Description: The IGV-55 surveillance vessel, or Imperial listener ship, was a starship model used by the Galactic Empire for surveillance, intel, and recon. Utilized by Imperial Intelligence's Information Office, these vessels monitored communications and scanned data, looking for signs of seditious activities. They were similar to Gozanti-class cruisers, although extensively modified with additional sensors and transmitter dishes.

In 2 BBY, a team of Imperial intelligence officers and slicers led by the Imperial controller LT-319 operated on an IGV-55 surveillance vessel. This starship was modified to include a strong signal array capable of transmitting and intercepting signals from long distances. Under the leadership LT-319, the team hijacked the rebel astromech droid Chopper and attempted to use him to find the location of the Phoenix Cell's Chopper Base. However, their plot was foiled by Chopper's master Hera Syndulla, who transmitted a massive data surge which overwhelmed the cruiser's systems and compromised the fuel cells, causing an explosion which destroyed the ship and its crew.

Hello Guys,

I didn't realise before looking at this episode that they were no dedicated intel gathering spaceship in Empire arsenal. This kind of ship with its cyborg crew fill the purpose with a surgical efficiency!

And I love that it's a standard Gozanti Class, modified for a dedicated function. Given we've seen that with the AT-AT (AT-ACT), Tie Fighters, and various Stormtroopers, I love the fact that the Empire cuts corners and saves money on it's Capital ships too. Would have loved to have seen Gozanti's with hangars, extra weapons, etc as well.
