The Sentinel was an Interdictor Cruiser in the Imperial Navy during Grand Admiral Thrawn's campaign against the New Republic in 9 ABY. During the Battle of Bilbringi, the Sentinel, together with a set of other Interdictor cruisers that included the Constrainer, were positioned to intercept the incoming flotilla for the rest of the Imperial units to assault them. After the Interdictors pulled the New Republic forces out of hyperspace, Thrawn instructed the Constrainer to return to the Imperial line of battle. The engagement eventually ended with the death of Thrawn and the defeat of the Imperial fleet.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Sentinel first appeared in the 1991 novel The Last Command, the closing installment of Timothy Zahn's Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, as part of the Imperial line of battle during the story's pivotal battle at Bilbringi.
The Last Command refers to the Sentinel as an "Interdictor Cruiser", which are variably depicted in Dark Force Rising and The Last Command comics as either Immobilizer 418 cruisers, such as the Constrainer, or Interdictor-class Star Destroyers.
