"Lord Krayt, this is genocide!"
Gial Gahan to Emperor Darth Krayt

The Massacre of New Coral City occurred in 137 ABY in the aftermath of the battle between the Imperial Outer Rim Third Fleet and the Galactic Alliance Remnant. It was the first event of the Genocide of Mon Calamari.

Background

At Dac, the Empire was constructing an Advanced Star Destroyer known as the Imperious. Admiral Dru Valan used the newly constructed ship as bait to lure the Galactic Alliance Remnant, led by Gar Stazi into a trap. But the battle that followed saw the theft of the Imperious and the escape of the Alliance Remnant.

Following the Imperial defeat, Emperor Darth Krayt was furious that the Alliance had escaped with the pride of his Empire's fleet. He traveled to Dac with a number of Sith Lords. When he met with the Mon Calamari Council, he presented the recently captured Gial Gahan. He explained that he had long known the Mon Calamari had secretly supported Stazi for the last seven years, and that he had had enough.

Instead of punishing Gahan for betraying the Empire, Krayt ordered the execution of ten percent of the Mon Calamari population of Dac starting with the members of the Mon Calamari Council, and the internment of the rest in work camps.

The massacre

"Ten percent of the Mon Calamari population are to be executed. Effective immediately. We will start with the Mon Calamari at hand."
Emperor Darth Krayt

Immediately after Krayt issued his command, his Sith Lords, among them Darth Azard, as well as his Stormtroopers began to execute each Mon Calamarian present. Even though the Quarren had been placed in a position of power by the Sith Empire, those who opposed or questioned the Emperor's will were executed as well. With the massacre on its way, Emperor Krayt personally executed Gial Gahan.

Aftermath

In the aftermath of the massacre, and the beginning of Krayt's genocide, the Mon Calamari began a resistance, counting with Imperial Knight Treis Sinde among their numbers.

Behind the scenes

The order by Krayt to destroy 10% of the Mon Calamari may be a reference to the Roman Empire's practice of punishing mutiny or cowardice by decimation, which translates literally as removal of one-tenth.
