    A Rebel probe detected seemingly abandoned Imperial space containers in a quiet sector. A single A-Wing was sent out to determine the contents of the space containers. Unfortunately, Imperial Forces sprung the trap on this recon fighter and not on a Rebel recovery team. In doing so, the Rebel was alerted of the now failed trap and was able to destroy all of the TIE Fighters hidden among the cargo containers. The trap was sprung after the Rebel scanned one of the space containers containing TIE Fighters. During the ensuing attack by the TIE Fighters, the Rebel was able to complete his scans of the space containers. Unfortunately he was able to destroy all of the TIE Fighters that were in the area. However, before he left the Imperial Nebulon-B Frigate Merciless appeared and deployed its starfighters. Unfortunately the Rebel was able to fight his way through the fighters and escape.
