Background: The Detainer CC-2200 was a model of Interdictor cruiser used by the Galactic Empire’s Imperial Navy. Like the newer-model CC-7700 frigate, the Detainer CC-2200 had a downsloping bow and stubby wing-like projections, each of which housed four gravity well projectors that could be used to pull vessels from hyperspace. The cruisers were thickly armored and had downsloping bows.

In 14 BBY, a Detainer CC-2200 was being developed for use by the Galactic Empire’s Deep Core Security Zone. Moff Wilhuff Tarkin requisitioned the vehicle for use in a task force that aimed to capture the Corvette Carrion Spike, which had been stolen from Tarkin by a rebel cell. Tarkin planned to use the CC-2200, along with a newer-model CC-7700 frigate and a newly developed and untested Immobilizer 418 cruiser, to pull the Carrion Spike from hyperspace in the Obroa-skai system, which the Imperials estimated the corvette would pass through based on a homing beacon they had on the ship.

Once the three cruisers activated their interdiction fields, the Immobilizer’s overcurrent resistors failed to prevent the cruiser’s gravitic systems from redlining, creating a far stronger field than necessary. Ships began to be pulled from hyperspace, and those in the system were dragged toward the interdictors. The field was momentarily turned off but then reactivated, pulling the large Mon Calamari star cruiser Stellar Vista from hyperspace. The larger vessel broadsided the CC-2200 out of control before spinning to impale its dorsal surface on the interdictor’s bow. An explosion on the Mon Calamari vessel knocked the CC-2200 ninety degrees out of position. The interdictors failed to capture the Carrion Spike and its crew, who had become aware of the homing beacon and transferred it to a YT-1000 freighter named the Reticent, which the Imperials did capture.
