"Take them out! They're nothing but cadets in this academy!"
―Coret Bhan[3]

The attack on the Raithal Academy occurred shortly prior to battle of Talus during the Galactic Civil War.


"We're under attack. A Rebel strike force has landed just outside the Academy."
―An Imperial First Lieutenant[3]

With direct orders from the Emperor himself, Imperial Special Forces have established a head hunter squadron on the planet of Corellia. Their mission was to seek out and destroy a secret Rebel base on the Corellian moon of Talus. At the Imperial Academy on Raithal, a week-long briefing was being held about an upcoming operation in the Corellian system. The Alliance had launched a raid on the academy, aimed to disrupt the imperial planning.

A group led by Captain Coret Bhan performed a hit-and-run attack on the Raithal Academy. A Rebel strike force has landed just outside the Raithal Academy and - without trying to capture or destroy it - tried to disrupt Imperial planning and benefit from the propaganda reports about the Rebel attacking the most prestige Imperial Academy. When the cadets of Academy put up reasonable defense, Rebel forces fell back in good order towards their landing craft, leaving behind some explosives which they planned to use to blow the starport on their way out.

Behind the scenes[]

This battle is featured in the first scenario of Dark Side campaign from Squadrons Over Corellia, the second expansion of the Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game.

  2. According to its opening crawl, Star Wars Galaxies was set sometime after Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. The only precise time indication in the game was given by the character Ruwan Tokai, who referenced the destruction of the Death Star at the Battle of Yavin as occurring one year earlier, placing the game sometime around 1 ABY. Later, multiple elements confirmed the placement of the game storyline in 1 ABY. First, The Essential Reader's Companion established that the tie-in novel Star Wars Galaxies: The Ruins of Dantooine took place in 1 ABY. Furthermore, the game expansion Star Wars Galaxies: Rage of the Wookiees was set during the Blockade of Kashyyyk, one year after the Battle of Yavin according to The Star Wars Holiday Special. Additionally, the main scenario of The Nightsister's Revenge from the Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game was set over a year before the Battle of Hoth (3 ABY), so around 1.5 ABY. Finally, the reference book Strongholds of Resistance placed the events of Star Wars Galaxies's Chapter 9: "The Fury of Exar Kun" one year after the Battle of Yavin. Of note, Galaxies's Chapter 11: "The Battle of Echo Base" introduced the Battle of Hoth in the game. However, the developers were quite clear that this was only intended to be a completely isolated "Star Wars Moment" without any effect on continuity for the rest of the game.
