"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 — Gnome-speakernotesListen (file info)[src]

The Salliche was a frigate in the Imperial Navy.[1] In 14 BBY,[2] the Salliche was stationed at the Imperial facility known as Sentinel Base, which oversaw the materials being sent to the planet Geonosis for the construction of a battle station[1] that would be later be known as the Death Star.[3]

At that time, when a fake transmission claimed that the nearby Rampart Station was under attack by a rebel cell, the Salliche was vacant and parked in stationary orbit over the moon Sentinel Base was situated on, along with the tug Fremond and the combat-ready Venator-class Star Destroyer Electrum. When given the choice of vessels by a comm specialist, the commander of Sentinel Base, Moff Wilhuff Tarkin, chose the Electrum to react to the attack.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Salliche was first mentioned in the 2014 James Luceno novel Tarkin.[1]
