1 Pilot, 1 Astromech Droid (optional)
The Phoenix was used by Ahsoka Tano and other diplomats to travel to the world of Mandalore for the first negotiations between Republic and Separatist delegates in the war. The ship was guarded by Captain Taggart and his men during the talks.After the talks failed, Ahsoka and Lux Bonteri escaped aboard the ship when they were pursued by Commando droids as a result of Lux accusing Count Dooku of his mother's murder and Dooku's subsequent orders to have Lux killed. Once in space, Ahsoka contacted Anakin Skywalker and informed him of what happened, and Anakin ordered her to return with Bonteri to Coruscant for his possible amnesty. But Lux had the intention of avenging his mother's death by killing Dooku. Lux subdued Ahsoka and piloted the vessel to the snowy planet, Carlac, where he met with the Mandalorian splinter group, Death Watch, and their leader, Pre Vizsla, whom he believed would help him achieve his goal.
After Ahsoka and Lux attempted to combat the Death Watch when they attacked a Ming Po village, they escaped the warriors aboard the Phoenix. But Lux chose to continue on his quest to kill Dooku and departed aboard the ship's escape pod.
