"If I remember my military history, wasn't he vaporized at the Battle of Malastare Narrows?"
―Anakin Skywalker, on Trench — (audio) Listen (file info)[1]

The Battle of Malastare Narrows was a battle[1] that took place prior to the outbreak of the Clone Wars.[2] A corporate fleet, led by the Harch Admiral Trench, had formed a blockade around the planet Malastare. As a result, a Galactic Republic fleet of starships, with which the human Wullf Yularen served as an officer, attacked Trench's fleet at Malastare Narrows, but lost most of its strength as it was defeated.[1] The victory made Trench a famous naval officer.[4]

Eventually, the matter was resolved when a task force[1] led by Jedi Master Kep-She[3] arrived and moved in on the corporate fleet. With the arrival of the Jedi-led task force, Trench's flagship was destroyed, which led to the Harch's presumed death in the battle. However, Trench was discovered to have survived the battle as he led a Separatist blockade at the Battle of Christophsis during the Clone Wars[1] in 22 BBY.[5]
