Numerous civilian and military starships; various commercial vehicles
|Chronological and political information|
Corellian Engineering Corporation, abbreviated CEC and originally called Corellian Engineering Corps, was one of the three largest starship manufacturers. This corporation was widely considered the most prolific starship manufacturer in the galaxy.
CEC, whose shipyards were located in the Corellian system, owed much of its success to the abnormally high numbers of skilled designers, engineers, and shipwrights the system produced. The shipyards were well known for their modular freighters which could be upgraded for combat with both legal and illegal after-market kits. These popular freighters ranged from the YG series first made centuries before the Battle of Yavin to the VCX series produced shortly before the Yuuzhan Vong War.
Unlike the company's main competitors (Kuat Drive Yards and Sienar Fleet Systems), CEC relied almost solely on civilian sales rather than military contracts. Even so, they were known to have constructed large warships for the Imperial Navy, as the smuggler Han Solo boasted of having outrun Corellian ships larger than bulk cruisers, and they also constructed vessels for the Alliance to Restore the Republic.
In the centuries before the Clone Wars, the Corellian Sector was guarded by warships bigger than Acclamator-class assault ships. These were presumably also homemade designs rather than imports from other notable shipwrights, like Kuat or Rendili.
The Corellian Engineering Corporation is a large space mining company with massive operations in the Kashyyyk space system. Introduced with the Rage of the Wookiees expansion pack, the CEC offers a long series of jobs to space pilots who wish to learn the methods of asteroid mining. Corporation tasks vary greatly from simple mining missions to sabotage and fleet escort, and should only be taken on by experienced pilots. The CEC asks a lot of its pilots and demands outstanding results, which can make it a difficult employer at times; however, the company is known for giving generous rewards to its veteran flyers, including the occasional granting of Y-8 Mining Ships to especially loyal pilots.

Flash is a minor pilot in the employ of the CEC. He's somehow stranded himself in the city of Kachirho, on the first level of the tree.
Thom is Flash's commanding officer and doesn't think too highly of his pilot. Thom will offer to give you a job with the Corellian Engineering Corporation if you complete a small task for him.
Koh is the senior officer overseeing mining operations in the Kashyyyk area, though he also helps plan CEC operations in other sectors. He is located on the third level of the large tree just beyond Chewbacca. Turn right after arriving on the third level.
As the above tip said, shoot The Gilded Wookie first, unless you have brought friends. Then move on to the escort, consisting of 2-3 nasty little Tier 4 A-Wings and 3 Tier 4 X-Wings. This should also be easy if youve got good guns and a good shield generator.
