Tobias Beckett got this really cool ship, The Rampart, in one issue of a comic, & never been featured again or given a model no.

So I'll do it. It's a YT-WH61, a rare concept ship Corellian Freighter that made its way out of the factory. There are just a few of these out there.
The heavy gunnery and large sensor array created a need for a second cockpit, where these systems are controlled.
The sensor array was able to pivot, and it was highly sensitive, giving Beckett and his crew more reliable readings beyond the capacity of most transports. This is why the ship was being tested and what it was conceived for.
The starboard cockpit was the piloting station.

Notice the sensor footprint coming off the back of the ship, reading the ship's tailing it at a distance. Very strong sensors... probably feeding Beckett info on what the pilots had for breakfast. :)
She clearly has parts on its hull from other YT class ships. Probably used those parts since this was a test model anyway. What's important is the sensor array.
Very low landing gear, the cockpits almost touch the floor.
Oh well.
That's my made up story of a cool looking yet still unknown, ship in SW, The Rampart.
One more... @robowieland says it must be a scout ship due to the sensors and the limited cargo space. I tend to agree. A scout ship would have sensors as powerful as those.

It is so, then... that the YT-WH61 is a Scout ship.

Are you familiar with the other domains inside Ravenloft, the Demiplane of Dread? Barovia is just one... there are a few other domains.

Lore time!
And that's the lore around domains. Thanks for coming to my TED talk... Actually, I'll take a raincheck, it's a lot to go through and I'm tired. :)

I’ve done this before, but why not do it again. I saw them come up today in a group post. Wanna look at the 1991 TSR #dnd trading cards. I love these things.
Obviously not gonna go through the whole set. 😂
I like them because regardless of edition, you can use them to show players some art, tangible, not off a screen.
