The Battle of Yerej was a space battle fought between the Alliance to Restore the Republic and the Galactic Empire when the Nebulon-B frigate Meteor and its complement of snubfighters attacked the Imperial factory Drekker, a crystal-manufacturing facility in the Yerej system.
The Victory-class Star Destroyer Inexorable responded to the attack on the space factory, launching TIE/sa bombers to assault the Meteor and TIE/IN interceptors to escort the strike force upon entering the system. The factory Drekker deployed its own fighter screen, consisting of two full flight groups of TIE/LN starfighters. Planning for difficulty, the Imperials arranged that if the battle shifted to the Rebels' advantage, then two flight groups of Delta-class DX-9 stormtrooper transports could enter the battle and launch proton torpedoes at the Meteor.
