"If we start tracking down every lost shipment some merchant blames on TIE attacks, we deserve to fail."
―Caern Adan[1]

The Bantha's Charge was a starship which went missing while carrying a shipment along the Rimma Trade Route during the Galactic Civil War. Merchants blamed the disappearance on TIE attacks, and[1] around 5 ABY,[2] the New Republic Intelligence marked it as a possible activity of the Galactic Empire's 204th Imperial Fighter Wing. The New Republic Intelligence agent Caern Adan and his colleague Yrica Quell reviewed the Bantha's Charge's disappearance in their search for the 204th but marked the event as unremarkable.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Bantha's Charge was mentioned in the 2020 novel Shadow Fall, written by Alexander Freed as the second volume in his Star Wars: Alphabet Squadron trilogy.[1]
