    The Rebels learned that the ISD Tormentor was to take on supplies during a deep space rendezvous by their intelligence sources and decided to destroy the Star Destroyer. However, the Rebels could not afford heavy losses. The ISD Tormentor was not carrying a standard complement of starfighters and had only a handful of TIE Advanced to eliminate the Rebels when they arrived. The ISD had already had 6 cargo containers deployed, before the Imperial Bulk Freighters arrived. Moments after the battle started the first of the Bulk Freighters arrived. The Bulk Freighters came one after another, each dropping a supply container before entering hyperspace. The Rebels initially attacked with Gold and Red Squadrons, but they were later reinforced by Blue Squadron. Alpha Squadron was sorely outnumbered, it had to protect the ISD Tormentor from destruction while at the same time trying to stay alive to fulfil that duty. During the battle, the ISD launched the Heavy Lifter Bellboy to recover the cargo containers floating in front of the Star Destroyer. However during the battle, it fell under attack and it was destroyed. The Y-Wings concentrated on the ISD, with the proton torpedoes and once they got close enough they would conducted strafing runs, while the X-Wings and A-Wings kept the TIE Advanceds busy. But in doing so, the TIE Advanceds did their worst on the X-Wings and A-Wings. Near the end of the battle, the Rebels sent in two stolen Stormtrooper Transports, which fired heavy rockets at the ISD Tormentor. But those stolen transport met the same fate as did Red and Blue squadron; being destroyed. With the severity of their losses, the remaining Rebels called off their failed attacked and hypered out of the area.
