During the Galactic Civil War, a skirmish broke out between the Galactic Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic sometime after the Battle of Yavin on the volcanic moon Ghost Moon. Task Force 99 of the Empire led by Sergeant Kreel shot down a Rebel Taylander shuttle which crashed on the moon.
The surviving Rebels set up an ambush for the Empire using snipers. Kreel then led a successful assault against the Rebels but was forced to retreat along with his squad to the sewers when faced with a tank. The Rebels followed them with the tank to the sewers where Kreel disabled the tank's weapons using his lightsaber. The tank was set to fire by the stormtroopers and the Rebels were killed except for Admiral Verette, who was captured for interrogation. The troopers tied Verette up in front of a shuttle to distract the rebels so they could reclaim the Imperial I-class Star Destroyer Harbinger.

- This event occurs between the Battle of Yavin, which takes place in 0 BBY as stated by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, and the assault on the Mako-Ta Space Docks, which Ultimate Star Wars, New Edition places one year after the Battle of Yavin, which, as already stated, takes place in 0 BBY, and therefore that assault takes place in 1 ABY. As such, this event occurs between 0 ABY and 1 ABY.
