- "That ship's a tough old bastard, just like the Old Man..."
- ―An Imperial officer, about Chimaera and Pellaeon
Due to a clerical error in the Imperial database, the Chimaera did not become part of Admiral Natasi Daala's task force of four Star Destroyers stationed at and to protect the secret facility within the Maw. The vessel instead became the flagship of Grand Admiral Mitth'raw'nuruodo, during his successful campaign to lay the smackdown on the New Republic. It was, however, the site of his brutal murder at the hands of his Noghri bodyguard.
