History[edit | edit source]
- "Kyle, the evac ships are standing by. Just keep those prisoners alive!"
- ―Jan Ors to Kyle Katarn
It was used by the Rebel Alliance during the early stages of the Galactic Civil War and a group of smugglers and mercenaries affiliated with the Disciples of Ragnos, later in the war. The transports were later used by the New Republic to speedily evacuate friendly-personnel, such as escaped prisoners, from enemy bases. They were deployed to evacuate the revolting prisoners and Kyle Katarn during the Battle of Artus Prime.
On a mission to Mos Eisley in 14 ABY, Kyle Katarn and Jaden Korr discovered a couple of TC9s. They would later run into them again, as the mercenaries used them for transporting personnel when they hijacked a cargo tram on Corellia.
