The Far Orbit Project was written by Timothy S. O'Brien for Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game, published by West End Games in 1998. It is a campaign book detailing adventures within a Rebel privateering operation using the guidelines seen in the previous publication, Pirates & Privateers.

One of the book's main features is a partial map of an EF76 Nebulon-B escort frigate, detailing 14 decks in 12 pages.

The Far Orbit Project was the last original book published by West End Games, only preceding the re-edition of The DarkStryder Campaign collection in a boxed set.

Publisher's summary[]

Join the fearless crew of the Far Orbit, the first Rebel privateer ship. The Far Orbit's mission is simple: stage a daring series of strikes on the Core Worlds and wreak havoc on the forces of the Empire. The Far Orbit Project is the first supplement designed for use with the material presented in Pirates & Privateers.

In this desperate hour, the Rebel Alliance needs supplies, equipment and weapons to pursue its mission of liberating the galaxy from the forces of tyranny. To further this goal, Mon Mothma and other Alliance leaders have issues Letters of Marque and Reprisal to a select group of private raiding ships: Rebel Privateers.

One of the first privateers to take up the dangerous mission of harassing Imperial ships is the Far Orbit, a captured Nebulon-B escort frigate crewed by a motley collection of Imperial mutineers and former pirates.

The captain of the Far Orbit, Dhas Vedij, was once a capable and respected officer in the Imperial Navy. Now, he has volunteered to spearhead a series of daring strikes into the Ringali Shell, deep in the heart of Palpatine's domain. But, unbeknownst to Vedij, an old enemy awaits him in the Core Worlds....
