Battle of Bakura, The
prior to the Battle of Endor, the Emperor Palpatine made a deal with an alien race known as the Ssi-ruuk. In exchange for enteched battle droids for the Imperial fleet, the Emperor would give the aliens the human subjects they needed to entech. He provided the location of the planet Bakura, which the Ssi-ruuk attacked just prior to the Battle of Endor. The Alliance, fresh from the defeat of the Emperor, recovered an Imperial distress signal, and went to Bakura in an effort to help the now-displaced Imperials. An uneasy truce developed between the Alliance's team and the Imperials, which was almost undone by internal treachery. The combined forces overcame this, however, and were able to soundly defeat the Ssi-ruuk and drive them back to their part of the universe. Many of the Imperials renounced their commissions to join the new-formed Republic.
