    Imperial spies learned of the secret negotiations between the Twi'leks and Rebel Alliance High Command that would take place and so informed Imperial Forces. An ambush was set up for the Twi'lek delegation as it had just left their home world. The ISD Avenger dropped out of hyperspace just long enough to hastily deploy 9 TIE Bombers before returning to hyperspace. Rebel Alliance Counter-Intelligence learned of the planned ambush and was only able to send 2 Y-Wings to thwart the Empire's ambush. The ISD Avenger hypered out of the area as the Rebels had just entered the area. The Rebel Y-Wings had come behind the TIE Bombers. TIE Bombers from Alpha and Beta stayed to engage the Rebel Y-Wings with laser cannons and concussion missiles, while Gamma went straight towards the Twi'lek Corvette. In the end the Rebels were able to destroy all the TIE Bombers before they could reach and destroy the Twi'lek Corvette, which hypered out of the area about seven minutes after the battle had started. The Twi'leks were unfortunately able to get to the summit and soon agreed to join the Rebellion.
