The Lostrego was a modified TX-1200 contructed by Ande-Esmeralda Ship Yards at Marcaibao Drydock on planet Granada. The Lostrego was originally known as the Estrellla de Malambo, coming under the ownership of several drug dealers, obtained in all circumstances through theft. The Estrella de Malambo was coveted for it's powerful experimental Hyperdrive installed only on a few Tornillo-12X ships. After it was confiscated by Ande Sector Marine Gaurds, it was put up for auction, where it was bought by the former Republic fighter pilot Jorge Rojas for a bargain of 100 thousand dataries. He made several modifications, including adding Jimaran Steel to the hull, and illegal Mist weaponry.
