- "It’s not a drill, the New Republic has attacked Governor."
- ―General Khorde Tavers
The Battle of Rendili was a major battle during the Galactic Dark Age.
The New Republic had suffered at the hand of the Kicka Empire for nearly 20 years and with the election of Supreme Chancellor Tyrral Vand the New Republic proclaimed itself revived. Chancellor Vand was passionate about regaining the territories lost by the New Republic when they were all but destroyed during the Sovereign War. The New Republic ushered it's strength and struck at Rendili, one of the first and last lines of defense of the core worlds. A New Republic victory would propel them to be able to re-conquer Coruscant while a defeat would ensure Imperial dominance for another number of years.
