Background: The DC0052 speeder, nicknamed “Intergalactic,” was an airspeeder utilized by the Jedi Order in the waning days of the Galactic Republic. Developed by Daystar Craft, the two-meter long vehicle featured a top speed of eight hundred kilometers per hour and could travel over two thousand kilometers uninterrupted. The craft was inexpensive to maintain and featured a special “drop-deployment” panel that allowed Jedi to enter the heat of battle swiftly while letting the DC0052 land itself with autopilot. Sixteen of the vehicles were kept and maintained by the Jedi High Council.

The DC0052 speeder was a cheap, short-range craft and could travel over two thousand kilometers without interruption. It featured a mid-altitude ceiling of one hundred and seventy kilometers, with a top speed of eight hundred kilometers per hour. The craft’s aerodynamic surfaces allowed it to travel swiftly across urban areas, while being propelled by dual Sono-class thrust pods.

To aid it in its movement, the DC0052 also featured four Daystar Craft repulsorlift generators, which were powered by the unit’s durable power supply unit. Unique to the DC0052 was a “drop-deployment” panel. The panel would allow a Jedi who had set the craft to land on autopilot to drop out from underneath the craft and enter a situation with due haste. Designed in the shape of a flying wing, the DC0052 had a small, one-being cockpit located centrally.
