    This battle was started when the Rebels rescued they comrades and destroyed Prince Xizor's Castle was destroyed by a Thermal Detonator, Xizor made to his Skyhook and ordered the destruction of the fleeing Rebels, this proved to be his final mistake. Xizor's Navy Commander underestimated the Rebel's abilities by this time Xizor's Forces had formed a loose hemisphere around the Rebel ships making escape impossible. There was large amounts of Civilian freighter and passenger ships going to or coming from Coruscant that were tried to get out of the way. Xizor's Navy with no regard to the civilians and caused the disabling of a passenger liner while the Rebels were using the civilian ships as shields to protect themselves. At this point Rogue Squadron arrived into the fight, which improved the Rebels odds slightly. Xizor's Navy had been deployed so that only the corvettes and the fighters were engaging the Rebels, so if the Rebels escaped the net, there would be frigates standing by to take them out. Xizor's pilot were only so-so pilots which resulted in many of them being cut down by the Rebels, even so the Rebels were losing the battle. With in a few minutes the SSD Executer got around Coruscant, deployed aleast 12 TIE Fighters, where they engaged Xizor's Navy causing a panic with its commander. Lord Vader contacted Xizor on his Skyhook, where Lord Darth Vader demanded his surrender in 2 standard minutes or he would destroy Xizor's Skyhook with Xizor still on it, even if it meant that he had to risk the Emperor's displeasure. The TIE Fighters were concentrating on Xizor's ships while occasionally firing on the Rebel's X-Wings. Soon after the commander of Xizor's Navy made a frantic call to Prince Xizor for permission to surrender to the Imperial Navy, since they were outnumbered and being slaughtered at the time. The commander never got the chance to surrender, his ship was destroyed by TIE Fighters, after that the SSD Executer opened up on the Falleen's Fist shattering is to a large debris field where the Rebels used it to escape the battle however the YT-2400 got to close to a piece of debris and disappeared in a flash of light. After that the Rebels fled to a secret Rebel base.
