The ship derived its name because its construction cannibalized parts of other ships, commonly incompatible parts. The main parts came from almost thirty different manufacturers; the manufacturers of the minor parts were countless. The hull itself combined those of a Kuat Systems Engineering Firespray-class patrol and attack craft and a Ckratar Crafts Venturer-class freighter. The power converters had been stolen from Koensayr Manufacturing, the primary sensor array was from Primarin Starshipwrights Union, and the two flight computers came from a Gamma-class assault shuttle.
Warren obtained the ship or its part as a payment from a student who had a talent for ship design and repairs, but not for finances. He quickly became the personal owner of the ship with his friend Casti Tholon as first officer.
