- "Prepare for attack!"
- ―Grievous upon seeing Guarlara
During the battle, Guarlara engaged General Grievous's flagship Invisible Hand, trading turbolaser and proton torpedo fire with the Separatist command ship at point-blank range. Both vessels took heavy damage in the exchange, but Guarlara's broadsides assault ultimately proved fatal for the Invisible Hand, sending the Separatist carrier/destroyer plunging toward Coruscant's surface.
In doing so, Guarlara's crew unwittingly endangered an attempt by Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker to rescue Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, whom Grievous had kidnapped during the early stages of the battle. However, Kenobi and Skywalker, aided by Palpatine and R2-D2, were able to safely land the wreck of Invisible Hand on the surface of Coruscant. This was known to be a communication error, where the Guarlara's command crews mistook the report and thought the Chancellor was already rescued and evacuated from the Invisible Hand.
