"What's so special about the Providence? No upgrades, no armor reinforcements? How can you expect to last in a dogfight?"

"It's not always about firepower... It's about the symbol and what it represents."

-Admiral James Anderson and a ship inspector


The Providence was a Venator-class Star Destroyer that was captained by Admiral James Anderson and co-captained by Lieutenant Commander CT-87/11557 "Shortstop" during the years of the Clone Wars.

Before the Clone Wars, the Providence originally belonged to an unnamed Republic Navy officer, who performed numerous feats with the ship before retiring, thus, earning the ship great renown. It is unknown what name the ship went by during its service under this unidentified man.

BiographyEdit

Following his graduation from G.N.O.A and promotion to Captain, James named his newly-assigned flagship, a Republic Star Destroyer, the "Providence". In tribute to the man who once used the Providence, James decided not to upgrade the ship in any form or way.

It saw action during the Third Battle of Kamino, where it assisted the Republic blockade in fending off the invading Separatist ships.

The Providence later transported an entire battalion of SCUBA Troopers to the Mon Calamari system to help the locals in a civil war against their neighbours, the Quarren.
