Designed and built during the beginning of the Empire the Nesst suffered from many of the decrees placed forth from the politics of the Imperial Order, one of which was a starship corporation owned and run by non-humans. Major advantages the Nesst has is the fast hyperdrive and a large cargo area for a light freighter but the down sides is less range, no weapons and a weak power core preventing aftermarket weapon additions. Needless to say the Nesst was a failure and a short run.
With all the downsides the Nesst still found market in the core worlds where the space lanes are safer and in short run markets where they may only have to travel three to four nearby systems for its runs. But leave it to outlaw techs to make the impossible possible. On some Outer Rim planet a Nesst was fitted with a power core that slowed the hyperdrive by one but gave it the ability to be fitted with up to two weapons. While impressed many spacers still avoided the Nesst because of the high cost and effort of the core replacement, but as time went on other techs founds better cores that could be used cheeper and installed faster with little fuss and also keeping the hyperdrive at it's normal speed.
It is impossible to find a new Nesst Light Freighter even though there are rumors that there is a stash of late models on some astroid base abandoned because a starship dealer figured he would get a better return reporting them destroyed in a accident and collecting the insurance then trying to sell them outright. As a used starship they cost a low 30,000 Cr. without the core modifications.
