"Parking lot is nearly empty, sir. We have the Salliche, the Fremond, and the Electrum."
―A comm specialist lists Sentinel Base's available starships to Wilhuff Tarkin — (audio) Listen (file info)[src]

Five years after the foundation of the Galactic Empire, Captain Burque served aboard the vessel while it was stationed at the deepdock at the planet Ryloth before being loaned to Sentinel Base, to protect if from an attack as the base's Core Envoy and most of the flotilla's other capital ships were escorting supply convoys to Geonosis. While at Sentinel 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 Sentinel. Dissident forces then attacked Sentinel Base, causing Electrum to rush back to the base, but not in time to prevent the enemy escaping.[2]
