In January 2819 captain Nanda Tessala assumed command of the Legatus Arquitens-class Provocateur. Patrolling the borders of subjugated Kingdom of the Netherlands borders it found herself under attack when responding to a distress call from Rottum. The ship was disabled by SF-16s and was unable to prevent the theft of those starfighters.
After repairs the ship was assigned to Raptor Squadron where it saw action against Dutch dissidents at Altena. Afterwards it participated in the hunt for resistance members and engaged them at Tar Kuuraen in the Cyrannus Galaxy. The creature Stench rammed the light freighter Falcon into the Provocateur, heavily damaging the vessel and disabling it. Requiring intensive repairs the ship was re-launched in 2820 duirng the Quadrantia Contingency Plan.
In August 2820, the Provocateur took part in the battle against a fleet of Dinotopian Republic star destroyer and managed to destroy them. In September 2820, the Provocateur participated in the second battle of Ramgotheria. After hours of battle with neither side gaining an advantage of each other, the Provocateur and the rest of the Imperial fleet was ordered to withdraw and fall back to Pauvenris.
