- "Bitter Pill Company was on some trash heap of a planet; lost their troop transport but got a replacement."
- ―Maximian Ajax, to Hazram Namir
Bitter Pill Company was the designation of an infantry company in the army of the Rebel Alliance that was deployed during the Mid Rim Retreat. The company was sent to a planet which its members considered to be a "trash heap" in 3 ABY as part of a final effort to distract the forces of the Galactic Empire. Bitter Pill Company lost its troop transport on the planet but was able to secure a replacement. News of the company's actions soon reached the Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry, and one of its members, Sergeant Maximian Ajax, briefly recounted the story to First Sergeant Hazram Namir.
