The Bengali Uprising was an uprising led by the planet Bengali against the Echani Command, the female council that governed a confederacy of six Echani-dominated planets known as the Six Sisters that began in the year 1154 BBY. Bengali was joined in revolt by the Thyrsians, an Echani subspecies from the planet Thyrsus, another of the Six Sisters.
Though the uprising nominally ended with the return of Bengali to the Six Sisters less than a century later, hostility between the Thyrsians and Echani Command continued until the Pact of Almera in 899 BBY recognized Thyrsian independence.
The Bengali Uprising was most well-known as being the event that introduced the use of Force pikes to galactic warfare.
Behind the scenesEdit
The uprising was first introduced in the Imperial Sourcebook as the "Begali Uprising," but later sources changed the name to the Bengali Uprising.
