Alright. So after talking with Callin for awhile... Here's the quick backstory behind the Sleight of Hand, Ban-Anad's ship which could be a hook for the game.
It was developed in a joint-venture between CEC, Rendili StarDrive and Sienar Fleet Systems as a prototype long-range stealth and recon vessel to be used against the Sith Empire during the Great Galactic War prior to the Cold War era. It was constructed in a top-secret CEC facility with Sienar responsible for most of the hardware and software, while the most of the main chassis, ion engines and power generators were supplied by Rendili. The bridge section was developed internally by Corellian Engineering and was considered state-of-the-art for its' time- featuring a specialised neural-link system used to pilot and otherwise command the ship. The ship offers comfortable quarters for seven (six crew, plus a captain) although that capacity can be increased to 13 (12 crew, plus a captain) in need be. The cargo hold is large enough to store a sizeable landspeeder, with room to spare.
Unfortunately, although initial tests were successful, calibrating the neural-link system proved challenging as it wasn't compatible to all subjects and pilots would need incredibly strong willpower to even be able to fly the ship through it. Due to that and the inherent costs of the materials required for the hull and internal systems, the project was eventually canned and funding was redirected to more directly supporting the war effort.
The only fully-constructed prototype was retired to a CEC storage facility which eventually turned into a ship graveyard during the onset of the Cold War.
Ban-Anad found the ship some years after the end of the Cold War, after having a vision induced by his innate Force-sensitivity. With the help of Stowdacca, his Wookiee companion, he brought the ship back to life, refitting it with modern, for the time, hardware. He called it the Sleight of Hand and made it his main vessel.
During one of his adventures, one which took him deep into a Force Nebula in search of a lost relic dating back from before the time of Exar Kun, he found a mystical device, a Force-compass of sorts, which integrated itself directly with the neural-link of the ship- giving it a sort of sentience, or at least conscience and linking it to D'ealari's bloodline.
With the help of this device, Ban then found what is possibly one of the oldest Force relics in existence- a Force-imbued blade dating back as far as the first Force Wars. Upon touching the Force-blade, Ban-Anad was granted a direct connection to the Living Force.
Ban-Anad kept both the ship and the blade in his possession for the remainder of his natural life, finally hiding the Sleight of Hand somewhere in the Force Nebula where he discovered the mystical Force-compass.
The ship was again found, thousands of years later, in 35 BBY, inactive yet still intact and in serviceable condition, by a salvage crew working for the Hutt Cartel. The Cartel ended up auctioning it off, seeing how they couldn't figure out how to activate it. The buyer was Kuat Drive Yards who used it as a basis for their own research into stealth technology up until the start of the Clone Wars. Once the Clone Wars began, the project was stopped as attention was diverted into raising a fleet for the Republic.
The Sleight of Hand was thus again shipped to a storage facility where it remained until 10 BBY, when it was discovered and picked up as a pet-project by a lesser Moff who sought to re-activate the ship and present it to Darth Vader and the Emperor as a means to gain favour.
