The Stenax Massacres was a conflict that took place in 5 ABY, during the Galactic Civil War.

Contents

Background

While Stenos spent years under Imperial occupation, the violent Stenax people evaluated the Imperial forces in secret, attempting to assess their strength in preparation for a massive counter-offensive.

When the conflict finally began, approximately ten months after the Battle of Endor, it was so bloody, historians rightfully termed it the Stenax Massacres and compared it to the later Yevethan revolt during the Black Fleet crisis.

The conflict

Many planets in the Gordian Reach and beyond had significant Stenax populations, and these were instrumental in the surprise attacks, receiving the call to fight from Stenos. Having little information on the on-going Galactic Civil War, the Stenax made many wrongful assumptions, letting their attacks on Imperial military outposts and installations extend to civilian areas.

The Stenaxes wiped out all Imperials and non-Stenaxes on Stenos and their other worlds. They then seized Imperial military technology and used it to invade other worlds in the Gordian Reach, including Kadril, Arda-2, Sooma, Alzar, Tandankin, and Tharkos.

Aftermath

Finally able to put an end to the massacres, the New Republic assessed the situation. With millions of lives lost, monitoring posts were placed in orbit around Stenos to prevent any future campaigns by the Stenax.
