The Blade Barrier served as a heavy defensive ship stationed in orbit of victim planets. These craft would remain in orbit and blockade all craft from entering the atmosphere. Once deployed these large stations can unleash powerful beams and racks of missiles, making them equally deadly to capital ships and fighters. The craft's only known weakness is its mobile state, or attacking it from the surface of a planet.
