The Skirmish on Tatooine was a skirmish between the Alliance to Restore the Republic and the Galactic Empire that occurred during the Galactic Civil War. The rebel force was trying to draw attention away from R2-D2 who was trying to deliver the Death Star plans to the rebel base in Yavin 4.
After escaping an Imperial attack, fifty Rebel soldiers landed on Tatooine via life pods near a Tusken Raider camp. They then held off several Imperial soldiers looking for the Death Star plans. As this occurred, a Rebel Blockade Runner engaged a Star Destroyer outside the atmosphere of Tatooine, with the Star Destroyer eventually destroying the Blockade Runner.
Eventually, a flight of X-Wings flew down and proceeded to attack the fleeing Stormtroopers. As this happened, the Star Destroyer ends up crashing down onto the planet as twenty of the fifty Rebels escape.
