This is my entry in Elite Commando's Galactic Civil War Battle Contest, based on the corridor battle between the Rebel Fleet Troopers & the Imperial Stormtroopers, out of SW-ANH.
About this creation
"Commander, tear this ship apart until you've found those plans and bring me the passengers. I want them alive!"
The Tantive IV was a CR90 corvette in the service of the Royal House of Alderaan. The ship was a central player in the events following the end of the Clone Wars and the beginning of the Galactic Civil War. It started life as a CR70 corvette named Star of Alderaan, but was renamed in honor of diplomats from Tantive IV who visited Alderaan. Following the Clone Wars, the ship was upgraded to a CR90 corvette. The ship sported twin turbolaser turrets and a massive drive block of eleven ion turbine engines. The corridors of the Tantive IV had mostly pristine bright white walls and gray metal floors. The hallways formed a loosely circular path around the central conference room. The ship also housed living quarters, formal dining rooms, other conference rooms, and an engine room. The second part of the mission was to reach the planet Tatooine, find Obi-Wan Kenobi, and escort him to Alderaan, along with the plans for the Death Star. However, the ship was intercepted by the Imperial I-class Star Destroyer Devastator while in orbit over the planet. The Tantive IV was quickly disabled and captured.
Despite the valiant efforts of the Alderaanian soldiers on board, the stormtroopers of the 501st Legion quickly overran the ship. In a critical move, Leia Organa was able to pass the Death Star plans to R2-D2 and instruct him to make contact with Obi-Wan Kenobi on the surface of Tatooine, before being captured herself. Unable to find the plans on board the Tantive IV, Darth Vader ordered a team of stormtroopers to sweep the planet below to find them. Afterwards the corvette was destroyed and the entire crew was killed. Imperial propaganda would later proclaim that an asteroid storm caused the destruction of the Tantive IV.
