"Ferglutz! For the last &@#!&@ time! This is NOT the Millennium Falcon!!! Look, the Cockpit's in the center!"
―Taralorn Melvarrik to an old man.

The Everlasting became famous as the personal starship of Taralorn Melvarrik. It began life as a standard Corellian Engineering Corporation VCX-820 stock light freighter. Throughout its operational lifetime, the ship endured many adventures and upgrades which led to its dilapidated exterior appearance. Under Melvarrik, it played a vital role in the Events of the Ageless and many other conflicts.

HistoryEdit

"Flandon's Teeth, what is it with the Ageless and weapons?!?"
Sorvetius Auvkahn, Chief Monk of the Asgardian Order.

Looking for a ship built for speed, strength and firepower, Ageless Jedi Grandmaster Taralorn Melvarrik sought out Axton Nobulus, fellow Ageless and also a high-ranking personnel of the esteemed Corellian Engineering Corporation. Be it good timing or a great stroke of fortune, Axton had just the ship for Taralorn. A VCX-820 escort freighter. Designed several years before the Yuuzhan Vong War. It was a heavy, fast, "flying guns"-platform. With its 8 autoblasters, it could easily guard convoys of otherwise defenseless bulk freighters and commerce craft. Designed with military requirements, it was nonetheless reasonably priced on the civil market. Originally, the VCX-820 was designed for the Imperial Remnant, but invasion by the Yuuzhan Vong caused many smugglers and private traders to seek out a vessel that would allow for protected travel through profitable, yet highly dangerous, space lanes. As a result of this desire, many larger trade-firms invested in these vessels, making it quite common during the hard times of the New Republic.
