STARSHIP - The Moonshadow

Wishing to capitalize on the success of it’s durable YT transport series, the Corellian Engineering Corporation designed the SE series to be a versatile companion and cheaper alternative to CEC’s standard stock light freighter line. The SE-1001’s basic design intentionally evokes the classic hammerhead look of the ubiquitous Corellian Corvette and share’s many of it’s larger cousin’s multi-purpose design innovations. While the SE courier lacks the sheer toughness and cargo capacity of the YT, it’s large drive section and dual maneuvering thrusters give it enough power to outfly most other starships in its class.

The SE courier never approached the popularity of the YT, and Corellian Engineering discontinued the line after only a few decades of production. Never a company to waste a functional idea, CEC eventually adapted some of the SE’s design into it’s GS class courier which drew its inspiration from CEC’s diplomatic cruiser and gunboat class vessels.

Rik Duel’s ship began life as the “Splendid IX,” and according to Imperial records served in the diplomatic corps of Lord Tion of Ralltiir. Although Duel claims that the “Splendid IX” was awarded to him in exchange for some duty performed for Lord Tion prior to his death, official records list the starship as stolen and note a 7500 credit bounty on Duel’s head. Duel is a fair pilot at best, and he leaves care of the ship to his friend Chihdo who has upgraded the shield generators and keeps the engines humming and clean.
