    As soon as the Imperial Nebulon-B Frigate Fogger came out of hyperspace, the Imperial frigate was surprised to learn that Outpost D-34 had been captured by the Rebels. During the Empire's assault on the Mugaari depot, the Rebels launched a raid on the outpost. Unfortunately the Imperial outpost was not able to repel the Rebel raiders. And with that the Rebels and the Muggari took it upon themselves to loot the now captured Imperial outpost for arms and equipment. Imperial Intelligence believed that the Mugaari Pirates sold the Rebels a squadron of new Escort Shuttles that they had stolen from Cygnus Spaceworks.

    When Stele was launching from the Imperial frigate, he was witness to the Imperial frigate blazing away at two incoming Rebel Escort Shuttles, which were quickly destroyed. Stele located his nearest target, it was a Rebel Stormtrooper Transport. The Rebel craft was attempting to attack the Imperial frigate. With that, he ordered his wingman to attack it. Three Mugaari Escort Shuttles appeared. X-Wings were arriving from another angle of the battle, and were launching proton torpedoes at the Imperial frigate. Stele tried to order his wingman to attack the X-Wings, but he learned that his wingman had been killed. So, Stele went after the X-Wings himself.

    Meanwhile, Imperial Stormtrooper Transport Sigma was in the process of retaking the Imperial platform. Stele was able to quickly destroy the X-Wings and Y-Wings. He used his concussion missiles on the A-Wings which had appeared in the battle. Using his remaining missiles, Stele fired them at the Container Transport Gopher after he inspected it and the Escort Shuttles that still remained in the area. Once Container Transport Gopher was scanned, Stormtrooper Transport group Omega arrived to disable and capture the fleeing Rebel vessel before it could escape.
