Summary
Corellian Engineering Corporation, abbreviated CEC and originally called Corellian Engineering Corps, was one of the three largest starship manufacturers. This corporation was widely considered the most prolific starship manufacturer in the galaxy. CEC, whose shipyards were located in the Corellian system, owed much of its success to the abnormally high numbers of skilled designers, engineers, and shipwrights the system produced. The shipyards were well known for their modular freighters which could be upgraded for combat with both legal and illegal after-market kits. These popular freighters ranged from the YG-series first made centuries before the Battle of Yavin to the VCX series produced shortly before the Yuuzhan Vong War. During the rule of the Eternal Empire, the Corellian Engineering Corporation was rumoured to be developing an experimental stealth technology for a mysterious buyer. Unlike the company's main competitors (Kuat Drive Yards and Sienar Fleet Systems), CEC relied almost solely on civilian sales rather than military contracts. Even so, CEC's reputation for solid spaceframes and excellent engines meant that it was often subcontracted to build warships using other companies' designs - Star Destroyers built by CEC had a reputation for being the fastest ships in the Imperial Navy, both at sublight and hyperspace speeds. The smuggler Han Solo boasted of having outrun such ships.
