Major Battles Of The Republic And Empire
« on: March 11, 2006, 05:21 PM »
Note: I am only writing blurbs for battles I know a lot about.

Battle Of Geonosis:

The Battle Of Geonosis started when a taskforce of 200 Jedi went to Geonosis to rescue Anakin, Obi-Wan and Padme. At the end of the arena battle the Jedi warriors were outnumbered, and with 50% of their taskforce dead. It would have been a CIS victory if not for the speedy arrival of Yoda and his army of 4 legions of Clone Troopers. The end result was a Republic victory, but at a price. In the end, 60% of the Clone Troopers had been killed, and 70% of the Jedi had been killed.

Battle Of Kamino:

When Quinlon Vos and Aayla Secura heard plans of a CIS attack on Kamino, they immediatly warned the Republic. Around 15 Jedi, including Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, traveled to Kamino to help the Kaminoans. They engaged the Droid fleet in their Jedi Starfighters, but the battle wasn't looking good. They woudl've lost if not for the Kaminoans choice of sending three ARC Troopers into battle, to turn the tide.

Battle Of Muunilist:

Muunilist was a major CIS stronghold, and a major Droid factory. Palpatine decided that by capturing Muunilist, the CIS would be crippled. 5 companys of Clones, led by Obi-Wan, engaged the CIS forces on Muunilist. A squad of ARC Troopers, led by Captain Fordo, blew up the CIS heavy gun battery that was devestating Republic troops. After Obi-Wan defeated bounty hunter Durge, San Hill surrendered.

Battle Of Hypori:

Palpatine ordered a team of 8 Jedi, led by Daakmen Barrek, and a legion of clones to go to Hypori and shut down the Droid foundrys. Barrek's Acclamator-Class was ambushed by General Grievous, commanding from his flagship, the Invisible Hand. The Acclamator-Class crashed upon the planets surface, and the Droid army closed in on the crashed ship. Grievous then went to the ruins of the ship and fought the 8 Jedi by himself. Only Ki-Adi-Mundi, Aayla Secura, and Shaak Ti survived, but only because of the right timing arrival of ARC Trooper Fordo and his team of 12 ARC Troopers.

Battle Of Nelvaan:

Obi-Wan and Anakin were sent to the Nelvaan system to investigate reports of sightings of General Grievous. When they arrived on the planet Anakin's company of Clones were attacked by a giant creature. Anakin defeated the creature, but found out he interrupted the quest of a young nelvaan warrior. When he took Anakin and Obi-Wan to the nelvaan camp, Anakin found out he was the propesized "Ghost Hand" who would end the icy climate of Nelvaan. Anakin eventually found a secret CIS outpost where the Skakoan scientests working there were mutating Nelvaan warriors into hideous beasts. Anakin freed the Nelvaan warriors from their trance and slaughtered all the Skakoan scientests.

Battle Of Coruscant:

When Grievous swept into the Republic capital of Coruscant and kidnapped Chancellor Palpatine, the Battle Of Coruscant began. Obi-Wan and Anakin flew their Jedi Interceptors into the hangar bay of Grievous flagship, the Invisible Hand. After killing Count Dooku they rescued the Chancellor. They were able to fly the half of the ship down to Coruscant, bringing Palpatine back safely.

A New Order:

As Order 66 was executed and the Republic transformed into the Galactic Empire, many battles of the Clone Wars ended and many new ones would occur in the years to come.

Battle Of Utapau:

Clone Intelligence Units reported that General Grievous was on Utapau, so the Jedi Council sent Obi-Wan to investigate. He discovered that the CIS had held the Utapauns, led by Tion Medon, hostage. Obi-Wan located Grievous then engaged him in a lightsaber dual. Meanwhile, several battalions of Clone Troopers, led by Commander Cody, fought the Droid forces on Utapau. Near the end of the battle the Republic became an Empire and Order 66 was initiated. Cody ordered an AT-TE Tank to fire on Obi-Wan, riding his Boga. Obi-Wan plunged into the sinkhole below. The battle ended with the Empire placing Utapau under marshall law and Obi-Wan escaping in Grievous's Strike Bomber.

