"Talus – city of Dearic: Another capital city plagued by dirty politics and scandal, Dearic is also home to a diverse and bustling Starport. Control of this city provides a broad spectrum of intelligence that will span the entire galaxy."
Ysanne Isard, Imperial Naval Communiqué 31756[src]

The Invasion of Dearic was an invasion by the Alliance to Restore the Republic to retake the Talusian city of Dearic in the year 1 ABY, in an attempt to free the Talusian people from an Imperial presence in the region. The primary target for the Alliance was an Imperial General, who was vital to the Empire's efforts. They figured that taking him out would cripple Imperial operations in the area. The only way that such a move would be successful was to take the city by an invasion, as the Imperials possessed a sizable defense - an entire battalion of stormtroopers were stationed in the city.

Once the Alliance had the signal to attack, they attacked from various sections of the city - primarily by the starport to the west, the hotel to the east, and the theater to the south. Unfortunately for the Rebels, Imperial spies had already stolen the plans for the assault and the Imperials erected several choke points where the Rebels were significantly halted in their advance. Heavy fighting erupted outside the starport and just beyond the hotel. Many on both sides were soon seen wounded, demoralized or both. Medics rushed in to aid the wounded, and certain troopers entertained and rallied the demoralized troopers. As the Imperial lines of defenses fell, the Imperial troopers were soon forced to fall back deeper with in the city, and soon the remaining squadron of Imperial troopers retreated to the General.

The Imperials made one brilliant last stand -- they fought with all they had and kept the lines of defense together as best they could, but now they were too concentrated and cornered. While the Rebels had suffered heavy casualties, they still had an edge in numbers. The remaining Imperials were placed under a barrage of trooper and tank fire, and the defensive structures soon gave way. The Imperials eliminated many Alliance troops, but eventually the Imperial General had fallen. With the battle over, the Imperials attempted to retreat, which itself was a challenge. Many Imperials fell in the aftermath of the battle and their attempt to retreat, though a few had managed to survive the battle.

  3. According to its opening crawl, Star Wars Galaxies was set sometime after Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. The only precise time indication in the game was given by the character Ruwan Tokai, who referenced the destruction of the Death Star at the Battle of Yavin as occurring one year earlier, placing the game sometime around 1 ABY. Later, multiple elements confirmed the placement of the game storyline in 1 ABY. First, The Essential Reader's Companion established that the tie-in novel Star Wars Galaxies: The Ruins of Dantooine took place in 1 ABY. Furthermore, the game expansion Star Wars Galaxies: Rage of the Wookiees was set during the Blockade of Kashyyyk, one year after the Battle of Yavin according to The Star Wars Holiday Special. Additionally, the main scenario of The Nightsister's Revenge from the Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game was set over a year before the Battle of Hoth (3 ABY), so around 1.5 ABY. Finally, the reference book Strongholds of Resistance placed the events of Star Wars Galaxies's Chapter 9: "The Fury of Exar Kun" one year after the Battle of Yavin. Of note, Galaxies's Chapter 11: "The Battle of Echo Base" introduced the Battle of Hoth in the game. However, the developers were quite clear that this was only intended to be a completely isolated "Star Wars Moment" without any effect on continuity for the rest of the game.
