The Imperial Nebulon-B Frigate
Malevolent encountered the Rebel Nebulon-B Frigate Endeavor,
which set the stage for the duel between both the Imperial and Rebel frigates.
Both the frigates launched their complements of starfighters to eliminate
each other. Alpha Squadron concentrated their attacks on Gold Squadron,
while Beta Squadron being escorted by Gamma Squadron would torpedo the
Rebel frigate. For the Rebels Blue Squadron targeted Beta Squadron, while
Gold Squadron being escorted by Green Squadron would torpedo the Imperial
frigate. However, the Empire took the upper hand and the battle was going
in favour for the Empire. So in the mid point of the battle, the Rebels
called for reinforcements, which were from Rogue Squadron. The X-Wings
from Rogue Squadron targeted the frigate and began to let lose with their
proton torpedoes, while their A-Wings engaged the Imperial starfighters.
However, even with the arrival of Rogue Squadron was not enough to stop
and defeat Imperial Forces that day. Imperial Forces were able to destroy
all of the Rebel fighters in the area. With its complement destroyed, the
Rebel Nebulon-B Frigate Endeavor began its retreat out of the area.
But Imperial Forces would not let the Rebel ship escape and a short time
later the Rebel frigate was destroyed. The Emperor's Eagles Squadron was
nearby for reinforcements, but it was not called for during the battle.
The Imperial Nebulon-B Frigate Malevolent suffered heavy damage
to its shields during the battle. And throughout the entire battle, neither
of the Nebulon-Bs engaged each other.
