The Chalcedony was a YT-1300 light freighter modified for passenger transport. It was outbound from Pallaxides when it was forced to crash land on Celanon.

One of the passengers, a Bith merchant named Babel Senjorg, was aboard transporting a spore bomb for the Ho'Din terrorist Ort Hoogra-D'En. A Rodian detective investigating Senjorg accidentally set off the bomb.

Out of the six passengers, only the pilot survived the crash.
