- "One of the stranger tales of the Rebellion has to do with an encounter on Krant. Princess Leia traveled there to meet a Bothan spy when she was shot down by the Imperials."
- ―Wedge Antilles
Early in the Galactic Civil War, Krant became a major rendezvous point for Bothan spies and Rebels. In 1 BBY, Bothan spy Utric Sandov arranged a meeting with Princess Leia to discuss information that could be vital to the Rebel Alliance.
While Leia Organa was moving to Krant, her ship, the Cretacian, came in contact with and fought TIE/LN starfighters. One of the starfighters damaged the Cretacian and caused it to crash on the planet. Only Organa, the protocol droid C-3PO, and some Rebel troopers survived the crash.
