"Years ago, when the Empire became aware of Voss, the Emperor sent the military to lay siege to the planet. The visionaries thwarted what they foresaw to be a simple attempt to conquer."
Servant One[src]

The Imperial Attack on Voss was an event that occurred[4] in 3649 BBY,[2] during the Cold War between the Galactic Republic and the reconstituted Sith Empire. Upon learning that the recently-discovered planet Voss was inhabited by the Force-sensitive Voss species, who had powerful foresight abilities, the Sith Emperor ordered the Imperial Military to conquer the planet.[3] General Khypes arrived in orbit with a battlecruiser and several army divisions in order to demand a surrender, having been alerted that the Voss capital of Voss-Ka was undefended. However, Khypes' cruiser exploded before he could contact the planet, and the ship's escorts were destroyed moments later.[4] During this time, the agents of the Emperor's Hand kidnapped a Voss from the surface for the Emperor's own purposes.[3] Realizing that they had underestimated the Voss, the Empire declared that Khypes had gone rogue, and both the Empire and the Republic began making diplomatic overtures to the Voss.[4] The Jedi Council declined to assist in the negotiations, perceiving the Mystics to be "grey Force-users", who don't believe in light and dark sides of the Force, and that they have more in common with the Sith in being rulers of their society.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Imperial Attack on Voss was first mentioned on the official site of the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, and it was given a name and further background in the game itself and The Old Republic's in-game Codex.
