    The Empire was able to locate a lightly defended Rebel convoy of cruisers who were heading towards their hyperspace jump point. Imperial Forces decided to attack, however for this battle the Empire had limited resources available to do this strike against the Rebels. Rogue and Blue Squadrons were based off the MC80a Odysseus. Imperial Forces hypered quite some distance away from the Rebel convoy to initiate the attack. Rogue and Blue Squadrons were deployed to protect the Rebel convoy against Imperial Forces. The Assault Gunboats first targeted the Strike Cruiser Thor amidst the fighting and they were able to destroy it with their torpedoes. The MC40a Zeus also felt the Empire's power and it too was destroyed. During the battle the Rebels called for their Gold Squadron reinforcements to prevent the loss of their convoy and unfortunately the Rebels were ultimately successful. Imperial Forces were able to cause heavy damage to the MC80a Odysseus' shields, but were not able to destroy the Rebel ship. Compounding on that defeat was that the entire Imperial Force that was sent was destroyed.
