- "We'll never survive these odds. And if we vanish way out here, the Alliance will never know what happened to us. Let's bug out and head to the surface. It's our only chance."
- ―Wedge Antilles
The Rebel Alliance undertook a mission approximately two months after the Battle of Yavin to the planet Dominus III in the Outer Rim Territories to scout it out as a potential Rebel base. Upon arrival, pilots Wedge Antilles, Luke Skywalker, and Leia Organa were almost immediately ambushed by an Imperial-class Star Destroyer, which dispatched a squadron of TIE/IN interceptors to deal with the Rebels. Antilles ordered the group to the planet's surface, where Organa was shot down, taking a TIE with her in the process. She managed to climb out and kill the pilot of the downed TIE. The Imperials then sent out TIE/sa bombers to search for the Rebels, forcing them to make a hasty escape through a polar storm.
