During the battle, many stormtroopers were strafed by Rebel starfighters. One of the injured officers was Sergeant Major Beilert Valance. His platoon was struck by a proton torpedo. Despite those heavy causalities, The Imperial forces were eventually victorious.

Behind the scenesEdit
The planet where Valance was injured in Star Wars 16: The Hunter was retconned as Doniphon by author Jason Fry in the miniature scenarios The Hunt Within: Valance's Tale. Fry named the planet after Tom Doniphon, John Wayne's character in the 1962 western movie The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.
