The dart was a type of small, stealthy starship that was used by the Antarian Rangers during the early years of the Galactic Republic. In about 18 BBY, the vessel of the Jedi Knight Jax Pavan and his companions Den Dhur and I-5YQ was destroyed by the Galactic Empire, and the trio were rescued from a lifepod by a group of Rangers that were flying in darts. The darts then transported Pavan and his associates to the resistance base Mountain Home on the planet Toprawa.
