History

Travelled to the Synastry facility to rendezvous with the rest of the Zodiac Battle Fleet at the rendezvous point. Arrived during an undercover Republic Shield reconnaissance operation led by the captured Victory Star Destroyer Kingpin. The Kingpin used its battle damage to fool Imperial forces into preparing a repair operation while a reconnaissance force roamed the area collecting data of the assembled craft. The reconnaissance operation was revealed when the Calamari Cruiser Sagittarius arrived and alerted Imperial forces to the true allegiance of the Kingpin. The Victory Star Destroyer then attempted to withdraw from the outpost while Imperial forces attempted to bring it down. They failed, as the Kingpin and its reconnaissance force escaped into hyperspace. (RgF402)

Led Imperial attack forces in an assault against a Corellian convoy near navigation buoys XTR25N and XTR25S. The escorting Coronet Security Agency forces led by the Frigate Tango Base were unable to turn back the vessel’s attack force, which ripped into the convoy in an attempt to prevent the ships from reaching the navigation buoy XTR25S and their accompanying hyperpoints. However, Republic Shield forces arrived, presumably in response to the convoy’s distress call, and aided Coronet Security Agency forces in diffusing the Imperial attack effort. The arrival of Imperial reinforcements led by the Strike Cruiser Scorpio helped Imperial forces step up the attack on the convoy and its defenders, and the transport group Xi arrived to bombard the convoy and the Frigate Tango Base. The Scorpio’s engagement of the Tango Base forced the frigate to shy away, however the arrival of Republic Shield reinforcements led by the Strike Cruiser Kayak disrupted Imperial efforts, as the Kayak unleashed its weapons on the Scorpio, which was suddenly pinned down between the Frigate Tango Base and the Strike Cruiser Kayak. The vessel was soon unable to contribute to the Imperial attack or lend assistance to the outgunned Scorpio, as the Frigate Horizon arrived on top of it and directed engaged it. Imperial forces were rapidly becoming overwhelmed, with the Scorpio soon succumbing to Republic Shield and Coronet Security Agency fire. The attack force broken, the remainder of the Corellian convoy was free to continue to its hyperspace points. The vessel, meanwhile, was unable to escape or fight effectively, as the combined forces of the Republic Shield and Coronet Security Agency forces converged on the vessel, setting it aflame. Destroyed by Republic Shield and Coronet Security Agency forces. (RgF409)
