    The Rebels sent two Y-Wings to destroy the valuable cargo freighters and space containers that were momentarily left unprotected in a staging area in the Bonadan System. The space containers in the staging area were being readied for shipment by Space Tugs. The Y-Wings arrived in the area and conducted their attack on the staging area. The area contained 7 space containers, the two Space Tugs and the BFF-1 Freighter Banthar. A short time after the battle started, the BFF-1 Freighter Deddite arrived in the area and a short time later the Lambda Shuttle Krayt arrived. Y-Wing Red 1 intercepted the shuttle and destroyed it with its laser fire. A short time after the shuttle arrived, the BFF-1 Freighter Birkby hypered into the area. Unfortunately, the Nebulon-B Frigate Enforcer arrived near the end of the battle, all it found was the debris of the cargo assets and the two Rebel Y-Wings. With the Rebel Y-Wings still in the area, the Imperial frigate launched 6 TIE Fighters. With the arrival of the Imperial frigate, the Rebel Y-Wings hypered out of the area.
