The assault on Filve was used as a feint to draw New Republic forces away from Ord Pardron, which in turn left the planet Ukio vulnerable. Grand Admiral Thrawn's forces attacked the planet but the Millennium Falcon and Rogue Squadron were present in the system. Leia Organa Solo was in diplomatic mission to Filve in order to reassure the Filvians but the Millennium Falcon didn't manage to reach the planet.
The Millennium Falcon and Rogue Squadron tried to flee, but Joruus C'baoth, coordinating the Battle at Ukio, sensed Leia Organa Solo's presence and sent Captain Brandei's entire fleet to capture her. The Rogues and the Falcon were eventually able to escape safely through the use of the Cracken Twist.
