The Lusankya is The Executor's sister ship, with keel and final rivet finished at the same time as Vader's flagship. By having all expenses for The Lusankya attributed to construction of The Executor, the Empire kept the existence of the second Super Star Destroyer secret from the galaxy at large. The Lusankya was covered in a superframe of girders and electronics, then lowered onto Coruscant disguised as a massive planetary shield generator and it's repulsorlift cradle. The fact that a Super Star Destroyer was at the heart of the "Generator" was kept secret, allowing The Lusankya to serve as a secret prison facility. Exactly why the Emperor went to such great lengths to hide a Super Star Destroyer is unknown, though it's certainly possible that he intended the ship to serve as an emergency command vessel, should his throne world ever come under seige.
As events occured, The Lusankya was used by intelligence officer Ysanne Isard to flee Coruscant after the Emperor's death. She built a command group around the ship and engaged in such gambits as the Bacta War. Eventually she was defeated and killed, and The Lusankya entered the service of The New Republic. For twenty years the ship acted as a medical research and quarantine ship, a research vessel, and the command ship of an extensively built-up Rogue Squadron. During the Yuuzhan Vong Invasion, The Lusankya suffered extensive damage and was stripped of weapons and turned into a suicide weapon to destroy the largest Vong Koros-Strohna Worldship.
Though The Lusankya had fewer heavy weapons than a typical Super Star Destroyer, it uses the saved space for extensive personnel quarters. It needs less overall crew and has superior computers (An advantage of constantly receiving computer upgrades while hidden within Coruscant), but can carry more troops and thousands of prisoners. With the addition of Point-Defense Laser Cannons, The Lusankya is perfectly equipped to single-handedly smash through a planet's defenses and take command of its major cities. Unlike other Super Star Destroyers, which rely on support ships to some degree, The Lusankya is by itself enough to forge a new, if small, multiplanet government.
