The Ravager was a ship in the service of the Old Republic during the Mandalorian Wars. One of a fleet of Republic capital ships resembling the later Star Destroyers, the Ravager left the Republic along with most of its brethren at Malachor V. The Sith Lord Darth Nihilus took the ship from the graveyard in orbit around the planet, making it his personal flagship.

Technically unspaceworthy, the Ravager was held together by Nihilus' will, making it comparable to the ancient tales of ghost ships held on many worlds. Its hull was blasted open in several places and shielded only by its magnetic field.

After the Great Sith War, the Ravager had become very common in the Republic fleet. However, they had proven to be no match for the fire power of the heaviest Mandalorian cruisers. During the final battle above the skies on Malachor V, the Ravager was assigned as protection for the Leviathan. None of the Ravager-class ships managed to survive the last battle, and after the end of the war, the Republic decided to end production of these cruisers.

During the Battle of Telos, the Jedi Exile, Visas Marr, Canderous Ordo, and a group of Mandalorian warriors boarded the ship and set several proton charges in weakened areas of the ship's hull. Together they traveled to the bridge and defeated Darth Nihilus, before escaping as the charges detonated, finally laying the ship to rest.
