The Ark was a massive starship created by the Hutt Cartel. Commissioned by Toborro the Hutt as a way to escape the volatile atmosphere of the planet Makeb while carrying a huge supply of the recently discovered power source called Isotope-5.

Built in secret inside the Giant's Spear mesa, it reached near completion during the early days of the destabilization of Makeb's core. During said crisis, the Galactic Republic intervened, capturing and completing construction of the starship. The Ark was re-purposed to evacuate the majority of the planet's population in response to the growing worries over the state of the planet. The Ark finally took off, powered by the same energy source it was supposed to hold during the final moments of the hypothesized destruction of the planet.
