The ambush of a rebel convoy at Derra was a clash between the Alliance to Restore the Republic and Galactic Empire that occurred at the Expansion Region astronomical object Derra during the Empire's search for the rebel base after the Battle of Yavin. Although the ambush did not provide the Empire with the location of the base, it fit together with chatter about increased rebel operations in the region that had been tracked by Imperial Intelligence. Following the ambush, the Imperial search for the rebel base intensified.
