    The Imperial Nebulon-B2 Frigate Blue Ruin responded to a distress call from an Imperial troop convoy that was transiting through the Mylok System. And the frigate arrived there moments after the battle had started. The convoy was under minimal escort, it was being escorted by Talon Squadron. Meanwhile for the Rebels, Blue Squadron was providing starfighter cover for the rest of the Rebel fighters who were targeting the Imperial convoy. The Imperial frigate deployed Avenger Squadron in an attempt to save the convoy. Rebel Y-Wings hypered into the area early in the battle. Shortly after the battle started, Assault Gunboats from Rho Squadron arrived to reinforce, the Imperial position in the battle. The Rebels first concentrated their fire on the Imperial corvettes that made up part of the convoy and then the Bulk Freighters. In the end unfortunately, the Rebels were successful in destroying half of the Imperial convoy but they were not able to destroy the Imperial frigate as they planned to.
