*: The ship and it's pilot are symbiotic, with the ship itself having the following skills. Astrogation: 9D, Capital Ship Piloting: 6D, Capital Ship Gunnery: 7D, Capital Ship Repair: 8D, Capital Ship Weapon Repair: 7D, Sensors 9D.
**: Normally the ship would have a crew numbering in the thousands, but one symbiotically linked pilot can easily control the ship.
***: Each round the ship can make a repair roll to regenerate damage received in combat, which makes the ship extremely tough in combat, although this regeneration may be overwhelmed by damage received.
****: Anti-matter pods were the main weapons of Ship. When they came in contact with a target, it instantly disintegrated. Apparently, anti-matter pods were also used to contain antimatter used as fuel in certain hyperdrives. Once fired they can't be stopped, similar to a turbolaser, however antimatter could be fired in pure energy form with equal firepower. Anti-matter pods were not used anywhere in the galaxy.
Antimatter pods are small enough to be used on Starfighters, yet damaging enough to take out Capital ships. The ship has numerous launchers capable of firing dozens of Antimatter pods at multiple targets at the same time from an almost inexhaustible magazine of pods which replenish from manufacturing centers deep within the vessel.

Description: Ship was an organic, sentient spacecraft that dwelled in solitude in the intergalactic void.
Ship was at one time two separate beings, a pilot and a mecho-organic vessel, who participated in a war in an unknown galaxy. The ship and her crew were the only survivors of the last battle of the war and returned home only to find that their enemy, as a final gesture, had unleashed a deadly plague bomb on the crew's home planet, killing the entire population. Only one crew member survived the plague and returned to the ship fleeing the galaxy to the starless void, beyond the reach of the plague. Over time the pilot and ship fused to become a single being which existed in solitude, playing games with itself for amusement through the years.
Ship absorbed the craft piloted by Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa when they accidentally traveled beyond their home galaxy to the void, and Ship thought they were players in one of his games. However, when Luke defeated a game character in lightsaber combat, Ship realized that they were actually real people, and tried to expel them from itself fearing them to be enemies. Ship reconsidered when it saw that Luke and Leia cared for each other, as it remembered what it was like to care about someone and allowed them to stay on board. It brought the pair back to their home galaxy where they found an Imperial Star Destroyer waiting there and it opened fire upon Ship. Ship felt pain for the first time in eons, and realized that the Imperials weren't playing games either. In retaliation, it deployed anti-matter pods which destroyed the Imperial craft the instant they made contact. After repairing their craft, it released Luke and Leia to continue on their way, and Ship returned to its home in the void as it preferred its own games to the painful reality of war.
Mecho-organic vessels were part machine/part living spacecraft made by a race from another galaxy. The vessels existed in a state of symbiosis with their computer and pilot.
The vessels fought in a bloody war until only one, which became known simply as Ship, survived. Ship returned its crew to their homeworld only to find the planet's population wiped out by a plague bomb. Ship's crew all fell victim to the plague except for the pilot, who managed to return to Ship and flee his homeworld and, indeed, his home galaxy. In time, the pilot, Ship, and the computer lost their distinctiveness within their symbiotic bond and became practically a single mind.
