The Privateer was a freighter out of which the Screaming Skulls operated in the 2490s. It was medium sized and weather beaten, but personalized to the Screaming Skulls' needs.

In 2494, the Screaming Skulls met with Jim Raynor and Tychus Findlay to facilitate a trade of crystals. After this, and the acceptance of a job to steal port junkers, the two groups met on the Privateer, and enjoyed fancy gold colored liquor in its hold.


Privateers were real world naval vessels authorized by governments to attack and loot foreign vessels.
