    A cluster of Rebel cargo containers were located by Imperial probes, which were protected by a minefield. So the Imperial Frigate Lightning was deployed to recover anything useful. No Rebel craft were seen in the sector and it seemed that the mines were the only protection for the cargo containers. A lone TIE Interceptor was launched to clear the minefield and inspect the cargo containers so any useful cargo could be seized. Once the TIE Interceptor cleared the minefield and had identified the cargo container carrying the equipment, the Stormtrooper Transport Sigma 1 was on its way.

    After the Stormtrooper Transport had removed the equipment from the container, 3 TIE Bombers were launched to destroy the cargo containers. Moments after all of the cargo containers were destroyed, 3 Rebel Stormtrooper Transports and 3 Rebel Lambda Shuttles hypered into the area. The transports went to attack the Imperial frigate while the shuttles went to attack the TIE Interceptor. Soon after the Rebels arrived, the TIE Bombers previously deployed made it to the hanger of the Imperial frigate. A short time after 3 more TIE Bombers were launched to deal with the Rebels. In the end all of the Rebel craft were destroyed.
