The Unspoken Threat

The Unspoken Threat is pirate refit of the Meritech Systems SZ-66 Corvette, a ship designed as the primary warship of the Scintillian Fleet prior to the Mandalorian wars. This ship was one of thirteen vessels that fled the battles that destroyed that world, and it instead fell into pirate hands when its crew was ambushed outside Prottus Station, having mutinied and broken from the pack of thirteen ships that fled to Obsidian to resupply and prepare for an eventual return. The Scintian crew was taken prisoner and sold as slaves or killed outright before the pirates set about making the vessel their flagship. In its pirate career, it claimed the lives of numerous other vessels, including two of the other SZ-66 Corvettes that survived Scintilla and had returned to it. What became of its sisters vessels is unknown.

In 3957, the ship and others flying the banner of Captain Black-Hand Dravix attacked and lost against the Intrepid Trading Company vessels the Schism and the Intrepid as well as the Drax’s family’s flagship, the Aspirant. After being disabled by numerous close attack runs and a brutal salvo of concussion missiles, the Intrepid Trading Company boarded the vessel to kill the pirates, including Captain Black-Hand Dravix, and take the ship.
