    Imperial Forces were on the lookout for Rebel Forces who were fleeing from their base on Hoth. Imperial Forces believed that the reason for the above normal freighter traffic in this area was related to the retreat of Rebel Forces in the aftermath of the Major Imperial Victory at the Battle of Hoth. One TIE Fighter from Alpha, Beta and Gamma squadrons were deployed to patrol around Imperial Outpost D-34. After Cadet Stele had been deployed, five freighters and two transports hypered into the area near Nav Buoy B-18. The newly arrived craft asked for permission to pass through this area. Although the freighters were closer to Stele, he chose to inspect the transports instead due to their faster rate of travel. After inspecting the transports, he then turned his attention on the freighters. Stele eventually found the freighter carrying the Rebels, after inspected the rest of the freighters he stuck close to the freighter carrying the Rebels.

    Just after the Rebels were found on the freighter, Stormtrooper Transports were launched. Shortly after Rebel shuttle group Roe arrived. Imperial YT-1300 Transports arrived shortly after, and shortly after that Imperial container transports arrived. Meanwhile, the Stormtrooper Transports were firing their ion cannons at the Freighter Onece 3 and Stele was requested to assist them. He helped bring the shields down and caused some unintentional hull damage. With the unidentified shuttles closing in, Stele chose Rebel Shuttle Roe 1 as his first target. Moments after he destroyed all of the shuttles in Roe group, another group of Rebel shuttles arrived. Imperial Forces were capture the Freighter Onece 3 a short time after the start of the mission. In the end Stele was able to destroy all of the Rebel shuttles on his own. With the Rebels captured, it was confirmed that the fleeing Rebels were trying to sneak through this sector, as expected.
