The Rescue of Sullustan Tech Staff took place during the early years of the Galactic Civil War.
Imperial stormtroopers kidnapped a Sullustan technical staff, in what appeared to have been part of Operation Strike Fear, possible planned invasion of Sullust. The Rebel Alliance mounted a rescue mission to both return the staff and convince the Sullustans of the intentions of the Empire. Alliance has also hoped that this rescue will cause Sullustans to join the Rebel Alliance.
Keyan Farlander successfully identified and disabled the transports carrying the tech staff personnel. Next, to protect Delta-class DX-9 stormtrooper transports Rescue Farlander went after TIE interceptor Zeta. Staying close to the Transports to be able to provide cover. Once Alpha and Beta squadrons closed, he took out the leaders with torpedoes at range, then proceeded on to the wingmen with lasers.
Once Rescue finished rescuing the prisoners, all ships jumped to hyperspace.
In the aftermath of the operation, Sullustans have become sympathetic towards the Rebel Alliance and started their negotiations to join the Rebel Alliance.
