- "The Chancellor's signal is coming from right there. The observation platform at the top of that spire."
- ―Obi-Wan Kenobi
A tower spire was the communications pod of the Invisible Hand, a Separatist Providence-class dreadnought present during the Battle of Coruscant. A section of the tower was outfitted by Count Dooku, a Sith apprentice.
During the battle, Chancellor Sheev Palpatine was kidnapped by General Grievous and placed in the tower; however, Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker managed to locate him with R2-D2, and managed to rescue him from the General's clutches.
