This retaliatory attack
was done because of the Imperial Blockade of Chandrila. The Imperial traitor
Kasan Moor engineered this assault on an Imperial Volcano Base at Sullust.
General Carlist Rieekan briefed Kasan Moor on the situation. The location
of this Imperial Volcano Base was provided to the Rebels by Bothan spies.
This Imperial Base was a crucial link to the rest of the Sullust System
for the Galactic Empire. This base well hidden in a volcano and was also
well protected. The volcano was being used to power a geothermal generator
which is regulated by a shielded central capacitor. 12 Transmitters were
feeding the energy to the capacitor, destroying all of the transmitters
would cause the shield protecting the capacitor to drop. Skywalker had
Kasan Moor lead this attack against the Empire. Both of them flew in Y-Wings.
The X-Wings engaged the defending TIE Interceptors while the Y-Wings targeted
and destroyed the transmitters and defences. When the shield protecting
the capacitor dropped, Skywalker ordered all of the starfighters from Rogue
Squadron to concentrate their fire on the now exposed and vulnerable capacitor.
After the capacitor was destroyed Rogue Squadron had to leave the volcano
before it would destabilize and destroy them with it. However this battle
was a diversion used by Moff Seerdon so he could secretly capture Thyferra,
General Rieekan informed Rogue Squadron of the news of their failure in
realizing that they had been used by Moff Seerdon to accomplish his ultimate
goal, the capturing of Thyferra.
