A starship was owned by the hunter Riegenn Hetuu during the time of the Galactic Republic. The starship needed at least one person to operate it, and had a cargo bay equipped with life support systems.[1] Around the year 3743 BBY,[2] Hetuu used the ship's cargo bay to hold a live k'lor'slug queen that he had captured for a Hutt who intended to use the beast in a yearly gladiatorial tournament. He flew his ship to the planet Hutta, where the Hutt was located, but the worm-like k'lor'slug had laid eggs in the cargo bay that quickly hatched into nearly four hundred k'lorslugs. When the Hutt arrived at the ship, Hetuu opened the cargo bay to present the Hutt with his prize. However, the hoard of k'lorslugs swarmed out and devoured both Hetuu and his Hutt client.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Riegenn Hetuu's starship was indirectly mentioned in Star Wars: The Old Republic, a 2011 MMORPG produced by BioWare. The starship was mentioned as part of the k'lor'slug codex entry, which could be found by players who killed the k'lor'slug broodwatcher in the tomb of the Sith Lord Ajunta Pall on the planet Korriban.[1]

SWTOR mini Star Wars: The Old Republic—Codex Entry: "K'lor'slug" is a codex entry that can be found in Star Wars: The Old Republic, which takes place roughly ten to twelve years after the Treaty of Coruscant according to The Old Republic's lead writer, Daniel Erickson.

Since the Treaty of Coruscant was signed in 3653 BBY according to The Old Republic: Deceived, this places the events of the game at approximately 3643 BBY to 3641 BBY. This article uses the date of 3643 BBY as an approximate date, which would place the Hetuu's death and his use of the starship around 3743 BBY, but the actual date could be different.
