The Battle of Gamorr was a large battle between the Separatists and the Republic. The Separatists, lead by Kaleesh cyborg Grievous, captured Gamorr and destroyed much of the Republic fleet, lead by Kel Dor Jedi Knight Vel Orset. Although the planet was captured and the Republic had heavy losses, it was eventually recaptured by the Empire.
This marked the first major defeat of Vel Orset, and Vel decided not to become too overconfident ever again. The native porcine Gamorreans also made the job difficult, because, even though the Republic was sent to protect them from the Separatist invasion, the Gamorreans still did not like the idea of any army on their planet and attacked both sides.
