First Battle of Geonosis Galactic Civil War

The First Battle of Geonosis

The First Battle of Geonosis took place in 1 BBY as part of Operation: Skyhook, when the rebels attacked the unfinished Death Star, being constructed in the orbit of Geonosis. Although the Rebels managed to delay the construction, their offensive was pushed back after the arrival of an Imperial Fleet, along with bounty hunter Boba Fett. Because of this the Empire moved the incomplete Death Star to Despayre, where it would be finished.
