Her most famous feat was participating in the theft of the shuttle Tydirium. Ace Azzameen, piloting the Sabra, landed at the outpost, disguised as a supplies ship. While Azzameen and his co-pilot MK-09 stalled the facility commander, the Rebel Commandos hidden on the ship sneaked out and captured the Tydirium. As they tried to escape, the Imperial forces in the area scrambled TIE/sa bombers to intercept them. With the Sabra escorting it, the Tydirium raced to get to the hyperspace point. Azzameen called in Rogue Squadron to aid in operation, and the Tydirium successfully escaped.
The Sabra was a tough, reliable ship and had a place in the hearts of the Azzameen family.
Behind the scenes
The computer models and textures for both the cinematic and the in-flight appearances of the Sabra and Selu are identical to the one used for the Millennium Falcon model, with the exception of the sensor rectenna and belly turret.

- ↑ The events portrayed in Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance take place between the conclusion of the Battle of Hoth and the destruction of the second Death Star; the family missions, which serve as a prologue and in which the Selu is destroyed, all take place before the Battle of the Bajic Shipyards, also portrayed in X-Wing Alliance, which The New Essential Chronology places in 3.5 ABY, and the Battle of Hoth is known to have taken place on 38.6.6 according to The Essential Atlas. Therefore, because the prologue missions of Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance take place between the Battle of Hoth and the Battle of the Bajic Shipyards, and the Selu is featured only in the prologue missions, the date falls somewhere between these two dates.
