The Cassander sector was a sector located in the galaxy's Trans-Hydian Borderlands that contained the Kalki Nebula and the worlds of Mamkoda, Caraxl and Sheh Soahi. By 34 ABY, during the cold war between the Resistance and the First Order, pirates backed by the First Order tried to take control of the sector. As an answer to the threat of losing it, the Resistance sent an attack group to repel the pirates. After a series of battles the Resistance defeated the pirates and gathered information about the First Order.

DescriptionEdit

The Cassander sector was located in the Trans-Hydian Borderlands region. The sector contained the Kalki Nebula and the worlds of Mamkoda, Caraxl,[1] and Sheh Soahi.[2]

HistoryEdit

"When the First Order tried to take over the Cassander sector, in the Borderlands between the New Republic and First Order Space, Rose and I had our first mission."
―An excerpt from Paige Tico's journal[src]

For centuries, the sector had been known for its pirates that organized hit-and-run attacks to nearby star systems using hidden bases inside the Kalki Nebula.[1]

First Order

The First Order wanted to take control of the sector with the help of pirates.

Around 34 ABY,[3] during the cold war[1] between the First Order, the successor of the Galactic Empire, and the Resistance, a small paramilitary force created by New Republic senator Leia Organa,[4] the sector was located between New Republic and First Order space. The First Order wanting to take over the sector enlisted a group of pirates to take control of it. With the support of the First Order, the pirates took control of a local spaceport on the world of Mamkoda and turned it into a base of operations.[1]

After the Resistance learned about the threat of the First Order in the Cassander sector, they sent a group of RZ-2 A-wing interceptors and MG-100 Starfortress bombers to repel the pirates. The Resistance's first target in the sector was to destroy the local pirate base on Mamkoda. During the battle, A-wings led by Resistance pilot Tallissan Lintra and bombers from Crimson and Cobalt Squadron, destroyed the spaceport turned base, without taking losses. Three days after the battle on Mamkoda, a group of Resistance bombers were dispatched to Caraxl in a relief mission to deliver supplies. During their attempt to deliver the supplies, Lintra reported that First Order TIE fighters approached their position. As they had orders to avoid any confrontation with the First Order that could cause problems in the New Republic Senate, the Resistance aborted the mission and returned to the Free Virgillia-class Bunkerbuster Ninka.[1]

Ninka DB

The Resistance forces were stationed on the Ninka during their campaign on the Cassander sector.

The Resistance group traveled to Sheh Soahi after they got information from droid spies who located the pirate main base there. Once on Sheh Soahi the Resistance launched an assault on the pirate base. During the battle, pirates destroyed two Resistance A-wing fighters and damaged the Cobalt Scarab, but after a tough fight the Resistance accomplished their objectives by destroying their base and defeating the pirate forces. During the battle the Resistance intercepted a transmission, where the pirates demanded help from the First Order, which they planned to present to the New Republic Senate. Some time after after the missions, Resistance gunner Paige Tico wrote about them in her journal, which would end up in possession of her sister Rose Tico after her death during the Battle of D'Qar.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Cassander sector was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in the 2017 replica journal book The Last Jedi: Bomber Command, written by Jason Fry.[1] The sector was originally introduced in the Star Wars Legends continuity in the 2004 Wizards of the Coast sourcebook Geonosis and the Outer Rim Worlds. In the Legends continuity, the sector was located in Outer Rim Territories and was divided into three subsectors named the Cassandran Worlds,[5] with grid coordinates of K-5 and L-5.[6]
