Looks like a Star Cab on page 41 of Galaxy Guide 8: Scouts

I very much doubt it's a stock StarCab; the StarCab has crap stats. Considering who Mara is, it has most likely been stripped and heavily augmented, only appearing to be a StarCab until it goes into combat.

I don't think it's that bad - it's got 4D Hull, 100 Metric tons, 1D Maneuverability, and Space 8. Its Hyperdrive is atrocious - that one's likely to be upgraded to at least an x2 and the old one kept as a backup; it doesn't have any shields as "stock" (likely a die or two for Mara Jade); the armament is basically two fire-linked flashlights with a strobe function fore and aft - I think Mara Jade might have upgraded at least to light fire-linked blasters fore and maybe fire-linked ion cannon aft.

Given that Mara Jade's running a Z-95, I would be more interested how she's upgraded that thing - unless it's so upgraded it is basically a T-65 by any other name, it might be better for Mara Jade to fight using the Star Cab.

Hmm. Never noticed that, somehow. 8 is an awfully high Space rating for a supposedly "ancient" ship, though...

Hey, that was before thousands of years of safety regulations.

Thank you guys, yeah seems it very well could be a star cab.
Upgraded though, as i doubt Mara as a Hand would be effective with the stock unstable x10 hyperdrive.
So I think as said here it is an upgraded version.


I like the artist rendering, looks great.

and again thank you nexus of star wars knowledge
