The Karaboudjan was a CR90 corvette in service as a civilian freighter during the Clone Wars. By 21 BBY, it was under the command of Captain Archibald Haddock.
In that year, the crew of the Karaboudjan were bribed by the Separatist sympathizer Ivan Sakharine to mutiny against Captain Haddock in order to get to the planet Bagghar to collect the third model ship of the Unicorn. Tintin and his dog Snowy were later brought aboard this ship when the former was captured by the crew. The two were later able to escape with Captain Haddock in an escape pod in order to reach Bagghar first.
The ship later returned to Spacedock after returning from Bagghar. After Sakharine was defeated and placed under arrest, command of the Karaboudjan was given to Captain Haddock again.
