The Nebula-Class Star Destroyer is the largest warship in the New Republic's "New Class" modernization program. The ships were to serve as the backbone of a new, unified fleet to help The New Republic establish its territories and defend it's new borders. Because of it's long design period and high cost, relatively few of the ships had been completed by the time of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, and political pressure kept them close to The Core Worlds as reserves. Once the ships finally saw combat, they acquitted themselves quite well against the extragalactic invaders.
A Nebula-Class Star Destroyer can take on anything short of a Super Star Destroyer and is designed to act as a respectable threat even to those adversaries. Coupled with the support ships that almost always accompany it and the ship's own complement of craft, a Nebula-Class can face down any threat short of a massed armada.
A variant, the Endurance-Class Fleet Carrier, also exists. It trades the Heavy Turbolasers, all but two Turbolaser Batteries, half the Tractor Beams, the Ion Cannons, and 1 month of consumables for the ability to carry an additional two wings of Starfighters and four Batteries of Point-Defense Laser Cannons.

Tactical Fire Edit
The mere presence of a Nebula-Class Star Destroyer can turn the tide of battle, thanks to it's impressive fire support. As a Standard Action, a Nebula-Class Star Destroyer can forgo all attacks to provide Tactical Fire to all squares in a 2-square radius around itself. All attacks made against a Starship of Colossal (Frigate) size or larger within that area deal triple damage on a Critical Hit. If the attack would normally deal triple damage on a Critical Hit, it deal four times as much damage instead.
