Capsule: Following the establishment of the New Republic, the need for private transport defense from a rise in space piracy and residual imperial forces prompted a need for armed tramp freighters. The New Republic issued a supplemental type certificate (STC) to SoroSuub shortly after the battle of Endor making this ship legal to arm with weapons. SoroSuub used the original Nestt prototype design which was rejected by the empire to build this new production model. The New Republic edition is identical in its interior layout to the original Nestt save the following changes:
1. The 1X hyperdrive was replaced with a slower, smaller, lighter and less power-hungry 2X hyperdrive.
2. A high-performance power core comes as standard equipment, allowing for many upgrades.
3. A dorsal turret has been mounted in the upper forward deck with a fully equipped gunnery station.
4. The Nestt now comes equipped with a heavy laser cannon from the factory, and can be upgraded with an assortment of other weapons without restrictive power limitations.
