- "This has not been a good day for the Empire!"
- ―Wedge Antilles
The Second Battle of Phaeda occurred in 11 ABY.
Following the First Battle of Phaeda, New Republic forces on Phaeda retreated to the planet's Collo Fauale mountains, where after learning of the base from the traitor Tem Merkon, the Imperial ship Emperor's Revenge began bombarding the mountains.
When Lord Carnor Jax took the Emperor's Revenge to Yinchorr, he left the bombardment to Commander Vivant aboard the Steadfast. Commander Mirith Sinn, the head of New Republic operations on Phaeda, contacted New Republic High Command and ensured that support would be incoming. Rogue Squadron, piloting a collection of E-wings and B-wings, dropped out of hyperspace and engaged the Steadfast's complement of TIE fighters at over 2-1 odds, their first mission since they had been reorganized into a multi-fighter unit.
As Sinn climbed onto a captured Skipray Blastboat and joined the fight in orbit, however, General Wedge Antilles entered the system in the Super Star Destroyer Lusankya, forcing the surrender of Vivant's forces. Phaeda was liberated when Lusankya deployed hundreds of assault teams onto the planet's surface.
