"The Old Republic: Smuggler's Vanguard" is a short story written by Robert Chestney that was published exclusively on StarWars.com on March 25, 2010. On October 1, 2012, it was republished on the Del Rey Website. The story is set in 3660 BBY during the Great Galactic War, and focuses on the Mirialan smuggler Hylo Visz, tying into the Star Wars: The Old Republic video game.
After landing in Rendili Corporate facility, Hylo Visz senses a trap, but before she can depart with the ship, she is trapped by Musk and his partner, who don't believe in her and try to finish the deal instead.
After being trapped in the cargo hatch, Hylo Visz escapes to the landing pad and sees her ship blown up after finishing the deal and taking off with the two enforcers on board, due to Rendili Vehicle Corporation trying to double-cross Barrga the Hutt.
Attempting to escape, Hylo Visz moves through the Rendili Corporate facility, without being discovered until she finds a ship; a new Defender-class light corvette doing its first flight test. Visz is able to steal the ship from the pilot, who is a Jedi and escapes from the planet.
