The Imperial Nebulon-B Frigate Priam arrived at the Imperial base needing repairs. Due to the destruction of the base, the Imperial frigate was stranded, unable to go to hyperspace. However escorts were brought in and a minefield was deployed around the frigate. Red Squadron was to destroy the escorting Imperial corvettes, while Blue Squadron would concentrate on destroying the TIE Fighters. When Farlander hypered into the area, the Imperial frigate was 9 km away and directly in front of him. There was a Corellian Corvette on the either side of the Imperial frigate and so Farlander targeted the one of the right. He then ordered his wingman to attack it as well. Blue Squadron intercepted TIE Fighter Alpha 1 and 2 on the first pass. When they destroyed Alpha 3, the last of the patrolling TIE Fighters, a replacement wave was launched from the frigate.
As soon as Farlander had a solid lock on the corvette, he fired a pair of proton torpedoes and his wingman did the same. Farlander made his way through to the corvette's blind spot, but he was a little high and took several hits before finishing off the corvette with his lasers. Farlander noticed that 6 more TIE Fighters had been launched. Blue 1 broke up in a head-on pass against two of the TIE Fighters, however the Rebel pilot was later rescued. Farlander ordered his wingman to attack the other corvette. Farlander fought his way to the target, he engaged some of the TIEs, and destroyed one. His wingman was not able to attack the corvette, since he had been engaged by several TIEs.
Sometime after the start
of the battle a Corellian Corvette and a Stormtrooper Transport came out
of hyperspace. When he was in range of the second corvette, Farlander fired
his remaining six proton torpedoes at it. Meanwhile, the Corellian Corvette
and the Stormtrooper Transport were heading directly for the Imperial frigate.
With that Farlander targeted and made an attack on the Stormtrooper Transport
and got close enough to identify it. Then he turned towards the last corvette
and ordered his wingman to assist him in attacking it. Farlander was already
in the corvette's blind spot and it did not take long to destroy the corvette.
With that the Rebels left the area.
