"Master, General Grievous's ship is directly ahead. The one crawling with vulture droids."
―Anakin Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi[src]

The Invisible Hand was a Providence-class dreadnought commanded by General Grievous during the Clone Wars. The vessel was colored a light blue-gray, with subtle yellow bow stripes.

It was equipped with numerous vulture droids, as well as standard battle droids and Grievous's personal IG-100 MagnaGuards. The bridge crew included several Neimoidians.


From this vessel, Grievous launched the Battle of Coruscant, a raid of the planet Coruscant that resulted in the capture of Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine. The Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker boarded the vessel to rescue Palpatine, Skywalker killing Count Dooku (secretly the Sith Lord Darth Tyranus), who had been holding him hostage. Unbeknownst to them, the entire event had been orchestrated by Palpatine, who was secretly Darth Sidious. The group was captured and escorted to the bridge of the Invisible Hand, where they were confronted by Grievous. Grievous intended to slay them, but ultimately could only escape, attempting to sabotage the ship and jettisoning the vessel's escape pods and eventually being picked up by the Profusion. Skywalker was able to land the vessel on Coruscant, though it suffered catastrophic damage and would likely never fly again.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Invisible Hand first appeared in Labyrinth of Evil, a direct prequel novel to Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. The events of this book are, however, now considered part of the continuity of Star Wars Legends and not official canon. Despite being portrayed in other media as General Grievous's flagship towards the end of the Clone Wars, the Invisible Hand was never seen in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, in which Grievous was heavily featured as a character.
