    This mission was the first time that the B-Wing was used as its primary role as a Nebulon-B Frigate killer. The Rebel force hypered into the area to engage the Nebulon-B Frigate Shrike. The Imperial frigate deployed its starfighters against the Rebels. Red Squadron led the attack against the Imperial frigate, while Gold Squadron provided escort. The Rebels believed that the Imperial frigate would try to leave the area by racing towards a Nav Buoy protected by a small minefield. A short time after the battle started, a detachment from the local System Patrol Squadron arrived. The detachment consisted of 2 CR90 Corellian Corvettes and 6 Assault Gunboats. Unfortunately even with the added fire power, it was not enough to defeat the Rebels. With this astounding loss, Imperial Military Intelligence refused to believe the initial reports. Unfortunately in the end, the Rebels were able to destroy the Nebulon-B Frigate Shrike and the detachment from the local System Patrol Squadron.
