During the Galactic Civil War in 5 ABY, General Hera Syndulla and her New Republic forces aboard the Star Destroyer Deliverance, continued their hunt for the 204th Imperial Fighter Wing. The comm burst her forces were following had ceased and the Deliverance resumed its system-by-system search. Within hours, Syndulla's forces had found the fighter wing and the bulk freighter Yadeez. After the Deliverance emerged from hyperspace at maximum velocity with its tractor beam primed, it managed to lock on to the Yadeez from a distance. The starfighter squadrons deployed and remained close, to protect the tractor beam projector under the cover of the Star Destroyer's point-defense weaponry. Two TIEs managed to break through, although unable to do any damage with their cannons, however one TIE impacted the beam projector in a suicide run and obliterated it, killing three crew members aboard the Deliverance. The 204th escaped and jumped to lightspeed.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
- Victory's Price (First mentioned)
Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- Victory's Price
- Victory's Price begins eleven months after the Battle of Endor, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 4 ABY. The Battle of Jakku, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas states takes place in 5 ABY, appears late into the novel. Additionally, Before the Awakening states that Kes Dameron and Shara Bey moved to Yavin 4 around six months after the Battle of Endor, and Galactic Atlas dates their move to 5 ABY. Therefore, Victory's Price must be set in 5 ABY. Furthermore, the third encounter with the Yadeez must also be set in 5 ABY.
