- "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
The Salliche was a frigate in the Imperial Navy. In 14 BBY, 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 that would be later be known as the Death Star.
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.
