During the time of the Galactic Civil War, Barkhesh's population resisted the New Order and supported the Rebel Alliance. They supplied the Alliance with vital materials after the Battle of Yavin despite Imperial retaliation. On the planet was sold an indigenous microbe-based Barkhesh Insect Culture which was deadly to insects and used as bug repellent by scouts. New Republic environmentalists decried the Culture.
Around six months after the pivotal Battle of Yavin, the Rebel's Rogue Squadron provided aerial cover for a small supply convoy on the planet's surface, which planned to travel through Imperial territory in the Great Temple Valley to rendezvous with a Rebel Alliance shuttle. The Empire caught wind of the operation, and sent a reasonably large force of AT-ST walkers and TIE/sa bombers to intercept the convoy of transports. Rogue Squadron successfully protected the convoy, destroying a large portion of the forces. After escaping the Imperial forces, the convoy rendezvoused with a Rebel Alliance Lambda-class T-4a shuttle.
