Summary
The Redemption was an EF76 Nebulon-B escort frigate in service to the Rebel Alliance Fleet. Originally a standard Nebulon-B frigate, it was heavily modified to serve as the fleet's primary medical frigate during the Galactic Civil War. The ship was fitted with the most advanced medical equipment available, including bacta tanks, operating theaters capable of treating multiple species, and a full complement of medical droids. The Redemption could treat up to 745 patients simultaneously and 98% made a full recovery, with most returning to duty within days. These changes came at the expense of its defensive capabilities, with several of the vessel's weapons removed, along with its starfighter complement. The ship traveled with the Alliance Fleet, often into combat situations, and saw action several times, including the Ison Corridor ambush, the Battle of Eidoloni, and the Battle of Kothlis. Following his duel with Darth Vader in Cloud City, Luke Skywalker received treatment aboard the Redemption at the Rebel rendezvous point. It later joined the Alliance Fleet gathering near Sullust in preparation to assault the second Death Star in the Endor system. However, the Redemption was destroyed during the Battle of Endor when the rogue assassin droid IG-88A, secretly in control of the Death Star, used the battlestation's superlaser against it.
