Universal docking ring
The Junker, originally known as Blackstar, was a modified YT-2400 light freighter with a Starhawk shuttle instead of an escape pod and a power crystal that could burrow through deflector shields, although the starship was armed with no other weapons. It also featured two military grade universal docking rings and a short range tractor beam array on its rear. The ship was owned by Reegas Vance, but was taken by Khedryn Faal and Marr Idi-Shael, who used it for salvaging operations. In 41.5 ABY, Jedi Knight Jaden Korr enlisted the aid of the Junker's crew to resolve a Force vision he had received. This led them to take on a Sith dreadnaught from 5000 BBY, the Harbinger, and track down a group of dangerous Force-sensitive clones to an ancient Rakatan space station.
