The Battle of Corellian system took place during the Operation Skyhook.
Background[edit | edit source]
In order to learn more about the Death Star, Alliance Special Forces managed to sabotage and disable a Delta-class DX-9 stormtrooper transport, Omicron 1, that was carrying Imperial officers assigned to the Death Star as it traveled through the Corellian system.
The battle[edit | edit source]
Soon after the mission began, several Assault Gunboats arrived. The Rebel fighters moved to intercept at the cost of three X-wings. The Hunter boarded the transport and captured the officers. However while both vessels were returning to the Inad, the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Immortal arrived and began to launch three TIEs. An Imperial transport also jumped out of hyperspace and attempted to recapture the fleeing transport. Keyan Farlander destroyed the attacking transport, and two more which arrived shortly afterward. However, both his wingmen were shot down while attempting to keep the Imperial fighters off his tail. Namrhe was killed but Omin-Oreh was rescued but severely injured.
Aftermath[edit | edit source]
As soon as both ships had boarded the Inad, the Rebels withdrew to hyperspace. The captured military advisors were unable to reveal much information except that Bevel Lemelisk was leading the design team and that some of his team had recently traveled to Coruscant for a meeting with Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin. The Alliance planned an assault on their ship.
