The Star Fortress over Hoth was one of many dozens, if not hundreds of Star Fortresses deployed by Emperor Arcann of the Eternal Empire to watch for possible uprisings on worlds subjugated during the Eternal Empire conquest. It was commanded by Exarch Jom Vanten and protected by multiple Skytroopers and Knights of Zakuul. The Star Fortresses was looming over the three-way war between the Sith Empire, the Galactic Republic and the White Maw pirates over the salvage of Hoth. In 3632 BBY the Arcona historian Hemdil Tre teamed up with the Commander of the Anti-Zakuul Alliance to take down the Star Fortress. Together they assembled a strike team that assaulted and destroyed the Hoth shield bunker protecting the Star Fortress before regrouping on the Alliance base on Odessen. From there, Theron Shan and Miot Dengd assisted the Commander in infiltrating the Star Fortress. After fighting their way through multiple levels of the station, the Commander was able to reach the Sun Generator room and engage the Exarch directly. During the fierce fighting, safety features of the Sun Generator were disabled and Exarch Jom Vanten was killed. The Commander barely managed to escape on the shuttle before the Sun Generator overloaded, vaporizing the entire Star Fortress and all of its remaining personnel.
