The Beauty of Yevetha was a Imperial corvette-type patrol ship. Originally serving with the Black Sword Command, the vessel formed part of Yevethan leader Nil Spaar's fleet after the Yevetha captured it circa 4 ABY.
An Imperial corvette, the Beauty of Yevetha was destroyed during the New Republic's attempt to blockade the Koornacht Cluster-based planet Doornik-319 in 17 ABY. New Republic pilot Rone Taggar sacrificed himself and his personal X-wing recon fighter after being caught by the Beauty of Yevetha's tractor beam, setting the starfighter's self-destruct sequence before it was drawn into a hangar bay, detonating his astromech and the fighter, along with himself. The Beauty of Yevetha was lost in the resulting explosion, along with all hands aboard. Kol Attan, the Yevethan proctor of defense, was summarily rendered a to-mara, a shamed one, by Yevethan leader Nil Spaar for failing to take into account Taggar's choice of actions.
Behind the scenesEdit
- "According to Ayddar, the order of battle for Black Sword includes forty-four capital ships which we have not seen nor heard of since the fall of the Emperor. None smaller than a Victory-class Star Destroyer. Three are Superclass vessels."
- ―The quote that raises the question of the Beauty of Yevetha's class
The Beauty of Yevetha appears in the novel Shield of Lies by Michael P. Kube-McDowell, in which the ship is featured in a short action segment. The identification of the Beauty of Yevetha as a corvette is potentially anomalous, considering that the order of battle for Black Sword Command, the fleet from which most of the Yevethan-controlled Imperial vessels are purloined in the novel, includes nothing smaller than a Victory-class star destroyer, according to the previous novel, Before the Storm.
