Здравствуйте, уважаемые читатели блога KtoNaNovenkogo.ru. Сегодня пойдет речь о такой незаменимой программе для любого пользователя компьютера (и вебмастера, в частности), как Total Commander. Наверное, для очень многих людей присутствие на компьютере этого файлового менеджера стало уже жизненной необходимостью, а для некоторых он (в девичестве — Windows Commander) является своеобразным порталом, с которого они начинают работу на своем ПК.
Вы используете в своей работе Тотал или его аналоги Пользуетесь стандартным проводником Windows Странно, но и одновременно понятно. То, что видит неподготовленный пользователь сразу после установки этой программы на свой компьютер, может его несколько озадачить.
Куча «лишней» информации о файлах, множество непонятных выпадающих меню и не лучший (на мой взгляд) изначальный набор настроек приводят неизбежно к тому, что пользователь делает неправильный вывод (проводник — маст хев, а это — непонятно что). Этой статьей я хочу попытаться показать потенциал коммандера и рассказать, как именно его можно сделать «красавчиком».
История Total Commander, его установка и нюансы
Сначала давайте немного окунемся в историю создания и развития этого файлового менеджера, а потом уже посмотрим, что именно можно слепить из этого изначально не очень симпатичного, но и одновременно гениального творения. Вообще, идея двухоконного варианта была реализована чуть ли не на заре эры компьютеров.
Наверное, кто-то из читателей еще помнит Norton Commander, который являлся для многих окном в файловый мир Доса. Все программы, игры и другие вещи пользователи открывали именно из этого менеджера. Ну и, соответственно, копировали, удаляли, заменяли и перемещали. Двухоконный режим работы был очень удобен и не требовал использования мыши для совершения различных операций, ибо для этого были назначены соответствующие горячие клавиши.
Потом уже, при появлении первых версий графической операционной системы Windows, все большее и большее распространение стал приобретать интегрированный в «окошки» проводник. Но он, увы, не был столь удобным. Упор в нем был сделан на использование мыши (выделение, перетаскивание, копирование в буфер обмена, контекстное меню правой кнопки) и главное — был осуществлен отход от двухоконного режима работы.
Люди мучились, стенали, но продолжали пользоваться проводником Windows, ибо не знали, что существуют альтернативные варианты, а когда узнавали, то было уже поздно, ибо они привыкали. Именно для ликвидации этого недостатка под Виндовс стали появляться программы двухоконных файловых менеджеров очень напоминающие своим внешним видом синие окошки Нортон Коммандера.
Самыми яркими представителями стали существующие до сих пор Far Manager и Volkov Commander. Внешним видом они очень напоминали классический Нортон. Именно эти программы я использовал в начале своего знакомства с Виндовс, ибо проводник мне казался тогда (и кажется сейчас) неудачным решением со всех точек зрения.
Но затем я решил попробовать Windows Commander (до 2002 года Тотал именно так и назывался, но потом мелкомягкие попросили разработчика убрать запатентованное ими слово из названия). Собственно, с этого и начинается эра освоения мною этого файлового менеджера.
Total Commander является, на мой взгляд, очень удачным решением, ибо Far Manager и Volkov со своим досовским внешним видом и графикой навивали на меня тоску и диссонировали с общим антуражем «окошек».
Ну, а когда я стал потихоньку вникать в его функционал и ощущать на себе всю мощь его безграничных возможностей и настроек, то он фактически стал для меня основной программой на компьютере.
А знаете почему Тотал Коммандер вызывает столько восторженных откликов тех пользователей, которые смогли его постичь А потому, что он позволяет сэкономить время на рутинных операциях (мы чаще всего на компе сохраняем, копируем, удаляем или перемещаем объекты или папки) и кроме этого он дает возможность в два клика сделать то, о чем вы могли только мечтать, видя бессилие проводника перед стоящими перед вами задачами.
Итак, первый релиз программы (тогда еще со словом Виндовс в названии) увидел свет в далеком 1993 году. И вот уже почти два десятилетия он очень прочно занимает лидирующую позицию в свой нише. За это время появилось очень много клонов Тотала (среди которых много и бесплатно распространяемых), которые были не хуже, а местами даже лучше оригинала, но в силу приведенных чуть ниже причин, оригинал по-прежнему остается идеалом для многих.
Во многом это определяется силой привычки, но основным фактором такой жизнеспособности стало наличие огромного количество плагинов (дополнений) для Коммандера, которые позволяют реализовать с помощью этого файлового менеджера невообразимо широкий круг задач. Среди плагинов найдут для себя что-нибудь интересное и зеленые ламеры и неимоверно умные гуру-программисты.
Даже сам разработчик этого чуда, Кристиан Гислер, говорил в интервью, что изначально он не верил в такую силу плагинов (хотя их поддержка и была добавлена изначально в менеджер) и многое из того, что сейчас реализовано в Тотале через плагины, никогда бы не пришло ему в голову. Чуть позже мы поговорим о том, где можно скачать нужные вам расширения, на какие типы они подразделяются и как их можно будет установить.
Так же популярность Total Commander во многом определяется очень слабой степенью защиты его платности (в рунете до недавнего времени считалось «круто», когда у тебя полон комп дорогого софта). Да, забыл сказать, что данная программа распространяется по Shareware лицензии, что подразумевает ее бесплатное использование в течении месяца, после чего придется уплатить сумму порядка четырех десятков долларов.
Но на самом деле даже по истечении месяца программа будет исправно работать, разве что только перед запуском программа продолжит просить вас нажать на одну из трех кнопок:
Автор говорит, что такая схема успешно работает, ибо довольно много людей решаются оплатить уже после многих лет использования. Довольно интересное наблюдение, кстати говоря.
Собственно, стоит, наверное, сказать, что скачать Тотал Командер (бесконечно-триальный) текущей версии можно будет на странице официального сайта. На данный момент это 32 и 64 разрядная версия 8.01 final. По сути, разницы в них особой нет, но пользователи мыслят довольно инертно и им для 64 разрядной операционки нужны обязательно столько же разрядные программы.
Начиная с 2009 года в дистрибутив этого файлового менеджера уже зашита поддержка русскоязычного интерфейса (хелп, правда, будет по-прежнему на английском — Гугл переводчик вам в помощь). При установке вас спросят о желаемом языке и о вашем намерении устанавливать все остальные языковые файлы.
Полный русский перевод с русским же хелпом для Коммандера (справа вверху находится кнопка «Справка») можно скачать с официального сайта. Когда вы попробуете войти в этот архив через Total (этот менеджер позволяет входить в архивы, как в обычные папки), то он вам предложит установить данную русификацию:
Если русский хелп вам устанавливать не хочется, то можете воспользоваться его разновидностью онлайн — сайт с русским хелпом для Total Commander.
Стоит обратить внимание, что при установке программы для выбора папки дислокации файлов настройки, нужно будет нажать на кнопку «Задать путь к ini-файлам» (при смене операционки или же переносе настроек вашего Коммандера на другой комп, очень удобно использовать простое копирование именно этих ini, а не вспоминать где и что вы там настраивали -тцать лет назад).
Да и своим друзьям, родственникам или знакомым можно будет установить Тотал и тут же заменить существующий wincmd.ini на свой (и папку с вашими плагинами для расширения функционала скопировать), продемонстрировав тем самым не страшненький умолчательный Коммандер, а созданный вами шедевр юзабельности и функциональности.
