Operation Midnight Freedom was the codename for a battle during the Cold War between the forces of the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire, which took place over the planet of Fondor. A Republic transport had gone missing in the Fondor system. Attacked by the Empire, the survivors managed to escape in a small shuttle. An Imperial fleet was called in to destroy the shuttle in order to cover up the Empire's aggressive actions, which were in violation of the Treaty of Coruscant. Calling for aid from the Republic, the conflict was resolved when members of the Coruscant Aegis arrived, protecting the shuttle until its escape to hyperspace.