Battle Of Felucia:

Aayla Secura and the 327th Star Corps were ordered to hunt down CIS Leader Shui Mai, who was supposedly hiding in the Felucia system. The Republic found out Shui Mai had fled, but they still engaged the Droid forces. The battle ended with an Imperial victory, and Aayla being killed by her own troops.

Battle Of Saleucami:

During a Republic mop-up effort on the dusty world of Saleucami, Order 66 was executed and Commander Neyo and his 91st Recon Corps fired on Jedi Stass Allie, killing her.

Battle Of Kashyyyk:

The Jedi Council thought that General Grevious might be on Kashyyyk, so they sent Master Yoda, a friend of the native wookies, to investigate. He was accompanied by Luminara Undali and Clone Commanders Gree and Faie and Gree's 41st Elite Scout Troopers. Order 66 was initiated during the battle and Gree and a Scout Trooper aimed their rifles at Yoda, but he executed both of them. Yoda then fled the planet and the Empire placed the planet under marshall law.

Battle Of The Jedi Temple:

Darth Vader led a legion of Stormtroopers, the 501st, on a mission to wipe out the Jedi known as Operation: Knightfall. The Stormtroopers purged the temple in mear hours. Shortly after, Yoda and Obi-Wan fought some of the remaining Stormtroopers when they wanted re-transmit the beacon to warn the surviving Jedi to stay away.

Battle Of Mygeeto:

Palpatine declared Mygeeto a planet that if captured, would be valuable in ending the war. The Republic sent Jedi Master Ki-Adi-Mundi to capture the CIS base on the icy world. He was accompanied by cold weather clone commander Bacara and his Galactic Marine Snowtroopers. The last stage of the battle was fought on a giant ice-bridge in the Banking Clan city. Bacara had access to UT-ATs, AT-RTs, and TX-130s during the battle. When almost all the Droid forces were decimated, Emperor Palpatine declared the Republic to be the Galactic Empire, and the Snowtroopers opened fire on Mundi, killing him. The battle was an Imperial victory.

Battle Of Eriadu:

The Battle Of Eriadu was a small conflict during the early years of the Empire. Jedi Bultar Swan and Tsui Choi retreated to Eriadu after Order 66. A squad of Stormtroopers went to the planet to track down the Jedi duo. In the end the two Jedi killed all of the Stormtroopers, then retreated to Kessel.

2nd Battle Of Naboo:

When Queen Apailana was thought to be harboring Jedi fugitives, Lord Vader sent a legion of Stormtroopers to execute the queen. They succeded, and they killed every single Jedi the queen was harboring.

2nd Battle Of Kamino:

Around 7 years after the Clone Wars, Kamino rebelled with a batch of Kamino-loyal clones. The Empire sent a platoon of Stormtroopers to put down the clone uprising. They were led by Boba Fett, who had an intimate knowledge of Kamino. When the rebellious Kaminoans tried to escape in a LAAT Gunship, a stormtrooper commander destroyed the gunship with his minimag PTL rocket launcher. Boba Fett then fled the battle.

Battle Of The Death Star Prison Break:

The prison halls of the still-classified Death Star began to rapidly fill with detainees. A large portion of the prisoners were Rebel Troopers and Wookies from Kashyyyk. 12 years into the Empire's rule, several prisoners, all Jedi, were organizing a jailbreak with their fellow inmates. They broke out of their cells the next month. The Imperial Troops stationed on the Death Star did their best to put down the rebellion. In the end the troops defeated most of the Rebels, even the Jedi. But all except for a single severly wounded Bothan Spy, who managed to steal the plans to the Death Star and pilot a Imperial Lander out of the Death Star.

