The vessel of Black Bha'lir Tribunal member Metlock Spinx, the "Alaina Star" is an older ship but a trusted friend as much as any member of his crew.
Spinx and his wife Alaina bought the elaborate star yacht (though it is easily as big as a star galleon) after an especially prosperous year and Metlock was named a Prince in the Bha'lir. He renamed the ship for the love of his life. Sadly, Alaina was killed during a pirate raid two years later and Spinx put the ship into storage. While he has piloted and captained dozens of ships (and got married a few more times) during his illustrious career, he never forgot his Alaina, so in his later years as he travels the space lanes, taking care of Bha'lir business and forging new relationships for the smuggler's organization, he’s decided to bring the Alaina Star out of dry dock and make it his flagship.
The Alaina Star is an older design, the product of a failed Gungan-Corellian partnership, allowing for easier docking on water, though it is generally easier to simply orbit the planet and send down the ‘Star’s shuttle that is docked on the vessel’s underside. Because it easier sometimes to land in water and deploy the shuttle (which is also a submersible), Spinx tends to oversee most of the systems dominated by aquatic or sea-faring species.
Although equipped with all the amenities of a star yacht, the Alaina Star is retrotfitted with shielded compartments and some impressive hidden weaponry (Thanks to a favor owed to Spinx by an unnamed individual at Kuat Drive Yards), making it well equipped to deal with any sort of customs issues. The Cargo bay pod is equipped to be jettisoned and sent through hyperspace to a predetermined destination to be picked up later, a feature that aided Spinx during his active smuggling days. Many pirate organizations are well aware of the vessel and steer clear out of respect (and fear) of the Black Bha'lir.
Spinx's smuggling days are long past him and he now acts in an administrative and leadership role for the Bha'lir, traveling and tutoring his daughter Diamond and acting in more of a public relations role.
The 'Star has a lower cargo hold, rear engines and spacious living quarters, complete with large observation decks (that allow stunning underwater views from the lower half when the vehicle is submerged in water). The Alaina Star provides all of the amenities one would expect in a high-end star yacht and the flagship of a member of the Black Bah’lir’s Tribunal.
