== Background and History ==
The Class 720 freighter, also known as the Ghtroc 720, was a light freighter manufactured by Ghtroc Industries. Though less popular than the competing YT-series, the Ghtroc 720 developed a following in the Outer Rim Territories, where Ghtroc Industries was located, and thousands of the freighters remained in use even after the manufacturer went out of business.

Ghtroc Industries was a major producer of starships within the Outer Rim of the galaxy. Their ships included the Ghtroc 440, Ghtroc 580, Ghtroc 720, Luxurious-class space yacht, and Cargo Empress-class super freighter.

The Cargo Empress was a dismal marketing failure, and contributed to the corporation's eventual bankruptcy. However, Ghtroc's light freighters, especially the Ghtroc 720, gained a loyal following in the Outer Rim and remained in widespread use years after the company went out of business.
