The Trent 400 was always criticized for being an ugly, unwieldy vessel. However, it is one of the most reliable interstellar ships for its size.
At the time it was produced, most small ships could not handle a hyperdrive, but Trent Shipyards overcame this difficulty, making a small ship that could withstand hyperspace tensions.
Most small ships, if equipped with a puller hyperdrive would be torn in half if it were to be engaged. The Trent 400 withstands this stress and can enter hyperspace with ease.
This particular Trent 400 found its way into the hands of Alfonso Damiano, who purchased the vessel from a used ship yard.
