"R2, activate elevator 3224."
Anakin Skywalker, to R2-D2 over a comlink — (audio) Listen (file info)[src]

3224 was an elevator located aboard the Providence-class Dreadnought Invisible Hand, and could be entered from the Wizard's Tower at the top of the dreadnought's spire.[2] In 19 BBY,[1] during the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and Separatist Alliance, Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, after killing Separatist leader, Count Dooku, and rescuing Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine from custody during the space battle above the planet Coruscant, attempted to use 3224 to return to the lower levels of the craft.[2]

However, during the battle, the elevator was no longer operating and forced Skywalker to order his astromech droid, R2-D2, to reactivate it. While R2 attempted to reactivate the elevator, the Invisible Hand lost stability during a broadside battle with the Venator-class Star Destroyer Guarlara and resulted in the astromech falling downward within the dreadnought's main hangar, away from the controls.[2]
