    The Imperial Strike Cruiser Ull had surprised the Rebel Dreadnaught Karei and it was closing rapidly on the Rebel ship to engage and destroy it before it could escape into hyperspace. Strike Cruiser Ull deployed Avenger and Talon Squadrons, while the Rebel Dreadnaught deployed Rogue and Blue Squadrons. Avenger Squadron was directed to take out Rogue Squadron while Talon Squadron torpedoed the Dreadnaught Karei. Early in the battle the Rebels called for their B-Wing reinforcements in an attempt to defeat Imperial Forces. The B-Wings went straight for the Strike Cruiser. Talon Squadron was able to inflict considerable damage on the Rebel Dreadnaught. After they fired off their load of warheads or had taken heavy damage, the survivors returned to the hanger of the Strike Cruiser Ull. Not long after the Strike Cruiser Ull was in position and was trading fire with the Rebel Dreadnaught. The fire fight did not last long. Strike Cruiser Ull was able to disable the Rebel Dreadnaught with its ion cannons after the Rebels ship's shields had collapsed. Unfortunately, Rebel starfighters were able to collapse the Strike Cruiser's shields and cause some hull damage. It was not long after that the remaining Rebel starfighters were eliminated. With Rebel starfighter opposition eliminated, all remaining Imperial starfighters concentrated their fire on the disabled Rebel Dreadnaught and destroyed it.
