    Two Rebel pilots in a daring escape were able to escape from Star's End and were able to hide aboard a freighter headed for Kashyyyk. The Empire just begun to search all spacecraft in the surrounding systems and were able to locate and disable the freighter carrying the Rebels. The Rebels had two minutes before a Stormtrooper Transport would complete its docking operation an capture the freighter carrying the Rebels. The ISD Intrepid was in the area overseeing the capture operation, and had deployed starfighters to protect the capture operation. The Rebel A-Wings hypered into the area and immediately sped towards the disabled freighter. Farlander ordered his wingman to attack the second of two TIE Interceptors that were coming towards them. Farlander targeted the leader and destroyed him with concussion missiles. The next pair of Imperial starfighters were TIE Fighters. Farlander once again ordered his wingman to attack the second TIE, while he would destroy the leader with his laser cannons. Farlander reached the transport, he settled behind it and cut his speed to zero. Farlander let off four concussion missiles into the Stormtrooper Transport and finished it off with his cannons. After which, he set out to assist his wingman with the TIE Fighter he was having trouble with. At this point the ISD Intrepid launched reinforcements, which were 4 TIE Fighters and as the Rebels headed towards them, more TIE Fighters were being launched. By now the Rebels were within the range of the ISD's guns, Farlander believed that the constant maneuvering due to the dogfighting would keep them safe from the ISD, he was wrong. His wingman was caught in the ISD's fire and was destroyed. Then 3 TIE Bombers were launched. With that Farlander broke away from the fighters switched to missiles, once he was in range he destroyed the TIE Bombers. A replacement wave of TIE Bombers were launched and they too met the same fate as did the first. At the mid point of the battle the Rebel Shuttle Drago arrived. Farlander was battling with TIE Fighters and when he destroyed a couple of them, 3 TIE Interceptors were launched and were headed towards the Rebel shuttle. Farlander was able to chase the leader and one of his wingmen down. Farlander got the last one which got passed him with his last missile. After that Farlander turned back towards the ISD and soon after a replacement wave of TIE Interceptors was launched. However Farlander had to weave to prevent the pursuing TIE Fighters from destroying him as he made his way towards the TIE Interceptors. The Rebel shuttle was able to capture the freighter and both of them hypered out of the area. While Farlander was able to prevent any harm from coming to the shuttle. He destroyed the remaining TIEs near him and hypered out of the area.