Сразу после установки окно программы будет выглядеть примерно так:
Мне не нравится используемый по умолчанию жирный шрифт, не нравится, что выбран подробный режим отображения, что просто пугает неподготовленного пользователя обилием информации. Не нравятся мне и названия каталогов в квадратных скобках, показ расширений отдельно от файлов, скудность панели инструментов и еще многое другое. Мой текущий вариант идеального Тотал Коммандера выглядит так:
Полноразмерный скриншот на страницу не влезет, но и так разница видна не вооруженным взглядом. На самом деле, эта одна из тех программ, с которыми вы будете иметь дело ежедневно (и не в фоновом режиме, как, например, с Punto Switcher) и любая мелочь может вызывать как раздражение, так и положительные эмоции.
В общем-то, в таких глобальных вещах мелочей нет и стоит потратить несколько дней (или хотя бы часов) на подгонку, настройку и обвеску своего Тотала для того, чтобы получать в дальнейшем удовольствие от работы с ним (это похоже на обустройство своего жизненного пространства). Собственно, об этом сейчас и пойдет речь.
Дальнейшую доработку «напильником» Total Commander можно разделить на:
- возню с настройками
- добавление новых кнопок на панель инструментов и удалением с нее всего лишнего
- поиск и установку всевозможных плагинов
Настройка TC — лучшего файлового менеджера
Давайте пробежимся по настройкам этого менеджера, где можно будет много чего подкрутить и приукрасить. Для этого нужно из верхнего меню выбрать «Конфигурация» — «Настройка». На первой вкладке сосредоточены одни из самых важных настроек, определяющих внешний вид и функциональные возможности окна файлового менеджера:
В общем-то, и без моих аляпистых стрелочек вы бы разобрались что к чему. Для этого достаточно снять или установить галочку, после чего нажать на кнопку «Применить» и увидеть воочию внесенные изменения. Буквы дисков можно разместить как в виде выпадающего списка, так и в виде линейки с их пиктограммами. Также имеется возможность отключить панель инструментов, что я бы настоятельно не рекомендовал делать.
Одной из самых существенных доработок функционала Тотал командера в свое время стало появление так называемых вкладок для папок. Фактически, с помощью этой нехитрой штуки разработчик сделал из двухоконного файлового менеджера — многооконный. Архиудобная штука, настройки которой мы рассмотрим чуть ниже.
На следующей вкладке вам предоставляется возможность настроить работу с файлами и папками на панелях этого менеджера:
Показ скрытых и системных файлов лучше всего будет повесить на кнопку панели инструментов или же на комбинацию горячих клавиш (для оперативности). Квадратные скобки, в которые заключаются названия папок, являются рудиментом, который пришел еще с Нортона. Ну, и папки, мне удобнее сортировать так же как и файлики, т.е. по размеру, дате создания и т.п.
На следующей вкладке вы сможете настроить или вообще убрать отображение значков слева от объектов на панелях Total Commander. Размер значков существенно влияет на удобство восприятия информации и работы с этим менеджером, поэтому советую поэкспериментировать. Тоже самое касается и последующих вкладок «Шрифты» и «Цвета». Мне, например, не нравится резкая контрастность, поэтому я выбираю не белый фон на панелях. В общем, на вкус и цвет...
Далее следуют настройки табуляторов (имя, размер, тип файла, дата изменения в верху каждой из двух панелей, если вы не запретили показ табуляторов на первой вкладке настроек):
Здесь как раз можно будет задать показ расширения сразу после имени файла, а так же задать шаблон для отображения размера объектов (не очень удобно, если вам покажут его выраженный в байтах — сложно воспринимать). Мне больше всего приглянулся показанный на скриншоте вариант.
На следующей вкладке можно будет детально настроить отображение и логику, работу так называемых вкладок папок, которые появились в Тотале несколько лет назад:
Я использую приведенные на скриншоте настройки. А сами вкладки создаю следующим образом. Во-первых, нужно разрешить их создание в пункте «Вид окна» настроек Командера. Потом по очереди открываете все папки, для которых вы хотите создать остающиеся навсегда (заблокированные) вкладки. После чего щелкаете правой кнопкой мыши по каждой из них и выбираете из контекстного меню вариант «Заблокировать».
У меня такие вкладки помечаются звездочками. Я распределяю заблокированные вкладки равномерно по обоим панелям Total Commander (их можно перетаскивать мышью). После этого нужно будет сохранить изменения, выбрав из верхнего меню «Конфигурация» — «Сохранить позицию» и «Сохранить настройки».
По мере работы с этим менеджером у вас может оказаться открыто очень большое количество вкладок. В этом случае можно будет выбрать из контекстного меню вариант «Закрыть все вкладки» или же нажать на клавиатуре «Ctrl Shift W» (закрыть все неактивные и незаблокированные вкладки на выбранной панели Тотала). Все не помеченные звездочками вкладки благополучно испарятся.
Следующие важные настройки сосредоточены в пункте «Основные операции»:
Важными я считаю помеченные пункты. По умолчанию в Коммандере выделение нескольких объектов осуществляется правой кнопкой мыши, но лично я был уже довольно сильно извращен проводником Windows и принятый в нем способ выделения (левой клавишей с удержанием контрола или шифта), да и вызов контекстного меню правой кнопкой мыши мне показался более привычным, поэтому я и выбрал этот вариант в настройках файлового менеджера.
На следующей вкладке настроек вы сможете задать внешние программы для просмотра содержимого файлов в Total при нажатии на кнопку (или клавишу клавиатуры) F3 (просмотр) или F4 (редактирование). Например, тем кто работает с сайтами довольно удобным может показаться вариант открытия файликов в редакторе Notepad при нажатии на F3.
Все оставшиеся вкладки (кроме «Плагины», которую мы рассмотрим чуть ниже) не так важны, но тоже могут содержать любопытные настройки.
Примечательно, что на вкладке «Разное» можно будет переопределить горячие клавиши в Commander. Их изначальный список вы можете найти в хелпе или же посмотреть тут. Давайте, например, зададим для «показа и скрытия системных файлов» сочетание клавиш Ctrl Tab.
Для этого ставим галочку напротив Ctrl, выбираем из выпадающего списка Tab, щелкаем по лупе и в открывшемся окне находим в разделе «Вид» команду скрытия или показа системных объектов. Затем обязательно щелкаем по зеленой галочке расположенной рядом, после чего она станет серой. Все, закрываем окно настроек и опробываем наше нововведение.
Плагины и панель управления Total Commander
Теперь давайте поговорим за плагины для Тотала. Существует их очень много и на официальном сайте разработчика этого менеджера для них выделена отдельная страница. Однако там все на англицком и очень с краткими описаниями. Поэтому я советую для поиска и ознакомления с расширениями использовать один замечательный русскоязычный сайт WinCMD.ru.
В левой колонке вы найдете список систематизированных разделов с плагинами, перейдя в которые вы увидите их подробное описание, скриншоты и ссылки для скачивания. Данный сайт хоть и выглядит слегка заброшенным, но тем не менее предоставляет довольно много полезной информации.
Вообще, плагины для Тотал Коммандера делятся на несколько видов. Это становится понятным из соответствующей вкладки настроек программы:
У меня установлено довольно много расширений, например, для внутреннего просмотровщика (F3 — окно просмотра откроется во внешней вкладки или Ctrl Q — просмотр файла будет осуществляться на соседней панели). Данные плагины имеют расширение .WLX и посмотреть все установленные у вас расширения такого типа можно будет, нажав кнопку «Настроить» в соответствующей области:
Такое обилие плагинов в моем Тотал Командере позволяет, выделив нужный файлик на панели и нажав Ctrl Q, увидеть на соседней панели его содержимое, будь то видео, аудио, документ ворда или любой другой объект распространенного формата. Если вы будете с помощью стрелочек на клаве перемещаться по файлам, то в соседнем окне просмотра будет, благодаря этим плагинам, оперативно отображаться их содержимое.
