Battle of Tingel Deepspace Besh by wraithdt Battle of Tingel Deepspace Besh by wraithdt
This is one of ten pieces I did for the new Star Wars Essential Guide to Warfare. I had a blast working on it and I'm excited that I am able to contribute to the Star Wars universe.

I will be posting them in the order of sequence as it appears in the book. Hope you guys enjoy them!

This is one of my favorite pieces from the Galactic Civil War era. This battle, which took place after the destruction of the first Death Star but before the events of Empire Strikes Back, was an elaborate ambush set by Vader and the Empire to destroy the Alliance leadership along with its fleet. Under overwhelming odds the Rebels would've fled to a designated location where they would regroup, but had they done that they would have found another Imperial fleet waiting for them. The fleet instead dispersed and made random jumps to avoid being completely annihilated. The Alliance almost lost the entire fleet from this battle but enough survived to carry on the fight and eventually make a comeback at the Battle of Endor.

This battle is recounted in the Star War comic "Rebellion: My Brother, My Enemy".

In there eyes the Old Republic was better then the current Empire. Also the Empire wanted to run all Corporations there way.

They had 2 of them, 1 was destroyed in this battle, and the other was heavily damaged. The rebels got annihilated in this battle.

They didn't even know what hit them, they dropped right into the hands of 4 dozen star destroyers, as well as the Executor.

Still though, that Kamikaze Nebulon-B in the Death Star II mission.

They had one such vessel I believe, though it was a Providence-class. Retro-fitted to accommodate a more organic crew. It was destroyed at some point I think, forget when though.

oh. all this expanded universe stuff hurts my head sometimes. the games and shows, i can manage, but there's a new book or comic like every month. it's hard to keep up with those.

Might be easier to manage now that Disney has the older expanded universe as 'legends' and their own new stories as canon. I know how you feel though.
I enjoy Star Wars chronology enough to read through the expanded history and remember it, but I've never read any of the books.

yeah. Thank you, Disney, for doing the Zelda thing and splitting the timeline. hopefully they'll explain that little headache inducer with a DLC for the Old Republic MMO or that untitled Bioware game.

and Disney said that they haven't completely abandoned the EU. they'll bring in elements of the Expanded Universe, so we might see Starkiller, Kyle Katarn, Thrawn, and the Vong sometime in the future, just not as how they originally were.

the only books i read was the Thrawn Trilogy, Darksaber, and the first book of the X-Wing series.

Sounds good but the Vong may b 2 genocidal 4 Disney's taste.

:iconmonsterlord-18:
monsterlord-18 Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2015
they had Frollo in Hunchback, and he wasn't exactly child-friendly. but yeah, the Vong may be bye-bye for good. i can see why they dropped that particular part of the EU.
