Description: The Coronet was a luxurious spaceliner constructed by Kalevala Spaceworks as a testament to Mandalorian engineering. Used as the personal starship of Duchess Satine of the New Mandalorians, the Coronet was the only ship of its kind, designed and furnished with the finest materials Mandalorian space had to offer. Over two hundred meters in height, the Coronet was divided between stately cabins and elegant halls at its top, and utilitarian crew quarters and cargo holds in its long ventral spine. Despite the New Mandalorians' dedication to peace, the Coronet was equipped with both laser and ion cannons for defense.
By the time of the Clone Wars, the Coronet saw significant use transporting Republic tourists to the planet Mandalore, and officials in the New Mandalorian government as well as Mandalorian entrepreneurs took advantage of the starliner's journeys between Mandalorian space and the Core Worlds to import and export cargo. Around 21 BBY, Duchess Kryze utilized the Coronet on a trip to the Republic capital world of Coruscant, to speak before the Galactic Senate. During this journey, however, the Coronet was attacked by Separatist battle droids aligned with the Mandalorian Death Watch splinter group, in an attempt to capture or kill Kryze. Fortunately for the New Mandalorian leader, Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker—along with a detachment of Republic clone troopers—were aboard, and managed to neutralize the droid attackers, saving Kryze and the Coronet, which safely landed on Coruscant.
The vessel was built on Kalevala, the home planet of the Duchess Satine. It was considered to be a flying palace, with the interior being ornately decorated. The ship carried many 3PO-series protocol droids, BD-3000 luxury droids and LEP servant droids. It had an interior cargo hold.
Around 22 BBY, the ship traveled to the planet of Mandalore to transport Duchess Satine Kryze to Coruscant. Before the ship left, Senator Tal Merrik had several boxes marked with the Senate seal smuggled on board. These boxes contained assassin probes. During the trip, the probes were released and unsuccessfully tried to kill the Duchess. Soon after, the vessel was attacked by three Separatist Droch-class boarding ships that released battle droids onto the Coronet.
I only just watched the episode set aboard the Coronet, and I completely agree, it's way bigger than I thought. Although the episode only shows a dozen or so Clone Troopers, plus the council members and assistants aboard, I think there's probably room for loads more, I'll update accordingly.
Made them higher, but not too much higher, it's still one of the most luxurious ships out there, wide corridors, massive cabins and dining facilities, and the cargo is so the passengers can take their speeders, and luxuries along with them.
yes much better!!
I think perhaps the D/6 Skeleton crew idea needs a rethink to tell the truth. In the situation with the Coronet (and a couple of episodes earlier with the Brain Worm controlled Clone Troopers) shows only 1 or 2 people piloting a ship. I imagine that there's engineers and the like below decks, who are required for the ship to move, but aren't aware of what's going on in the cockpit. So the number of people to operate the vessel might be higher, but those required to pilot it may be much lower (and of course a man with a gun on the flight deck might be able to control the ship by himself.
