History[edit | edit source]
The Quantum Storm was the first Rebel transport to escape the Imperial blockade at the Battle of Hoth. It successfully bypassed the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Tyrant, thanks to the well-timed shots of Echo Base's v-150 ion cannon issued by Toryn Farr.
As the first transport to evacuate the planet, the Quantum Storm carried non-combatant personnel of Echo Base. Imperial defector and Governor Everi Chalis was scheduled to depart on the transport, but stayed behind to help an injured Captain Micha Evon.
