The Battle of Eternity Bay was an important confrontation which took place in 2178, at the beginning of the First Galactic War.
Galactic Council forces outnumbered the rebels two to one. However, a rebel leader named Commander Nyland made the tactical decision to conceal a squadron of heavy fighters in the caves on the southern side of the bay. This took the Council forces by surprise, which was instrumental in leading to a victory for the Rebellion.
Following this victory, other settlements and star systems began to join the Rebellion and the war escalated.
