Battle of Orto Plutonia (4)
Basic info
First appearance: The Clone Wars (TV Series)
The Battle of Orto Plutonia took place on the planet Orto Plutonia in 22 BBY during the Clone Wars. Sometime during the war, the Galactic Republic built Glid Station on the planet to watch for any surprise Separatist invasions around the Pantora system. Due to the amount of military activity on the planet, Orto Plutonia's only indigenous species, the Talz, attacked the base, killing the clone troopers stationed there, and also assaulted the nearby Confederate base. High Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi and Jedi General Anakin Skywalker were dispatched to investigate the loss of contact with the base, and they subsequently discovered the Talz, whose presence on the planet had not yet been recorded. After meeting with the Talz's leader, Thi-Sen, the Jedi sought to establish a peaceful agreement between the Republic and the Talz, but Chi Cho, Chairman of the Pantoran Assembly, instead declared war on the planet's natives in an attempt to remove them from the planet.
While the two Jedi remained near Glid Station with Pantoran Senator Riyo Chuchi to speak with the Pantoran Assembly and officially resolve the conflict, Clone Captain Rex and a group of clone troopers were tasked with protecting Cho from the Talz. After the Talz ambushed Cho and the clones, Cho became injured when a Talz threw a spear at him. Despite this, Rex fled the area with the other clones, bringing the incapacitated Cho along on his BARC speeder. Thi-Sen and the Talz pursued Rex and his team and trapped the clone troopers at a dead-end cliff overlooking a canyon, but Kenobi, Skywalker, and Chuchi landed at the battle site and halted the Talz's attack. To settle the conflict between the Pantorans and the Talz, Chuchi met with Thi-Sen, establishing an agreement that allowed the Talz to live in peace on the planet.