Вообще, в моем варианте программы напихано всяких расширений даже сверх меры, но запас, как говорится, карман не рвет. Кроме упомянутого чуть выше сайта, плагины можно будет скачать еще и с сайта TotalCMD.net.
Если вам будет лень самим искать подходящие расширения, то можете использовать мои плагины. Правда при этом сбросятся ваши настройки Тотала и заменятся на мои. Если вас это устраивает, либо вы способны сами выдрать из моего Wincmd.ini строки относящиеся к плагинам.
Вам останется только его распаковать и скопировать папку Plugins в корневую директорию вашего менеджера (totalcmd), а файл конфигурации Wincmd.ini (в нем прописаны установленные плагины) киньте либо тоже в корень папки totalcmd, либо в то место, которое вы задали для хранения Wincmd при установке Коммандера (см. выше).
Теперь давайте немного поговорим за панель инструментов, которую вы можете настраивать по своему собственному усмотрению. Делается это довольно просто — щелкаете правой кнопки мыши по пустому месту (или по значку) панели инструментов и выбираете пункт контекстного меню «Изменить». Если щелкнули по значку, то вместе с вышеозначенным пунктом вы получите возможность удалить, скопировать или вырезать уже имеющийся в наличии значок с панели:
В результате откроется окно добавления нового пункта на эту панель:
У вас появится возможность создать кнопку:
Для выполнения одной из предусмотренных в Total Commander команд (например, все того же скрытия или отображения системных файлов, для которого мы уже создали горячие клавиши чуть выше по тексту). Для этой цели предусмотрена кнопка с лупой на приведенном чуть выше скриншоте, нажав на которую вы получите возможность выбрать нужную вам команду из поистине грандиозного списка:
Внизу окна имеется поле «Фильтр», где можно будет вбить, например, номер нужной вам команды. Я использую уже упомянутую кнопку скрытия\показа системных объектов (номер 2011); инвертирование выделения (525); закрыть все вкладки (3008); открыть папку под курсором на другой панели (3004); быстрый просмотр (304); групповое переименование (2400); копировать в буфер имена объектов с путями (2018); показать содержимое корзины Windows (2127); поиск файлов (501); просмотр эскизов (269).
Можно будет также создать кнопку для запуска любой программы установленной на вашем компьютере. Для этого из выпадающего списка кнопки «Изменить» вам нужно выбрать пункт «Вставить имя». Для чего это может понадобиться
Если вы проникнитесь духом Тотала, то он у вас обязательно будет стоять в автозагрузке, а благодаря кнопкам запуска других утилит из панели инструментов этого файлового менеджера, вы будете избавлены от необходимости использовать лаунчер или захламлять ярлыками рабочий стол.
- Можно будет вставить разделитель (вертикальная черта) для отделения блоков кнопок, задать перенос строки или даже добавить пиктограмму для открытия новой панели.
Для каждой создаваемой на панели инструментов кнопки вы сможете выбрать значок. Причем, если не найдется ничего подходящего в используемой по умолчанию библиотеке, то никто вам не мешает с помощью кнопки с двумя >> найти другую библиотеку иконок на вашем компьютере или же выбрать отдельный файл с иконкой (например, с расширением png). Где надыбать много красивых иконок я вас учить не буду, ибо это идет вразрез с религией этого блога (ну, или типа того).
Что умеет делать Тотал Коммандер (основное)
Трудно отсортировать его основные возможности. Понятно, что он позволяет удобным для пользователя способом сортировать, удалять, копировать и просматривать информацию о всех объектах находящихся на вашем компьютере или же на сетевых дисках. С помощью плагинов можно будет просматривать даже содержимое мобильных устройств.
Но кроме этого Total Commander умеет и имеет много чего полезного:
Поиск в нем (Alt F7) во многом превосходит поисковые возможности операционной системы. Вебмастерам будет особенно полезен поиск по содержимому файлов (мне это помогло отыскать сигнатуры вируса на своем сайте). Помните я рассказывал про такой чудесный инструмент как Firebugдля Фаерфокса. Когда вы с его помощью изучаете свой сайт, то с поиском CSS правил, отвечающих за что-то на веб странице, проблем не возникает, ибо фаербаг сам подскажет название файла стилей и даже строку в нем.
Другое дело — поиск нужного объекта в папках движка сайта (CMS может содержать несколько тысяч отдельных файликов), который формирует Html код того или иного участка вебстраницы. Вот тут-то вам и пригодится поиск Тотала по содержимому любого количества файлов. Вы можете скачать всю папку на свой компьютер или же можете подключиться к сайту по ФТП с помощью интегрированного в этот менеджер FTP клиента, который по сути не хуже уже описанного мною ФТП менеджера Файлзила:
Если будете искать русские слова в каких-либо файликах, то не забудьте поставить галочку в поле «UTF 8» (читайте про кодировки текста ascii, utf 8 и др.).
Но даже обычный поиск по названию через Тотал Командер имеет очень гибкие настройки (предполагаемый диапазон веса, даты создания, имеющиеся атрибуты), которые прячутся на вкладке «Дополнительно»:
FTP клиент интегрированный в этот файловый менеджер позволяет подключаться к вашему сайту по протоколу ФТП и работать с его объектами точно так, как будто бы они находятся на вашем компьютере. Для выбора подключения достаточно нажать CTRL F, а если еще ни одного соединения вы не настроили, то в открывшемся окне просто нажмите на кнопку «Добавить». Настройки мало чем отличаются от описанного мною FileZilla, но по слухам, в Total Commander есть проблема с сохранностью паролей, что и сподвигло меня перейти на файлзилу.
P.S. Оказывается, что Файлзилла тоже небезопасна, ибо хранит пароли незашифрованными. Недавно их у меня увели, и после проверки обнаружилось, что сайты заражены вирусами. Однако я нашел для себя решение, позволяющее безопасно работать с сайтами по ФТП, как через Тотал Коммандер, так и через Файлзилу. Если вам эта тема интересна, то читайте про менеджер и генератор сложных паролей KeePass и TrueCrypt.
- Показать все файлы без подкаталогов (Ctlr B) — если вам лень лазать по всем подпапкам открытого в одной из вкладок каталога, то можете воспользоваться этой функцией. При желании потом можно будет эти все файлики скопировать (переместить) в какую-либо папку, открытую на соседней панели. Иногда бывает очень полезным.
Групповое переименование (Ctlr M) — выделите на любой вкладке нужное количество файлов, которые нужно переименовать по определенной маске. Инструмент очень навороченный и с помощью него можно творить чудеса:
- Синхронизация каталогов — доступно из меню «Команды». Позволяет сравнивать и дополнять каталоги, например, с ноутбука и стационарного компьютера.
- Внутренние ассоциации — доступно из меню «Файлы». Все объекты, которые вы открываете из Commander с помощью двойного клика, можно ассоциировать (настроить их открытие) с любыми программами на вашем компьютере. И это можно сделать вразрез с тем, какие у вас настроены ассоциации в системе.
- В зависимости от количества установленных в вашем файловом менеджере архивных плагинов, вы сможете прямо в нем распаковывать (Alt F9), упаковывать (Alt F5) и проверять (Alt Shift F9) архивы поддерживаемых этими расширениями типов. Входить в архивы можно как в обычные папки, что очень удобно.
- Можно вывести на принтер список всех выделенных вами объектов (можно и с подкаталогами). Доступно из меню «Файлы» — «Печать». Так же список файлов можно получить и с помощью соответствующих команд Тотала или выбрав соответствующий пункт из верхнего меню «Запуск».
