So, for lack of better words, the 5th Fleet is a complete mess of inconsistencies and fact checking errors. It has proven to be one of the biggest modeling headaches, and I wish to explain why, just so everyone is aware of the efforts we have placed into creating it for everyone.
Originally, the entire 5th Fleet Modernization Program was proposed as a fleet all built off of the same modular hull. Larger ships would have more modules, smaller ships less. This idea, allowed for the ships to be built faster, cost less, and be repaired more easily since they all shared interchangeable parts. The entire fleet was originally concepted to be built off of the Defender-Class Star Destroyer.
Then some one thought up and designed the Nebula Class, and everyone at Star Wars High Command fell in love with this ship. So, they cancelled and scratched the idea of the Defender, and simply stated that all the ships designs were modular pairs, meaning that the entire 5th fleet was built upon pairs, every 2 ships shared the same hull, allowing the great idea to thrive while introducing the new pretty and shiny Nebula.
Sounds good right...? WRONG!!!!! Cracken's Ship Dossier was already published, and it included the Majestic, and Cruiser with different aft and bow components built onto the middle section of the Defender Class, AND they had a sketch of the Endurance, which was entirely built from the Defender with a new bow, and some type of crazy alien head thing...
In Addition to this, the Comics based upon the Vong War started using Cracken's source as canon and started publishing issues that featured the Defender-Class Star Destroyer...
Well, this spawned a good debate until until of the Star Wars Essential Guides published a colorized version of the Nebula-Class, crowning it as the king of the New Republic 5th fleet. The Defender-Class was then officially told to be forgotten about.
EXCEPT FOR THE UGlY Endurance.... (to be continued down below)
