    Two Assault Gunboats were sent to escort three Imperial freighters to their hyperspace jump point which was several km away. The Rebel Nebulon-B Frigate Dodger arrived in the area moments after the arrival of the Assault Gunboats. The Rebel frigate launched fighters in waves to attack the Assault Gunboats, in an effort to draw them away from the freighters, while Rebel fighters armed with proton torpedoes would destroy the Imperial freighters.  For the next 11 minutes the Rebels tried this strategy without success. Thirteen minutes into the battle, the last of the Rebel starfighters were launched, they were a pair of B-Wings. But they too failed to destroy the Imperial freighters. In the end the freighters were able to safely make their hyperspace jump point.
