Like the ThunderParrot, this ship was originally built at the Celestine Shipyards on Beaumonde. She was built a light passenger liner (with cargo module capability) and named the Pride of Bonadan. She was assigned to regular runs between Bonadan starport on Paquin and ports of several White Sun worlds. During the war she was refitted with larger engines, armor, and railguns to become a blockade runner for the independents and renamed The Weasel. For nine years after the war she sat on the ground on Boros, until Captain Farmer and his crew decided to have her refurbished (at Alliance government expense, see S2 Ep6) and to rename her ThunderFerret.
