The bombardment of Mek'tradi was a massacre carried out by the Galactic Empire's 204th Imperial Fighter Wing prior to the Battle of Endor in an attempt to draw out a rebel cell. After participating in the bombardment, Lieutenant Yrica Quell was horrified at her part in the event.
Notes and references
- Alphabet Squadron
- Alphabet Squadron establishes that Yrica Quell defected after the destruction of Nacronis, two weeks after the Battle of Endor, and that she then spent one month at Traitor's Remorse. Shortly after, Quell thinks about the bombardment of Mek'tradi nine months prior, which would place the bombardment seven and half months prior to the Battle of Endor. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Endor to 4 ABY, so the bombardment of Mek'tradi must have therefore occurred around 3 ABY.
