The Barderia was a Corellian freighter owned by Captain Rhanken. It was roughly 100 meters long and boxy. The captain worked a route of several systems in the Quelii sector, which included the Halmad system.
In 7 ABY, Wraith Squadron, posing as the Hawk-bat Independent Space Force, targeted the ship as part of their pirate activities. "General Kargin" was able to get the Barderia's navigator drunk and learn the ship's course. The Wraiths were capable enough to board the ship and take their choice of cargo twice, once in an unknown system and again just outside Halmad. Wedge Antilles and "Kargin" damaged the ship's engines, communications antenna, and weapons systems from their stolen TIE Interceptors, but sent a distress signal for the ship upon their departure.
