The Rebellion falters!
In two large engagements, Rebel and Imperial forces clashed in the 5th week of fighting for control of the Corellian sector.
Once again Admiral Ackbar - this time gathering the capital ships of Garm Bel Iblis to him - launched a full scale assault against Corellia. Lord Vader, supported by Admiral Screed ambushed the Rebel fleet en route, destroying the Phoenix home and Dodonna's pride, before leaving the rest of the Rebel fleet scarred and crippled.
In retaliation, Moff Jejerrod, alongside Admiral Motti, launched a campaign to clear the Sanhereling Asteroid field of a suspected Rebel outpost. The Rebels had hidden a sizeable fighter force within the belt and under the direction of Mon Mothma and Admiral Sato, the Rebels swiftly overwhelmed the Imperial fighter screen. However, despite their best efforts, they could not counter the firepower massed against them and several ships were heavily damaged before the Rebels were forced to withdraw, abadoning the outpost in the region.
Emboldened, the Empire has declared its intention to launch a full scale assault against the Rebellion - a final battle that will decide the Corellian conflict once and for all. Such a move is not without risk, for if the Rebellion can beat off the concentrated might of the Imperial fleet, they may yet break the back of the Empire in the Corellian sector. Hope is not yet lost - but it is fading.
