The Skirmish on Spindrift was a brief battle that was part of Operation Earplug.
Spindrift Station was caught completely unprepared, having merely been trained to repel attacks by Rebel ships. Four Rebel-controlled TIE/LN starfighters were let in through the base's defenses and proceeded with razing the entire facility, from their communications hub to their main defense battery.
As devastating as the attack was, the base personnel suffered few casualties and all remaining staff were taken aboard a troop transport as POWs.
A coded cartograph module containing the wanted coordinates was retrieved from the ruins and with the mission successfully accomplished, the Rebels left Spindrift Station to burn to the ground.
