This was the first truly military starship designed by the Mon Calamari. They were more modular than the MC80-series, designed to be more consistent with other, non-MC-class starships. The ship's displays were given multiple wavelength settings so that other species could read them. The MC90 had an improved drive system, increased shielding, and better maneuverability. The power generators were upgraded, and interior cargo space was expanded for carrying more starfighters. The Defiance was the first MC90 to see action, during the first Battle of Calamari. These 1,255-meter ships were manned by 5,860 crewmen and 605 gunners, and could transport up to 1,700 troops. They were armed with 75 turbolaser batteries, 30 ion cannon batteries, 8 tractor beam projectors, and 6 proton torpedo/missile tubes. -Source: Unofficial Star Wars Encyclopedia

Unfortunately, we Imperials must acknowledge that the Quarren and Mon Calamari who crew these ships are superior spacefarers. For this reason, it was clear that Mon Calamari must be attacked either in an effort to subdue the species and cripple their manufacturing capability, or to exterminate the species. Sadly, the Mon Calamari and Quarren would not listen to reason, and chose to resist, hence the Battle of Mon Calamari and the unfortunate use of World Devastators. In the end the Mon Calamari triumphed, an improbable coincidence... just what the Mon Calamari and the Rebels seem good at.
