This article is about a battle near New Cov. You may be looking for the Raid on New Cov.
"Well…I suppose the only one that really qualifies would be a short but violent battle off New Cov in the Churba sector."
―Leia Organa Solo, to Han Solo[src]

A short but violent battle occurred near the planet New Cov between the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War.[2] A month after General Garm Bel Iblis forces' raid on Tangrene, Bel Iblis met the Alliance member Borsk Fey'lya. The Bothan agreed to support Garm Bel Iblis's movement and set up a supply line through New Cov.[1] The battle began when four Bothan starships under the command of Fey'lya found an Imperial Victory-class Star Destroyer investigating New Cov in the Churba sector. The Bothan ships kept the Star Destroyer busy until a Star Cruiser arrived to reinforce them.[2] The battle allowed Fey'lya and Bel Iblis to keep their alliance secret for years.[1] In 9 ABY, Han and Leia Organa Solo spoke of the battle while discussing Borsk Fey'lya's war activities.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

The battle was first mentioned in the 1992 novel Dark Force Rising, which was written by Timothy Zahn.
