Repel All Boarders! is a short comic story published in Star Wars: The Clone Wars Comic UK 6.18. It follows the events of a battle between Ahsoka Tano, Obi-Wan Kenobi and the 38th Armored Division versus their Separatist pursuers after a battle lost by the Republic Navy. It was later published in Star Wars: The Clone Wars Magazine 5 as well.
Plot summary[edit | edit source]
During the Clone Wars, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano, fighting alongside the 38th Armored Division of clone engineers, are defeated by Separatist forces during a space battle due to a pincer formation used to destroy much of the Republic fleet. Following the battle, the Jedi and several clones are forced to flee in the Twilight; however, a squadron of vulture droids pursue them and deal heavy damage to the Twilight, including its hyperdrive.
After damaging the ship, the Separatist forces board it using a Sheathipede-class transport shuttle. The clones are heavily wounded from the previous battle and are in no shape to fight, and the A5-RX battle tank they saved is also too damaged to operate. The two Jedi desperately begin to fend off the B1 battle droids emerging from the boarding shuttle; as they do, however, clone sergeant Gaffa leads the clone engineers in dismantling parts of their battle tank. Using their F-187 fusioncutters, they build a A5-RX spread-missile battle platform from its weapon system which they then use to destroy the Separatist shuttle as B2 super battle droids and droidekas begin to emerge. The clones then use the battle platform to destroy the remaining vulture droids and escape.

- This story is set around the time of "Heroes on Both Sides" (21 BBY), which marks the debut of revamped appearances for several main characters. Considering that the comics featured in Star Wars Comic UK are published in chronological order, and that "Burn the Behemoth!" is the first comic in the series to feature the new character models, it can be concluded that "Repel All Boarders!" takes place in 21 BBY.
