Vestig was an aide for the Imperial Advisor Coh Veshiv of the Galactic Empire in 0 ABY. At that time, Veshiv was on an inspection tour of the planet Esseles on the CR90 corvette Empire Forever. While Veshiv was at Esseles, the EF76 Nebulon-B escort frigate Far Orbit's captain, Dhas Fenoep Vedij, volunteered to take Veshiv on the next part of his journey, so Vestig, along with fellow advisor Pich, accompanied Veshiv over to the Far Orbit in the shuttle Myrenia. However, it turned out that the Far Orbit was really an Alliance to Restore the Republic privateering vessel, and Veshiv was captured by the crew of the Far Orbit.
Behind the scenes
Vestig was first mentioned in an adventure scenario, The Capture of Coh Veshiv, from 1998's The Far Orbit Project, a book by Timothy S. O'Brien. The book was a supplement to West End Games's Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game and was a sequel of sorts to the previous publication Pirates & Privateers, carrying on that book's theme by following the privateering vessel Far Orbit. Vestig's fate during Veshiv's capture is unknown, as the capture of Veshiv is played out by the players.