В меню «Вид» можете настроить различные способы отображения. По умолчанию используется подробный режим, но менее давящим на мозг является, на мой взгляд, «краткий».
Для просмотра превьюшек изображений можно использовать режим «Просмотр эскизов» (их размер задается в настройках Коммандера). Конечно же, для просмотра и работы с фотографиями лучше будет использовать специализированные программы (например, любимый мною FastStone Image Viewer), но иногда запускать для этого отдельное приложение бывает не целесообразно.
- Возможно, что сейчас это и не очень актуально, но тем не менее изредка может и пригодиться возможность этого менеджера. Я говорю про возможность разрезать файлик на куски размером не больше заданного, а потом его склеить. Пункты разбить и собрать файлы доступны из одноименного меню.
- Там же имеется возможность создать и проверить контрольную сумму для фалов.
- Как я уже упоминал и показывал выше — для миллиона других команд предусмотренных в Commander можно настроить наборы горячих клавиш или же добавить кнопки на панель инструментов. Возможности в этом плане просто безграничны.
Удачи вам! До скорых встреч на страницах блога KtoNaNovenkogo.ru

Christian name unknown. Inside right who had appeared for Huddersfield Town's reserve side. Made a tremendous debut when he scored a hat-trick but he failed to score in his five remaining appearances. Went on to play for Derby side Qualcast Sports. Debut: 11/9/48 v Warsop Working Mens Club (A). Last appearance: 16/10/48 v Stanton Ironworks (H).
Former Kettering Town, Oakham United and Kimberley Town player who joined Ilkeston in the Summer of 1989. Didn't appear regularly in the team until December when he became first choice left back. Baggley didn't appear for The Robins again after appearing on the opening day of the 1990/91 season. Debut: 12/8/89 v Long Eaton United (A). Last appearance: 18/8/90 v Oldswinford (H). Record: 1989/90 23apps; 1990/91 0 1sub. Total: 23 1sub.
Born Sheffield 29/5/1979. Attacking right sided midfield player formerly with Barnsley (1app), Carlisle United (9apps), Hednesford Town and Emley. Joined Ilkeston midway through the 2001/02 season but made little impact and he was never on the winning side in his 7 appearances, 1 of which was as a substitute. Debut: 2/2/02 v Crawley Town (H). Last appearance: 9/3/02 v Kettering Town (H). Bagshaw later played for Sheffield and Ossett Albion.
Goalkeeper who after a difficult start impressed with his handling and bravery. Took over from Paul Daley before Christmas in 1973 and held down a regular place for the remainder of the season, making 20 appearances in all. The arrival of new 'keeper Dick Foulkes during the Summer of 1974 ended Bailey's short time at the club. Debut: 15/12/73 v Eastwood Town (H). Last appearance: 27/4/74 v Worksop Town (A).
Born Nottingham. Young reserve right back whose first team opportunities were limited before he went on to play for Eastwood Town and Hucknall Town. Debut: 1/5/00 v Margate (H). Last appearance: 10/3/01 v Salisbury City (H). Record: 1999/00 1 1sub; 2000/01 0 1sub. Total: 1 2subs.
Short inside right previously with Mapperley Celtic and Nottingham Forest. At times Bailey looked the part, and he scored a hat-trick at Stamford on 14/9/57, but he lacked consistency and lost his place to Rex Osman. He scored 8 goals in his 20 appearances for Ilkeston in his one season with the club. Obviously a talented player he was given another crack at trying to build a professional career when he joined Notts County but it wasn't to be and he returned to non League football with Brush Sports. Debut: 24/8/57 v Nottingham Forest 'A' (H). Last appearance: 28/4/58 v Belper Town (A).
Reserves centre forward who made 4 appearances halfway through the 1968/69 season following John Froggatt's departure. Despite scoring a goal in each of his first two games he looked out of his depth. Debut: 25/1/69 v Lockheed Leamington (A). Last appearance: 1/3/69 v Ashby Institute (H).
Born Nottingham 25/4/1966. Effective central midfielder who knew his limitations and worked hard for the team. Spent most of his career playing non-League football around the Nottingham area and was with Clifton All Whites, Carlton Athletic, Basford United, Dunkirk, Sutton Town and Hucknall Town before joining Ilkeston in the Summer of 1992. His debut coincided with the opening of the New Manor Ground and the team enjoyed great success while he was at the club. He won a Derbyshire Senior Cup winners medal in 1993, a West Midlands Regional League championship medal and was player of the year a year later, and was captain when the team won promotion to the Southern League Premier Division in 1995. Left Ilkeston later in 1995 and went on to play for Shepshed Dynamo, Lincoln United, Grantham Town, Stamford, Gedling Town as player manager, and Arnold Town. Became first team coach at Gedling Town in 2009. Debut: 15/8/1992 v Chasetown (H). Last appearance: 25/11/95 v Gainsborough Trinity (H). Record: 1992/93 37 2subs, 4goals; 1993/94 37 3subs, 4goals; 1994/95 43 2subs, 4goals; 1995/96 20 2subs, 2goals. Total: 137 9subs, 14goals.
Reserves inside forward who made occasional appearances for the first team during several seasons at the club. Went on to play for Long Eaton Town and Sutton Town. Debut: 18/2/50 v Sutton Town (A).

- "We're headed toward a large standoff with the rebels. We're committing a fair portion of the fleet, and if the damned Rebellion wants to stand a chance of keeping that sector, they'll have to do the same. This promises to be the largest battle since Endor."
- ―Grand Moff Randd
The Battle of Jakku was the final large-scale military engagement in the Galactic Civil War that took place in the year 5 ABY. During the waning months of the conflict, Counselor Gallius Rax assumed control of the Galactic Empire and concentrated much of its remaining forces on Jakku, an Inner Rim desert world where the Empire would make its last stand against the New Republic.
Unknown to his own soldiers, Rax plotted to destroy the Empire in order to fulfill his obligations to the late Emperor Sheev Palpatine. However, he also intended to retreat into the Unknown Regions where he could forge a new Empire with those whom he regarded as the worthy few, such as Commandant Brendol Hux. When the Republic's forces attacked the Empire on Jakku, Rax attempted to destroy the entire planet along with both factions. However, his efforts were thwarted by Grand Admiral Rae Sloane, who killed Rax during the battle.
While the fighting on Jakku would continue in the months that followed Rax's death, the battle was a decisive victory for the New Republic. In the aftermath, Grand Vizier Mas Amedda and Chancellor Mon Mothma signed the Galactic Concordance on Chandrila, officially marking the end of both the civil war and the Empire itself.
- "It will be our proving ground. We will test ourselves on Jakku. And we will do so far from the eyes of the galaxy, far from the eyes of Mon Mothma and her sycophants. And when the time is right, when we have whetted ourselves to a vicious point, we will strike once again. The Senate is injured. The Republic is wounded. We will go in for the kill, but it is too soon and we are too weak."
- ―Counselor Gallius Rax
During the Battle of Endor, the Galactic Empire was drastically weakened when the Alliance to Restore the Republic managed to destroy its dreaded battle station, the second Death Star. Before it was destroyed, Luke Skywalker, a Jedi Knight, turned his father, the Sith Lord Darth Vader, away from the dark side of the Force. Vader, once again the Jedi Anakin Skywalker, threw Darth Sidious, his former Sith Master and Galactic Emperor of the New Order, down the second Death Star's reactor core, where he died. The Rebels celebrated their victory on the Endor moon, believing the fight to be won. Nevertheless the Rebellion, which had been reorganized into a government known as the New Republic, would still be engaged in bloody combat against the remaining forces of the Empire in the year following the station's destruction.
