The Coronet was a New Mandalorian liner often used by Duchess Satine Kryze for diplomatic meetings. During the Clone Wars, Kryze used the ship to fly to Coruscant to debate a proposed Republic intervention on Mandalore to stop Death Watch. It was subjected to a battle when Senator Tal Merrik attempted to assassinate Kryze, alerting Droch-class boarding ships to the Coronet's location. The Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker and their clone troopers prevented her assassination, destroyed the deposited B2-series super battle droids and killed Merrik, allowing Kryze to depart at Coruscant.

Description[edit | edit source]

A Nau'ur-class yacht manufactured by Kalevala Spaceworks the Coronet featured richly decorated interiors and was staffed by a large crew of droids, including LEP servant droids, BD-3000 luxury droids, and 3PO-series protocol droids.[4] The ship also had quarters with a bunk, desk, and chair, as well as a sizeable cargo hold.[5]

History[edit | edit source]

In 21 BBY,[6] Duchess Satine Kryze of the planet Mandalore took the ship to Coruscant, intending to deliberate with the Galactic Senate about the recent acts of the terrorist group known as Death Watch on her homeworld. There were several guests onboard, including Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, Republic clone troopers under their command, and several diplomatic guests; Senators Kin Robb, Orn Free Taa, Onaconda Farr, and Tal Merrik. As the guests began to eat in the dining area with Kenobi, Skywalker and his imen discovered assassin probes in the cargo hold. One of the probes escaped and made its way to the dining room, where it was eventually subdued by Kenobi.[5]

When it was revealed the Tal Merrik was a traitor and that he had smuggled the probes onboard, he took Satine hostage and made his way to the bridge. Merrick stormed the bridge and killed the quartet of Senate Commandos and a human male captain that were posted there before dropping the Coronet out of hyperspace. He would contact Pre Vizsla, who sent reinforcements in the form of several Droch-class boarding ships, which deployed B2-series super battle droids. After a short battle against the droids, Skywalker killed Merrik and the Coronet finished its journey to Coruscant.[5]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Coronet first appeared in "The Mandalore Plot," the twelfth episode in the second season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.[4]
