The title of this article is conjectural.

Although this article is based on official information from the Star Wars Legends continuity, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

"Of course, the Empire found out about the operation when one of my own men turned out to be a traitor. If not for the efforts of a daring Rebel strike team, we might not have escaped Roche system with the starfighters, let alone our lives and the lives of the Verpine."
Gial Ackbar[src]

The Battle of Roche took place during the Galactic Civil War. In the months following the Battle of Yavin, Rebel Alliance Commander Ackbar and Verpine engineers worked in the Roche asteroid field in order to develop the new B-wing starfighter. However, after learning that the project was nearing completion, Imperial District Commander Bane Nothos instituted a blockade of the Roche system and attacked the Research Station Shantipole to recover the prototypes.[1]
