- "Arkanian Dawn. Good name for a ship, that."
- ―Corwin Shelvay to Dawn.
Arkanian Dawn was one of the most infamous slaver ships in the Outer Rim during the time of the Galactic Civil War between the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire. Throughout the Rim, the Dawn held the reputation as a death ship—though, in reality, its captain Dawn Arkanian used the Dawn to rescue thousands of slaves, taking them to Alliance safe worlds where they were freed.
