    Greetings gentlebeings!

    I'm hoping to kick off a group project where we can compile and catalogue all the named capital ships in the new canon. There is alot of information out there, some of it already compiled on the Wookieepedia, some of it remaining to be cataloged. The name of the thread comes from Legends, so if you're an Ayddar Nylykerka at heart or a fellow Fleet Junkie, please pop in and join the project. :-B

    A few notes:
    1. Our initial focus will be on Rebel Alliance/New Republic warships, as well as Imperial warships.
    2. If the thread has legs and we complete the first two categories, it can be expanded to include other powers, such as the First Order or Resistance.
    3. Non-combat vessels that are part of the navies above (think GR75 transports) are part of this list. I'm forgoing ships in the light freighter size.
    4. Where a specific class is not provided but a general type is named, I have included it. (Ex: Alderaanian frigate, Imperial attack cruiser, Corellian assault frigate, etc)
    5. A few classes are lumped for ease. At this point, this includes MC80 cruisers, the Imperial-class, and Super Star Destroyers. This was done because the vast majority of these three ships, especially the Star Destroyers, don't have specific sub-types confirmed in canon.
    6. When posting a ship not on my initial list, please reference the source. I've got a master spreadsheet I'm creating, so I'll note the sources there.
    7. For my initial list, if you are unclear/unsure about the source for each vessel, I can gladly point you to the reference.
    8. ONLY confirmed canon sources can be used. The only "gray area" we'll allow initially is the novelizations.
    My initial list below is not fully comprehensive. I focused initially on the main starship classes/most common in the new canon, so please start suggesting new classes that I missed. We will not add a canon class until it has a named ship in it, but I am open to adding a category that includes named ships without a specific class/type confirmed.

    At least once a week, I will go through the thread and add the newly confirmed ships to the list in the opening post. That way it will be an easy reference for anyone using this thread. Eventually, assuming we get a robust list and tackle all the main canon organizations/governments, we could even expand the list to include whether the vessel is active or destroyed. However, that is something that I don't foresee us cataloguing for awhile, but the potential is there.

    An excellent project! Just to include some vessels off the top of my head, there's the Imperial-class Star Destroyers Authority (from Rebel Rising) and Perilous (from Lords of the Sith), the Imperial escort carrier Goliath (from Tarkin), and the Arquitens-class light cruiser Tellstar (the communications ship from S1 of Rebels). At the risk of muddying the waters a bit with an ambiguously canon source, FFG Armada also includes a number of named ships for canon vessels (Hammerhead corvette, Arquitens light cruiser, Quasar Fire light carrier, etc.). I'm not sure if you want to include FFG ships, only those expansion packs related to specifically canon vessels, or just avoid the thorny issue altogether, but if you do want to explore that option I've been maintaining a list myself.

    Again, this is a great project. If I could make just one small recommendation, it might be a good idea to put the list in alphabetical order. That way, it's much quicker to check the lists to see if a ship is mentioned rather than having to go through the whole thing (especially once it starts getting longer).

    I thought that the Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier used by Phoenix Squadron was now called Phoenix Nest?

    Tsk, tsk. Your bias is showing, Nick. All the missing ones seem to be Imperial vessels! Speaking of which, there's also the Immobilizer 418 cruiser Glaciate from On the Front Lines, the ISD Herald from Twilight Company, the ISD Adjudicator from the Cymoon arc of Marvel Star Wars, and Admiral Motti's ISD Steel Talon, which his Databank entry of all places has recanonised.

    Thanks guys! I'll admit, my forte is much more on Rebel/New Republic vessels, but the Imperial list is trickiest as Star Destroyers are the most commonly named vessels in the new canon. Probably the old canon as well. I'm working on getting an update put together today that incorporates all the names you listed, plus alphabetizes them.

    Don't forget, named vessels that lack a class can be included in a "misc" bucket. I haven't added it yet, but examples would be the NR troop transports Rieekan and the Rebel warship Deviant from the RO novelization.

    Very nice list indeed, great work. I believe the Grand Admiral caught all of the Imperial ones I thought were missing at first glance. Like you say, may want to throw in a sub-category of canon ship classes that do not have an official named ship in it. For the Empire, that would just be the Praetor-class Star Battlecruiser (SW:Complete Locations) and the Qaz-class Star Destroyer (Catalyst) off the top of my head.

    EDIT: Also technically maybe add the Death Star as well on the Imperial list

    For the time being, until a named class receives a named warship, I'm gonna leave it out. This is why I left out ships like the Victory-class or Sullustan ring-ship. At least for the first stage of this project.

    What about classes with a named member but no class name? There's the unknown support carrier class from Tarkin with the Goliath .

    As I noted above, they will either be listed in a miscellaneous bucket OR listed under the generic name we get. Hence why the Imperial "attack cruiser" Garrote from Lost Stars is listed under that generic class name.

    FYI- updated list is now included in the first post. New ships added, alphabetized as well. :D

    Maybe the Home One and Nautilian could be grouped into "Home One-type MC-80" to emphasis their difference from the Liberty-type?

    I considered this, but then we would have a third "generic MC80" category. Ditto with ISD's, as many don't have a specific type listed. I'm open to it as this evolve, but for now I'm using group categories for those types of ships.

    Adding ISD Lawbringer from Star Wars Rebels. Also adding troop transport Rieekan from Bloodline and the unknown Rebel warship Deviant from RO novelization.

    I think a easy way to note ships that have been destroyed would be the † symbol.

    Do Taylander shuttles count? The early rebellion seems to have used quite a few of them as transports. If so, the Chandrilla Mistress was Mon Mothma's vessel in Rebels.

    Hmm, we could, though that opens up a lot of transports we could use. Given how common they are with the Rebellion, it does seem to be a good one to add. Regarding whether the vessel is destroyed or not, we can totally add that down the line!

    Mon Cal cruisers are pretty distinctly of 3 different classes in RotJ, so makes sense to group them as such, at least as a subset, and then have unknowns just as MC-80.
    May also be worth noting commanding officer(s) where possible.

    Yeah, I definitely want to incorporate specific types into this list at one point. Not just for the MC80's, but for the ISD's too. I suspect most ISD's will not have a specific type defined, but it would be cool to start building that out.

    Regarding named vessels without a class, the RO novelisation also includes the Heartbound for the Rebel Alliance.

    Based on @AdmiralWesJanson suggestion, I've broken out the MC80's to specify which are Home One or Liberty-type, plus added the Rebel warship Heartbound to the unknown ship category.

    If anyone wants to help me break down the various ISD's into Imperial-I and Imperial-II, you're efforts will be appreciated. :)

    Super excited for On the Front Lines by Dan Wallace, coming out next Tuesday! The preview alone added the Glaciate and Striking Distance to the list of named ships, I'm really hoping that he names some more of the warships at Scarif and Endor. :D

    Updated today, adding the Hammerhead-class corvette Consonance to the list. This is the one that survives Rogue One, with blue markings.

    List is missing Thrawn's first posting, the Gozanti Blood Crow , from the novel Thrawn.
