The Trellen Conflict refers to the New Republic's Operation Heartbreak and the Imperial counterpart Operation Romance. A joint operation between the New Republic and Holowan sought to wrest control of the planet Trellen III from the Galactic Empire. Although the preparations took several months, the actual conflict was limited to a single day in Year 16. An Imperial undercover agent sabotaged the operation, resulting in the loss of several officers for the New Republic.
Holowan consisted of several former Imperial officers, its two leaders Crueya Vandron and Gabriel Kaine in particular. The organisation had been at odds with the Empire before due to allegations of Vandron stealing Imperial property during his tenure in the Imperial Ministry of Industry. Although this led to several diplomatic incidents between the two, relations remained largely neutral, even though Holowan retained control over several holdings on Imperial planets. Looking to profit from these assets and seeking rapprochement with the Galactic Alliance, Holowan requested military and strategic aid from the New Republic.
The New Republic's military high command in unison with Holowan leadership began planning an invasion of Trellen III and use the attack as a distraction to target two other Imperial planets, Soronia and Lafra. High Marshal Wedge Achilles took charge of the preparations and although the plans were already close to completion, the operation dubbed Heartbreak was delayed several times to enable more troops to be deployed for the attack or due to other circumstances. Most of the New Republic's military prepared ships and materials and was asked to stand by, unaware of what they would be participating in.
The magnitude of the operation and the length of the planning phase allowed the Galactic Empire to place several undercover agents in strategic positions. Key amongst these infiltrators was General Jaqen Taral of the New Republic Army and Special Forces. Using the Deep Space coordinates provided to different groups of the invasion force, the most likely target was determined to be the Trellen system and Imperial forces were quietly moved into position to respond to an attack. As one of the highest-ranking officers in the New Republic military, Taral was eventually granted access to the entire battle plan and coordinated an Imperial response with the leadership of Imperial Intelligence, Director Marshall Ridgeway and Bureau Chief Elvira Falston.
