Background: The Outlander is a XS-800 light freighter flown by Wes Wiggity and is one of the more recent designs introduced by Corellian Engineering Corporation. In many ways, the XS-800 is a smaller-scale version of the corvette CEC developed for military use. The sublight and hyperdrive assembly is almost identical in design to the Corellian corvette (though it is considerably smaller).

The XS-800-unlike other freighters of its type was built with crew comfort in mind. Quarters are each equipped with a small refresher unit as well as an
autochef and personal computer system. Each crew chamber is environmentally sealed, and the gravity, temperature and atmospheric configuration can be adjusted to suit the individual crewer. In order to conserve space, bunks fold out from the bulkhead, making for small but comfortable quarters.
XS-800s are equipped with two escape pods that can each seat five people. In addition, the cockpit is designed to break away as a sealed module in the event of an explosion in space. By activating a series of explosive bolts, the cockpit chamber can separate from the hull and maintain internal life support for three days. The cockpit has no guidance system, though an emergency repulsorlift allows the unit to land if it is pulled into the gravity well of a planet. Once the cockpit has separated from the hull, the ship is essentially destroyed.
