The Battle of Taronda was an event that occurred on the remote mining planet of Taronda around 22 BBY.[note 1]

Event[]

Prelude[]

To fuel the war effort, the Galactic Republic sought to make additional trade deals for raw materials. A delegation headed by Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano was sent to Taronda to negotiate with the local miners for a deal. However, CIS forces were aware of this and sought to prevent the action from occurring.[1]

Battle[]

Taronda system

Republic reinforcements arrive

A Separatist landing force led by Asajj Ventress was sent to Taronda, containing a massive amount of tanks and battle droid units. The Republic delegation, only consisting of two Jedi and a few troopers, retreated to a central deflector shield for protection. The CIS forces were close to annihilating the delegation, but a Venator-class Star Destroyer arrived in time to save the Republic forces. The Separatists were driven out and fled the planet.[1]

Notes[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 This event was featured in the comic "Keep the Faith!". It is set before the Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode "Heroes on Both Sides" (21–20 BBY), which marks the debut of revamped appearances for several main characters. Considering that the comics featured in Star Wars Comic UK are published in chronological order, and that "Burn the Behemoth!" is the first comic in the series to feature the new character models, it can be concluded that "Keep the Faith!", and thus the events of the story, take place sometime around 22 BBY.
