Margravine Quenelle of Nallastia owned a Nallastian rescue runner. She brought it to a deep-space rendezvous point within the Tapani sector in the year 23 BBY to meet with Senator Rodd of Fondor.

Both Rodd and Quenelle claimed salvage rights to what they professed to be the Sun Runner, an ancient vessel that had, by all outward appearances, recently reappeared (the derelict was, in fact, a counterfeit ship fabricated by Groodo the Hutt in a scheme to destroy the Fondor Shipyards and surface factories). Jedi Knight Bultar Swan oversaw their salvage-rights negotiations in the salon pod of the Republic cruiser Unitive. The Jedi Master-apprentice team of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, on a mission to Fondor, were also in attendance.
