"I've seen war. I know its shape. I know its margins. But I'll never be comfortable with it."
Mon Mothma[src]

In the months following the Battle of Endor, New Republic and Galactic Empire forces fought a battle on the planet Naalol. While the battle ended in the New Republic's favor, the devastation led Chancellor Mon Mothma to consider relinquishing the emergency powers that had been granted to the Charter of the Chancellor following the reconstitution of the Galactic Senate on Chandrila.


During the Imperial Era, the planet Naalol was a strategically insignificant planet that was home to mountain towns, valdeer shepherds, artisans, and miners. The Galactic Empire established a small garrison on the planet. When the Empire began losing ground after the Battle of Endor, it retreated to fallback worlds such as Naalol. The Empire established a large garrison near a town on Naalol, making the town and planet a target of the New Republic, the successor government to the Alliance to Restore the Republic.[2]

The battleEdit

Imperial and New Republic forces clashed around a town in the mountains of the planet Naalol. During the course of the battle, many soldiers on both sides were killed, and the town was all but destroyed.[2]


"War is not a state of being. It is meant to be a temporary chaos between periods of peace."
Mon Mothma[src]

After the battle's conclusion, New Republic forces rounded up the surrendered Imperial troops with electronic restraints and led them away in a prison transport. Chancellor Mon Mothma, and her advisers, Hostis Ij and Auxi Kray Korbin, also walked through the city, aiding injured civilians. It was then that Mon Mothma revealed her intention to give up the emergency powers that had been granted to the office of Supreme Chancellor by the Galactic Senate before the Clone Wars. She also announced that she was planning on reducing the New Republic's army by ninety percent. Auxi supported the Chancellor's proposal but Hostis warned that demilitarization would only lead to smaller civil wars.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Battle of Naalol first appeared in an interlude chapter in Chuck Wendig's 2015 novel Aftermath, the first installment in Star Wars: The Aftermath Trilogy and a part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens series. This chapter was written from the point of view of Mon Mothma, a secondary character in the novel.
