"And, if all this wasn't bad enough, now our ship has developed problems. Doors open when no one's there. Lights blink off."
―Transmission from the captain of the Band Light[src]

The Band Light was a starship that was suspected of privateering during the Galactic Empire's rule of the galaxy. Crewed by at least four individuals, the Band Light saw its entire crew killed during an attempt to salvage an Etti-class light transport near the planet Ord Mantell before or during 1 BBY.


The Band Light was a vessel suspected of privateer activities that had a crew of at least four—the captain, Nix, Pend, and Red—during the reign of the Galactic Empire.[1]


As the crew of the Band Light attempted to salvage a derelict Etti-class light transport in the vicinity of the planet Ord Mantell[1] at some point before or during 1 BBY,[2] they began to die in what appeared to be a series of accidents. Nix, the Band Light's second-in-command and an experienced fringer, was expelled from an airlock while aboard the newly captured Etti-class transport. Red was impaled by a length of pipe in a collapsed corridor and eviscerated. Pend was beheaded while checking a ventilation shaft for smuggled goods. In truth, the deaths were caused by one or more Imperial Terror Troopers. In the wake of the deaths, the Band Light's captain decided to abandon the Etti-class vessel. The captain soon noticed new problems with the Band Light, such as lights switching off or doors opening on their own. The captain then sent a transmission about the incident which was intercepted.[1]

Commanders and crewEdit

The vessel was commanded by a captain during the Imperial period, and Nix was the second in command. The crew also consisted of other individuals including Pend and Red. The latter three were killed in a salvaging mission by a Terror Trooper.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit
