    This engage between the Imperial Navy and Rebel Alliance happened as the first part of Operation Strike Fear. The Rebel fleet was evacuating all Rebel forces from their secret base on Briggia after Rebel High Command determining that the base would be a target to Operation Strike Fear. Lieutenant Farlander was charged with protecting the Rebel shuttles, while the Y-Wing escorts the shuttles as well. The Rebel starfighters hypered to the area to protect the evacuation of Rebel ships, shortly after their arrival the Rebel Nebulon-B Frigate Fugazi jumped into hyperspace. By the time Farlander had reached the shuttles, the ISD Invincible dropped out of hyperspace and caught the Rebel Transports Rhoon 1, 2 and 3, as well as the CR-90 Mahan with their shields down. Once those Rebel ships were quickly destroyed, the ISD Invincible launched several TIE Fighters and Bombers, Farlander and his comrades eliminated them and any Imperial starfighters that got passed Farlander were hit by his Proton Torpedoes. Some of the TIE Fighters and TIE Bombers were targeting the Rebel shuttles. In the end the Rebel starfighters, CR-90 Sonnel and the 3 Rebel shuttles were able to escape from the ISD Invincible's grasp.
