The First Battle of Lok was a battle between the Trade Federation and the Lok Revenants following a space piracy operation. The Battle of Lok began in three stages.

The Battle

Piracy above Lok

The battle began with a piracy operation in which a Trade Federation convoy was attacked by Nym in his Havoc. One Superfreighter was disabled and four other smaller freighters were destroyed, the rest managed to escape into hyperspace. When most of the Scarab fighters were mopped up the Trade Federation had sent a Trade Federation missile frigate and two repair ships to try to reclaim the Superfreighter. However, all three ships were destroyed. The disabled freighter then released its cargo of droid starfighters all of which were destroyed. When the rest of the resistance was eliminated the freighter made a plummet for the planet Lok.

Retrieval of cargo

When the freighter made a crash landing a pirate freighter at very low altitude and escorted by pirate speeder bikes found the freighter and began unloading the cargo of the freighter. However, the Trade Federation sent a strike force consisting of multiple AATs and Scarab fighters to try and secure the downed freighter. A Recovery Freighter was spotted as well indicating a desire to recover the cargo. The freighter was destroyed. Two Trade Federation Dropships attempted to fly in at low altitude and land nearby the crash landing but were destroyed before they could land. Nym then destroyed the AATs heading for the recovery operation. The pirate freighter successfully gathered the cargo, then went along a river nearby to head for a cave to avoid pursuit. Nym, along with the speeder bikes, escorted the freighter to the cave where it would then arrive at Nym's Stronghold.

Assault at Nym's Stronghold

At nighttime a speeder bike on patrol then crashed into a military convoy belonging to the Trade Federation heading for the Lok Revenants stronghold. Nym provided cover for the bases primary option of defense, the Inferno Turret, destroying two dropships before they deployed any tanks. Ground control reported that all scouts accounted for, except Jinkins. Nym managed to provide cover for Jinkins so that he could reach the base safely and get into his Freefall. Nym was alerted to several waves of Trade Federation droid bombers that were heading for the Inferno Turret, Nym, knowing that the Inferno Turret would be their strongest defense option managed to destroy the bombers before any damage could be done. Nym also managed to destroy two more dropships before they could drop of any AMTs. Meanwhile, the base's defense perimeter was under heavy fire. Ground control, knew it would be impossible to hold them of even with the Inferno Turret so they began evacuation. Ground control launched three decoy freighters first to draw the Trade Federations attention. Nym managed to provide cover for all three of them while one of the pirate freighters took off. The other didn't due to an engine failure. Nym provided air support for the ground base defenses destroying multiple tanks. When the second freighter managed to lift of it was then attacked by bombers and fighters, and before Nym could intervene, it was destroyed. Nym then checked if the charges for the base were set, after confirmation the base was timed to self-destruct he told ground control to set the timer and leave, during which a C-9979 landing craft landed in the center of the base and was destroyed in the explosion.

Aftermath

The Lok Revenants were driven out of their home with strong losses, but they were still capable of reforming a resistance movement for at least ten years in the Karthakk system. To which, with the help of Jedi Master Adi Gallia, they would be able to retake their home in at the Second Battle of Lok.

The Trade Federation also suffered potentially heavy losses. They turned the stronghold into a droid foundry and hangar and converted the surrounding area into refueling stations. They would have control over the place for ten years before losing it to the Lok Revenants.
