Rebel Loses : Most likely heavy starfighters losses suffered. Green Squadron most likely took the bulk of the Rebel starfighter losses, since the Rebels feared the Green Squadron could be destroyed so they had B-Wings from Red Squadron standing by.

    The MC80a Liberty conducted a hit and run on the Imperial Fleet in order to draw off of the Imperial Fleet's escorts. With the Empire in hot pursuit the Rebels set an ambush up at the MC80a Liberty's exit point. Both Rogue and Green Squadrons were already deployed in the system waiting for the MC80a Liberty's arrival. The Rebels did not have to wait long, soon after the MC80a Liberty came out of hyperspace, so did the Imperial pursuers. The Star Destroyers were some distance behind the MC80a Liberty but they flanked both sides of the Rebel ship, with the Interdictor Cruiser Compellor in the centre of the Imperial Formation but it quite far behind both Star Destroyers. The ISDs deployed their TIEs while the Interdictor Compellor withheld its complement from the battle, but prevented all ships in the area from escaping into hyperspace. All the Rebel X-Wings and B-Wings targeted the closest ISD, which was the ISD Conqueror, while the A-Wings took the role as fighter interceptors. After the first barrage, the X-Wings then turned their attention on the Imperial starfighters. The TIE Bombers concentrated their attacks on the MC80a Liberty. The MC40a Condor arrived early in the battle. During the battle Assault Gunboats also hypered into the area to attack the MC80a. But both the TIE Bombers and the Assault Gunboats were unable to cause significant damage to the MC80a. The ISD Conqueror shield's eventually collapsed under a barrage of proton torpedoes and laser cannons. Once the shields dropped, the vessel was disabled with ion cannons and was destroyed by even more proton torpedoes and laser cannon fighter. Late in the battle TIE Advanced from Avenger Squadron hypered into assist in the elimination of Rebel starfighters. With the ISD Conqueror destroyed all the Rebel Forces in battle concentrated their fire on the ISD Nemesis. The MC80a Liberty and the MC40a Condor concentrated their fire upon the Star Destroyer, as well as the B-Wings while the X-Wings mostly concentrated on the Imperial starfighters as well as the A-Wings. The Rebels were also able to cause the shields of the ISD Nemesis to collapse as well and once it did, the Rebels disabled the Star Destroyer and finished it off. Soon after all of the Imperial starfighters in the area were destroyed. After witnessing this diabolical, Captain Rigell ordered the Interdictor Cruiser Compellor to withdraw from the area. The Interdictor took a few hits, but it escaped before the Rebels could effectively engage the cruiser. The Rebels wanted to track down the Interdictor Cruiser Compellor since it had solid evidence of the strength of Rebel forces in this sector.