In the months after the Battle of Endor, the New Republic won a string of victories against the Empire, consolidated control over much of the galaxy, and reconvened the Galactic Senate on Chandrila. Meanwhile, the Empire splintered into several Imperial remnants including Governor Adelhard's Imperial remnant and Grand Moff Lozen Tolruck's remnant on Kashyyyk. While Grand Vizier Mas Amedda still ruled Coruscant, he was largely a powerless figurehead who lived under house arrest on the wartorn Imperial capital.
By 5 ABY, Fleet Admiral Gallius Rax had assumed leadership of the Imperial remnant forces in the Vulpinus Nebula, the Almagest, the Recluse's Nebula, the Queluhan Nebula, the Ro-Loo Triangle, and the Inamorata. Rax also commanded the Ravager, the last Super Star Destroyer under Imperial control. Rax exercised control through his puppet Grand Admiral Rae Sloane, an able commander who served as the Empire's public face. Rax manipulated Sloane into instigating faux peace talks with the New Republic. After framing Sloane for the Attack on Chandrila, Rax assumed leadership of the Imperial remnants and proclaimed himself Counselor to the Empire. He then brought the Ravager as well as most of, if not the entirety of, the remaining Imperial fleet to Jakku.
Unknown to Rax's subordinates, Jakku had been designated as the staging ground in Emperor Palpatine's Contingency plan to ensure that the Empire would not outlive him if he were to die. As a Sith Lord, Palpatine had no plan of delegating his Empire to a successor. Palpatine had met Rax on Jakku after the young orphan had sneaked aboard his yacht in 25 BBY. Sensing potential in the boy, Palpatine tasked Rax with guarding a mysterious excavation site in the Plaintive Hand plateau, which later became the Jakku Observatory complex. In return, Palpatine arranged for Rax to receive an education and engineered his rise to Fleet Admiral. Throughout his life, Rax was tasked with carrying out the Emperor's Contingency.
- "If an Empire cannot protect its Emperor then that Empire must be deemed a failure. It collapses not only because its central figure is gone, but because it must not be allowed to remain!"
- ―Emperor Sheev Palpatine, to Gallius Rax
Under Rax's command, Imperial forces established a presence on the desert planet for months prior to the New Republic accidentally discovering them. The long wait coupled with Jakku's harsh and bleak climate exacted a heavy psychological toll on the Imperial forces. Many of the Imperial stormtroopers and officers stationed on Jakku became undisciplined and failed to take care of their uniforms and armor. They also terrorized the local communities by stealing food and water. Rax also exercised harsh discipline against personnel who questioned their purpose on Jakku. One stormtrooper RK-242 was beaten up by his Sergeant Rylon and comrades for expressing a desire not to be on Jakku.
In addition to the orbiting Imperial armada, Counselor Rax also maintained an Imperial base in the Sinking Fields for his ground forces. In addition, Rax developed a working relationship with the local Hutt crime lord Niima. Niima's slaves and henchmen kidnapped many children from small villages and makeshift orphanages run by the Anchorites. Rax had once been a servant to the Anchorite Kolob and sought revenge against the Anchorites for his harsh upbringing at the hands of Kolob. These children were then trained by the former Commandant Brendol Hux into ruthless child soldiers who were prepared to obey and kill at Rax's orders. While searching for Rax, Sloane and Brentin learned about Rax's activities. These revelations only intensified Sloane's hatred of Rax, who had usurped her authority during the Attack on Chandrila.
Rax also maintained another Imperial facility in Jakku's Plaintive Hand plateau known as the Observatory. The Observatory housed a replica of the late Emperor's pleasure yacht Imperialis and a computerized map of the Unknown Regions based on Grand Admiral Thrawn's knowledge of that unexplored region. The Observatory was also built over a deep borehole which led to the molten core of Jakku. As part of the Contingency, Rax planned to destroy the Imperial remnants and their New Republic opponents by blowing up the planet. In secret, Rax subverted the Contingency by secretly arranging for himself and other "worthy" Imperials like Hux, his son Armitage Hux, and the child soldiers to escape into the Unknown Regions to rebuild the Empire.
Discovery and deadlock
- "Those who vote no: Recognize that you are marked. You will be marked as cowards at best and traitors at worst."
- ―An excerpt from Chancellor Mothma's speech urging the Galactic Senate to send military forces to Jakku
While searching for the fugitive Rae Sloane, the New Republic operative Norra Wexley and her team discovered Counselor Rax's Imperial remnant fleet above Jakku. Norra and the bounty hunter Jas Emari used an escape pod to land on the planet while her son Temmin Wexley and Sinjir Rath Velus took their ship Moth back to the New Republic capital on Chandrila. Temmin sent his B1 battle droid and companion Mister Bones to look after his mother on Jakku. Norra and Jas were captured by stormtroopers. Norra was forced to work at a kesium gas rig while Jas found herself a captive of Niima the Hutt and the bounty hunter Mercurial Swift; with the latter seeking to collect a Black Sun bounty on Jas as punishment for an earlier ambush on Taris.
Meanwhile, Sloane and the former rebel operative Brentin Lore Wexley traveled to Jakku to seek revenge against Gallius Rax. After encountering Niima, they managed to convince the Hutt crime lady to take them to Rax's weapons facility. Norra later escaped her Imperial captors with the help of Mister Bones. Jas later escaped from her captors and reunited with Norra. Continuing their hunt for Sloane, Norra and her comrades tracked them down to the Plaintive Hand plateau. However, Counselor Rax spotted Sloane among Niima's caravan and bombarded them. Norra and Jas could only watch as Rax and his Imperial forces took Sloane and Brentin into custody. The former Grand Admiral and rebel operative were imprisoned at the main Imperial base on Jakku, where Rax made preparations for his apocalyptic showdown with the New Republic.
Elsewhere, Temmin and Sinjir returned to Chandrila with news of the Imperial presence on Jakku. The two warned Chancellor Mon Mothma, Princess Leia Organa, and Han Solo. However, Mothma's political rival Senator Tolwar Wartol had planted a listening device on Leia and Han's nanny droid T-2LC. Wartol leaked this news to the media and accused Mothma of withholding information from the public. Per New Republic procedure, the Galactic Senate was charged with voting to authorize any large-scale military action by the New Republic military.
During the Senate's first vote on the issue on Chandrila, the vote failed to pass since Mon Mothma failed to secure a majority by five votes. This issue was complicated by the New Republic's efforts to transfer its capital from Chandrila to the agricultural world of Nakadia in the Mid Rim. Later, the Chancellor discovered that Senator Wartol had conspired with Black Sun and the Red Key Raiders to coerce five senators into voting against Mothma's resolution. These senators were Ashmin Ek of Anthan Prime, Rethalow of Frong, Dor Wieedo of Rodia, Grelka Sorka, and Nim Tar. Mothma managed to delay the re-vote by eating pta fruit aboard Wartol's ship. Since Nakadia had strict biosecurity laws, Wartol's ship was quarantined for several hours.
Meanwhile, Mothma dispatched a team of five spies consisting of Han Solo, Temmin, Sinjir, the former New Republic Special Forces soldier Jom Barell, and Sinjir's boyfriend Conder Kyl to spy on the five senators and convince them to change their votes. They discovered that Ashmin Ek, Rethalow, and Dor Wieedo had been bribed into opposing Mothma's resolution in favor of favorable trade deals. Nim Tar's child and Sorka's pet jerba had been kidnapped. Solo and his team managed to rescued Nim Tar's child from the gangsters. Sinjir then posed as Mothma's adviser and issued a missive offering to pardon the five senators for their transgressions if they voted in favor of Mothma's resolution the second time. Due to Sinjir's connivance, the five senators voted in favor of sending New Republic forces to Jakku.
