The Battle of Hosnian, also known as Operation Swiftsure(GE) and Operation Urgent Fury(NR), was a major battle in the ongoing Second Galactic Civil War in which the Galactic Empire faced off against both the New Republic and a large number of independent forces for control of the Hosnian system. The resulting conflict would prove to be one of the largest and bloodiest battles of the civil war in recent memory, with an estimated tens of thousands of lives lost and the capture of numerous high profile individuals and several Imperial officers.
The Hosnian system was initially discovered on the 188th day of Year 19 (CGT), allegedly by Kellen Deming, though he failed to realize that the system did not yet exist on his star charts. He quickly departed, but not before his ship recorded the existence of the system and, one standard week later, it was revealed to the galaxy when his navigation computer synced with the network of a public starport. On Day 195, the existence of the untouched system was revealed when the coordinates were added to every available star chart in the galaxy, starting a race to secure land rights and colonize the new star system.
The Galactic Empire broadcast a proclamation across the galaxy on the 197th day of Year 19 (CGT), declaring the Byblos sector Imperial territory under the stewardship of Grand Moff Icarus Carinae. The Empire threatened criminal prosecution against all who attempted to stake a claim in the Hosnian system and announced the dispatch of Imperial military forces to enforce its own claim. Despite, and in some cases, directly because of the Empire's broadcast, numerous individuals and organizations set course for Hosnian in an attempt to claim their own land rights and potentially profit from selling them to any who would pay.
The New Republic broadcast a report on the 240th day of Year 19 (CGT) explaining how both Galactic Alliance and Non-Alliance forces continued to oppose the Imperial Union in the Hosnian system.. The New Republic's full-scale military operation was named 'Operation Urgent Fury'. Just one day earlier, however, the Empire had seized control of Cardota and the New Republic broadcast acknowledged that the fight was far from over. One week later, Lahasa Fy's news agency published an article on the number and status of military officers held captive.. The article was not substantiated by official reports of the parties involved.
While no official date exists for the end of the battle, the Galactic Empire internally announced victory and the scaling-down of its operations in the Hosnian system around the 269th day of Year 19 (CGT). By the time Year 20 (CGT) started, the Empire had maintained a secure hold over the system for approximately six months via the worlds of Cardota, Hosnian Prime, and Raysho, while the New Republic remained entrenched in its holdings on Hosnian, Courtsilius, and Hosnian Companion. As a result of the battle, the Faerytail Family became a permanent member of the Imperial Union due to the assistance they provided to the Galactic Empire throughout the conflict.
