The Dreadnaught-class Heavy Cruiser The Judge (ID# 492152), first saw action over 17 years ago. At the time, the Dreadnaught-class Heavy Cruiser were no longer considered very advanced by comparison to other ship designs. As such this ship's comissioning by President Dunkler Klerus of the New Anzat Order was considered an unusual move. It was rumored at the time that The Judge had a special, secret purpose for the NAO president. While neither the New Anzat Order, nor it's successor, the Anzatan CommonWealth, exist, The Judge has remained, due in large part to its unique paint scheme, said to be derived from President Klerus' favorite colors.
The Judge formed a core part of the New Anzat Order's primary defense fleet. It was frequently trotted out for public relations events and, whenever the New Anzat Order required a show of force, the Judge was sure to be a member of the assembled fleet. However, the Judge was far more than a military vessel. It was a vessel of considerable political importance. This was all concealed during the era of the New Anzat Order, but there were rumors even then that the Judge was a prison ship. Many of NAO's political prisoners were held there, and numerous political dissidents may have been executed there. However, with the fall of NAO, the Judge was left adrift. Abandoned by her crew, it is rumored that dozens of prisoners died from starvation adrift in space.
Abandoned for over ten years, the Judge drifted through space, doing no more than cause minor panic attacks to smugglers unfortunate to stumble upon the hulk. However, the Judge was not destined to be adrift in space forever. A small group of mercenaries down on their luck, who styled themselves the "Executioners", stumbled upon the Judge. They immediately sensed the opportunity. The Executioners seized the floating hulk and immediately turned the Judge into their home in the skies. Operating a squadron of Razor-Class Starfighters out of the hangar and an elite commando team on the ground, the Executioners became a known name in the mercenary community.
As the home of the Executioners, the Judge became known for the menacing prow paint job and the fearsome warriors it carried. However, it shot to Galactic attention for its final mission with the Executioners. A civil war was raging among the Dugs of Malastare and the Executioners were called in to aid warlord Excertev Malvo, leader of one of the warring factions. Malvo was decidedly the underdog in the engagement, so the Executioners had to disrupt his enemies blockade of the planet. The enemy warlord, Mito Anotever, took his entire fleet into action. Hundreds of fighters, Gunboats and light freighters descended on the Judges defenses, while dozens of transports attempted to board the ship, while Anotever sat back and watched from his Lictor. The Executioners could not fend off such a flood of enemies. The ship was boarded, set on fire, and heavily mauled. In the bridge, the Executioners leader and their chief pilot made a bold and suicidal decision. Despite the heavy blaster fire raging around them, they managed to accelerate the Judge to her full speed, and set her on a course to broadside ram Anotever's Lictor. They were both killed in the fighting shortly thereafter, but Anotevers mercenaries were unable to disable the ships navigational AI in time. The Judge rammed Anotever's Lictor at full throttle. The impact split the Lictor in half, but the Judge, while suffering heavy damage, did not explode or fracture. A holonet photographer captured the image of the Judge ramming the Lictor. Sticking out both sides of the fractured and burning Lictor, the battered Judge looked on the victor of the engagement. The Lictor was lost with all hands. Anotever's fall ended the war in favor of Malvo and Malastare was at peace once more. The Holonet blew up with the image of the Dreadnaught splitting the Lictor in half, earning the Judge a place in military history.
The Judge was finally salvaged recently, after Malvo rebuilt parts of Malastare's ship building infrastructure. Once it was restored, he planned on turning it into a memorial for the brave Executioner mercenaries who had won him the war. However, strapped for cash due to the rebuilding process, Malvo was forced to sell the Judge. She was purchased by a ship wholesaler named Teresa Rowley who planned to auction her to the public.