- "The battle is upon us. Go! Go and drag them down to the ground and break their necks with your boots! Take their heads! End their tyranny!"
- ―Counselor Gallius Rax extolling his men to destroy the New Republic
Following the Galactic Senate's decision to intervene on Jakku, the New Republic mobilized its military forces. Besides defeating the Imperial remnant fleets, the New Republic's other objectives on Jakku included capturing a critical sector in the Galactic Civil War and taking out an Imperial weapons facility on the planet. With the expanding New Republic Defense Fleet facing a shortage of starships and the Empire still controlling several major galactic shipyards, General Carlist Rieekan assembled several boarding parties to capture Star Destroyers from the Empire. These boarding parties consisted of several former Imperials including Lieutenants Thane Kyrell and Kendy Idele, who were familiar with the Star Destroyer layouts including their hyperdrives and self-destruct mechanisms. The New Republic space assault was commanded by Admiral Ackbar and Commodore Kyrsta Agate while the ground assault was commanded by Lieutenant General Brockway and General Tyben; with the latter being based on Chandrila.
Meanwhile, Counselor Gallius Rax mobilized all Imperial forces on and above Jakku. Rax tasked Grand Moff Randd with commanding the Imperial fleet and assigned General Hodnar Borrum with commanding the Empire's ground forces on Jakku. Prior to the battle, Rax also used his child soldiers to secretly assassinate the Imperial propagandist Ferric Obdur as part of the Contingency. As a demonstration of his power, Rax also forced Sloane and Brentin to watch as his child soldiers executed a contingent of stormtroopers. Rax later delivered a rousing speech urging his forces not to show any quarter to the enemy and claiming their victory was at hand. This speech was broadcast to Imperial forces via hologram. In secret, Rax planned to destroy most of his forces and the planet as part of the Contingency. He and a select few would then depart for the Unknown Regions in a replica of the yacht Imperialis.
Due to the Empire's martial defeats across the galaxy and the severe depletion of its military reserves, the New Republic forces outnumbered their Imperial counterparts. New Republic military assets included the flagship Admiral Ackbar's MC80 star cruiser Home One, three Nadiri Starhawk-class battleships including Agate's ship Concord, and the Alderaanian escort frigate Sunspire. In addition, the New Republic deployed several starfighters, U-wings, and ground forces including the elite SpecForces and New Republic army. Soon after, Ackbar would call on the entire rebel fleet to join the battle, including over 20 MC80 star cruisers, several CR90 corvettes, and Inferno Squad for the battle.
Meanwhile, Imperial assets included Rax's Super Star Destroyer Ravager, Captain Groff's Star Destroyer Punishment, and Captain Ciena Ree's Star Destroyer Inflictor, Admiral Garrick Versio's Star Destroyer Eviscerator, and many other Star Destroyers. Other Imperial forces included TIE fighters, TIE strikers, TIE bombers, TIE interceptors, stormtroopers, sandtroopers, and various types of walkers such as AT-ATs and AT-STs. Unknown to both Rax's forces and the enemy, Rax's secret weapon was to explode the planet Jakku's core, destroying both forces save for a few selected Imperials deemed worthy to survive.
- "Admiral, listen, Get everyone you can to hit that dreadnought from aft. Take out its engines. Send every starfighter, every CR90, anyone—"
- ―Commodore Kyrsta Agate
The Battle of Jakku occurred one year and four days after the battle of Endor. Upon exiting hyperspace, the New Republic fleet began bombarding the Imperial fleet, which fired in response. Both sides deployed starfighters and dogfights took place both in space and the skies above Jakku. During the fighting, Captain Wedge Antilles and Temmin Wexley flew X-wing starfighters as part of Phantom Squadron, which was tasked with protecting the capital ships from Imperial TIE fighters. At the urging of Temmin, Phantom Squadron entered Jakku's atmosphere to escort the U-wing landers carrying New Republic commandos to battle. In response to the New Republic landings, the Empire deployed several walkers into the desert to defend the main Imperial base from encroaching enemy forces.
Despite their superior numbers and the clear space above Jakku, the New Republic fleet was unable to penetrate the neatly compressed Imperial fleet. The Imperials had used their Star Destroyers to form a strong defensive perimeter around the Super Star Destroyer Ravager, which blunted the New Republic assault. Throughout the battle, the smaller Imperial warships would repeatedly open formation to allow the Ravager to unleash its formidable firepower against the New Republic fleet. Advancing forward, Admiral Ackbar and Commodore Agate managed to tighten the radius of the Empire's defense by deploying the New Republic's three advanced Starhawk cruisers and several CR90 corvettes as part of a wedge strategy to break through the Imperial formation. However, the Republic fleet was still unable to penetrate the Imperial defensive perimeter and lost several ships in the process.
The tide of the battle began to turn in the New Republic's favor when Captain Groff of the Star Destroyer Punishment panicked and rammed his starship into the Starhawk Amity. Despite the Amity's destruction, Groff's suicide attack created a hole in the Imperial defense. At the urging of Admiral Ackbar, the Starhawk Concord, captained by Commodore Agate, took advantage of this hole to attack the Ravager directly. Though the Concord was severely damaged by the Ravager's firepower, Commodore Agate used her ship's state-of-the-art tractor beam to latch onto the Ravager. Ackbar then dispatched several New Republic ships and fighters to knock out the Super Star Destroyer's engines.
As a result, both stricken vessels crashed onto the surface of Jakku. Agate perished with her ship but Grand Moff Randd fled the Ravager in an escape pod. With Ravager plummeting rapidly towards Jakku's surface, Admiral Ackbar warned New Republic soldiers and pilots on the surface to avoid falling debris and take cover. With the battle turning against the Empire, Imperial ships began entering the planet's upper atmosphere in order to tighten their cordon, unleashing a fanatical defense to prevent the New Republic from capturing its secret research facility below. In a last-ditch effort, crippled Imperial ships began using their tractor beams to drag Republic vessels into the sandy wastes. Upon impact with the surface, nearly the entire populations of the falling ships would perish.
Boarding the Inflictor
- "... you're going to crash the Inflictor into the planet."
"I have to keep the Inflictor out of rebel hands no matters what. This is the only way, Nash."
"The hell it is. You can set the coordinates and get out of there."
"And leave the ship to the rebels They'd take the bridge, change course, and fly off with their new Star Destroyer."
- ―Commander Nash Windrider arguing with Captain Ciena Ree
Following the destruction of the Ravager, New Republic forces began assaulting the concentrated Imperial positions from multiple sides at once both in space and on the ground. With the Imperials no longer having the martial advantage it once had in the years before Endor, outdated battle tactics as much as flawed leadership gnawed away at an Imperial victory. The centralized nature of the Imperial command also constricted the ability of Imperial forces to respond to their New Republic adversaries. With the battle turning against the Empire, Captain Ciena Ree of the Inflictor wondered whether the Empire's plans for making a stand at Jakku were betrayed by an admiral or Grand Moff in a power play. New Republic attacks on Imperial flanks also contributed to heavy Imperial losses.
Before Captain Ree could contact Grand Moff Randd to suggest splitting up the fleet to combat the Rebel star cruisers from multiple angles, as well as sending twenty-gun raiders into the atmosphere to support the TIE fighters in orbit, her ship was suddenly boarded by New Republic soldiers led by her lover Thane Kyrell. With no choice, Captain Ree attempted to activate the ship's self-destruct, only to discover that the boarders had disabled it. Seeing no other option, as well as seeing a way to leave the Empire she disliked while keeping her oath, Ree ordered her crew to evacuate and then scuttled the ship by crashing the Star Destroyer onto the surface of Jakku.
