Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Starships of the Galaxy
The Hapan Battle Dragon is the primary Capital Ship of the Hapes Consortium. Because of the consortium's long isolation, Hapan technology developed along somewhat different lines from that of the rest of the galaxy. This unusual technology in turn drove the development of the Battle Dragon, a ship built with two disclike hull sections and rotating weapon tracks running around the outer hull.
Early Hapan Battle Dragons had extremely limiting targeting computers, designed to lock onto only a single vessel at a time. Attempts to fire at more than one target in the same round result in a -10 penalty on all attack rolls. Later Battle Dragons are updated to more modern technology, and don't suffer this drawback. Further, Hapan Turbolasers had a slow recharge rate (Preventing them from firing more often than once every 3 rounds), though again these were later updated.

Mass Pulse Mines Edit
One advantage Battle Dragons had from their earliest encounters was the use of Mass Pulse Mines. A Mass Pulse Mine prevents ships in a 4-square radius from entering Hyperspace. A Mass Pulse Mine can be dropped at any point in a Battle Dragon's movement, and it functions for 10 minutes.
Tactical Fire Edit
The Hapan Battle Dragon is exceptionally good at falling upon prey and keeping it from escaping. As a Standard Action, a Hapan Battle Dragon can forgo all attacks to provide Tactical Fire to all squares in a 2-square radius around itself. All enemy Starships within that area have their Starship Scale speed reduced by 1 square (To a minimum of 1 square).
