The Arquitens-class light cruiser was a line of light cruisers designed by Kuat Drive Yards. It consisted of at least two variants: the Jedi light cruiser and the Imperial light cruiser.


Clone WarsEdit

"Get back to the bridge. We need to detach before Grievous jumps ship."
―Obi-Wan Kenobi, to the clone naval officers aboard his Arquitens-class light cruiser during the Battle of Saleucami[src]

Admiral Coburn commands an Arquitens-class light cruiser at Kadavo.

Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi commanded one of these ships during the Battle of Saleucami, during which it was used to attract General Grievous as a distraction for the boarding party. The ship was destroyed during the battle, along with two clone pilots who were trying to pull away from the Separatist cruiser that had docked onto it.[2]

Several Arquitens-class light cruisers formed part of the fleet that protected Kamino when it was attacked by General Grievous and Asajj Ventress.[4] Arquitens-class ships were also part of the fleet that engaged Ventress's fleet in the Sullust system later on.[5]

Following a distress call from the Togruta colonists of the planet Kiros, Master Yoda deployed a group containing Arquitens-class light cruisers and a Venator-class Star Destroyer to investigate.[6]

An Arquitens-class fought in the Battle of Ringo Vinda late in the war.[7]

Galactic Civil WarEdit

Darth Vader and Inspector Thanoth used this class of ship while carrying out Grand General Tagge's orders in the Anthan system. Consequently, the same class of ship had been carrying a fortune in credits prior to it's theft, which was what brought the two out to the system in the first place.[8]

Three of these ships also intercepted Princess Leia Organa's convoy after the Battle of Hoth.[9]
