Battle of Kattada (3)
Basic info

First appearance: Star Wars Empire 5 : Princess… Warrior, part 1
Relations: Kattada


The Battle of Kattada took place in 1 BBY, during the time of the Galactic Civil War, and was fought between the Galactic Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic in the planet Kattada's main spaceport of Haleoda. Shortly after arriving on Kattada, Rebel-allied crew members of the CR90 corvette Tantive IV were confronted by an Imperial force under Commander Karg and Lieutenant Spilik. The Imperials had been given orders to arrest the crew of the Tantive IV, among them Princess Leia Organa, if the corvette landed on any other planet than Organa's homeworld of Alderaan. After an Imperial attempt to arrest Organa, and the Kattadan leader Mia Ikova because she aided Organa, left Ikova wounded, Rebel Captain Raymus Antilles had the turrets of the Tantive IV fire upon the Imperials. This crippled the Imperial's Sentinel-class landing craft, and destroyed the shuttle's communications. Forced to confront the stranded Imperials, the crew members and Kattada's troopers attacked after a short reprive in the fighting. The Rebels triumphed after they managed to breach the defenses that the Imperials had created around the shuttle. The fighting was costly for both sides, with Ikova succumbing to her wounds and both Imperial officers dying. In the end, Organa's true colors were not revealed to the Empire.
Note: In Imperial Assault game the mission which use the picture of this battle describes completely different circumstances. Leia and a squad of the operatives tasked to restore the communication beacon on one of the outer rim planets which supports Rebellion. They successfully did it, fighing against stormtroopers, snowtroopers and even wampa. Until it contradicts with anything, it can be assumed that Tantive IV made a detour to another planet while traveling between Ralltiir and Kattada.
