"The arrival of the Mon Calamari city-ships was a shocking (and perhaps, given our limited effectiveness against the occupation of Mon Cala, undeserved) boon, emphasizing the significance of winning the hearts of the galaxy's civilians above all else."
Mon Mothma, in "Short Notes on the History of the Rebel Alliance Navy"[src]

The occupation of Mon Cala was the Galactic Empire's occupation of the planet Mon Cala, which began after the invasion of Mon Cala,[1] after Mon Calamari King Lee-Char incited a war on Mon Cala.[9] During the occupation, Ardo Barodai worked as a bartender where he eavesdropped on Imperial officers and passed on intelligence to the rebellion.[10] Th occupation was thwarted when the Mon Calamari and Quarren joined together and destroyed the Imperial garrison.[1]

  2. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode "Landing at Point Rain" to 21 BBY, and Helmet Collection logo small.png Star Wars Helmet Collection 76 (Highlights of the Saga: The End of Endurance) dates the death of CT-411 "Ponds", as seen in the episode "Lethal Trackdown", to the same year. Since StarWars.com Star Wars: The Clone Wars Chronological Episode Order on StarWars.com (backup link) places "Brain Invaders" between "Landing at Point Rain" and "Lethal Trackdown," its events must take place in the same year. As the second occupation of Geonosis begins in "Brain Invaders," it must have started in 21 BBY, and Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel establishes that the Galactic Empire carried on the occupation after the end of the Clone Wars. Dawn of Rebellion specifies that the Empire continued to hold its presence on Geonosis until the sterilization of Geonosis and that, within months of the genocide, Project Stardust had been entirely relocated to Scarif. As Star Wars: Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide states that the DS-1 Death Star Mobile Battle Station was moved to that planet nine years before the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which occurred in 0 BBY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, the Death Star was moved over Scarif in 9 BBY. Based on what Dawn of Rebellion notes about how the sterilization occurred months before the project was situated over Scarif, the sterilization and Imperial withdrawal from Geonosis must have occurred around 9 BBY. Therefore, the second occupation of Geonosis lasted from 21 BBY to around 9 BBY. As Darth Vader (2017) 13 establishes that the invasion of Mon Cala, and therefore the beginning of the occupation of Mon Cala seen in Darth Vader (2017) 17, occurred one year into Imperial Era, it must be concurrent to the occupation.

  4. Ultimate Star Wars, New Edition states that the war on Mon Cala, which led to the occupation of Mon Cala, was incited a year into the Emperor's rule, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the beginning of to 19 BBY. Therefore, the occupation of Mon Cala began in 18 BBY.
