A Rebel operative holds a high-ranking Moff captive in an escape pod. The Rebels send a rescue squad of A-wings and B-wings, the Imperials intercept the rescue attempt.
Mission Setup[edit | edit source]
Rebel: 100 squad points; at least one A-Wing and one B-wing; at least one of those must be a Unique Pilot

The Imperial player places one of the six asteroid tokens into the asteroid setup area (not within Range 3 of the Imperial edge and the neutral edges of the play area, not within Range 1 of the Rebel edge of the play area). Then, the Rebel player chooses one of the remaining asteroid tokens and places it into the setup area. The players continue to alternate until all six tokens have been places. Asteroids cannot be placed within Range 1 of any other asteroid. The Rebel player then places the escape pod token within Range 2 of the Imperial edge and equidistant from the 2 neutral edges.

At least 25 points worth of ships must be deployed in each deployment zone.
