"Rearguard actions across the board…Twenty-First was on Bestine."
―Maximian Ajax, to Hazram Namir — (audio) Listen (file info)[1]

The Twenty-First was a group within the Rebel Alliance during the Galactic Civil War. The group operated during the Mid Rim Retreat, and was deployed to[1] the planet[2] Bestine IV[1] in 3 ABY[3] as part of a final coordinated effort to distract the forces of the Galactic Empire, allowing the Alliance Fleet to finish withdrawing from the Mid Rim. News of the Twenty-First's actions reached the Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry and one of its sergeants, Maximian Ajax, passed the news on to First Sergeant Hazram Namir.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Twenty-First was mentioned in Alexander Freed's 2015 novel Battlefront: Twilight Company.[1]
