File Description

This 8 player MP or 4 player skirmish space map was created for those of you that love the Expanded Universe (EU). As you may recall, Helska IV was introduced into Star Wars literature in "Vector Prime" when it was turned into the base of operations for the Yuuzhan Vong invasion fleet. It is "the fourth planet in the Helska System. The frozen planet became the base of operations for the Praetorite Vong. Ultimately, it was destroyed by a New Republic task force sent to wipe out the Yuuzhan Vong presence there" (description found at Wikipedia.com).

Helska IV is located on the very edge of the Star Wars galaxy and I personally feel that it is an interesting and yet mysterious sounding planet. If you haven't read Vector Prime, I highly recommend that you do so that you will know what I am talking about.

In any case, I decided to make this map in tribute to the New Jedi Order (NJO) series. This map portrays a battle that takes place years before the Yuuzhan Vong invasion during the Galactic Civil War. The backstory is simply that the Black Sun Pirates have claimed the Helska system as a base of operations because of the rich mineral deposits found on the asteroids in the viscinity. It is a natural place for the pirate organization to go to since it is in a very remote section of the galaxy. Naturally, the Rebels and Empire get wind of what the pirates are doing and each of them want their hand in the wealth located in the Helska System. This map portrays the battle that inevitably takes place when all three sides meet to determine who will control Helska IV once and for all.
