Sometime between 3973 BBY and 3965 BBY, during the early years of the conflict known as the Mandalorian Wars, the Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders raided the Dernatine system, a star system in Hutt Space. The Mandalorians were victorious in the raid, and later used the system as a staging point for part of the campaign known as the Mandalorian Triumph in 3962 BBY.
Behind the scenes
The battle is only referenced once in The Essential Atlas. It was marked on the galactic map showing the battles of the Mandalorian Wars rather than described in prose.
Notes and references
- The Essential Atlas
- While the map in The Essential Atlas labels the eastern campaign as occurring in 3963 BBY, the text of both the Atlas and The Essential Guide to Warfare directly contradict this: both sources state that Mandalorians raided Hutt Space and the planets east of Centares before they actually battled the Republic in 3965 BBY. Thus, the eastern campaign must occur between 3973 BBY and 3,965 BBY.
