- "They were poor and without hope. Potential Rebel scum waiting to turn against the Empire. We were lucky to strike at them before they made a move against the colony."
During the Galactic Civil War, Sarko VI was under the control of the Galactic Empire and home to a colony. Some colonists lived in poverty and survived in ramshackle shelters and makeshift homes on the outskirts of the main settlement.
Between 0 ABY and 3 ABY, Imperial troops slaughtered the residents of a squatter camp on the outskirts of the colony. The camp was believed to have a Rebel cell, because of false information provided by an informant.
Captain Korvellen, in charge of the operation, later stated that he believed his actions were justifiable, as the squatters were impoverished and desperate, and thus potential recruits for the Rebellion.
