Star Wars: Confederacy Era
The Gesk are a race of opportunistic nomads who operate in The Badlands (Outer Rim Territories)
between the Unknown Regions and The Mid Rim. Renowned as pirates and scoundrels, Gesk have
no homeworld within recent or historical memory and are born – and live – among the stars. A
near-human species, Gesk can be easily mistaken for Humans at a distance and often use this to
their advantage when pirating the Hyperspace lanes. Gesk commonly travel in flotillas of ships
they simply call ‘Fleets’, and while Gesk as individuals are not outlawed within Confederacy Space,
their fleets are.
Part of the reason Gesk are so feared is the cloaking technology their starships possess. Unwilling
to trade it with non-Gesk and seemingly unable to replicate it for others to use, Gesk possess the
only starships with any effective form of cloaking technology which allows the perform devastating
hit-and-run attacks on unwary travelers.
