Ord Mantell had been turned into a refugee relief world by this point in the war, with thousands of displaced citizens crowding on the planet and in the Jubilee Wheel space station in orbit. The Yuuzhan Vong launched a terror attack against Ord Mantell, hoping that the projected deaths of countless refugees would do much to destabilize the already floundering New Republic.
However, the allied forces were lying in wait for the Yuuzhan Vong. A fleet commanded by General Yald Sutel engaged the enemy warships as they emerged from hyperspace. Both fleets were roughly evenly matched in terms of numbers and firepower—at least, until the Yuuzhan Vong revealed their dread weapon.
Following the destruction of the fleet's flagship battlecruiser, a lone Miid ro'ik warship launched a Dread Weapon beast at the Jubilee Wheel, causing major damage to the station. The beast was originally thought to be trying to deprive the station's inhabitants of air, until it began to eat victims, to be held within its belly until recovered and used as slaves by the invaders.
Han Solo was one of the few to escape the beast's clutches, piloting a stolen shuttle away from the Wheel to a fateful rendezvous with Reck Desh and the Peace Brigade. By this time, Ord Mantell had fallen to the Yuuzhan Vong. The Jubilee Wheel was also where Han Solo first encountered Droma, a Ryn who would eventually become leader of the Ryn Network.
