Shortly before the Battle of Hoth[2] in 3 ABY,[3] a campaign occurred[5] on Culroon III. The conflict involved the Galactic Empire and the Culroonians, the inhabitants of Culroon III,[1] and occurred as a result of a revolt there.[4] The human male Maximilian Veers participated in the campaign[5] on behalf of the Empire, where he demonstrated his courage, cunning,[1] and leadership[2] and secured victory for the Empire through new tactics he had developed.[4] Veers' actions led to his eventual promotion to the rank of general in the Imperial Army,[1] and he was recognized by the Sith Lord Darth Vader, who requested Veers' assignment to his own Death Squadron.[4] The campaign was acknowledged in Veers' profile in the Galactic Explorer's Guide published by Hondo Ohnaka after the Battle of Starkiller Base[5] in 34 BBY.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

The conflict on Culroon III was given an indirect mention in canon in Adam Gidwitz's 2015 children's book So You Want to Be a Jedi?, a retelling of the[1] 1980[6] film Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.[1] It was referred to as a campaign in Star Wars: The Galactic Explorer's Guide, a 2019 reference book by Jason Fry.[5]

In the Star Wars Legends continuity, a battle involving the Empire and the native Culroon of the planet Culroon III appeared in a short story called "The Promotion of Lieutenant Veers," published in The Star Wars Sourcebook in 1987. In the story, Maximilian Veers received a promotion from lieutenant to major after securing an Imperial victory.[7]
