The design of the Convergence Tactical Assault Vehicle combined different elements from thousands of years of military science to create a craft that could fulfill many different roles. Twice the size of a starfighter, they were hyperspace-capable and could be used as transports, with space onboard for eight to ten warriors. They also sported weapons systems, allowing them to be used as starfighters, or as bombers.
The Convergence Vehicle was developed by engineers that served the Sith Lord Daiman, in the Daimanate Dynamic Testing Facility on the planet Darkknell. They constructed a prototype version, the Convergence, which was fitted with a testing arm that allowed the simulation of sublight conditions. In 1032 BBY, the Sith Lord Odion sent the Bothan spy Narsk Ka'hane to infiltrate the Daimanate Testing Facility and steal a copy of the Convergence designs, and the agent successfully obtained a copy of the blueprints. However, the Jedi Knight Kerra Holt destroyed his copy of the plans, and detonated some explosives that Ka'hane had placed aboard the Convergence prototype.
