"I think I've just about had it with Bilbringi."
General Wedge Antilles

The Second Battle of Bilbringi was fought near the end of the Yuuzhan Vong War, and was one of the few battles to involve the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances and the Imperial Remnant fighting alongside each other.

The battle

The Galactic Alliance, in an effort to cut off Coruscant from the major systems in the Inner and Mid Rims, launched three major attacks within a month or so of time—one at Duro, another at Fondor, and the last at Bilbringi. The attack was orchestrated by Supreme Commander Sien Sovv and three of his other commanders: Admiral Traest Kre'fey, General Wedge Antilles and General Garm Bel Iblis.

Dubbed as Operation Trinity, the task force was divided into three groups: Alpha Fleet led by Antilles took the point, supported by Beta Fleet led by Grand Admiral Gilad Pellaeon and Gamma Fleet led by Kre'fey. The first point of the operation was for Antilles to enter the system and scout for any weakness in the enemy fleet. Then he was to send the most tactically suitable entry points to the other two fleets.

However, just before Antilles' fleet went in, the Yuuzhan Vong released their latest creation, the mabugat kan, which brought down several HoloNet relay stations. Since the entire operation depended on HoloNet transmissions to coordinate their attack, Antilles wasn't able to call in the other fleets for help. His fleet was trapped in a system full of hostiles and took heavy losses.

Many of his ships were destroyed in the battle, most notably the Interdictor Cruiser Memory of Ithor commanded by General Pash Cracken. The only bright side of the whole debacle was Wedge managed to inflict heavy casualties to the Yuuzhan Vong forces as well, destroying the Interdictors and at least three cruiser type ships.

Antilles' fleet narrowly escaped being completely obliterated by the Yuuzhan Vong. Only an ingenious maneuver by Antilles to order the reduction of Mon Mothma's shields saved the fleet. The Yuuzhan Vong retreated, thinking that the Star Destroyer's main reactor was going critical; along with the timely intervention of a cloaked Golan Defense Platform commandeered by Han Solo, it allowed Mon Mothma and the remaining vessels of Alpha Fleet to retreat to Mon Calamari.

Antilles later met up with Pellaeon's fleet in an unnamed system after the battle was over.

Many of the captured Alliance soldiers were taken by the Yuuzhan Vong to Selvaris.
