Des'maric Pirate Blastboats
|Three Skipray blastboats were stolen from the starport on Elshandruu Pica by the Des'maric Pirates. The act of stealing them was so audacious (which is probably why it succeeded as well as it did) that starport patrol barely launched their ships by the time Miktiss and his crew jumped to hyperspace in their new acquisitions.
Miktiss has put these ships to good use while in his care. The ships are used to capture bulk freighters and help establish his authority on planets that have little to no contact with the galaxy to receive tribute. Small demonstrations of the ships' power helps "encourage" the natives to give the requested tribute.
Miktiss has designated three of his most trusted lieutenants to command these blastboats: Yun, an Aqualish mercenary; Jerri, a young Human that quickly gained Miktiss's favor; and Ginzet, a fellow Saurton and long friend of the pirate leader.
