Star Wars Fanon
Rise of the Empire era

The Battle of Geonosis, was the first battle between the Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems, beginning the Clone Wars. This battle took place on Geonosis and was quite significant, fought by Republic Jedi and clone forces and a part of the Separatist droid army on Geonosis. This marked the first battle for numerous clone troopers.

After Yoda's inspection of the Republic Clone Army on Kamino, a legion of clone troopers were drafted into the Republic army, and Yoda used the clones to assist the Jedi Strike Team in rescuing Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Senator Amidala, all of whom had been taken prisoner on Geonosis by Count Dooku.

36 Acclamator I-class assault ships, carrying 190,000 clone troopers, with hundreds of infantry, armored vehicles, artillery and air support, were sent to Geonosis, to rescue the two Jedi and the senator. Before deployment, the clones that were leaving bid farewell to the Kaminoans who had trained them, as well as several of the young, adolescent Fett clones. Soon after they joined the other clones in their company.

And so, after a decade of training in solitude, hundreds of thousands of clones were deployed to Geonosis.

"Yes sir."
"You don't know how to teleport do you?"
"No sir."
"Ah, well.

—Jind Esimal and his Lieutenant.

For Jind Esimal, the battle went much worse. After hearing of the capture of Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Padmé, he immediately rushed to try to save them, an attempt which failed. He spent most of the battle on the surface of the planet, as he disliked starship combat. Initially, his platoon got off to a good start, battling through wave after wave of enemies with few injuries, but soon his soldiers grew weary and became surrounded, and decided to retreat back to an Acclamator I-class assault ship in orbit above Geonosis. Jind had by now realized that Gohan was also involved in the battle, and attempted to seek his assistance. Luckily for him and Kshk, Gohan had already anticipated Jind's need for assistance, and had already mounted up an assault force of Republic gunships, providing Esimal and his platoon with safe passage. They were able to battle their way back to the Acclamator Assault Ship, fleeing the Geonosis battle.

I believe we are in your debt, Commander. "
" Just doing my job, Jedi Master.

—Jind and Gohan

Jind suffered minor injuries but recovered after a week's rest. Though none of his platoon was killed, some had taken major injury. Jind made sure all of them were treated well and made full recoveries.
