A battle was fought above the planet Kessel in 11 ABY.


Following a New Republic attack on the Maw Installation, Tol Sivron and most of the personnel there escaped from the Maw Cluster aboard the Death Star prototype.[1]

The BattleEdit

The Death Star prototype arrived outside Kessel and Sivron planned test it's giant turbolaser, by using it to destroy Kessel.[1] However it missed and destroyed Kessel's Garrison Moon instead.

The Smugglers' Alliance was beginning a spice mining operation on Kessel and sent out some ships to attack the prototype, commanded by Mara Jade, who was aboard the Millennium Falcon.[1] The prototype tried to respond by firing it's turbolaser at them, but most of the smuggler's ships were able to avoid it, because they were small and fast.

The Smugglers' Alliance forces pulled back to regroup and Sivron used this as an opportunity to return to the Maw.[1] Just before it was able to leave, the Falcon secretly secured itself onto the prototype, using it's landing claw, and accompanied it on it's journey back.


The Smugglers' Alliance had been planning to use the Garrison Moon as a base for their mining operations, so the destruction of it was a major setback for them.[1]

The Death Star prototype returned to the Maw, where the arrival of Admiral Daala's Star Destroyer, the Gorgon, was turning the tide of the battle in favor of the Empire.[1]