As the Inflictor plunged into Jakku's atmosphere, Kyrell managed to force his way into the command bridge. Wanting to free herself of her oath through death, Ree pleaded with Thane to leave in an escape pod before the Inflictor crashed. However, Thane was unwilling to abandon his lover and forcibly rescued her. Following a struggle, Thane managed to stun Ciena and carry her into an escape pod before the Inflictor crashed. The two landed in the deserts of Jakku where their pod was picked up by New Republic soldiers, who took Captain Ree into custody.
- "Ground forces are finding some success, Admiral. We have pushed their line back, klick by klick. We may be advancing on their base by nightfall... We've hemorrhaging lives. The Empire is fighting less like the Empire and more like an insurgent force, Admiral. They take risks. They sacrifice their soldiers. It's pandemonium but they seem to be using it to their advantage and not their detriment."
- ―General Tyben reporting on the ground assault to Admiral Ackbar
In order to assault Imperial ground facilities, General Tyben and Lieutenant General Brockway dispatched U-wings to deploy New Republic commando forces. The New Republic U-wings were escorted by several New Republic starfighter units including Phantom Squadron. Temmin and his fellow Phantom Squadron fliers began strafing the Imperial walkers. During the U-wing landing wave, the New Republic SpecForces soldier Jom Barell sacrificed his life by donning his jetpack and intercepting an Imperial concussion missile. Barell was killed by the missile but saved his comrades aboard the U-wing from death.
The ground assault also coincided with Norra and Bones flying a stolen Imperial shuttle in an attempt to reach the Imperial base in the Sinking Fields to find Brentin and Grand Admiral Sloane. Norra had escaped from Imperial captivity with the help of Mister Bones. Temmin almost shot down his mother's shuttle by mistake but Bones managed to lower the shuttle's ramp and signal to Temmin. After a brief conversation, mother and son parted company and returned to their missions. Norra and Bones managed to land at the main Imperial base where they found Brentin and Sloane, who had managed to free themselves from Rax's captivity. Following a brief struggle, Sloane managed to convinced her nominal foes to travel to the Observatory in order to stop Rax once and for all.
Meanwhile, Jas managed to convince the bounty hunters Dengar, Embo, and Jeeta to join forces with her in fighting for the New Republic in return for receiving pardons. When Mercurial Swift objected, the bounty hunters ejected him from their Corellian shuttle before flying to join the fray. Jas' plan work and the bounty hunters secured pardons from the New Republic and later formed a bounty hunting group.
As the battle raged, General Tyben contacted Admiral Ackbar by hologram to inform him that New Republic forces under Lieutenant General Brockway had made some success against the Imperial Army and were pushing their line back klick by klick. Since the Empire was fighting like an insurgent force and using suicidal tactics, the New Republic ground forces sustained significant casualties. Despite the limited progress, Tyben hoped to seize the main Imperial base by nightfall if they could stem their casualties. Tyben also observed the Empire's willingness to take heavy casualties in order to slow down the New Republic advance. Despite Tyben's insistence that he be allowed to come to Jakku, Admiral Ackbar insisted that Tyben remain on Chandrila in case the Battle of Jakku turned out to be a ruse.
The destruction of the Ravager turned the tide of the ground battle decisively in favor of the New Republic. Temmin's X-wing was damaged by falling debris from space and crash-landed in the desert. He was accosted by three sandtroopers and an AT-ST walker. Before the Imperials could harm the New Republic pilot, Mister Bones, who had parted company with Norra, attacked and killed them with Temmin's help. However, Bones was permanently disintegrated when the AT-ST he had hijacked was bombed by two passing A-wing starfighters.
Elsewhere, a stormtrooper named Corlac shot his corporal, feeling that there was no more reason to fight anymore. His fellow squadmate Terex questioned this, but after they realized that the Empire was losing the battle, they both quit. They buried their armor to keep the New Republic soldiers from hunting them down and walked off into the sunset. A later, Corlac and Terex were able to use a head of a AT-AT and make it into an improvised starship to get them off-world.
- "You better be right about this Rax. Because if I find out you're wrong or that you're playing me I'll have my droid here break every centimeter of every bone in your bodies. Are we clear"
"Clear as the blue sky, Norra Wexley."
- ―Norra striking an alliance with Rae Sloane and Brentin to stop Galliux Rax
Amidst the fighting on Jakku, Counselor Rax traveled with Brendol, his son Armitage Hux, Adviser Yupe Tashu, and his contingent of child soldiers on a shuttle to the Observatory. After entering the landing dome, Rax instructed the Huxes and his child soldiers to wait aboard the Emperor's yacht Imperialis while he and Tashu entered the Observatory to implement the final stage of the Contingency. Rax and Tashu made their way to the deep well which led to Jakku's molten core. After Tashu donned a Sith mask and activated a Sith holocron, the two initiated a dark side ritual. After praying, Rax threw an unsuspecting Tashu to his death down the borehole.
Tashu and Rax's ritual caused Jakku's core to shake, triggering a process that would lead to the planet's destruction if left unhindered. Norra along with Sloane and Brentin arrived and resolved to stop Rax's plan. While Brentin and Norra tried to use telescoping vents to seal the shaft, Sloane fought with Rax in hand to hand combat. Despite putting up a fierce fight, Rax gained the upper hand over Sloane and broke a few of her fingers. Hearing Sloane's screams, Norra and Brentin rushed to her aid. Rax managed to kill Brentin with his blaster but Norra managed to pass her blaster to Sloane. This allowed Sloane to kill her nemesis.
In his dying moments, Rax told Sloane that she now served the Contingency and to take the Imperialis into the Unknown Regions to rendezvous with the Emperor's flagship Eclipse. Rax also revealed that the ship contained a data spike that contained the coordinates for a hyperspace route through the volatile region. Sloane then reconciled with her former adversary Norra and vowed to finish Brentin's efforts to steal the borehole. While Sloane sealed the borehole, Norra left with her fallen husband and was rescued by Jas and her fellow bounty hunters, who had arrived in their shuttle. After sealing the borehole, Sloane departed aboard the Imperialis for the Unknown Regions with Brendol, Armitage, and the child soldiers.
End of the Eviscerator
At the same time, Inferno Squad, led by Iden Versio, assisted with the planetside operations. After buying time to evacuate ground forces and destroying TIE bombers from a downed Star Destroyer, Iden and Shriv Suurgav protected the Corvus during its escape, culminating in the apparent demise of Gideon Hask in a dogfight. Seeing an opportunity to save her father, Iden crashed her X-Wing onto the hull of the Eviscerator, almost falling to her death in the process. Fighting her way inside to the bridge, Iden pleaded with her father to come with her, but Garrick refused, urging Iden to survive. Parting with her father on good terms, Iden managed to reach an escape pod before the ship crashed into the planet below. After being rescued from her pod by Del Meeko, they shared a kiss before being interrupted by Shriv, inviting them to watch the end of the battle and the death of the Empire.
- "In the month since the Battle of Jakku, the Empire has attempted no further large-scale offensives. Sources report all Imperial vessels within the Core and Inner Rim staying within the boundaries defined by the treaty. A few prominent members of the Provisional Senate have speculated that the New Republic's war with the remnants of the Empire has finally come to an end and that a final surrender may be imminent. However, in her address today, the chancellor warned that all planets should remain on high alert, and that the New Republic Starfleet should be kept on a war footing for the foreseeable future."
