A battle on Felucia was one of the final conflicts of the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Jedi Knight Aayla Secura commanded the Republic's troops as they moved into position in readiness to engage the Separatists; however Palpatine gave word that Order 66 be carried out, leading to the clones turning on Secura and killing her.
Earlier in the Clone Wars, General Grievous of the Confederacy of Independent Systems had led an assault on Felucia and secured the planet for the Separatists. The Jedi Plo Koon, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Ahsoka Tano, Anakin's Padawan, were sent to resecure the planet. However, the clone trooper force was outnumbered and the Jedi were forced to retreat, failing their mission.
Jedi General Aayla Secura was sent to retake the planet. As she and her troopers of the 327th Star Corps marched to engage the droid army gathering in a clearing directly in front of them, Commander Bly received Order 66 and proceeded to shoot his commanding officer in the back before she could even react. Secura was finished off by fire from the clones surrounding her before full-scale combat operations could begin.

Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, in which this event takes place, is set as Year 13. Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, in which the Battle of Yavin takes place, is set as Year 32. Using simple math, we can deduce that this event took place nineteen years before the Battle of Yavin. . “0 10 10-13 13 27 32 35 36” (
