"If this is a consular ship, where is the Ambassador?"

The Tantive IV was a CR90 corvette in the service of the House of Organa. The ship was a central player in the events following the end of the Clone Wars and the beginning of the Galactic Civil War.
Princess Leia Organa traveled onboard the Tantive IV when it was intercepted by the Imperial Star Destroyer Devastator. In the following battle, the main reactor of the Tantive IV was shut down and the ship was boarded by Imperial Stormtroopers. Soon thereafter, the Tantive IV was destroyed by the Imperials.
As a vessel of state, the ship featured dining rooms for hosting state dinners as well as conference centers suitable for negotiations with interstellar dignitaries.
