Swift Return was a retrofitted Consular-class cruiser that served as a frigate in the Galactic Republic's Navy. Swift Return was destroyed in battle with the acclaimed Admiral Trench prior to the Battle of Christophsis of 22 BBY.
Behind the scenes
Swift Return first appeared in "Cat and Mouse," an episode of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series' second season which aired on March 26 2010, as a computer readout. Its name was written in Aurebesh in the episode, and the English translation was confirmed in the corresponding episode guide on StarWars.com.
Notes and references
- Swift Return appears to be a Consular-class cruiser, but The Clone Wars Campaign Guide indicates that the Consular-class cruisers used by the Republic Navy received the Charger c70 retrofit.
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars – "Cat and Mouse"
- The New Essential Chronology dates Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones to 22 BBY, while The Essential Reader's Companion dates the Star Wars: The Clone Wars film to 22 BBY. Since places "Cat and Mouse" between both films, it can be concluded that "Cat and Mouse" also takes place in 22 BBY.
