History[edit | edit source]

Christophsis[edit | edit source]

Munificent-class star frigates participated in the Blockade of Christophsis under the command of Admiral Trench. When the Invincible was destroyed, the other Munificent-class warships and Droid Control Ships were sent into disarray and eventually retreated.[12]

Later in the battle, several frigates returned and forced the Republic fleet, led by Admiral Wullf Yularen, out of orbit. Yularen later returned with a larger fleet and broke the blockade again, leading to the retreat of the remaining Separatist cruisers.[13]

Ambushing Yoda[edit | edit source]

While on a diplomatic mission, Yoda was sent to Toydaria discuss a treaty with King Katuunko. While his warship neared the planet, it was suddenly ambushed when two Munificents dropped out of hyperspace and attacked. Though the frigates chased Yoda's warship out of the system, Yoda himself managed to reach the planet's surface in an escape pod.[14]

Other battles[edit | edit source]

The ships continued to be used throughout the entire Clone Wars.[15] They were used at the planet Devaron while the bounty hunter Cad Bane, who had been hired by Darth Sidious, tried to steal a Holocron from Jedi Master Bolla Ropal. They appeared at major battles like Ryloth[4] and Umbara.[16] During the Battle of Crombach Nebula, Jedi Master Wom-Nii Gnaden's NTB-630 naval bomber collided with a Munificent. This left an impact mark that was still visible on the frigate by the time of the Battle of Coruscant.[8] At least 1,000 Munificent-class star frigates were involved in the Battle of Coruscant.[15][17]
