    The resupply group that was assigned to the Rebel Nebulon-B Frigate Rehz'nor would be heading back to a hidden Rebel Base for more provisions. Green Squadron and Rogue Squadron were deployed to protect the convoy and escort the ships to their hyperspace points. Everything was going fine for the Rebels until the Strike-class Cruiser Scylla came out of hyperspace to began to deploy its two squadrons of TIEs. The TIE Bombers headed towards the Rebel Nebulon-B Frigate Rehz'nor and started to launch their proton torpedoes, while the TIE Interceptors engaged the Rebel starfighters. The Rebels ships were making their way to their hyperspace points. The YT-1300 Outlaw that was docked to the Rebel Nebulon-B Frigate, however  joined the battle against Imperial Forces and it also launched its advanced concussion missiles at the Imperial starfighters. When it ran out of missiles, the YT-1300 was already at its hyperspace point so it made its jump into hyperspace. Moments later, the VSD Triumph came out of hyperspace and closed in on the Nebulon-B Rehz'nor and deployed its complement of two TIE Bomber Squadrons against it. The CR90 Corellian Corvettes also made it to their jump points and hypered out of the area. Meanwhile, the Strike Cruiser travelled near the Cargo Ferries hyperspace jump point targeted Cargo Ferry Gefion 3 and began to pound away at it. All three of the Cargo Ferries returned fire. It wasn't long after that Cargo Ferry Gefion 3 was destroyed and as soon as it was, Strike Cruiser Scylla jumped into hyperspace. While at the other part of the battle the TIE Bombers unleashed their proton torpedoes against the Rebel frigate, while at the same time the VSD was trading fire with the Rebel frigate. The Rebel frigate's shields eventually collapsed, but by that time all of the TIE Bombers were destroyed in a concentrated effort of the Rebel frigate and starfighters. The VSD continually pummelled fire on the frigate, however once the shields on the VSD collapsed, the VSD attempted to withdraw from the battle, while at the same time maintaining its fire on the Rebel frigate. Unfortunately, the Rebel frigate was not destroyed (the frigate did suffer heavy damage) and the VSD Triumph was destroyed before it could escape into hyperspace. The Rebel frigate was able to make its hyperspace jump along with its starfighter escort.
