a huge, umbrella-shaped craft used to shield spacecraft from the heat of Nkllon's sun. It was one of the first creations of the Republic Engineering Corporation. The design specifications were originally formed by Lando Calrissian. It is basically a curved, 800-meter dish on top, with a 400-meter long cylinder extending from the bottom. The underside of the dish is packed with various cooling systems, while the cylinder contains the main drive. The shieldships proved to be hard to pilot, because of their unique configuration and the rigors of keeping the large ships in place to protect smaller craft. Also, due to the harsh conditions in which they operation, shieldships require constant maintenance of their shields and cooling systems. Lando originally purchased twelve shieldships, allowing him to make three trips from the shieldship depot on Qat Chrystac to Nkllon per day. This allowed plenty of downtime for the repairs necessary to keep the ships running well. After the destruction of Nomad City by Grand Admiral Thrawn, no other shieldships have been built.
