The warship was to receive a new hyperdrive system from the BFF-1 bulk freighter Rasvin. During that time it had to power down to allow the freighter to board. Before the operation commenced the Rebel Alliance sent a strike force, consisting of A-wings, B-Wings, X-wings and Y-wings, two shuttles Silver, two Delta-class DX-9 stormtrooper transports Logan and two corvettes Glaser and Chiller attacked the Laantis knowing it would be vulnerable during the refit. However, the attack failed as the frigate was defended not just by TIE Fighters, Bombers and Interceptors, it was also defended by TIE Advanced starfighters after the attack was defeated the Laantis successfully received its new hyperdrive.
