The Blazemaker was a starship owned by Zander Freemaker during the Age of the Empire. He considered the ship his pride and joy. After Zander took Wick Cooper's vintage N-1 starfighter for a damaging joyride, Cooper took the starship as compensation and to spite Zander. However, Zander forgot to fix the fusion tubes and the starship exploded. Wick bailed out and vowed to sue the Freemakers. Zander then decided that he would address the fusion tube issue in the Blazemaker Mark II.
