    The Freighter Phoenix which was captured by the Rebels was waiting for the MC80a Maximus. Since the MC80a Maximus was delayed, Red 1 was deployed to watch over the captured freighter. The rendezvous was in a quiet sector, that was far away from Imperial interests. The ISD Intrepid was already at the rendezvous point before Farlander arrived. It was a little over 13 km away and it launched a pair of TIE Interceptors and a pair of TIE Bombers. When Farlander came out of hyperspace he was under immediate attack from the TIEs. The ISD Intrepid had already begun to launch additional TIEs. Farlander was able to destroy his attackers. A soon as he destroyed his last attacker, a TIE Bomber, a second wave of them were launched.

    The ISD launched the TIEs in ones and twos. Only once did a TIE get by Farlander. However Farlander was able to get him by speeding after the TIE and taking it out with a concussion missile. However the TIE was able to make one attack run on the BFF-1 Freighter Phoenix. After that the ISD ceased to launch TIEs. Then, when the MC80a Maximus arrived with the BFF-1 Freighter Ojai, the ISD hypered out of the area. With the ISD gone, the MC80a deployed Blue Squadron, while the Freighter Ojai docked with the Freighter Phoenix. Once the transfer operation was complete the Freighter Ojai hypered out of the area. Farlander did not have any back up in this battle, since the Rebels did not anticipate a very response from the Empire.