- ―A New Republic news holo
Following the death of Counselor Gallius Rax, Grand Vizier Mas Amedda escaped from the Imperial Palace with the help of a group of child soldiers known as the Anklebiter Brigade. He initiated contact with Chancellor Mothma and sued for peace. In the wake of the Empire's catastrophic defeat at Jakku, Amedda was able to sign a peace treaty known as the Galactic Concordance on Chandrila; formally ending the Galactic Civil War. Under the terms of the Imperial Instruments of Surrender, the remnants of the Empire were ordered to cease fighting and the Imperial government was dissolved immediately. While most Imperial officers were designated as war criminals, non-combatant functionaries were given conditional pardons. While Amedda escaped prosecution and later served as the head of a provisional government on Coruscant, he was widely derided by the media and historians as one of the architects of the Empire.
Despite the Empire's official capitulation, the Imperial remnant on Jakku refused to surrender and continued fighting for several months. While New Republic forces managed to capture the main Imperial base, the retreating Imperials managed to destroy their research base and weapons facility before jumping into the Unknown Regions. While several Imperial captains used their warship's tractor beams to draw New Republic vessels onto the planet's surface, other captains used mysterious hyperspace coordinates to flee into the Unknown Regions. After several months of bitter fighting, New Republic soldiers managed to overcome the last Imperial holdouts on Jakku. The New Republic also had to contend with large numbers of Imperial prisoners.
Over a month following the battle, the Empire did not attempt to instigate any other large-scale offensives with the New Republic. The exhausted Empire would be bound by the punitive treaty, forcing it to order all Imperial vessels located in the Core and Inner Rim to remain within pre-determined boundaries, as well as cede the Imperial capital of Coruscant over to the new government. Harsh war reparations and severe restrictions on its military capabilities effectively turned the fractured Empire into a rump state. With the treaty signed, a few prominent members of the reestablished Galactic Senate believed that the New Republic's war with the Empire was nearing its end and that the Empire's total capitulation was imminent.
Despite the defeat of Imperial forces on Jakku, other scattered Imperial remnants remained in the galaxy but posed little threat to the New Republic; which had gained control over much of the galaxy. Due to the presence of these scattered Imperial remnants, the New Republic Starfleet remained on war footing in the immediate aftermath of the battle. A small but well-armed Imperial fleet led by Jakku veterans Commander Nash Windrider and Grand Moff Randd regrouped in the Queluhan Nebula for an assault on the New Republic. Meanwhile, the alien pirate Eleodie Maracavanya intercepted and destroyed three Imperial II-class Star Destroyers in an attempt to curry favor between his self-proclaimed Sovereign Latitudes of Maracavanya and the New Republic.
Wreckage and conspiracy theories
Following the Battle of Jakku, Niima the Hutt established a black market based on salvaging junk, weapons, computers, and engines from the wrecked starships. Decades later, Jakku's desert landscape was still littered with wreckage from the battle in an area known as the Graveyard of Giants, with the Executor-class Star Dreadnought Ravager and Star Cruisers of both sides littering the landscape. Despite most ships having crashed in the Graveyard, wrecked fighters, warships and miscellaneous debris could be found in locales such as Kelvin Ravine, Carbon Ridge, the Goazon Badlands and other points across the entire world. Survivors of the battle who ejected from a fighter or came down in an escape pod often wandered the desert in search of inhabited settlements. With Jakku's nearly non-existent population at the time, many died of exposure wandering the Goazon, or starved to death in caves, becoming carrion for ripper-raptors. As a result, the planet became littered with bodies, and the bones of fallen soldiers still in uniform strapped to ejector seats or stuck under wreckage littered locales from Feressee's Point to the Spike. The moving sands of the Sinking Fields often exposed crashed ships for a short time before burying them once more. Lifeforms such the iron-beaked carrion birds known as steelpeckers would break down metals in the crashed starships, while transplanted creatures and parasites from the battle would stubbornly find a place in the desert ecology.
After the establishment of Niima Outpost by Niima the Hutt, an entire economy would be established based on the foraging of valuable technology in the Graveyard, with local junk boss Unkar Plutt controlling a monopoly over the business from his base at Niima Outpost following the Hutt's death at the hands of a bounty hunter. As a result, many stories would circulate over the origins of the wreckage and the battle that was fought, with many local residents falsely claiming to have been on the planet when the ships fell.
Most Imperial ships were noted by locals to have suffered considerable battle damage, while some Republic ships did not. To some, this gave further credence to the tractor beam theory of how some of the ships crashed on the surface. The result of washing table gossip, one theory as to why the Empire put up such a fervent defense was to protect a secret research base at Carbon Ridge. This theory was supported by the presence of wide-eyed, bearded old men known as dead-enders twenty-nine years after the battle, with dead-enders throwing rocks and babbling strings of numbers while chasing scavengers away. Some believed that the old men were actually former Imperials guarding their secret base owing to them wearing scraps of old Imperial armor.
Others such as the scavenger Rey, believed that an Imperial warship came down on the Carbon Ridge instead of crashing into the Graveyard, with the surviving officers sending out stormtroopers to secure the crashsite while they waited for a rescue, only to have a giant rockslide bury the ship, leaving the stormtroopers there guarding nothing. It was a known fact to locals that Unkar Plutt became irritated when mentioning Carbon Ridge owing to him having sent a failed expeditionary force of six thugs to the Ridge, only to have four of them return with brittle stormtrooper armor, having found nothing other than abandoned caves. As a result, treasure hunters generally left the caves alone.
The second theory for the stalwart Imperial defense resolved around the rebuttal of the notion that the Imperial base was at Carbon Ridge, but rather that it was underneath the Sinking fields and was a storehouse filled with treasure looted from ancient civilizations and hidden by order of the Emperor. The third theory was that the Emperor maintained a hidden throne room on the planet, and had planned to explore and conquer the rest of the galaxy from this secret facility.
Decades later, the Battle of Jakku would be taught as one of the last major stands of the Empire within the New Republic educational system. Additionally, an Imperial artifact collector would name himself after the battle, going under the pseudonym 'Avenger of Jakku'. With the collapse of the Galactic Empire, the New Republic would turn its attention to reshaping the galactic order. Meanwhile, the Imperial forces that fled into the Unknown Regions eventually reestablished themselves into a militaristic junta called the First Order, that was dedicated to overthrowing the New Republic.
Despite most inhabitants on Jakku either living in the sacred villages of isolationist religious worshippers such as at Tuanul or Niima Outpost, some folks such as Rey, a female human scavenger, scavenged through the old battlefront with her speeder bike and maintained the destroyed AT-AT Hellhound Two as her home.
Decades later, an abandoned Republic corvette carrying secret information coveted by both the Imperials and New Republic during the battle was discovered. It would become the focus of a group of scavengers to retrieve this information.
Twenty-nine years after the battle, the Millennium Falcon piloted by Rey and a defecting First Order Stormtrooper known as Finn would fight against several First Order TIE fighters over the wreckage.
Behind the scenes
The Battle of Jakku made its first appearance in Claudia Gray's 2015 novel Lost Stars. The battle also appears in Star Wars Battlefront as a free downloadable level released on December 8, 2015, two weeks before the premiere of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. Anyone who pre-ordered the game received the DLC one week early on December 1, 2015. The space portion of the battle would also appear in Hyperspace Mountain, a temporary overlay of Disneyland's Space Mountain attraction that opened on November 16, 2015 as part of the Season of the Force event. The attraction storyline puts guests into the role of a recon team sent to investigate the Imperial presence on Jakku, which escalates into the beginnings of the battle.
The Battle of Jakku also serves as the main conflict of Chuck Wendig's 2017 novel Aftermath: Empire's End.
