- "The Republic dispatched what forces could be spared, but the Separatists had a good lead on us, and now we're getting our heads handed to us."
- ―Lieutenant Commander Orson Krennic
During the Clone Wars, the planet Grange was besieged by the Confederacy of Independent Systems for a period of over two standard months. Although the Republic Navy fought to keep the planet, the Separatists had the upper hand; for this reason, Orson Krennic predicted that the Republic would withdraw to prevent further losses, and that Grange would fall to the Separatists.
Notes and references
- Star Wars: Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide states that the Onderonian Civil War began 22 years before the Rogue One mission. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Rogue One mission to 0 BBY. Therefore, the Onderonian Civil War began in 22 BBY, while its end, depicted in "Tipping Points," must occur in 20 BBY; Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of "Water War" to 20 BBY, while Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Character Encyclopedia - Join the Battle! dates the events of "The Gathering" to be 20 years before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which corresponds to 20 BBY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. As establishes that the events of "Tipping Points," and therefore the end of the Onderonian Civil War, occurred between the events of "Water War" and "The Gathering," the war must have ended in 20 BBY.
- Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel
- Star Wars: Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide dates the wedding of Lyra and Galen Erso to be twenty five years before the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which occurs in 0 BBY occurring to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. Therefore, the wedding must occur in 25 BBY, and Star Wars: Geektionary: The Galaxy from A - Z establishes that the Ersos moved to Vallt three years later, placing that event to 22 BBY. Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel establishes that their rescue occurred after they spent one year on Vallt, placing the rescue of the Erso family in 21 BBY. As the siege of Grange is concurrent to their rescue according to Catalyst, then it must have started by 21 BBY.
