The title of this article is conjectural.

Although this article is based on official information from the Star Wars Legends continuity, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

This article is about a conflict of Thrawn campaign. You may be looking for the Battle of Svivren, a skirmish that took place soon after the battle of Endor.

"I mean, we're not talking Svivren here, but even Ukio should have taken them [the Galactic Empire] a little longer to overrun."
―Samuel Tomas Gillespee[src]

The Siege of Svivren took place in 9 ABY. It involved the Imperial forces sent by Grand Admiral Thrawn against the locals of the planet Svivren. The Imperials were unable to win that fight


In 9 ABY, Grand Admiral Thrawn attacked Svivren and several other worlds aligned to the New Republic. The Imperial Navy was opposed by the locals, the Svivreni species, who disliked very much the idea of being sieged.[3] This caught the Imperials flat-footed. After several failed attempts against the Svivreni resistance, the Imperial Navy retreated,[4] only to return later and try to occupy Svivren. For a long time, the Imperials were unsuccessful at fighting the local resistance,[3] and their plight was well-known enough to have reached the ears of Samuel Tomas Gillespee, by then living at Ukio.[2]

Eventually, after Thrawn's death in the Battle of Bilbringi, the Imperials retreated from Svivren. As a consequence of their fight, the Svivreni decided that their resolution was as good as a military-grade weapon, and decided to be even more determined about rejecting invaders.[3]
