Five years after the foundation of the Galactic Empire, Captain Burque served aboard the vessel while it was stationed at the deepdock of the planet Ryloth before it was loaned to Sentinel Base for protection from an attack. This is as the base's Core Envoy and most of the flotilla's other capital ships were escorting supply convoys to Geonosis. While at Sentinel Base, Captain Burque was ordered to come to the aid of Rampart Station when it was believed to be under attack, but the distress call concerning the attack turned out to be a hoax designed to draw Electrum away from the facility. Dissident forces then attacked Sentinel Base, causing Electrum to rush back to the base, but not in time to prevent the enemy from escaping.
