It seemed the Sith were about to attack a nearby planet, so the Jedi fleet orbiting the world moved forward to Eniam to stop the attackers early. The Sith fleet soon approached Eniam, and a battle erupted. In the end, the Republic fleet still stood, and reinforcements arrived, but both sides took heavy losses.
During the battle, many small ships crashed into the planet's surface. This gave the natives an example of starship technology, and helped their own civilization advance quickly.
