Genue was a BFF-1 bulk freighter used by the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War. Genue was due to travel from the prison planet Mytus VII, aka Stars' End, to Kashyyyk when it was boarded by some escaped Rebel pilots, including Sam Raider and Toalagar.
The prisoners' escape was quickly discovered and a Delta-class DX-9 stormtrooper transport sent to board and search ships near Kashyyyk in an effort to recapture the prisoners.
The Rebel Alliance also learned of the escape and dispatched Captain Keyan Farlander with Lieutenant Cardacs, a friend of Raider, in R-22 Spearheads to lead a rescue mission. Farlander destroyed the Imperial transport just before it boarded the Genue and the Rebel Lambda-class shuttle Drago soon came and boarded the freighter in order to lead it to hyperspace, while the two R-22s repelled TIE fighter assaults from the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Intrepid. Cardacs was killed while protecting the boarding operation.
