- "Attention, citizens! I am Grand Moff Nivers. This planet is now under control of the Empire! You will work for the Empire… or you will suffer!"
- ―Nigel Nivers, to the citizens of Tandankin
After the Battle of Endor, Grand Moff Nivers occupied the planet, but Tandankin was liberated by Wedge Antilles, Luke Skywalker, and Rogue Squadron. Wedge destroyed the Imperial TIE/LN starfighters before they could even launch, by shooting down a tall tower that crushed the TIE fighters.
The tower was the most cherished monument of Tandankin, and the populace was outraged, berating Wedge. Luke chastised them for their behavior, and they later apologized to Wedge and thanked him.
