After the Ballarat took severe damage from Yevethan proton torpedoes, the Mandjur was commanded to cover the withdrawal of the Endurance-class fleet carrier. However, the Mandjur was heavily damaged before it could even launch half of its interceptors, and lost all of its engines and deflector shields within a few Yevethan barrages.
Second Lieutenant Plat Mallar was the pilot of a fleet shuttle that was ordered to recover the wounded and the killed pilots of the Mandjur. Sensing the fragility of the Republic's position, Mallar took the personal X-wing starfighter of his incapacitated commanding officer, Captain Tegett, and entered the fray. He engaged multiple waves of Yevethan trifoil fighters before one went on a suicide run on the heavily damaged Mandjur. Mallar eventually rammed a trifoil fighter with his X-wing, killing himself and the Yevethan pilot, but saving the Mandjur.
