"This is a consular ship… we're on a diplomatic mission…"
"If this is a consular ship, where is the Ambassador?"
―Captain Antilles and Darth Vader[src]

The Tantive IV (pronounced /ˈtæntɪˌvi 'fɔ:r/) was a CR90 corvette[1] in the service of the House of Organa.[2] The ship was a central player in the events at the beginning of the Galactic Civil War.[2]


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.[19]


The ship was used by Bail Organa as a mobile headquarters during his duties as an Imperial Senator for Alderaan. It was briefly broken into once by Ahsoka Tano in her quest to speak with Organa. It assisted with the evacuation of Raada and was captained by Raymus Antilles.[20]

Five years before the Battle of Yavin, the Spectres returned C-3PO and R2-D2 to Organa aboard the Tantive IV.[12]

Princess Leia Organa boarded the Tantive IV with the intention of travelling to Tatooine to meet with the exiled Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi. Before she could depart however, the Battle of Scarif broke out. Towards the end of the battle, the Tantive IV was docked inside the crippled Rebel flagship Profundity, and barely managed to launch and escape the battle with the stolen schematics of the Death Star before Darth Vader could board it to recover them.[10]

The Tantive IV then headed to Tatooine, but was pursued and intercepted by the Imperial Star Destroyer Devastator. In the following battle, the main reactor of the Tantive IV was shut down, and Imperial stormtroopers boarded the ship.[7] Soon thereafter, the Imperials destroyed the Tantive IV.[2]

The Tantive IV was fitted with at least two escape pods, one of which carried the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 to Tatooine.[7]
