Following the New Republic victory against Moff Getelles of the Antemeridian sector, the New Republic pushed through the neutral Borderland Regions toward the Hydian Way, border of the Imperial Space. The Moffs of the Imperial Remnant, fearing the shift of power in the region, ordered Admiral Gilad Pellaeon to move his forces across the Hydian Way. Torn away from his campaign against the planet Adumar, Pellaeon brought his forces into the fight against the New Republic. The Imperial forces defeated the New Republic in the Lucazec and Barison systems and continued their progression.
In the Arda system, the Imperial forces once again engaged New Republic forces and inflicted them substantial casualties but this time they were not able to secure a victory. They were forced to retreat to the Celanon system.
