In another part of the galaxy, a minor skirmish occurred between the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire. Rebel Heroes Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles were each accompanying a rookie X-Wing pilot on training exercises with Kyle Katarn and the Moldy Crow and Arvel Crynyd in his A-Wing. Little did they know that their flight plan would take them directly into a trap that was organized by Darth Vader (with a Black Squadron escort) with the assistance of Boba Fett and Captain Kagi in his Lambda Shuttle.
The sides fell into their respective formations and the battle commenced. For once the majority of the speed was on the Rebels side, and they took full advantage to close the distance quickly. Boba Fett’s Firespray and the Lambda Shuttle began a pincer motion that would soon prove extremely helpful. The Rebels, unaccustomed to dealing with such large opponant ships, had issues navigating in close quarters.
Overall the skirmish was successful for both sides. The Imperials were able to destroy the Moldy Crow and eliminate the criminal Kyle Katarn. The Rebels destroyed the Imperial Lambda shuttle with Captain Kagi aboard. The rest of the combatants were able to limp back to their respective bases to repair, recover, and regale their compatriots with their stories of bravery (except for Darth Vader…he just sulked).
