Liberating the Blackguard was a painting available in the galaxy sometime after the Battle of Yavin during the Galactic Civil War, a series of conflicts between the Galactic Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic. It depicted the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Blackguard in a basic blueprint style with various angles of the starship. The painting's title refers to the liberation of the Blackguard from its mutinous captain, Andal Sait, by a group of spacers.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Liberating The Blackguard is a painting that appeared in the 2003 massively multi-player online role-playing game Star Wars Galaxies developed by Sony Online Entertainment and published by LucasArts. The player could receive it as a reward for completing the "DePalma's Dispatch" collection which required the player to pilot and land their own ship onto the Blackguard a total of twenty-five times. The player could only receive credit for landing on the Blackguard every six hours. The painting and collection were added to the game on January 15, 2008 as part of the Chapter 8: The Nova Orion Crisis game update. The player could use the painting in one of their personal buildings as decoration.[1]
