Following the Alliance's defeat at Hoth, the Defiance Task Force led by Admiral Nammo needed to reach the rest of the Alliance fleet without being detected or destroyed by the Corrupter Task Force. As a first step, Nammo planned to destroy an Imperial supply convoy led by the Strike cruiser Scythe so the Empire's forces would be stretched thin by the movements of the Defiance and her task force.
Hyperspacing to the convoy's location, Y-wing group Green moved to attack the Veltnor convoy ships with proton torpedos. X-wing group Red, including Ace Azzameen, provided cover, engaging the Scythe's TIE fighters. Both groups were successful, and after finishing off the convoy the Rebels returned to the Defiance.
The attack on the convoy resulted in a greater local Imperial focus on protecting convoys and remote units rather than actively searching for the Rebels. Admiral Nammo, meanwhile, organized a recon mission to determine what exactly the Defiance group was up against.
Behind the scenesEdit
While the destruction of the convoy is assured, the Scythe itself can either survive, be driven off, or be destroyed depending on player actions.
