"Has the Republic forgotten? I won the Battle of Rordak by personally boarding Moff Ceptor's battle cruiser!"
―Bouris Ulgo[1]

The Battle of Rordak was a conflict fought at the Outer Rim planet Rordak during the Great Galactic War[1] of 36813653 BBY[2] between the Galactic Republic and the reconstituted Sith Empire. Sometime after 3673 BBY, a Republic force under the command of Alderaanian General Bouris Ulgo engaged a battle group led the Imperial Moff Ceptor. Ceptor and the Imperial force were defeated when Ulgo himself performed a boarding action on the Moff's battle cruiser, thereby securing victory for the Republic. Years later, during the Alderaan Civil War, General-turned-King Bouris Ulgo believed that his heroism during the Battle of Rordak exempted him from Republic scrutiny in the bloody conflict on his homeworld.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Battle of Rordak's first and only appearance in Star Wars Legends thus far was a brief mention in Star Wars: The Old Republic,[1] a LucasArts/BioWare massively multiplayer online role-playing video game released in 2011.[3] The conflict is mentioned by Ulgo during the Republic mission "Usurper" on Alderaan.[1]
