The Battle of Flashpoint Station was one of the earliest skirmishes fought between Mandalorian and Republic forces prior to the main Mandalorian invasion of the Galactic Republic. It occurred in the year 3,964 BBY during the Mandalorian Wars. It was one of many relatively minor border disputes that broke out along the Outer Rim Territories during the Mandalorians' war of expansion and subjugation in the regions beyond Republic space. Flashpoint Stellar Research Station was a Republic facility located along the Outer Rim, proximate to a number of conquered worlds seized by the Mandalorians. What is known is that control of the station was wrested away from the Republic during a period when Mandalorian expansion in the Outer Rim had seemingly been halted, and four months prior to the Fourth Battle of Suurja. Flashpoint Station's capture was the first Mandalorian victory in over eight months.
