This article is about the insurrections at Belnar in canon. You may be looking for the skirmishes in Belnar space in the Star Wars Legends continuity.

"Imperial freighter, this is Governor Everi Chalis. If you do not adjust course within fifteen seconds, I will deal with you as I dealt with the crew of the Mandible during the Belnar Insurrections. That will be my gift to your superior, Commodore Krovis, before I have him tried for gross incompetence."
―Everi Chalis to the crew of an Imperial freighter — (audio) Listen (file info)[2]

The Belnar Insurrections were a series of events[2] that took place sometime by the year 3 ABY[1] at the Colonies astronomical body[3] Belnar. During the events, the Imperial governor Everi Chalis punished the crew of the starship Mandible, which had suffered an accident while carrying volatile cargo under the command of a drunken captain. Rather than admit this act of incompetence on the part of one of its officers, the Galactic Empire instead credited the punishment to Chalis as to show the consequences for the accident. Chalis later mentioned the Belnar Insurrections to the crew of an Imperial heavy freighter[2] in 3 ABY,[1] using the punishment of the Mandible's crew as a threat to make the freighter change course.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

The Belnar Insurrections were mentioned in the 2015 novel Battlefront: Twilight Company, written by Alexander Freed.[2]


Notes and references[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 The main events of Battlefront: Twilight Company are set twenty-two years after the Clone Wars, which ended in 19 BBY, according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. Those events must have therefore occurred in 3 ABY. The Belnar insurrections were mentioned during the novel's main events and so must have therefore happened by that year.
