The ersatz Nartissteu arrived at the Sluis Van Shipyards before the rest of the Imperial fleet with apparent damage and a seemingly empty cargo bay. The ship had reported to Sluis Control that it had been damaged in a pirate attack that caused them to dump all their cargo. The ship was then to await repairs.
Commander Wedge Antilles of Rogue Squadron and Captain Afyon, both aboard the New Republic ship Larkhess noticed that something was strange about the ship and Rogue Squadron launched. The X-Wing pilots were first on the scene when the Nartissteu self-destructed, allowing the TIEs hidden in her hold to launch their surprise attack and beginning the Battle of Sluis Van.
