During the Clone Wars, a saboteur from the Death Watch attacked a Republic cruiser. The attack brought the Death Watch to the Republic's attention, leading the Jedi Council to dispatch Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi to investigate the saboteur's possible ties to the planet Mandalore.
Notes and references
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars – "The Deserter"
- Star Wars: Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide states that the Onderonian Civil War began 22 years before the Rogue One mission, and that it ended 19 years before the mission. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Rogue One mission to 0 BBY. Therefore, the Onderonian Civil War began in 22 BBY and ended in 19 BBY.
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars – "The Mandalore Plot"
- Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode "Landing at Point Rain" to 21 BBY, and Star Wars Helmet Collection 76 (Highlights of the Saga: The End of Endurance) dates the death of CT-411 "Ponds", as seen in the episode "Lethal Trackdown", to the same year. Since places "The Mandalore Plot" between "Landing at Point Rain" and "Lethal Trackdown," its events must take place in the same year.
