Description: The Wretched Hive is a hybrid miner/salvager/fabricator vessel, heavily modified from its original configuration. Effectively, it’s Jorus Merrill’s mobile home and base of operations, crewed by trusted outlaw techs who hailed from Dingo Darr’s Chop Shop on Ord Mantell, during the collapse of the Mandalorian regime. Darr himself, an old Krevaaki Undergrounder, runs the Hive when Jorus and Alna aren’t around. The Hive is no raider, but it serves his purposes well enough. Its holds and hangars can carry ore, salvage, or even other starships.


The Hive has been known to provide repair and modification services for ships from the Underground, the mapping nonprofit Baobab Astrography, and various unaffiliated spacers. Occasional ports of call may include Kal’Shebbol, Nar Shaddaa, Ord Mantell, Rebellion Actual, the Kathol Technical Academy, the old Levantine worlds, Tatooine, and various Wild Space shadowports.


Development Thread: Mama I’m Coming Home - Jorus and Alna visit a shadowport in search of starship components.

Intent: A new and more versatile ship for Jorus, now that the Gypsymoth has been destroyed.

Who Can Use This: Jorus and Alna Merrill; Underground people can use it as a setting
