- "In an effort to weaken the Empire's war machine, the Rebel Alliance takes the initiative by launching a series of strikes against Imperial military targets. It hopes to disrupt its military production and supply operation."
- ―(Battle description)
Rebel Alliance Operation: Quick Strike was a campaign fought by the Alliance to Restore the Republic against the forces of the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War. The missions depict engagements involving both Rebel attacks and Imperial reprisals, ranging from strike missions to rescue missions.
Attack on Imperial Factory DrekkerEdit
Ambush of Rebel Supply Recovery from Obran ClusterEdit
Attack on Tortali PlatformEdit
Ambush Arms Smugglers near Ytha'ac ClusterEdit
Rebel Cargo Ferry group Rongo receives a shipment of stolen Imperial munitions from Airam smugglers (two ships of CARG group Fanir) in the Ytha'ac Cluster when Imperial Gunboats, Gamma-class ATR-6 assault transports and TIE Avenger starfighters arrive to reclaim the containers.
Interdiction of Starfighter DeploymentEdit
ISD Dauntless has arrived at Deep Space Manufacturing Facility Sentinel in the Gaerboud system to receive newly produced TIE Avenger starfighters. Rebel starfighters attempt to destroy the TIE Avengers while they are being flown to the Dauntless by untrained workers. If the Rebel starfighters are unsuccessful in destroying enough "TIE Advanced" then their last option is to send in the frigate Rehz'nor which will send X-wings and Y-wings in an attempt to destroy the Dauntless.
Attack on Rebel Convoy near AthegaEdit
Rescue from Imperial Prison Ship DargonEdit
Hit and Fade on Elliirad PlatformEdit
During a starfighter attack against an Imperial Cargo Transfer Station in the Elliirad system the Rebels use Escort shuttle Upsilon with its feigned Imperial registry to deploy a demolition team to the platform in an attempt to sabotage the facility. During the attack, a number of Imperial freighters come under attack as well, namely the Cargo Ferries (CARG) Slainte, Lesyta, Rugin, Tanyay and the Modular Conveyors (CNVYR) Posi, Mhath, Luung and Weema.
Behind the scenesEdit
"Quick Strike" is a "Battle" in the Star Wars: X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter computer game, i.e. a set of eight different missions grouped together without forming a coherent campaign; Battles do not follow a storyline and the missions have no clear chronological order.
Although the occurrence of the individual missions can be considered canonical, the outcome naturally depends on the player's actions. Therefore, the actual canonical outcome of each mission is unclear. It is safe to assume that no side achieved a lasting effect (such as the destruction of a starship) over the course of the Battle.
