Although this article is based on official information from the Star Wars Legends continuity, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

"Your next task is to secure a landing zone for us at Birgis. Here's the reconnaissance data we've just received, in a format that you can use. We could simply destroy the surface from orbit, because the planet will be reshaped and reengineered to our requirements anyway, but we wish to take the inhabitants alive to work for us."
―Yuuzhan Vong executor Nom Anor tasks Boba Fett with his next mission[2]

A battle at the planet Birgis occurred one week into the Yuuzhan Vong War in 25 ABY. During the battle, the Yuuzhan Vong used the Mandalorian Protector mercenaries under Boba Fett to neutralize the spaceport on Birgis while the Yuuzhan Vong dealt with the New Republic forces. The defenses were wiped out and the Yuuzhan Vong warriors occupied the planet. During the battle, Fett was able to recruit a pilot to ferry intelligence to the nearest New Republic command, but the information carried by the pilot was not acted upon.


"As long as we work for you, you leave the Mandalore sector alone."
―Boba Fett, to Nom Anor[2]

In 25 ABY,[1] the extra-galactic Yuuzhan Vong fleet appeared in known space. At a rendezvous in the Outer Rim between Boba Fett's Mandalorian Protector mercenaries and the Yuuzhan Vong executor Nom Anor, Anor outlined his species' plans for their conquest of the galaxy. In return for the Yuuzhan Vong sparing the Mandalore sector during the invasion, the Mandalorians would serve them.[2]

On their first mission for the invaders, five days after the rendezvous, Fett and the Protectors were to create a diversion at a spaceport on Birgis, a planet the Yuuzhan Vong were planning to invade, with a view to terraforming it and taking the population as slaves. Agreeing to Anor's terms, but mindful of the threat the Yuuzhan Vong posed to his people and the rest of the galaxy, Mandalore Fett was already formulating plans to inform the New Republic of the Yuuzhan Vong's stratagems.[2]

The battle[]

"Mandos. You're fighting for those things? You filthy—"
―A New Republic pilot calls out Fett and his comrades on Birgis[2]

Fett fought with his Mandalorian Protectors during the fighting on Birgis.

A week[2] after the opening battle of the Yuuzhan Vong War at[3] the Outer Rim world[1] of Helska IV,[2] and shortly after the Yuuzhan Vong attack on the Seline system,[1] Fett's forces commenced their operation on Birgis. Cognizant of the fact that the defenders on Birgis had sent out early warning craft and detected the Yuuzhan Vong advance, Fett and the Protectors set about distracting the spaceport's anti-aircraft gun, destroying the control tower, and generally causing enough disruption to allow the Yuuzhan Vong to effect a ground assault.[2]

Fett's lieutenant, Goran Beviin, encountered a pilot inside the facility and, along with fellow Mandalorians Briika Jeban and her daughter Dinua, managed to restrain her. Fett entrusted the pilot with vital intelligence to be ferried to the nearest New Republic command, and Mandalorian Cham Detta was chosen to escort her safely off-planet; while Beviin was quietly optimistic that New Holgha, a future Yuuzhan Vong target world, would be evacuated as a result, Fett was less certain.[2]

Detta was ordered to get the pilot to an operable ship nearby. Meanwhile, the local conglomeration of New Republic fleet elements, comprised largely of starfighters and ground forces—including catering corps—from conquered worlds along the invasion corridor, prepared to mount a defense from behind a barrier of wrecked speeders and repulsortrucks with a motley variety of weapons. As the Yuuzhan Vong warriors closed in, Fett's team withdrew. However, Beviin was curious as to how the Republic defenders had fared and discovered that they had been completely slaughtered.[2] Birgis resultantly became part of the Yuuzhan Vong empire.[1]


"I'll find a better way to convince them. I'm not giving up on the barves yet…"
―Boba Fett vows to prove his worth to the New Republic on New Holgha[2]

After the conquest of Birgis, the main part of the Yuuzhan Vong fleet continued to invade worlds further along the Veragi Trade Route; the next being Bimmiel. However, some Yuuzhan Vong forces broke off to conquer Ord Janon.[1] The intelligence dispatched by Fett to the New Republic was discredited, and the world of New Holgha consequently fell to the Yuuzhan Vong with little resistance as New Republic forces had been diverted elsewhere.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

The battle on Birgis first appeared in the eBook Boba Fett: A Practical Man, released in 2006 and written by Karen Traviss.[2]
