History

In 16 BBY, a secret supply run by a group of Republic Loyalists insurgents encounters a small imperial battle group orbiting Imdaar. After refusing to transmit the fitting clearance codes, the rebel ships are taken under fire by the Venator-class Star Destroyer Indomitable. Its escort consists of two Arquitens-class light cruisers. The rebel's capital ship, a brand new Assault Frigate, repeats fire and deploys its starfighters and bombers, which take out one of the light cruisers.

Soon, however, the rebel squadron, overwhelmed by the Empire's numbers of V-wings and TIE fighters, is forced to retreat back to their hangars. After their fighter advantage is lost, the rebels only barely manage to jump into hyperspace to escape the Empire.

The Aftermath

In the aftermath of the encounter, rebel intelligence learns about the Empire's transport of large amounts of Doonium, a metal used for starship hulls, which is considered the reason for the unexpectedly large imperial presence
