The Viscount-class Star Defender was a very large warship developed by the Mon Calamari for use by the New Republic Defense Fleet.

The Viscount-class Star Defender was envisioned as the New Republic equivalent of an Executor-class Star Dreadnought. As such, it measured almost twice as much as the Mediator-class battle cruiser.

Although slightly shorter in length than the Executor-class, the superior construction skills of the Mon Calamari enabled the vessel to carry more starfighters, as well as having a substantially smaller crew. Its shape was also more compact than the Executor-class and it had heavier and more extensive armor. Dozens of docking clamps allowed the vessel to directly dock with many other capital ships at the same time.

The Viscount-class was equipped with over five thousand weapons systems, including heavy turbolaser batteries and assault concussion missile launchers. The Viscount's shields had backups, like previous Calamari designs, and were thus highly regenerative. The computers, electronic equipment and sensor systems were above and beyond those of an Imperial Star Dreadnought and it carried a HoloNet transceiver.

Ships of the class could carry hundreds of starfighters, as well as dozens of small support vessels, including frigate-sized ships. The class was also fitted with enough life pods to carry the crews of the ship itself, and also those of whatever smaller support vessels were carried at the time. This totaled a passenger-capacity of 500,000 individuals. The ship was also equipped with enough repair droids to cover the entire vessel during emergency repairs.

To support wounded in combat, the Viscount-class had hundreds of self-replenishing bacta tanks in its medical wings. It also had fighter repair bays, in these bays they would repair fighters and also maintain them.
