At some point during the war between the First Order and the Resistance, the Resistance launched an attack on a First Order Resurgent-class Star Destroyer. The attack followed the First Order's capture of a Resistance transport.
Members of a Resistance group stationed at a base in ancient ruins on Batuu were briefed on a mission by Resistance operative Rey via a hologram projected by BB-8. The team boarded a Resistance Intersystem Transport Ship piloted by Nien Nunb and escorted by Poe Dameron in his X-wing, Black One. The transport crossed paths with a First Order Resurgent-class Star Destroyer, got caught in its tractor beam, and was brought on board. Dameron was forced to flee the scene in order to go for help.
The Resistance members were taken captive and scheduled to be interrogated before they escaped the interrogation room. During their escape, the Resistance members crossed paths with stormtroopers, All Terrain Armored Transport, and Kylo Ren. The crew of the First Order ship was taken by surprise when a large group of Resistance starfighters, bombers, frigates and other vessels jumped out of hyperspace led by Dameron in his fighter, starting the attack.
Behind the scenesEdit
The prelude and the attack itself are set to be portrayed in the Rise of the Resistance attraction at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney parks. The arrival of the Resistance ships was first seen in a Disney promotional video for the ride. Many more details were revealed during an event previewing Galaxy's Edge for the media.
