Wow, didn't realize the 890 jump had a 6000 page count on the RSI forums. Glad to see there is so much interest on this breathtaking ship. I tend to agree with @JoonYoungK and @VoA
I've always seen the 890 and the Phoenix to some extent, as an analog to Lando Calrissian's personal yacht the Lady Luck in the star wars universe. The ship was the ultimate in luxury, and while not heavily armed, had the best of the best in terms of military grade scanners, shields, etc. I purchased my 890 and my Phoenix in the hopes they'd be my own personal Lady Luck.
At the time, Lando's involvement with the mining operation known as Nomad City kept him from tinkering with the starship, but in the years since he repeatedly modified and upgraded Lady Luck.Lando initially planned to transform the Lady Luck into an advanced luxury cruiser. However, Calrissian's near-constant involvement with the New Republic forced him to convert the Lady Luck into a competent combat vehicle. At first glance, the fifty-meter long starship appeared to be an unarmed pleasure yacht, but this placid exterior conceals five retractable laser cannons and a small ion cannon turret. A pair of powerful Chempat-6 deflector shield generators provided moderate protection from enemy fire. Lady Luck's engines were housed in two long engine pods connected to the main hull. Although the starship's sublight and hyperdrive speeds could not match those of the Millennium Falcon, the Lady Luck could still outrace nearly any other luxury vehicle in the galaxy.
The Lady Luck's secondary systems truly set it apart. It had a highly-sophisticated sensor system allowing Lando to detect, identify, and scan approaching vessels at great range. When Lady Luck was scanned by customs officials or enemy forces, the ship's transponder could be programmed with up to three separate false identities that include aliases, fake cargo manifests, and modified system specs. Lando frequently changed these identities, although he has used the alias Stardream on more than one occasion. A droid brain aboard the starship could pilot it in emergencies and direct it towards a beckon call that Lando always kept on his belt; this feature proved especially helpful when Lando, Luke Skywalker, and Han Solo were forced to flee the mining city of Ilic. The starship also had concealed smuggler compartments.
Although the Lady Luck was well-suited to combat, it was still a lavish luxury starship. An entire observation level included an exterior deck and numerous viewports. Lando's private suite and the five visitor cabins were decorated with rare art from around the galaxy. Conform-couches could be found throughout the starship, and the main deck contained a jet-stream meditation pool, and a small crystal garden.
