- "They've hit the main reactor! Prepare to evacuate."
- ―Adi Gallia, to a clone naval officer aboard her crippled flagship
The battle[edit | edit source]
General Adi Gallia and her clone troopers of the 91st Mobile Reconnaissance Corps had been bound for Republic space, when they were caught off guard by Grievous and several Separatist warships. Unable to mount a significant defense in time, the Separatists were able to quickly disable the Republic Star Destroyer's main reactor.
Grievous then led a boarding party of battle droids aboard the Republic warship to capture Gallia. While nonessential personnel evacuated from her cruiser via LAAT/i gunships amidst ongoing starfighter dogfights, Gallia engaged Grievous in lightsaber combat, but she was overwhelmed and taken prisoner. Her Star Destroyer, meanwhile, fell to turbolaser fire from the enemy fleet.
Aftermath[edit | edit source]
Jedi Master Plo Koon soon after launched a rescue mission to free Gallia from custody aboard Grievous's dreadnought, which met with success despite General Grievous's escape. The rescue also R2-D2 and C-3PO reunite with Republic forces.
