Revision as of 13:58, December 4, 2010

G'Quan class heavy cruisers were the backbone of the Narn Regime's naval forces up until their defeat by the Centauri Republic in 2259. Ma'Kan Industries located at Wings of G'Lan facility over Narn is responsible for manufactoring this class of vessel.

History

The majority of the G'Quan-class cruisers were destroyed during the Narn-Centauri War, with the greatest losses suffered at the Battle of Gorash VII. In an attempt to destroy the main Centauri supply base, Warleader G'Sten lead an armada made up of the the bulk of the Narn fleet in an all-out frontal assault on a planet called Gorash VII. Unfortunately the planet was guarded by a small fleet of Shadow vessels which intercepted the Narn armada, completely annihilated it and taking only slight damage to one of their vessels. [3]

Despite this, a few Narn cruisers did manage to survive the war, though most were crippled and left to drift during the Centauri's rush to advance on the Narn Homeworld, they were later salvaged by the resistance, often requiring one ship to be cannibalised to repair another. Only the G'Tok was left fully functional, thanks to the intervention of Babylon 5 forces and it would later play a key role in the war against the Shadows. [4] [5]

Following the liberation of Narn from Centauri rule in 2261, the Narns quickly began to rebuild their fleet, and within a few years many new G'Quan-class cruisers had been placed into service. [6]

Behind the Scenes

"I wanted it to look simple from afar, almost as if you were looking at a fighter, but as you got closer you got the feeling that the ship was immense."
– Paul Bryant interview for B5Scrolls

The G'Quan class was designed by Computer Imaging Supervisor and Foundation Imaging Co-founder Paul Bryant. The design was intended to echo the shape of the Narn fighter that had already been developed by Ron Thornton while the striped hull markings were meant to reflect tribal art and war paint.[10] The G'Quan first appeared in the episode "Revelations" as a replacement for the more rushed design of Narn cruiser used in the first season and would continue to be used as the primary Narn ship all the way through the rest of B5, into Crusade and a rebuilt version even appeared in the "The Lost Tales" DVD movie.
