"My inquiries into this Imperial superweapon have put us in a dangerous situation. A pirate associate of ours has gone rogue, offering to sell information on the Alliance to Imperial command."
Mon Mothma[src]

A skirmish occurred at the planet Atzerri during the Galactic Civil War in which a pirate contact of the Rebel Alliance attempted to sell important Rebel military information to the Galactic Empire.

Prelude[edit | edit source]

"That's what we get for dealing with those slimeballs. Those pirates would sell their own mothers out for a few credits!"
Captain Raymus Antilles[src]

The pirate, in his personal Interceptor frigate, fled to Atzerri, where he was to rendezvous with an Imperial fleet in the system. The Imperials decided to get the information from him without pay in a violent manner. They forced the pirate to surrender himself and prepare to be boarded.

The battle[edit | edit source]

"He has arranged a meeting with the Imperials near Atzerri. We must intercept that pirate before he can transfer the detailed information of our bases to the Empire."
―Mon Mothma[src]

The Alliance Fleet entered the system. The strategy was for the larger warships to draw enemy fire, while squads of Y-wings opened fire on the Action VI transport with their ion cannons, allowing Raymus Antilles and a squad of soldiers to board.

The two fleets exchanged fire. A squadron of four Immobilizer 418 cruisers were activated, preventing the contact from escaping.

A team of Y-wings did their job of disabling the transport. Immobilized, the Sundered Heart attached to the warship and Captain Antilles and a team of Rebel soldiers boarded. They apprehended the traitor.

The fleet prepared to jump hyperspace with the criminal, but the Immobilizers remained active. Raymus led a team of Y-wings to bomb the starships. The squad of Immobilizers were destroyed, allowing the Rebels to jump to hyperspace with the hostage.

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

"The captured pirate has divulged information he's gathered on this superweapon project. Grand Moff Tarkin is overseeing that project personally. We know where Tarkin was conducting research, but we risk a frontal assault on a fortified Imperial station."
―Mon Mothma[src]

The captured pirate eventually revealed informations about the Imperial superweapon project. The Rebellion learnt that Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin was personally overseeing the project from a space station orbiting Corulag. But before attacking the station, the Rebels needed the help of smuggler Han Solo who was captured in the Corellian system.
