Operation: Knightfall
Operation Knightfall
Information
Era(s):

Galactic Empire

Class3

Operation: Knightfall was an operation and tactic by the Grand Army of the Republic, before it's dissolving into the Galactic Empire. It played a major role in Order 66.

Description Edit

Operation: Knightfall was an operation that would only take place if Order 66 was activated in whole for all Jedi. Each order was programmed into the inhibitor chip that was planted in all clone troopers brains.[1] Like all the contingency orders, when delivered to the clones, they were to be executed without hesitation.[2] Despite memorizing the orders, if the chip was removed, for cases such as Fives,[1] Rex,[3] Gregor[3] and Wolffe,[3] they would execute the order or not on their own personal accord.

If Order 66 was initiated, Operation: Knightfall would be enacted. The operation entailed a unit of the Grand Army of the Republic would go to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant and execute the Jedi there. The order and operation were both carried out in 19 BBY.[2]

Prelude Edit

In 19 BBY, Jedi General Anakin Skywalker discovered that Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine was a Sith Lord, who went by Darth Sidious. He reported his discovery to Jedi General Mace Windu, who took three Jedi Masters - Saesee Tiin, Agen Kolar and Kit Fisto - to arrest the Sith Lord. However, once they confronted him, he dispatched Tiin and Kolar instantly, Fisto following shortly afterwards. Windu managed to hold him off until Skywalker came to assist, against his orders, which eventually resulted in turning. Skywalker cut off Windu's hand, which shortly thereafter resulted in his death.[2]

From there, Sidious dubbed Skywalker, Darth Vader. The newly deemed Sith Lord was assigned to go to the Jedi Temple and execute the Jedi there. He did so, taking the 501st Legion along with him.[2] The few commandos on planet and the Coruscant Guard were assigned to be on perimeter.[4][5]
