- "The Imperial Star Destroyers Bombard and Crusader limped back to Ord Grovner Naval Base this week after dealing a death-blow to the arrogant and once-almighty Eyttyrmin Pirates of the Khuiumin system."
- ―TriNebulon News
Crusader supported Bombard from a distance during the battle, remaining in position to intercept the fleeing pirates. After routing the Eyttyrmin Batiiv armada, she destroyed their stronghold on the surface of Khuiumin with a barrage of concussion missiles.
Crusader was later seen in the service of Grand Admiral Thrawn during his campaign against the New Republic, and was the last known location of Zyix K'zzt in Stormtrooper Colonel TC-1289's body when Airen Cracken issued the 10,000 credit bounty for his capture.
