The AA-9 Freighter-Liner, also known as the AA-9 Coruscant freighter, was a starship produced by Botajef Shipyards which first brought the small shipbuilding concern to galactic prominence. Initially conceived as a freighter, it would go on to be used as a refugee transport and, during the Clone Wars, as a troopship for the Grand Army of the Republic.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The AA-9 Freighter-Liner, also referred to as the AA-9 Coruscant freighter, was a freighter manufactured by Botajef Shipyards that could reach speeds of 420 kilometers per hour and was 390 meters in length. It had a passenger capacity of 30,000 and had over three months worth of emergency consumables onboard. It was equipped with a Class 4 hyperdrive, three powerful engines, a starboard and port boarding area, multi-deck accommodation,[1] several cafeterias, and various service droids.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

The transport's starboard profile

AA-9 Freighter-Liners, originally built to haul cargo,[1] were active as transports during the Separatist Crisis. In 22 BBY, an AA-9 Freighter-Liner, the Jendirian Valley, was responsible for transporting Senator Padmé Amidala, along with Jedi escort Anakin Skywalker, back to her homeworld of Naboo after the failure of an assassination attempt against her.[3]

During the Clone Wars, the Refugee Relief Movement utilized AA-9s as support vessels, transporting refugees from planets that fell under the control of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The Grand Army of the Galactic Republic also utilized AA-9 Freighter-Liners during the war to transport cargo and clone troopers, and their location on Coruscant made them ideal for such operations.[1] The model's extensive use during the war was what brought Botajef Shipyards to prominence in the galactic shipbuilding industry, allowing the company to branch out into the military starship market.[4]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The AA-9 Freighter-Liner first appeared in the 2002 episodic film, Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones[3] and was later identified as the AA-9 Coruscant freighter in the StarWars.com databank.[2]
