HIMS Emperor Valak


The fourth and penultimate major engagement of Emperor Valak's Great Campaign. Following the successful capture of Mon Calamari, the Empire advanced to Sluis Van.

Republic defenders inflicted heavy losses on the Imperial fleet, including the destruction of the flagship Emperor Valak, but were unable to prevent the destruction of Sluis Van by the Death Star.

Sluis Van's shipyards, made all the more valuable by the destruction of those at Mon Calamari, were spared the same fate and instead put to Imperial use.
