Next, to protect Delta-class DX-9 stormtrooper transports Rescue Farlander went after TIE interceptor Zeta. Staying close to the Transports to be able to provide cover. Once Alpha and Beta squadrons closed, he took out the leaders with torpedoes at range, then proceeded on to the wingman with lasers.
Once Rescue finished rescuing the prisoners, all ships jumped to hyperspace.
