"You'll never be able to dock with our ship in the middle of this battle!"
"We have no choice, Admiral. General Skywalker's condition may be critical. We must get him on board the Resolute."
"Are all Jedi so reckless?"
"Just the good ones."
―Wullf Yularen and Aayla Secura[src]

The Battle of Quell took place during the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems in the upper atmosphere of the planet Quell. Jedi General Aayla Secura, whose forces were being pummeled, requested aid from General Anakin Skywalker, who arrived in his flagship Resolute with his Padawan Ahsoka Tano. Skywalker, Tano, Clone Captain Rex and their forces boarded Secura's flagship to rescue her, with Skywalker arranging for a frigate to dock in the lower hangar for everyone to escape on. However, Skywalker was severely injured holding back an explosion as Secura, Tano, Rex and Clone Commander Bly boarded, so Secura and Tano dragged the Jedi Knight onboard. As the frigate headed back to the Resolute, Separatist fire damaged it and caused its hyperdrive to activate, sending the ship hurtling into hyperspace on a random trajectory. Admiral Wullf Yularen ordered the ship's trajectory be calculated so it could be located after the battle was finished.

The battleEdit

Three Venator-class Star Destroyers under the command of Jedi General Aayla Secura engaged with several Munificent-class star frigates, lead by T-series tactical droid TF-1726, at Quell. After some time of fighting, Secura's forces were taking heavy casualties, and thus requested assistance from Jedi General Anakin Skywalker in a nearby system. As Skywalker was racing to the aid of Secura, two of her Venator-class Star Destroyers were destroyed, and the Separatist commander deployed B2-RP battle droids to Secura's remaining ship to speed up its destruction.[4]

Aayla Secura SWZ Jake Murray

Aayla Secura was in command of the Republic Forces at Quell.

Around that time, Skywalker emerged from hyperspace with the Resolute, and arrived at the battle, quickly deploying several LAAT/i gunships to board Secura's ship, with one gunship carrying Skywalker and his Jedi Padawan, Jedi Commander Ahsoka Tano, as well as Clone Captain CT-7567, and several other clone troopers, before their gunship was damaged, and crashed into a breach in the hull of Secura's ship. As Skywalker and his forces pushed forward to join with Secura and Clone Commander Bly, a Republic frigate was docking in the lower hangar bay to evacuate the survivors. Separatist warships continued to fire on Secura's ship, which ignited a large internal explosion as the survivors were evacuating onto the cruiser.[4]

In order to save his comrades, Skywalker Force pushed them into the cruiser, and held back the explosion as much as he could before eventually being wounded. Skywalker was rescued, and the cruiser departed the doomed Republic vessel just as it was being destroyed. Due to Skywalker's wounded condition, Secura sought to dock with the Resolute, which was engaging Separatist forces. Admiral Wullf Yularen warned about docking in the middle of the battle, but reluctantly allowed Secura and the cruiser to dock. However, during the docking procedure, the cruiser was attacked by vulture droids, which accidentally activated the ship's hyperdrive, forcing the cruiser into evasive action to avoid a catastrophic collision with the Resolute as it jumped into hyperspace.[4]

AftermathEdit

Yularen ordered the last known trajectory of the cruiser to be plotted so the missing ship could be located after the battle had been finished. The out-of-control ship nearly collided with a star in hyperspace, but after it was forced out, the ship crashed on the planet Maridun.[4] Ultimately, the battle was a Separatist victory.[6]
