The Plooriod Bodkin was a cruiser in the Judicial Starfleet of the Galactic Republic during the Separatist Crisis. Shortly before the start of the Clone Wars, it was dispatched to recapture the Judicial corvette Scarlet Thranta, commanded by Captain Zozridor Slayke, which had gone renegade in hopes of provoking war with the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
On that mission, the Plooriod Bodkin was crewed by thirty Judicials and twelve Jedi, and accompanied by eight Jedi Starfighters. The mission was led by Jedi Knight Nejaa Halcyon. They trailed the Thranta for weeks, finally finding it on Bpfassh. However, while searching for Slayke's crew, the pirates stole the Plooriod Bodkin after disabling the Thranta, leaving the Republic crew stranded on the world for months, disgracing Halcyon in the eyes of many. The Bodkin became Slayke's command ship.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Plooriod Bodkin is referred to at least once, in the novel Jedi Trial, as a 'judicial corvette'. It is unclear whether the Bodkin can be correctly designated as a cruiser, as a corvette, or as either.
