"Someone must have told them about my little maneuver at the Battle of Taanab."
―Lando Calrissian[src]

The Battle of Taanab was a famous battle[3] that took place in 4 ABY,[2] between Lando Calrissian and a pirate fleet in orbit of the planet Taanab. It was won by a daring and successful maneuver pulled by Calrissian. Shortly before the Battle of Endor, Calrissian mentioned the battle to fellow smuggler Han Solo, and decided his promotion to general in the Alliance Fleet had been due to his successes at the battle.[4]
