A battle occurred on the planet Herdessa in 22 BBY six days after the First Battle of Geonosis, the first battle of the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. During the battle, the All Terrain Recon Transports of Lightning Squadron located a weak point in the Confederacy's battle line and raided the Multi-Troop Transport that housed the Confederacy's central computer, temporarily shutting down their battle droids and giving the 121st Regiment time to push past the enemy's heavy artillery.

- ↑ "Republic HoloNet News Special Inaugural Edition 16:5:241"—Star Wars Insider 84 dates Palpatine's acquisition of emergency powers to 13:5:21, and the end of the Clone Wars to 16:5:23. The First Battle of Geonosis happens shortly afterwards, as The Essential Atlas states that Mace Windu's forces used military clearance to bypass customs checkpoints as they raced to Geonosis along the Corellian Run. As a result, the First Battle of Geonosis occurs on or shortly after 13:5:21. Additionally, Galaxy at War places the Herdessa battle six days after Geonosis.
