Great Galactic War that heavily influenced Alderaan's stance in the Senate. The Sith forces invaded Alderaan, burning cities to the ground. A small group of Republic Special Forces led by Captain Jace Malcolm ambushed Sith forces along with jedi Satele Shan, Grand Master. She had a battle with the Sith leading the forces, Darth Malgus. She was almost taken down before Captain Jace ran in with a heavy shotgun. He used a grenade to weaken him and was knocked out. Darth Malgus barely made it out. Before Jace lead the ambush, he met a group of children with Republic veteran Grimes O'donnah. These kids would later be hunted by Malgus. They were carrying a Crusader type lightsaber as a package for a jedi in a reconnaissance team on Axxila, that was left there after the battle of Axxila. Grimes would take part in a fight against a Sith Alchemist on Alderaan, later dying against a full on fight with Malgus on another planet, to hold him off as the children escape from said planet.

- "Countless star systems fell to the Empire during the Great War, yet many in the Republic believed the Core Worlds were safe from attack. That all changed when the Empire invaded Alderaan; the Sith Lord Darth Malgus led the attack, timing his invasion with a feint that drew the Republic’s fleet light years away.
Unknown to Malgus, a small contingent of Republic soldiers was stationed on Alderaan. The soldiers were outnumbered and disorganized, but among them were the members of Havoc Squad , the Republic’s most decorated military unit. Under the leadership of Captain Jace Malcom , the Havoc Squad commandos rallied the Republic troops and waged a fierce guerrilla campaign against the Empire.
The resistance fighters harried the Imperial forces constantly, delaying their advance long enough for the Republic fleet to race back and repel the invasion. In the end, Darth Malgus was defeated and the Empire was driven from Alderaan. The victory was a costly one, though; Alderaan would not soon forget the devastation."
