Homebrew Reference Book: New Jedi Order Campaign Guide
The Ro'ik Chuun M'arh is a frigate analog used by The Yuuzhan Vong Empire as a picket and long-range reconnaissance ship. A flexible vessel that fulfills a number of roles in combat, the Ro'ik Chuun M'arh Frigate is a vital part of the Yuuzhan Vong warfleet. Created from living yorik coral, the Ro'ik Chuun M'arh is the equivalent of a New Republic Nebulon-B Frigate or an Imperial Lancer-Class Frigate.
A fully-grown Ro'ik Chuun M'arh could reach 440 meters in length, significantly larger than its mechanical equivalents, but most documented vessels of this type were significantly smaller. The Gift of Anguish was around 200 meters long, and Nom Anor's personal ship The Ksstarr was around 150 meters. The eight frigates that fought in the fleet of Supreme Commander Komm Karsh in the Second Battle of Obroa-skai were also around this size.
The Ro'ik Chuun M'arh Frigate is highly adaptable during combat, able to take on a multitude of diverse missions. In battle, it could serve as an assault vessel, or an escort for larger ships, or provide battle support to wounded vessels. Away from the front line, it was capable of serving as a long-range reconnaissance ship, a courier for high-ranking individuals, a cargo transport, troop carrier, or patrol picket. In the last three roles, the frigate often carries Yorik-trema Transport, each capable of carrying one hundred warriors, either to the surface of a planet or to board another Starship.
