An Imperial fleet suddenly and brutally attacked the shipyards. The attack inflicted heavy casualties, putting out of commission over twenty corvettes, five Nebulon-Bs, seven MC80 Star Cruisers, and thousands of personnel.
The battle alone was responsible for pushing back New Republic military plans several years. The captured Star Destroyers Emancipator and Liberator were at the shipyards at the time awaiting refurbishment. Although they were not damaged in the battle, the shift of priorities put back their work for several years.
