    The Rebels learned of the rendezvous between Bulk Freighter Mharsup and Modified Corvette Group Hashim, where the freighter would transfer the TIE Defender prototypes. The Modified Corvettes were to deliver the TIE Defenders to Admiral Thrawn. The Emperor directed Admiral Thrawn to ensure these starfighters are taken to a secret location where they would be safe. The rendezvous point was a site of a recent Rebel attack. TIE Defender Delta 1 was flying escort for freighter Mharsup and shuttle G'nabgib, which were waiting for the corvettes to arrive with their Assault Gunboat escorts. Without warning, 6 Rebel A-Wings hypered into the area in different locations and distances from each other. TIE Defender Delta 1 was ordered to intercept the A-Wings. After destroying several of the A-Wings, 4 B-Wings hypered into the area quite some distance away. Stele was on his way to intercept the B-Wings, before they could attack and disable the freighter. While this was happening, the Rebel Stormtrooper Transport group Storm escorted by 3 X-Wings arrived to capture the freighter and its contents. Stele was able to destroy the B-Wings and A-Wings. The Rebels never got the chance to disable the freighter since Maarek Stele was able to keep the transports and their escorts occupied, while at the same time destroying them. Around the time when TIE Defender Delta 1 was finishing off the last of the Rebel raiders, Modified Corvette group Hashim arrived with their Assault Gunboat escorts. Soon after, 6 Rebel Y-Wings came out of hyperspace to destroy the convoy, Y-Wing Gold 1 fired Proton Torpedoes at a corvette but did not destroy it. The Assault Gunboats and the TIE Defender engaged and destroyed the Y-Wings with ease. During the fighting, TIE Defender prototypes 11 and 12 were launched and freighter Mharsup hypered out of the area. Nearing the doomed fate of the Y-Wings, the Rebel Nebulon-B Frigate Hunu hypered into the area to engage Imperial Forces. TIE Defender prototype 11 entered modified corvette Hashim 1 and TIE Defender prototype entered modified corvette Hashim 2. The Frigate let lose 8 Z-95 Headhunters in an attempt to destroy the escorting Imperial Forces, however, the Z-95s were destroyed along with the Rebel Frigate. Shuttle G'nabgib stayed with the modified corvettes and with the Rebels defeated, Maarek Stele piloted TIE Defender Delta 1 into the hanger of modified corvette Hashim 3.
