"As Governor Tarkin can attest, our navy was still chasing Separatist holdouts as late as a year ago."
Vice Admiral Rancit, five years after the Clone Wars[src]

Separatist holdouts were elements of the Confederacy of Independent Systems that had not stopped fighting either because they refused to surrender or were unaware of their defeat in the Clone Wars. These elements operated and remained active against the Galactic Empire, which replaced the Galactic Republic at the end of the war. Four years after the war, the Imperial Navy was still chasing after Separatist holdouts. Weapons and technology of the Separatists continued to be utilized after the war which were studied by the Imperial researchers.[2] Four years before the Battle of Yavin, Imperial cadets such as Zare Leonis imagined serving the Empire by fighting against the holdouts as well as pirates, and slavers, but ended up finding the reality of service as an cadet to be very different.[1]

Nearly fifty years after the Clone Wars and shortly before the conflict between the First Order and Resistance, an ion storm struck the Obrexta III, a crashed Providence-class dreadnaught that was tasked with carrying the captured clone trooper CT-6116 from the planet Coruscant to Serenno. En route, the cruiser was attacked by Republic forces and heavily damaged. Knowing that the ship was in no shape to reach Serenno, a B1 battle droid called B1-CC14 activated the emergency beacon before jumping the ship to a random point through hyperspace. The jump took it to the desert planet Ponemah, where it fell into the planet's surface and B1-CC14 lost power. The cruiser would have some of its systems repowered, including the emergency broadcast which caused a number of pirate groups to be attracted by the broadcast, believing the Obrexta III to contain the legendary lost treasure of the Count Dooku. After one group of pirates managed to get aboard the vessel who thought that Dooku's treasure was the collection of Jedi lightsaber kyber crystals that the Count had collected, which were worth a massive fortune on the black market. B1-CC14, unaware that Clone Wars were long over, briefly powered back up and activated a failsafe that would mobilize all B2 super battle droids on board to stop the intruders, thinking that they were the Republic troopers. As the pirates tried escaping, the battle droid would then deactivated again and was destroyed soon after when the Obrexta III exploded after the pirates escaped.[3]
