But as I mentioned there, it doesn't really make much sense.
Personally I want to say Ziost for Vaiken Spacedock, but the idea of having a ship called Ziost Shadow in orbit over Ziost just seems... tacky (or at least a little too on-the-nose for my personal taste).

But Ziost is partly an ice world and from orbit, I can't really see anything that remotely looks like a mix between Belsavis and Korriban, which is what Ziost would probably look like in TOR IMHO.

Nonetheless, that would explain why the ship is named like that.

Good ol' Czerka... Always at the ready to boldly go where no sane person has gone before, providing would be criminals with safe havens throughout the galaxy, after the latter were abandoned following their latest write-off, namely a "project" that went bonkers.

We love you.

Of course there is - those idiots are freaking every where. They probably disturbed some eldritch horror that's going to go on a galaxy-wide rampage in a year and eat half of Tatooine.

And then the only reason Tatooine shows up in the films is because the Republic used one of their many half-brained "dooms day" weapons to smash a couple of moons together and fix the planet. The Empire in the meantime studies the eldritch horror's remains and finds out that it's useful for both making long-lasting weapon energy cells and tea.

Perhaps Czerka was founded by some looney called Vodal Kresh ?

Interesting. The Czerka are truly a bunch of some type of hybrid Scientist/Dare-Devils.
