After learning of the rebellion's losses at the battle on Garel, Imperial senator Bail Organa of Alderaan dispatched his daughter, Princess Leia Organa, along with three Hammerhead corvettes — P1, P2 and P3 — to Lothal to expand the rebel fleet, under the guise of delivering relief supplies to the people of Lothal. The princess planned for the rebels to steal them to conceal Alderaan's involvement with the rebellion, but Lieutenant Yogar Lyste installed gravity locks to prevent the corvettes from taking off. With the help of former Lothal governor Ryder Azadi, who had constructed the locks while he was in prison, the rebels were able to commandeer the corvettes and add them to their growing fleet.
In the second year before the Battle of Yavin the former Sith Lord Maul assaulted one of the rebellion's corvettes. He interrogated the crew, leading to Maul capturing the Ghost personnel in order to unlock holocrons.
Behind the scenesEdit
Hammerhead corvettes first appeared in "A Princess on Lothal," the tenth episode of the second season of Star Wars Rebels, which also saw the introduction of Princess Leia Organa on the show. The ships are based on the Hammerhead-class cruisers from the now Legends video game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
