sv11a (U): Black Squadron/Black Leader TIE Advanced - Lietenant Tanbris specialized in directing Imperial starfighters and was the executive officer of Black Squadron. Before an injury grounded him, he flew an improved version of the TIE Advanced craft assigned to the unit.
sv11b (U): Belt-Runner/Anakin Solo's TIE Advanced - A pilot wishing to "run the belt" would pilot a modified version of a TIE Advanced starfighter into Lando's Folly, the oncoming asteroid belt the pilots faced in the course.  Anakin Solo watched his sister, Jaina, break the record set by Kyp Durron when the three Solo children participated in "running the belt."  They later used Lando's Folly to escape an oncoming hord of Yuuzhan Vong Coralskippers.
sv11c (U): Green Squadron/Tycho Celchu's A-Wing - Tycho Celchu, his X-wing temporarily out of commission, volunteered to pilot an A-wing for the assault into the superstructure of the second Death Star and flew with Green Squadron as Green Three instead of his usual Rogue Nine designation, providing top cover for General Lando Calrissian in the Millennium Falcon.  Celchu split off from the attack force in order to lead several TIEs away through the Death Star and reduce the pursuit on Antilles and Calrissian, while they went in and blew the installation's reactor.
sv11d (U): Green Squadron/Arvel Crynyd's A-Wing - During the Battle of Endor, Green Leader gave the ultimate sacrifice by flying his A-wing into the bridge of Darth Vader's Star Dreadnaught, Executor, crippling it enough to crash into the second Death Star.

sv13 (R): Night Caller/Ession Strike Correlian Corvette - The Night Caller carried four TIE Fighters in its expanded forward cargo hold and mounted a heavy tractor beam projector in the place of one of its turbolaser turrets.  After Wraith Squadron captured the ship from Captain Zurel Darillian, two of the four TIE fighters were remounted at the escape pod supports, while both cargo bays were refitted to carry the squadron's X-wings, and command of the ship was given to Choday Hrakness serving in the New Republic until his death at the Battle of Talasea.  Following the destruction of Apwar Trigit's Star Destroyer, Implacable, the Corvette was renamed the Ession Strike, and was assigned to General Solo's fleet to destroy Zsinj's Iron Fist.
sv14 (R): Outrider/Outrider (promoted) - The Outrider was a heavily modified YT-2400 light freighter used by the brash smuggler Dash Rendar. Rendar held that his ship was almost as well known as the Millennium Falcon.
sv15 (R): Slave I /Slave I (promoted) - Already a formidable starship, the Slave I was inherited by Boba Fett from his clone father Jango, and customized further to be the most feared mercenary vessel in the galaxy.
sv16a (R): Jabba the Hutt's Sail Barge - Jabba's desert pleasure vehicle was destroyed at the Great Pit of Carkoon.
sv16b (R): Prisoner Transport - The Bantha-II Cargo Skiff was used to transport Han, Luke, and Chewbacca to the Great Pit of Carkoon to be fed to the Sarlacc beast while Jabba the Hutt entertained guests on his Sail Barge nearby.

sv17 (R): Padme Amidala's Nubian Yacht (chrome piece) - Though originally constructed for the Royal House, the H-type Nubian yacht was not assigned to a member of Naboo's royalty. Instead, it was given to Senator Padm? Amidala after a failed assassination attempt on Coruscant resulted in the destruction of her Naboo Royal Cruiser.  The Nubian Yacht was the smallest non-fighter craft in the Theed Hangars, and it was primarily employed as a getaway vessel as it was much faster than most civilian ships. With Senator Amidala at the helm, even the N-1 starfighters of the Royal Naboo Security Forces had difficulty keeping pace with the yacht.
sv18 (R): Errant Venture/Errant Venture (promoted) - The Errant Venture was an Imperial II-class Star Destroyer originally commissioned into the Imperial Navy as the Virulence. Captured by the smuggler Booster Terrik several years after the Battle of Endor, it remained in poor condition for many years owing to the great cost of maintaining such a large vessel. In addition, she was stripped of the vast majority of her armament: only ten (presumably light) turbolasers were permitted, and even those were not always functional. Years later, she received a comprehensive refit in exchange for use in a New Republic special-operations raid on an Imperial base. The most notable part of this refit was a deep red paint job instead of the classic Imperial white. While Captain Terrik was not permitted to keep all of his weapons after the operation, they were reinstated when the Yuuzhan Vong invasion occurred. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, she served as a temporary Jedi sanctuary and also as squadron flagship. Under Terrik's ownership she became a sort of mobile shadowport, and was for many decades the only privately-owned Imperial-class Star Destroyer in the known Galaxy, distinguished by its unusual red coloring.

The Force Unleashed (TFU)
svP10a (C): Felucian Bull Rancor - Bull rancors were a much larger subspecies of the common rancor, and had four long curving tusks that protruded from their spiky heads, as well as much longer tails than those on a normal rancor.
svP10b (C): Felucian Rancor Rider -  As one of the planets caught in the Clone Wars, Felucia became a battleground between opposing sides, pulling the native Force-sensitive Felucians into the midst of the conflict.  Patrolling their jungle homeworld astride ferocious rancors that were marked with luminous warpaint, Felucians used their natural Force abilities to control their deadly rancor mounts and expertly wielding their bone swords while on patrol, showing no mercy to those who would seek to subjugate them.  The rancor rider posed a formidable threat to even the most skilled Sith warrior.
svP11 (R): Rogue Shadow - An advanced prototype starship, the Rogue Shadow was piloted by Juno Eclipse, handpicked by Darth Vader himself to transport his Secret Apprentice across the galaxy on countless sinister missions.  The vessel boasts an advanced hyperdrive, cutting-edge sensory arrays, and the fastest sublight engines in the Imperial fleet. The ship?s most impressive feature, however, is its experimental cloaking device.
