    The ISD Rage and the Interdictor Cruiser Compellor were ordered to set up an inspection ambush near a frequently travelled hyperspace transit point at the edge of the Blair Cluster. This check point was set up to catch retreating Rebels since Imperial Forces under the command of Admiral Senn who ordered the pursuit of retreating Rebels in this neutral territory. The TIE Fighters and TIE Bombers stayed close to the capital ships to protect them from any counterattacks. Avenger Squadron was deployed to force ships that were pulled into realspace by the Interdictor's gravity wells to surrender. The first vessel to be pulled into realspace was the shuttle Ellichon, the shuttle tried to make a run for the asteroid cluster but it did not succeed. Avenger Squadron was cleared to open fire upon the vessel, after taking a few hits the shuttle surrendered and one Stormtrooper Transport was deployed to board the craft. Soon after the appearance of the first shuttle, came the transport Redeye which was again forced into surrender. Another Stormtrooper Transport was launched to board the craft. Soon after the YT-1300 Squit was pulled into the area and once again it was forced into surrender with the threat of destruction by Avenger Squadron. And yet again another Stormtrooper Transport was launched to board the transport. Airam criminals were not the only catch of the day, Interdictor Compellor was able to pull the Rebel Medium Transport Gilder and its escort from the safety of hyperspace. Avenger Squadron responded immediately. The Rebel X-Wings conducted their attack on the recently launched Stormtrooper transport Sigma 4, but they did not succeed in destroying the transport. The Rebel Medium Transport also fell to the same fate as the other vessels that were pulled into the area. Without warning an Airam Pirate group entered into the area with hostile intent. TIE Bombers were sent to deal with the Assassin-class Corvettes first, while Avenger Squadron and the TIE Fighters dealt with the T-Wings. The Dreadnaught was too far away to engage any of the Imperial capital ships, but it deployed its R-41 Starchaser squadron and started to head towards the ISD Rage to engage it. The R-41 Starchasers targeted the Interdictor Compellor and let of volleys of advanced proton torpedoes at their target, but they did not cause any serious damage to the Imperial vessel. Once the Modified Corvettes were destroyed, the TIE Bombers turned their attention on the pirate Dreadnaught. The T-Wings nor the R-41 Starchasers would survive the battle against Imperial Forces and the Dreadnaught Anat also met the same fate that day due to the efforts of Imperial TIE Bombers. After the conclusion of the battle, all the ships that surrendered were destroyed after everyone aboard those vessels were captured. Everyone of the vessels stopped either had wanted criminals and/or illicit cargo aboard. The prisoners captured would be interrogated to determine where should the Empire strike next.
