Bio:

This Corellian YZ-775 Transport was owned by a small shipping company on Casperia. After the planet’s destruction, its captain claimed ownership. It is currently being used by the characters in their missions for Countess Adriana Monocerotis.

Due to the importance of the Nova Star’s missions for the Casperian people, it has been outfitted with significant non-standard equipment, including a secure communications system, low-observability equipment, an improved med-bay, tri-phasic shields, a suite of advanced scientific instruments, Dr. Nogo Larogo’s latest hyperdrive enhancements, and a permanently-assigned squad of battle droids.

It is still an old ship, it is not particularly well armed, and the new shields are not really any more effective against most weapons, but it makes an excellent scout ship and can go where no ship has gone before.
