- "Recent transfer, from the new ship Malevolence."
"Oh, yeah? That's a qaz-class ship, right? I'd like to hear what it's like on one of those—"
- ―Leia Organa and TK-5648
The Malevolence was a qaz-class Star Destroyer in the Imperial Navy following the Battle of Yavin. At that time, the rebel Leia Organa pretended to have been transferred from the ship in order to infiltrate the Star Destroyer Stormbringer.
The Malevolence was in service to the Imperial Navy following the Battle of Yavin in the Galactic Civil War, at which point it was considered a new vessel. Around this time, a mission to the planet Tibrin was undertaken by the Rebel Alliance members Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker, although it was cut short by Skywalker's capture by the Empire.
Organa then disguised herself as an Imperial officer, and infiltrated the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Stormbringer, where Skywalker was being held. As part of her cover, Organa pretended to have previously served on the Malevolence, causing the stormtrooper performing checks on personnel coming aboard, TK-5648, to express surprise and openly wonder what it would be like to serve on such a craft.
