Game Notes: An older Star Destroyer design, possibly a a one off variant, crippled during the Battle of Scariff and taken over by Crimson Jack. Refitted with help from his Hutt Allies, the vessel would have required many thousands of crew to operate normally, but Jack operated the vessel on a Skeleton Crew, moving crew between Fighter operations, flight and weapons as required. Using the vessel mainly as a mobile carrier for his fighters.
In game terms, this means that the vessel will never be able to operate all of it's systems at the same time, if it is launching fighters, then it won't be able to move on full speed, only limping along, and will only be able to fire 1 or 2 of it's weapons, one of which Jack usually makes sure is the Tractor Beam. It can fire all weapons, again at the expense of it's  Speed, and fighters, or it can move freely, at expense of weapons and fighters.

Description: This former Imperial battlecruiser was in operation as a pirate vessel during the early years of the Galactic Civil War.

The ship was driven by four main engines and a possible fifth, though this center engine appeared to be covered by armor at times, and might have functioned only as an auxiliary engine for emergencies. The hull was sleeker and more rounded than the Imperial-class Star Destroyers, and the main body was much more flat, with a protruding bulb towards the dorsal front of the ship.

The ship was damaged during a battle with the Rebel Alliance, and left adrift. After the battle, it was discovered by the space pirate Crimson Jack and his gang, who proceeded to kill the remaining crew members and use the vessel as their own base of operations. They repaired and modified the ship with backing from Jabba the Hutt.

They captured the Millennium Falcon with a tractor beam, and were lured to the planet Drexel where Han Solo claimed a secret Rebel treasury would be found. This venture turned out to be a trap and a failure for Crimson Jack, as his ship was permanently damaged when his second-in-command, Jolli, betrayed him and rammed the ship's command tower with her Y-wing starfighter.

The hulk was left to drift in orbit of Drexel, where it was found by Jabba's agents some time later. They recovered data from the ship's computer that revealed Solo's involvement in its destruction. Jabba furiously reposted the bounty on Solo that had been revoked some time earlier.

I read somewhere that this kind of Imperial warship is referred to as a Praetor-class Battlecruiser.

While the ships from the comics might find new life under new names elsewhere in Star Wars, I'm not convinced this is the case here.

The Praetor-class battlecruiser is 4000 meters long, so would be absolutely massive in comparison to Crimson Jack's ship. While the two do appear fairly similar in design (as opposed to the Praetor 2, which is completely different), I don't think this is a Praetor.