Battle Of The Tantive IV:

When the Tantive IV was beamed the Death Star Plans from Polis Massa, they were instantly on the run from the Empire. Vader's Star Destroyer used a tractor beam to capture the ship, then Vader and a legion of Imperial Troops boarded the ship. Princess Leia of Alderran put the plans inside R2-D2, and R2 and C-3P0 escaped in one of the rebel ships escape pods. Vader then captured Leia and took her prisoner.

Battle Of Yavin:

When the Empire found out the location of the Rebel base of operations, the Death Star moved to Yavin. A squadron of speedy X-Wing Fighters, led by Gold Leader, went out to destroy the Death Star by firing a proton torpedo into one of the Death Stars exhaust ports. Lord Vader then decided he would go out and engage the Rebel ships, with the help of several TIE Fighters. In the end Luke Skywalker was able to make this one-in-a-million shot, after many pilots shortly before had failed. Luke blew up the Death Star, but at a price. The only Rebel pilots left were Luke, Wedge Antilles, and a unknown Y-Wing pilot.

Battle Of Massassi Temple:

Some stormtroopers and other imperial troops who crash landed on Yavin IV regrouped and planned a hit-and-run attack on the Massassi Temple. They succeded, and they killed the Bothan Leaders inside the temple.

Battle Of Hoth:

Still lusting for revenge even a year after the Battle Of Yavin, the Empire sent thousands of probe droids across the galaxy to search for the new Rebel base. They found the base in the Hoth system, so Darth Vader's Imperial Fleet traveled there. The Rebels had little time to evacuate, so they only took the essentials. A massive ground army, led by General Veers, were assigned to destroy the Rebel power generators. They destroyed the generators, and then a legion of Snowtroopers infiltrated Echo Base and engaged the remaining Rebel Troops. They decimated the Rebels still within the base, and Lord Vader executed some of them with his lightsaber. The Imperial Troops in Echo Base also salvaged many Rebel droids, weapons, and equipment. It was a crushing defeat for the Rebellion, and a huge victory for the Galactic Empire.

Battle Of Bespin:

When the Empire placed Bespin under marshall law, the Rebel Alliance sought to liberate Bespin. Shortly before the Battle Of Endor, they sent a legion of SpecForce Troopers to liberate Bespin. The Empire was not expecting an attack and was caught off guard. The result was a Rebel victory.

Battle Of Endor:

When the Rebel Alliance regrouped near Sullust, they devised a plan to destroy the Death Star II and the Imperial Fleet at Endor. The Rebels stole a small Imperial Shuttle, which Han Solo, Leia Organa, Luke, R2 and 3P0, and a team of Rebel Commandos would use to land on the forest moon of Endor. With the help of the native Ewoks, the team of Rebels penetrated the defenses of the Imperial Outpost on the moon and blew up the shield generator which protected the Death Star II. Meanwhile, Luke, now a jedi knight, engaged Darth Vader in a lightsaber dual. After Luke defeated him and Emperor Palpatine blasted him with force lightning, Vader hurled his master down the reactor tunnel, redeeming himself. Then, Lando Calrissian, Wedge Antilles, and Nien Nunb flew their ships into a Death Star II service tunnel and blew up the reactor core. This caused the Death Star II and half the Imperial Fleet to be completely decimated. This was one of the largest and most epic battles of the Galactic Civil War.

More coming soon!

Wow, that realy covers just about all of the major battles. I can only think of three other important ones: Jabiim(Clone Wars volume 3), Mon Calimari(Clone Wars Series one and Clone Wars adventures #1), Battle of Rhen Var(Battlefront 1 and Clone Wars Video Games), and the Battle of Thule (Clone Wars video games.) I am very curious about where you get your information, like for Geonosis, were did you find the casualty numbers. That was interesting, and on Kamino, I thought there were more than three ARC Troopers deployed. Well anyway, great job!

I might add some of the battles you listed later. I read a article about the Battle of Geonosis (On Wikipedia, I think) and I if memory serves me right I remember it said over half of the Clones and Jedi were killed. And on Kamino there could've been more ARCS deployed, but in the comic it shows only three fighting.
