The Second Battle of Zonama Sekot was a battle in 29 BBY which took place at Zonama Sekot.

BackgroundEdit

Prior to the battle, Zonama Sekot had produced strange organic ships which could travel faster than most other starships. The Jedi Order was determined to investigate the origins of these vessels and were also seeking the whereabouts of the Jedi Knight Vergere. Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan Anakin Skywalker were dispatched to investigate.

At the same time, a task force led by Raith Sienar and Blood Carver Ke Daiv were also dispatched to the planet at the advice of Wilhuff Tarkin, then Commander of the Republic Outland Regions Security Force.

When Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan arrived at the planet, they succeeded in getting a Seedship called Jabitha crafted. However, they discovered that Vergere had been taken by a mysterious alien species from the Unknown Regions known as the Far Outsiders—actually the extragalactic Yuuzhan Vong.

Meanwhile, Raith Sienar's squadron arrived and dispatched Ke Daiv to get a Seedship. Unfortunately, he was rejected by the seed partners. With this, Raith Sienar unleashed his forces on the living world.

The battleEdit

Sienar would be joined by Tarkin's fleet which included 2 Trade Federation cargo haulers and 10 light cruisers which served as escorts for the Galactic Republic's Dreadnaught-class heavy cruisers. Swarms of Vulture droids and sky-mines were unleashed on the peaceful world and its settlers.

In response, the living world unleashed Zonama Sekotan fighters, though they were outnumbered. During the battle, Anakin and Jabitha Hal—the Magister's daughter—were captured by Tarkin's forces which intercepted the Jabitha.

However, Obi-Wan and Anakin managed to escape onboard their seedship, though it was wounded by enemy fire. In the end, Zonama Sekot left the battlefield and using its massive hyperdrive system, escaped into the Unknown Regions. In the process, the attack force was severely crippled.

AftermathEdit

Obi-Wan and Anakin flew the Jabitha to the planet Seline, where it died from its wounds. As a result of losing contact with Zonama Sekot, all Sekotan ships throughout the galaxy died.
