Rebel Intelligence discovered that a stolen freighter full of the Empire's latest model of Comm Sats had been stolen from an Imperial Base in the Orron III System. The area is filled with Imperial ships and the ISD Intrepid was on patrol in this area. Rebel Intelligence Command had become very worried about the mysterious Imperial military project, since they are unable to find anything out about this project which was using such a large portion of the Empire's resources. However, Rebel High Command devised a clever plan to tap into the Empire's most secure communication network. The first step was to capture the freighter's stolen cargo. So Red 1 was sent in. Farlander went after the nearest Stormtrooper Transport and as he closed to firing range, the Stormtrooper Transport started firing its ion cannons at the freighter. Farlander passed right by two of the escorting Imperial shuttles as he got a lock and fired his proton torpedoes. He switched back to lasers and finished off the transport.
As soon as the transport exploded, another dropped out of hyperspace. Farlander in response fired a couple of proton torpedoes at the freighter. Farlander targeted the other Stormtrooper Transport and tried to use the same tactic he used to destroy the previous transport. However, while he was trying to get a lock he was being fired upon by the escorting Imperial shuttles, who were behind him. Farlander was able to shake off the pursuers long enough to allow him to finish off the transport he was targeting. And once again a replacement hypered into to the area almost immediately. After he destroyed the transport, he turned his attention on the pursuing shuttles. In the end he was able to eliminate most of them. The Freighter Phoenix had been disabled by this time and the Rebel Shuttle Wilsey had arrived to capture the vessel. It took a few minutes for the Rebel shuttle to capture the freighter, during this Farlander patrolled the area (after he destroyed all remaining Imperial vessels in the area).
Just after the Rebel shuttle
made it into hyperspace the ISD Intrepid dropped out of hyperspace.
And launched 3 TIE Fighters, with that Farlander sped off at maximum speed
to intercept. As he did so 3 TIE Bombers were launched. Unfortunately Farlander
was able to destroy two of the TIE Fighters on a head-on pass as he sped
towards the TIE Bombers. With the destruction of those TIE Fighters, brought
about a replacement wave of them. Farlander was able to eliminate the TIE
Bombers using his proton torpedoes and lasers, all the while ignoring the
TIE Fighters. With the destruction of the TIE Bombers, brought about a
replacement wave of them. Until the freighter escape safely into hyperspace,
Farlander had to attack the TIE Bombers and then had keep after the TIEs.
After the freighter had hypered out, Farlander destroyed the fighters attacking
him so he could make his escape, however before he left he fired a proton
torpedo at the ISD Intrepid.
