The Miranda was a commercial Mule-class DropShip under captain Joshua Ramier. At an unspecified time between 17 November and 13 December 3057 the Miranda was attached to the JumpShip Caliban when it jumped into the Laiaka system. There, they were approached and ordered to stand down by two Union-class DropShips of the Free Star Republic, Ravager and Lightning. The Miranda, implied to be on a smuggling run with its cargo manifest "too neat and too precise", detached from the Caliban and attempted to land on the planet, but was intercepted by Corsair aerospace fighters and forced to return.
