The Imperialis was a luxury pleasure craft owned by Supreme Chancellor and eventually Galactic Emperor Sheev Palpatine during the Galactic Civil War. According to Sava Korin Pers, the Imperialis might have been a custom job by Raith Sienar himself.
It was in service as early as 25 BBY, when it would be used ferry Chancellor Palpatine and his adviser, Yupe Tashu to Jakku for their excavation of the Plaintive Hand plateau. On one occasion it picked up a stowaway, Gallius Rax, future Fleet Admiral of the Galactic Empire.
It would later be stolen by gambler Lando Calrissian and his team sometime after the battle of Yavin. The ship contained a collection of Sith artifacts that were guarded by two members of the Emperor's Royal Guard.
