The Battle of Ord Cantrell was a conflict between ex-Imperial Baron Ragez D'Asta and self-proclaimed Galactic Emperor Xandel Carivus, precipitated when Carivus ordered the arrest of D'Asta's daughter Feena for treason.

The battle

A temporary ceasefire.

With much of the Imperial Starfleet dispatched across the galaxy in the hunt for Kir Kanos, Ord Cantrell was left poorly defended and vulnerable to Baron D'Asta's large private fleet.

The Imperial forces were soundly defeated in space, losing at least one Imperial-class Star Destroyer, and D'Asta's fighters began strafing Carivus's estate.

Seeing that defeat was imminent, Carivus offered to release Feena D'Asta. The Baron was loath to call off the attack when victory was in sight, but he valued his daughter's life over his own pride and agreed to the ceasefire.

Death of the Emperor

Emperor Carivus is slain.

Aboard his Marauder-class corvette, D'Asta then learned from Kir Kanos of Carivus's role in the death of Palpatine. The two men went to the would-be Emperor's estate to extract their revenge, accompanied by New Republic agents Mirith Sinn and Tav Kennede.

Carivus's Red Guards wounded Kennede, but were unable to stop Kanos from executing the traitorous "Emperor". After the battle, Sinn was unable to convince D'Asta to join the New Republic, and he decided that his sector would be independent for the time being.
