    This planet holds an Imperial Enclave, a sprawling base that supports the Imperial Navy throughout the sector this planet is located in. Once again the Imperial traitor Kasan Moor provided the location of this Imperial base. The Rebels decided to use Y-Wings over their X-Wings due to their greater firepower and their targets of the base were its 3 key sections which were the Imperial Sensor Array, Spaceport and Garrisons. Rogue Squadron had to travel through a series of canyons to reach each of the three key sections of the base, during their travel in the canyons to get to them, Rogue Squadron had to pass through the extensive network of structures. Also during when the Rebels were flying through the canyons they did encounter some TIE Interceptor opposition as well as the extensive fixed defences. They first encountered 3 TIE Interceptors and destroyed them before they broke up into groups. The Rebels broke up into 3 groups of 3 starfighters to accomplish their mission. Rogue Squadron first located the Sensor Array which was protected by 2 Turbolasers and 1 Missile Turret and bombarded it to pieces, all the while fighting off defending TIE Interceptors. The Sensor Array consisted of 5 Scanner Dishes, all connected to a central structure, the surviving Stormtroopers did what they could against the Rebel Y-Wings. Unexpectedly an Imperial Lambda-class Shuttle arrived at the Sensor Array only to be destroyed by the Rebel Y-Wings. After its destruction Rebels then proceeded to the Imperial Spaceport to totally destroy it and most likely during this action the patrolling Scout Trooper was killed. Surviving Stormtroopers did what they could against the Rebel Y-Wings. Once again unexpectedly an Imperial Lambda-class Shuttle arrived at the Imperial Spaceport which it was destroyed by the Y-Wings. The Spaceport was defended by 6 Turbolasers, 2 Missile Turrets and TIE Interceptors, the spaceport consisted of 4 large landing pads connected to a central structure as well as other meticulous buildings. The final part of Rogue Squadron's attack was on the Imperial Garrisons, the barracks were protected by 2 Turbolasers, 1 Missile Turret and TIE Interceptors but that was not sufficient to stop the Rebel attack, all 4 barracks were destroyed by a combined force of 6 Y-Wings. And once again surviving Stormtroopers did what they could against the Rebel Y-Wings. Nearing the end of Rogue Squadron's reign of destruction on the Imperial Enclave 3 TIE Interceptors ambushed Wedge Antilles, Derek "Hobbie" Klivian and Rogue 7, Wedge Antilles made a frantic call for help to Skywalker. The TIE Interceptors  were successful in destroying and killing Rogue 7 and they were also able to shoot down Wedge Antilles, who survived to crash land his wrecked Y-Wing. The sole operational Y-Wing of the ambush was Derek "Hobbie" Klivian, who informed Skywalker that Antilles was shot down but not killed, he was able to escape the pursing TIE Interceptors. However, Wedge Antilles was not as fortunate, he was captured by Imperial Forces on Kile II to be transferred to the prisons on Kessel. With the success of the Rebel attack on the Imperial Enclave, the Imperial base was rendered inoperable, which caused a slow down in Imperial activities in this sector and it loosened the Empire's grip on the local planets.
