The Battle of Mandalore took place during the final days of the Second Galactic Civil War. During the battle, Galactic Alliance Admiral Atoko released a nanovirus onto the planet, targeting the Fett genome.
Prelude[edit | edit source]
During the Second Galactic Civil War, the Mandalorians sided with the Jedi Coalition that opposed the Galactic Alliance government. In 41 ABY, the Mandalorians defended the planet Roche during the first Galactic Alliance assault on the world, and they later took part in the attack on the Moff Council during the Second Battle of Roche. In retaliation, Galactic Alliance Admiral Atoko was tasked with neutralizing the threat that the Mandalorians posed.
The battle[edit | edit source]
With the remnants of the Galactic Alliance Fifth Fleet, Atoko led the attack on the Mandalorian homeworld of Mandalore. Atoko released into Mandalore's atmosphere a nanovirus that had been developed during the Second Battle of Roche. The nanovirus targeted the Fett genome, with the intended result that the Mandalore Boba Fett and members of his family could never again set foot on the world.
