- "I joined six months ago, off Phorsa Gedd."
- ―Vifra explains to Namir when she joined the Sixty-First Mobile Infantry
Phorsa Gedd was a planet in the Mid Rim region of the galaxy. During the push made by the military forces of the Alliance to Restore the Republic into the Mid Rim during the Galactic Civil War against the Galactic Empire, the Alliance's Sixty-First Mobile Infantry were deployed to Phorsa Gedd under the command of Captain Micha Evon and fought in the planet's factory-deserts. Following the fighting, the company held an open recruit in which the technician Vifra joined up. Shortly before the Battle of Hoth, Sergeant Hazram Namir, who remembered the fighting on Phorsa Gedd vividly, reminisced about the battle while stationed in Echo Base with his comrades Beak and Roja. Following the Siege of Inyusu Tor six months after the fighting on Phorsa Gedd, Carver, another member of the Sixty-First who had served on Phorsa Gedd, told stories of the battle while in a cantina in the Sullustan city of Pinyumb.
