The Krish were a sentient species. While searching for information concerning Imperial attempts to sure up the Empire's relations with criminals following the Battle of Endor, the smugglers Han Solo and Chewbacca were ambushed by a trio of Krish marauder-ships in the Mid Rim. Upon engaging the three Krish vessels, the smugglers discovered that the weapons of their YT-1300 light freighter, the Millennium Falcon, had stopped working after Chewbacca had been attempting to fix an issue with the hyperdrive. This resulted in the Falcon taking some serious damage, and the smugglers were only just able to escape from the marauder-ships.
