In 4 ABY, during the Galactic Civil War, the Galactic Empire launched a blockade of the planet Chandrila.[2] Initially planned around the time of the Battle of Endor to suppress the last flames of rebellion after the planned victory at Endor,[3] the blockade was delayed. It was eventually performed by seven Star Destroyers six months after Endor; some believed that Grand Vizier Sate Pestage ordered the blockade as a means of holding Chandrila hostage to forestall the New Republic's advance on Coruscant.[2]
