Nearly twenty years later, Vader had not forgotten about Morne and in a mission to ascertain whether or not she still lived, he sent a [[Company/Legends|company]] of heavily armed stormtroopers back to the deserted moon. Still very much alive, Morne [[Telekinesis/Legends|used the Force]] to violently crash the Imperial shuttles on the moon's surface, and subsequently transformed their stormtrooper crew into rakghouls. With this knowledge, Vader turned to his [[Spy/Legends|spy]], [[Wyl Tarson]], with instructions to leak word of a secret Imperial weapon located on the moon, and ensure that it was noticed by members of the [[Alliance to Restore the Republic/Legends|Alliance to Restore the Republic]], a group of rebels that had been [[Declaration of Rebellion/Legends|formed]] in the years since Vader had first confronted Morne as a force to oppose the oppressive Empire and restore the Republic that it had once been. Unable to resist an attempt to claim the Empire's weapon for themselves, several members of the "Rebel Alliance"&mdash;among them the likes of [[Prince/Legends|Princess]] [[Leia Organa Solo|Leia Organa]], [[Luke Skywalker/Legends|Luke Skywalker]], [[Han Solo/Legends|Han Solo]] and his [[Wookiee/Legends|Wookiee]] companion [[Chewbacca/Legends|Chewbacca]], and the former [[Clone trooper/Legends|clone trooper]] [[BL-1707|Able]]&mdash;undertook a mission of their own to the barren moon. Almost immediately upon touching down, the rebels were beset by the rakghoul horde, and several members were bitten and transformed into rakghouls themselves. A small number of the rebels escaped onto Han Solo's [[Starship/Legends|ship]], the [[Millennium Falcon/Legends|''Millennium Falcon'']], while Skywalker was captured and taken to the cave where Morne had been living.<ref name="RebellionVector">''[[Star Wars: Rebellion: Vector]]''</ref>

Convinced by the spirit of Karness Muur that the Jedi had abandoned her, Morne [[Second duel on unidentified desert moon|attacked]] Skywalker while Organa rushed to his aid. When Morne turned her lightsaber on Organa, the recently arrived Able opened fire in her defense, only to be turned into a rakghoul for his heroic efforts. [[Force sense|Sensing]] the Force within both Skywalker and Organa, Muur dislodged his talisman from Morne and attempted to take a new, more maleable host. But Morne, coming to her senses, batted the talisman away from the two rebels and took the burden of the talisman back upon herself. As Morne turned her back on the two, Skywalker and Organa became the focus of Morne's [[Legion/Legends|legion]] of rakghouls, though the timely arrival of Solo and the ''Millennium Falcon'' allowed them to escape without injury. The rebels left behind the main [[Shuttle/Legends|shuttle]] they had used to reach the planet, and Morne decided to take it for herself; her numerous rakghouls followed her aboard and took their place as the new crew, lifting off and heading for [[Orbit/Legends|orbit]] where an [[Imperial-class Star Destroyer/Legends|''Imperial''-class]] [[Star Destroyer/Legends|Star Destroyer]] awaited. Before the Imperial crew could attack the shuttle, Morne again tapped the powers of the Muur Talisman to transform those aboard into rakghouls and as she flew away into [[Realspace/Legends|space]], the Star [[Destroyer/Legends|Destroyer]] plummeted into the moon and exploded.<ref name="RebellionVector" />
