A'baht, Etahn (1)
Basic info
First appearance: Black Fleet Crisis 1 : Before the Storm
Species/Type: Dornean
Etahn A'baht was a pragmatic career naval officer, devoted to military service. A male Dornean, he served in the Dornean Navy with distinction, rising to command the entire eighty-ship force and using it to keep the Galactic Empire from conquering Dornea. He fought with the Alliance to Restore the Republic at the Battle of Endor, but Dornea declined to join that body or the New Republic until after A'baht had driven the Empire from Dornean space entirely. When Dornea joined the New Republic, A'baht was recruited into the New Republic Defense Fleet. He defeated Imperial Admiral Gilad Pellaeon's forces at the Battle of Celanon in 13 ABY and, in 16 ABY, he became the inaugural commander of the New Republic Fifth Battle Group, which was quickly put to the test in the Black Fleet Crisis. Despite causing President Leia Organa Solo to doubt his judgment when he became irritated with her reluctance to consider the Yevetha a threat, A'baht was fully backed by Supreme Commander Gial Ackbar and regained Organa Solo's confidence. He led the Fifth Fleet, and later a double-sized combined force, against Viceroy Nil Spaar of the Duskhan League, defeating the Yevetha in the Battle of N'zoth. A'baht later left command of the Fifth and accepted a demotion to brigadier general. He remained an important officer in the fleet, and served as one of the top strategic advisors to Supreme Commander Sien Sovv during the early Yuuzhan Vong War, urging Sovv to abandon his strategy of defending only strategically vital worlds and leaving the rest to fend for themselves. When his superiors failed to listen, A'baht resigned his commission and returned home to defend Dornea.
