    Part of Republic Shield forces who oversaw and safeguarded the evacuation of Rolian evacuees from a doomed aqua planet (#12) orbiting a star about to go supernova (#11). Defended against Rolian Fanatics who attempted to thwart the evacuation operation, due to zealous religious beliefs about the necessity for all Rolian people to die with their star. (IBG302)

    Helped in the evacuation efforts of the Rolian system while also leading defensive measures in the region, when Republic Shield forces led the first wave of evacuation craft out of the system. (IBG303)

    Joint-led Republic Shield forces with the gunships Daunter, Daze, and Nova in flanking Rolian Fanatics forces that followed the main Republic Shield fleet along with the evacuating convoy further out from the Rolian system. The main Republic Shield force led by the Calamari Cruiser Rebel Fist created a defensive perimeter around the evacuation vessels, while the flanking Republic Shield forces defeated the attacking Rolian Fanatics force, led by the Bulk Cruiser Sekhmet. (IBG304)

    Present at the fleet buildup in the Vectain system during the Imperial massacre of a supply convoy en route, led by the Star Destroyer Thunderous possibly tipped off by Rolian Fanatics. (IBG305)

    Travelled with the Strike Frigate Idiot's Array to a region of space beyond the Rolian Fanatics Haven base, while forces from the Idiot's Array launched and scouted ahead to report on the defences present and their configuration. After receiving sensor data detailing the make-up of the Haven’s defences, the vessel travelled with the Idiot's Array to the base, and assisted the assault on the defence forces co-ordinated by the Dreadnaught Redeemer. Aided in the complete routing of the Rolian Fanatics defence forces, and joined Republic Shield forces in laying waste to the Haven Base.

The Strike Cruiser Dragon's Fire led reinforcements to the system instead of the Chiin'tal, and moments later the imminent Imperial attack force arrived. The task force, led by the Star Destroyer Belligerent, entered the system and launched forces in an attack on Republic Shield forces in the area. Republic Shield forces clashed with the attacking Imperial forces, and succeeded in thinning out the Imperial starfighter cover. Republic Shield reinforcements led by the Modified Frigate Celestial Fury arrived to contribute to the system’s defences, in preparation for the primary assault that the Imperial forces were moments away from delivering. (IBG407)

    Part of the main defensive force protecting New Trassk Base from Imperial strike force led by the Star Destroyer Belligerent. Participated in the defences during the battle, which were co-ordinated and led by the Calamari Cruiser Rebel Fist. Protectively flanked the Strike Cruiser Dragon's Fire, along with the gunship Nova. After an extensive battle the Imperial attack line was broken, allowing the separated capital ships to be picked off easier. The destruction of the Belligerent heralded the defeat of the attack force, and the Imperial forces attempted to withdraw. The majority of the Imperial attack forces were destroyed, the only exception being the Victory Star Destroyer Dominator, which managed to escape with extensive damage. (IBG408)

    Stationed at the Republic Shield fleet buildup while a task force investigated the location of a suspected Imperial outpost. The task force made contact with Imperial forces, reinforced by the Star Destroyer Parallax, and so Republic Shield reinforcements led by the Strike Cruiser Dragon's Fire left the buildup to directly engage the Star Destroyer. The reinforcements soon returned to the buildup extremely battered while other elements continued to raze the Imperial outpost and defending forces. (IBG504)

    Behind the Scenes


    The GSP Bayonet is one of four GSPs that were comissioned for service in the Intrepid Battle Group during the Yaga Minor conflict, as recorded in IBG Tour 1. We first meet this group of GSPs in the 9th mission of the tour. The Bayonet then had the name Arrow 1, the others were known as Arrow 2, Dart 1, and Dart 2. During the events taking place at the time, New Trassk Base was built (recorded in IBG Tour 2), all four GSPs were renamed. They were since known as Bayonet, Nova, Daunter, and Daze. Daunter and Daze were both destroyed during IBG Tour 5.

    Bayonet and Nova were part of the second IBG group arriving at Blerthmore, and played an important part in driving off the Imperials. After the restructuring of the RS fleet, they both were placed in the SSF.
