The Hutt Empire had been competing with the empire Xim had carved out in the Tion Cluster for control of the Si'Klaata Cluster for some time. The planet Vontor was the focal area of the cluster's control along the Hutt's route of invasion.
The battle was a complete disaster for Xim, as he lost his entire fleet in the naval confrontation.
Although Xim's fleet was wiped out by the Hutts, he would continue to press his claim at the Second Battle of Vontor.
