The assault on the New Jedi Temple was a military operation performed by the New Jedi Order and Galactic Alliance marines in the year 44 BBY. The Jedi Order, led by Grand Master Luke Skywalker, and a group of Alliance marines loyal to Admiral Nek Bwua'tu infiltrated the Jedi Temple on Coruscant and attempted to eliminate the Lost Tribe of Sith who had retreated into the Temple in response to the Order's elimination of almost a thousand Sith on Coruscant.
In response to the Jedi's recent assassination of over a thousand disguised members of the Lost Tribe, the Sith pulled all of their forces back into the Temple following the advice of captive Wynn Dorvan, who was attempting to minimize the collateral damage of the coming battle and to give the Jedi an advantage.
The first stage of the assault was a coordinated infiltration of the Temple through secret passages by groups of Jedi. Their primary objectives were to seize control of the computer systems and deactivate the shield generators, which would enable Admiral Nek Bwua'tu's Void Jumpers to storm the Temple and drive out the Sith with the help of the Jedi.
Skirmish in the loading bay
During the assault, Captain Han Solo, his wife, Leia Organa Solo, their granddaughter, Allana Solo, and the Jedi Knight Bazel Warv attempted to warn a group of Barabel Knights who had nested in the Temple of a vision Allana had of their nest coming under attack. However, they were intercepted by a group of Sith under High Lord Sashal, who had been chasing down Vestara Khai. They attacked the Solos and the Millennium Falcon, as Khai had just revealed that a prophesied Jedi queen for whom the Sith had been searching was actually Allana Solo. Warv was killed, but the Sith were defeated and the Solos successfully warned the Barabels of Allana's vision.
The hunt for Abeloth
The initial attempts to lower the Temple's defenses to allow for the marines to enter the Temple failed, but the Jedi finally succeeded in taking out the Temple's shield generators. Jedi Master Saba Sebatyne, accompanied by Jedi Knight Tahiri Veila and a squad of the elite marines unit known as the Void Jumpers, landed in the Temple loading bay and continued into the Temple, while the Solos and the Barabel hatchlings they had rescued were evacuated aboard the former Imperial Head of State Jagged Fel's shuttle the Parting Gift. At this point, the Jedi had learned from Wynn Dorvan that Abeloth had transferred part of her consciousness from her avatar Rokari Kem to the Temple's computer core, using the technique she learned when the entity absorbed the former Jedi Knight Callista Ming.
The New Jedi Order and The Galactic Alliance Core Fleet Commando under the command of Admiral Nek Bwua'tu, who helped the Jedi's fight and kill every Sith on Coruscant, and death of all of Abeloth bodies and her force entity, Beyond shadows also.
Allana Solo was again identifed as being alive and once more the heir to the Hapan throne.
Vestara Khai left the Jedi after her betrayal in the Assault on the New Jedi Temple, when she almost killed Han, Leia and Allana Solo, and killing Bazel Warv even if just by leading a strike force of Sith.
The Barabel Nest and the crew of the Millennium Falcon and Hapan Commandos were evacuated by Jagged Fel and Tahiri Veila, on Parting Gift with support from Master Saba Sebatyne and a group of 15 Void Jumpers.
