The White Lightning was a modified CL-54 Cargo Lifter owned by Big Daddy Holbrook, who bought the ship after the Unification War. He turned the White Lightning into a saloon boat, and also used the vessel for smuggling. It had upgraded sensors and ECM/ECCM, as well as a lot of weaponry, primarily in order to confound any pursuers.
