This WAS the personal space craft of the feared crime lord Tyson Cathmore. Although he usually traveled with his entire squad of bandits, he would occasionally run personal errands in his one of a kind StarHawk Space Fighter.
After Cathmore's death, the StarHawk sat in his base for years. One day, a spacer by the name of Trevor Skipp discovered Cathmore's base while exploring a remote asteroid field. Inside the garage, he found the StarHawk covered with dust. Skipp fell in love with the design of the fighter and took the now nonfunctional ship with him.
Once he got home, he brought the Starhawk to his favorite mechanic who not only returned the ship to a functional state, but also spruced up the engine. Equipped with a new paint job and newer weapons systems, Trevor Skipp took to the stars with his "brand new" fighter. Trevor Skipp is now an intergalactic space combat celebrity.
