Background and History
Designed by the Corellian Engineering Corporation as a budget space transport for fledgling businesses, the G9 Rigger is a slow and unwieldy transport ship on the verge of obsolescence by the time of the outbreak of the Clone Wars. The G9 Rigger, though inexpensive, offers few of the amenities sought after by independent traders. Like all CEC ships, the G9 Rigger is fairly easy to customize, but the ship is too bulky and sluggish for most couriers and transport pilots who pride themselves on speed. As a result, the G9 Rigger is most often seen in the hands of local traders who ply the space lanes in a small area of the galaxy, and has earned a reputation as a low-quality vessel suitable for use only on the Outer Rim. Interestingly, it is this reputation that leads many spice smugglers to spend the time and effort to modify the G9 Rigger, as most sector authorities see little threat from this vessel.
The Twilight, a spice freighter owned by Ziro the Hutt and stolen from the planet Teth by Anakin Skywalker, is a G9 Rigger.
