"Attention Dessin's Dagger—power down and surrender or we will have to destroy you."
―The pilot of a Republic Z-95 Headhunter, to the crew of the Dessin's Dagger[src]

Dessin's Dagger was a modified YT-1300 light freighter that was active during the Clone Wars. In about 21 BBY, the freighter traveled to the Druckenwell system and there, the vessel's crew attempted to fit a device to a luxury liner. However, the freight was detected by local Galactic Republic forces and a trio of Republic Z-95 Headhunters were sent to apprehend Dessin's Dagger. The freighter sped off in an attempt to flee the system, and the Z-95s followed it in hot pursuit. However, the Heroes of Cularin—a group of freelance agents from the Cularin system—exited hyperspace in the Druckenwell system in a freighter, and their ship almost collided with the Dagger. The three fighters approached the YT-1300 and in desperation, Dessin's Dagger opened fire on them and destroyed one of the Z-95s.

The Heroes of Cularin decided to assist the two remaining Z-95s, and they helped the Republic forces to disable the Dessin's Dagger and capture the freighter's crew.
