At some point after the Battle of Endor, the New Republic captured the planet Basilisk from the Galactic Empire. The Page's Commandos, led by Lieutenant Judder Page, were dispatched by New Republic High Command onto the planet, where they destroyed a shield generator that powered cannons, placed an electrified net over a hangar launch chute and grounded a wing of TIE fighters, and penetrated the Imperial Governor Nistola's heavily armed flying fortress, forcing his surrender. A New Republic invasion force led by General Garret then landed and was able to take the capital without firing a shot.
