Operation Strong Hand was the New Republic Defense Force's final push of the Black Fleet Crisis.

After Luke Skywalker convinced Wialu to contribute the illusionary skills of the White Current to the New Republic, a scheme was devised to crush the Yevethan fleet at N'zoth.

Under the command of General Etahn A'baht and his Commodores Corgan, Mauit'ta, Morano, Poqua, and Grekk 9, the New Republic forces inflicted heavy damage on the Yevethan fleet before the Camp Pa'aal Squadron survivors seized control of the Imperial warships and fled to the Core.
