    The Rebels and the Airam were putting the final touches on the Modified Strike Cruiser, but they needed more time and they also needed to keep the existence of the Rebels own version of the Imperial Interdictor a secret from the Empire. Rogue and Green Squadrons were deployed to protect the area. The Lambda Shuttle Electro was launched from the Factory Gallofree to dock with the Modified Strike Cruiser Peregrine to get the vessel operational. As expected a larger Imperial Force arrived near the factory. Escort Transports were the first to arrive and to start the attack. They targeted the Interdictor Cruiser and let off their load of proton torpedoes to take down the shields of the vessel and then they switched to ion cannons to attempt to disable the vessel. Both Rogue and Green Squadron went after the Escort Transports. A few moments after, the Escort Carrier Tyrant arrived and it let loose its TIEs. Once the remaining Escort Transports were destroyed, the ATRs arrived to finish the work of the Escort Transports and to capture the Interdictor. The Modified Strike Cruiser Peregrine attempted to get its gravity wells operational, but still the gravity wells still would not work. However, the ATRs too were also destroyed before they could accomplish what they set out to do. While this was happening, the TIE Bombers were targeting the Modified Strike Cruiser to destroy it and the TIE Interceptors used their concussion missiles against the Rebel starfighters that they were combating against. While all of this was going on, the shuttle Electro was able to get the Modified Strike Cruiser operational, which after completing that task it returned to the factory. The TIE Bombers were not successful in their bombing runs to destroy the Rebel vessel. Meanwhile, Green Squadron concentrate their fire power on the Escort Carrier Tyrant. The battle ensued for some time until the Rebels destroyed the Escort Carrier and the remaining Imperial starfighters. The Modified Strike Cruiser Peregrine safely made it out of the area into hyperspace and was en route to rendezvous with the MC80a Liberty for its field test. With the Rebels' version of the Interdictor safely away, phase one of Rebel High Command's plan was now complete and the next Imperial Force that came to the factory was in for an unfortunate surprise.
