A battle occurred in orbit of Lorta during the Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the reconstituted Sith Empire. Republic forces attacked the D-1Z prototype bomber on its maiden voyage but Imperial forces successfully defended the bomber.
During the Imperial Period, expansionist Lortan Fanatics eventually launched their murderous crusade, knows as the Reslian Purge. They swept across twelve star systems and destroyed everything in their path. The Galactic Empire eventually interceded in the conflict and the Lortans were finally stopped in a series of battles in which Soontir Fel participated.
