The bridge on the Dominator was suddenly a flurry of activity. "Sir! Two ships just came out of hyperspace on the edge of the system. A Nebulon B and a Corvette - their codes aren't recognized - most likely Rebel scum!"
Tarkin knew that two ships were no match for his patrol force of two Victory II class Star Destroyers. "Launch fighters, and bring us about." No sooner had the hangar bays begun spewing forth swarms of TIE fighters, two more vessels and six fighter squadrons abruptly exited hyperspace directly in front of the Imperial vessels, taking them by surprise! It was an ambush! But Tarkin was not new at this, and he would beat the Rebels at their own game.
|The Rebel Fleet (296) ||The Imperial Fleet (300) |
A commanding victory for the Imperials, as the weight of firepower two Victory IIs can bring is demonstrated beautifully.
