    The Empire learned that a leader (diplomat) of the Rebellion was on a mission with the neutral Airam, in an attempt to subvert them into the service of the Rebellion. The Empire saw this as an opportunity to capture a high ranking Rebel. However the situation was sensitive, since at the time the Empire was trying to convince the neutral Airam to join the Empire to help crush the Rebellion. The Rebels feared for the disabling of their corvette, since the Airam would send out a repair vessel to repair the corvette and the Airam would think that the Rebels were weak and would not wish to join the Rebellion. When Mu Squadron came out of hyperspace to attack the Rebels from two sides, they were contacted by the Airam and told that the Rebel craft were under their protection. Mu Squadron engaged the Rebel escorts and made sure that no shots were fired at the Airam platform. It was not long after that, two Imperial ATRs came out of hyperspace. With the arrival of the ATRs it helped draw some attention off of Mu Squadron. With parts of Mu Squadron freed up, they attacked the Rebel Corvette Intrepid. Once the Rebel Corvette was disabled, ATR Omega 1 conducted a boarding operation on the vessel. With the capture of the Rebel ambassador by the Stormtroopers from the ATR, all remaining Rebel fighters hypered out of the area to save themselves from destruction. The Stormtroopers left a little surprise onboard before they detached from the Rebel corvette. With the Rebel safely in Imperial hands, the ATRs made their way to their hyperspace point, back to an Imperial base. The surprise left onboard was to go off in about a minute. With Imperial Forces leaving the area, the Airam platform launched the Muurian Transport Nee 2 to repair the Rebel corvette, moments after it was captured. The Airam craft was being escorted by 5 R-41 Starchasers, which were deployed some moments after the ATRs arrived to battle the Rebels. The Airam transport docked with the corvette some moments after the ATRs left the area and it was able to repair the Rebel corvette and it begun to return to the platform. Moments later, the Rebel corvette exploded and it took the 5 R-41 Starchasers with it. 5 more R-41 Starchasers were launched from the platform, but they too met the same fate as the other R-41s and the reason for their exploding is unknown.
