Description: The Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier, also known as the Quasar Fire-class bulk cruiser, or simply, the Imperial light carrier, was a starship line built by the SoroSuub Corporation. It saw service in the Galactic Empire's Imperial Navy, both as a starfighter carrier and a mobile base of operations.

The Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier[2] was built by the SoroSuub Corporation,[1] a Sullust-based shipwright corporation.[7] Its triangular structure made it similar to other dagger-shaped Imperial spacecraft, including Star Destroyers. Unlike Star Destroyers, however the bridge was located at the frontal point and the hangars at the base.[6] The structural integrity of the Quasar Fire spaceframe was questionable, being subject to micro-fractures while reverting from hyperspace to realspace. This much was alleged by a report issued by Mid-Rim Shipwrights.[8]

The four hangar bays had space to accommodate up to 48 starfighters,[8] however, some Imperial light carriers operated with as few as eight TIE/sa bombers.[6] The Empire used such carriers in orbit of occupied planets, allowing for easy dispatch of fighters whenever necessary.[2]

The Empire deployed two different variants of the Quasar Fire: the Quasar Fire I-class and the Quasar Fire II-class.[4]

In the year 3 BBY,[9] the Spectres, alongside Cham Syndulla of the Free Ryloth movement, stole a Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier in orbit of Ryloth for the rebellion.[6]

The stolen ship became the flagship of Phoenix Cell of the early rebellion, rechristened the Phoenix Nest, housing their RZ-1 A-wing interceptors, and even being repainted to show its new affiliation.[6] After coming under attack by Imperial forces, the starship fled with the rest of the rebel fleet to the planet Atollon.[10] After the formation of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, it became part of the Alliance Fleet, with Colonel Anj Zavor recommending to Mon Mothma the procurement of more escort carriers from the Empire.[8] However, the Phoenix Nest would be destroyed at the Battle of Atollon, sacrificed by its commander, Jun Sato.[5]

Years later, during the New Republic's siege of the Kuat Drive Yards, Blade Squadron attacked and destroyed a light carrier during the final stages of the battle.[11]
