    The Empire decided to attack a critical Rebel supply depot to ferret out a Rebel MC40a Light Cruiser to its destruction. To accomplish this major operation, the Imperial Nebulon-B Frigate Implacable was sent to do the job. TIE Interceptors were to clear the Rebel fighter defences while TIE Bombers were to attack the Rebel platform. The Rebel platform was defended by a number of Z-75 Headhunters and the IPV-1 Derdmin. Soon after Imperial Forces arrived, the YT-1300 Transport Needoc decided to leave the platform and vacate the area. The YT-1300 however, was shot down before it could escape into hyperspace. Then the TIE Interceptors turned their attentions on the Z-95 Headhunters and the IPV-1.

    The MC40a Ardent arrived after the shields of the Rebel platform had collapsed and thus it was too far late to save it. The Rebel fighters carrying proton torpedoes made the Imperial frigate their target, however the TIE Interceptors prevented the Rebel fighters from destroying their intended target. The Rebel vessel had been snared in taking the bait in this Imperial ambush. With the platform destroyed, the TIE Bombers turned their attention on the newly arrived Rebel vessel, while the TIE Interceptors provided fighter cover. A short time after the Rebel vessel took the bait a pair of A-Wings had hypered in. But those A-Wings along with the MC40a and all of the remaining Rebel fighters in the area shared the same fate. And that sealed fate was their destruction.
