"I decided the only way we can break the blockade is if I pilot the Defender right into their battleship and take out their commander."
"What?"
"This way, I'm the only one at risk. Besides, the Defender is damaged already."
―Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano — (audio) Listen (file info)[src]

The Defender was a Venator-class Star Destroyer that served in the Republic Navy's Open Circle Armada during the Clone Wars. It was heavily damaged during the opening barrages of the Battle of Ryloth, losing its starboard bridge tower, and was subsequently destroyed when Anakin Skywalker rammed the damaged vessel into the opposing battleship.[1]
