The Instigator first entered Imperial service some two months after the end of the Clone Wars, acting as a cargo inspection vessel in the Coruscant system. The Empire later transferred the ship to the backwater Kwymar Sector, due to the political misfortune of its commander, to aid in the suppression of Rebel and other criminal elements. There it would remain for the remainder of the Galactic Civil War. It was eventually mothballed, and then put up for sale for scrapping. A buyer quickly arose in the Dark Council, under the same guise of a Corporate Sector Authority affiliate that had garnered them a shipbuilding contract with Kuat Drive Yards. The ship, and its full complement of support craft, was taken into the Brotherhood fold under a skeleton crew, and placed in a reserved storage yard at Xa Fel until the rest of the new fleet was assembled. The Instigator was allocated to Clan Plagueis in the aftermath of the Vong assault on the Brotherhood’s territories. It was eventually destroyed during the retreated from Kapsina during the Horizons Crisis
Instigator served on Task Force Deviant in a Defensive Designation. While her main task was the defense of Shintera during peacetime, she relocated to Kapsina to ensure defensive of the Capital during Wartime. Her first major defense was the 2nd Battle of Kapsina in 24 ABY.
