Conquest was an Executor-class Imperial Star Destroyer that was hijacked by the Spectrum around 2 ABY. It was used as the Spectrum's flagship until its destruction in 11 ABY.
Conquest was originally constructed by the Galactic Empire immediately after Executor had begun on its own construction phases. It was created over the planet Fondor, the same planet that Executor was constructed at. It was originally believed that only Lusankya and Executor were constructed at the same time.
Like Lusankya, Conquest was not immediately sent into military action. It was hidden in Deep Space, away from most civilized star systems. It was supposed to be a last resort for the Empire if the Executor was ever destroyed.
For a little over a year, Conquest was hidden away. But because of pirates and the Rebellion, it was sent into action around 1.5 ABY. It did not participate in any battles, and was not well-known.
A pirate group entitled Spectrum had known about Conquest's position for some time. They had assembled a strike force consisting of over two hundred small starfighters and around two dozen shuttles, carrying a few dozen troops each, to attack Conquest. The fleet assembled in a stretch of space between Munto Codru and Mon Calamari, and hyperspaced to their destination of Byss, preparing to attack Conquest.
Conquest was orbiting Byss with three other Imperial Star Destroyers when it was attacked. The swarm of fighters coming in on it was massive, and continued flying. Conquest fired off several warning shots, but it could not destroy all of the targets. The ships flew in and took out several of its turbolaser batteries. Its shields followed, and then the shuttles came in and invaded the ship.
With around 2,000 heavily armed troops and several other droids, the invading forces of Spectrum were victorious. The other three Imperial battleships fired on their own ship, trying to damage its engines. They succeeded, but Conquest was still operational. Spectrum forces invaded the command deck and took over control, then hyperspaced out to Deep Space.
Service with the SpectrumEdit
The Spectrum fixed Conquest up well, refueling it, replacing and fixing damaged turbolaser batteries, updating its hyperdrive systems, and fixing its engines. This entire job took around a quarter year, and then Conquest was officially the flagship of the Spectrum.
They raided Imperial outposts with Conquest, and also several other pirate outposts. The Spectrum had one main goal; to conquer the galaxy.
Destruction of ConquestEdit
Commander, we're reading energy fluctuations from that star... It appears to be detonating!
—An unknown Spectrum officer on board Conquest.
Hiding in the Cauldron Nebula, the Spectrum had been losing many battles, taking heavy casualties, and being destroyed piece by piece. With Conquest being one of their last ships, it was the most well hidden, right inside the Cauldron Nebula. They did not know of Admiral Daala's fleet - which was on the other side of the Nebula - because of energy fluctuations coming from the great mass of energy.
Kyp Durron, piloting the Sun Crusher, had fired seven resonance torpedoes straight into the Nebula and its stars, causing them to detonate. Conquest was unaware of Kyp's presence, and was obliterated by the supernova, along with the Spectrum itself.
