In 19 ABY, Iphigin was the site of a conference organized by the New Republic Chief of State, Ponc Gavrisom, to solve an Ishori–Diamal dispute. Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Luke Skywalker were present to conduct the negotiations when the pirates arrived in the system.
This raid was part of the large destabilization campaign launched by Moff Disra against the New Republic. The Cavrilhu Pirates played a large role in his plan. He provided them with information, and the last of Mount Tantiss's clones while they attacked the New Republic ships.
- "It's an old trick: you call an alert on some ship coming in sun-side, then hit a nightside target while Customs is busy half a planet away."
- ―Han Solo
The attack began when the pirates sent a suspect Sarkan freighter in the sun-side of the planet, calling a Iphigini Customs red alert. Han Solo guessed it was a diversion and decided to intervene. As expected, a pirate fleet arrived soon after in the nightside and attacked two New Republic transports. The Millennium Falcon and Luke's X-wing immediately engaged them. While Luke attacked the Corsair fighters, Han and Chewbacca destroyed the powerful KDY a-4 ion cannon of a old Kaloth cruiser. After Skywalker had managed to destroy all the fighters, the remaining pirates forces escaped in hyperspace. One of the Corellian Gunships was considerably damaged by the two armed transports.
During the battle, the Jedi Master was profoundly affected when he felt the pirate crews were made of clones. He decided to investigate more about this. Han Solo later requested Talon Karrde to assist the Jedi in his search. Karrde sent Mara Jade to help Skywalker in his infiltration of the Cavrilhu base in the Kauron asteroid field.
