The Galactic Empire established a space outpost in the Vergesso Asteroids, a region near Hoth. Since Imperial presence was dangerously close, a portion of the Rebel Alliance Fleet, led by Han Solo, led a raid against the outpost.
The Acclamator-class assault ship Aggressor and the Victory-class Star Destroyer Bombard fell to concentrated fire from Y-wings and Nebulon-B escort frigates. All fire was then concentrated on the main space station and the outpost was destroyed.
The fall of the Imperial outpost ensured the safety of Echo Base, and an Alliance outpost was established in the asteroid field, which was later destroyed in the Battle of the Bajic Shipyards. Vergesso being under Alliance control allowed a raid on an Imperial outpost on Tatooine.
