I can't remember enough of the details to add it to the article, but didn't Karrde's smuggling fleet make an appearance in this battle, with Mara Jade getting hit by an ion cannon? 71.236.33.191 03:22, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

ImageEdit

Image for this battle is wrong - it depicts rebel "cluster trap" in action, not a scene from the Katana Fleet encounter. NLoriel 10:08, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

OutcomeEdit

Tactical New Republic victory? I mean, ok the Republic won the battle mentioned in the book. But the Empire succeded in getting away with around 170 to 180 Dreadnought Cruisers... Even with the loss of the Star Destroyer Peremptory an nearly all Ties from Judicator, the Empire was fully succesful with the goal of this battle, getting the Katana Fleet to around 90%. If this is not an imperial victory I don't know... Perhaps you could say that the New Republic has won the skirmish for the Dreadnought Katana, but the Battle for the Katana Fleet was not a "Tactical New Republic Victory" but an overwhelming imperial success...Unsigned comment by 134.155.99.41 (talk • contribs). Actually retreating from a battlefield does not automatically mean loosing a battle.Unsigned comment by 134.155.99.41 (talk • contribs).

  • That's why it's a "tactical" victory rather than a straight victory. The Empire overall gained more than the New Republic, but the battle itself went to the NR. The Empire's recovery of 175 Dreadnaughts occurred BEFORE the battle itself, so it doesn't really play into the outcome of the battle. 72.179.42.79 22:06, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

TIEsEdit

Why were there only 60 Imperial TIEs involved in the battle? I don't have the book available, so I can't check the numbers. There SHOULD have been roughly 144 TIEs available to the Imperials, barring any prior casualties, but surely there's an explanation for why there were so many less than 144 involved. Did the Peremptory never get the chance to deploy or something? 72.179.42.79 22:08, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

PlaceEdit

According to the Thrawn campaign map, can we indicate that the battle took place either in the Halm or the Tashtor sector?--DKS MaXoO (talk) 14:37, January 30, 2014 (UTC)
