- "Sir, we've got multiple marks launching from the cruiser—Sir they're droid fighters! Tri-fighters, vultures, the whole Sep menagerie."

In 14 BBY, an attack was launched against the Galactic Empire's Sentinel Base. The attack began when Rampart Station reported to Sentinel base that they had come under attack by a force unknown to them, which was an insurgent cell led by former Republic Intelligence officer Berch Teller.
Sentinel Base received a message from Rampart Station reporting they were under attack. Tarkin detected that the message was a fraud and sent his Venator-class Star Destroyer, Electrum behind a nearby moon. Shortly after, a modified Providence-class dreadnought entered the system. Tarkin pulled the Venator from the moon and ordered it to engage. The Providence cruiser retreated to hyperspace shorty afterward.
