Background: The YV-865 Aurore-class freighter was a highly durable model of freighter built by the Corellian Engineering Corporation. Due to their excessive use by the Zygerrian Slave Empire, they were often nicknamed Zygerrian slave ships.

YV-865 Aurore-class freighters were large and blocky spacecraft with spacious cargo holds, large enough to hold a blixus or, in the case of the Zygerrians, numerous slaves. The powerful twin thruster engines, albeit considered primitive by the time of the Clone Wars, sat on two articulated boom arms that extended from each side of the ship’s primary hull. These boom arms would fold up while the craft was landing, using the engines as supports. Despite its size and large cargo complement, the vessel could be competently operated by a single pilot. For emergency situations, the freighter had one escape pod in the upper rear section which could be ejected from the craft.
