The unit saw its first action during the First Battle of Mon Calamari. One of the first E-wing squadrons deployed in the New Republic Defense Fleet, the pilots of Knave Squadron were among the reinforcements sent from Pinnacle Base to Dac following the loss of the Star Destroyer Emancipator. Though the squadron fought bravely, several craft and pilots were lost to defensive fire from the World Devastators.
