"This is war, Captain Brandei. Not an opportunity for personal revenge."
"I understand my duty, Admiral."
Grand Admiral Thrawn and Captain Brandei[src]

The Battle of Filve took place during Thrawn campaign and was a diversion to distract the New Republic away from the Battle at Ukio.

Prelude[edit | edit source]

Map showing Thrawn's assaults against Filve and other planets in the region during his campaign to take Ukio.

The assault on Filve was used as a feint to draw New Republic forces away from Ord Pardron, which in turn left the planet Ukio vulnerable. Grand Admiral Thrawn's forces attacked the planet but the Millennium Falcon and Rogue Squadron were present in the system. Leia Organa Solo was on a diplomatic mission to Filve in order to reassure the Filvians but the Millennium Falcon didn't manage to reach the planet.

The Battle[edit | edit source]

The Millennium Falcon and Rogue Squadron tried to flee, but Joruus C'baoth, coordinating the Battle at Ukio, sensed Leia Organa Solo's presence and sent Captain Brandei's entire fleet to capture her. The Rogues and the Falcon were eventually able to escape safely through the use of the Cracken Twist.

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

Once again, C'baoth's intervention disturbed the Grand Admiral's battle plan and left much more time for the Filvians to organize their defense, making Thrawn and Pellaeon furious against the Jedi.
