Prior to the liberation of Coruscant, Champion Six was patrolling the Pyria system as the wingmate of Champion Five and Corran Horn, flying as Rogue Nine, when they challenged the starship Vengeance Derra IV as it was entering the system. The cruiser soon proved itself a part of Warlord Zsinj's forces when it opened fire on the three starfighters and deployed a small group of TIE/LN starfighters.
After a short dogfight, the cruiser retreated leaving its entire complement of four TIE fighters and two TIE/sa bombers dead or captured. Champion Six was able to save Horn's life by killing the TIE fighter that had settled in behind him with a proton torpedo as Horn blasted the enemy craft that was pursuing Champion Five.
