    When the Rebels commenced their attack on an Imperial convoy in the Dellalt System, the Rebels were greeted with an unexpected surprise from a treacherous crew of the escorting corvette. Blue Squadron reported back to their Rebel comrades informing them that the crew of the escorting Imperial corvette wished to defect. Rebel Intelligence believed that the Imperial convoy was part of a re-supply operation in preparation for a major Imperial offensive in this sector. It was hoped by Rebel Intelligence by capturing the crew of the corvette, that they would learn more about this intended campaign. The traitors stopped their corvette and dropped their shields. Red Squadron was sent in to finish off the Imperial freighters in the convoy while Blue Squadron watched over the corvette. When Farlander came out of hyperspace, he directed all of his laser energy to his shields and redirected all cannon power to the engines. The nearest two freighters (Esorp and Orcim) already had their shields down and Blastwell went after them, while Farlander went after a freighter (Arreis) that was 8 km away.

    All of the Imperial freighters were frantically racing to their hyperspace points. As soon as Blastwell destroyed the two freighters, he hypered out of the area. During this the Rebel Stormtrooper Transport hypered into the area, and made its way towards the Imperial Corvette Bixby. Farlander switched to proton torpedoes and when he was in range he let off two pairs of torpedoes on the BFF-1 Freighter Arreis, he then reset his recharge rates for his fighter and finished off the freighter with his laser cannons on duel fire mode. He then set his sights on the Freighter Nigiro which was 4 km away and repeated the previous tactic, but this time only using a pair of torpedoes. The Freighter Murtceps was the only freighter in the convoy that was able to escape destruction. Soon after the Freighter Nigiro's destruction, the Rebel transport was able to capture the Imperial corvette that defected.
