Pelican was a group of 6 Heavy Lifters used by the Rebel Alliance. When XQ2 Platform I.N. Depot was disabled by Y-wings, Pelican then arrived to steel the containers from the Depot thinkning that the Rebel fighters had cleared up the TIE fighters at the location. Instead, the lifters were all destroyed by the TIE fighters reinforced by the Imperial-class Star destroyer Colossus before they could escape to Hyperspace with the supplies.

The event was recorded and recreated in the Combat chamber to train Imperial pilots, one of them was Maarek Stele.
