an extensive networking hub that slaves their sensors and targeting to each other allowing for unpreciadented co-ordinated manoeuvres and firing. Almost 1000 of the crew on each ship are specially trained techies that have the ‘Network’ designation. The additional space saved from the lower crew, ground forces and armaments leaves space niot only for the Network but also to house an additional squadron of Phantom TIEs and improved power supples for larger engines and more powerful shield generators.
