- "We need this mission. You're going to have to figure out a way, Finn. Leia's counting on you. We're all counting on you."
- ―Poe Dameron, to Finn
The Battle for Horizon Base took place during the war between the First Order and the Resistance. It saw the operatives Poe Dameron, Finn, and Gannis Ducain undertake a journey to the outpost of Horizon Base in order to recruit the Oruan resistance group who had fled there after the First Order took their homeworld, Oru. Mezlo, the leader of the Oruans, was hesitant to join the Resistance, but eventually promised to provide assistance should they ever ask. After a few brief encounters with First Order stormtroopers on the station, the Resistance crew escaped in the Millennium Falcon.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- "The Battle for Horizon Base is set between the events of Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi and Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker, the former of which leads directly into the novel Resistance Reborn. As such, the events of the comic must take place between the final event of Resistance Reborn, the battle of Ryloth, and the Mission to Sinta Glacier Colony, the first event of The Rise of Skywalker.
