Edge of the Empire
Capital ships were large and powerful warships. Types of capital ships included Star Destroyers and battleships. They were the typical vessel types used in major space battles.
Although imposing, capital ships were also slow and ponderous in spaceflight. Due to this, the New Republic, following the Galactic Civil War, was able to, over time, pick off most of the Galactic Empire's capital ships by overwhelming them with smaller, nimbler vessels.
