When the CR90 corvette group Ethar was captured by the Galactic Empire near Despayre, the Alliance mounted a rescue attempt. The operation comprised three waves. First, three X-wings from Red Squadron, flown by Keyan Farlander, Casal Marskan and Horodi, arrived to engage the Gunboats. Three minutes later, two groups of three Y-wings from Blue and Gold squadrons arrived and attempted to disable the corvettes. Six minutes after the arrival of the Y-wings, Rogue group arrived to recapture the corvettes.
