Republic Shield vessel commanded by Captain Tauber 92.


PBF 211

Led Republic Shield reinforcements in supporting the beleaguered Frigate Echo Hawk and its defending forces, which were being assaulted by an Imperial force led by the Star Destroyer Darkstar. Republic Shield forces successfully covered the Echo Hawk long enough for it to withdraw from the combat zone; however Imperial reinforcements led by the Frigate Savage ambushed the vessel, directly engaging it. Republic Shield forces pushed back the Imperial forces, bombarding the Savage into submission, and allowing the vessel to withdraw from the combat zone, as the Imperial forces too withdrew from the engagement.

PBF 212

After sustaining heavy damage by Imperial forces led by the Frigate Savage, the vessel limped back to the operational area where the disabled Calamari Cruiser Windstorm was undergoing final repairs. The vessel shut down combat systems and awaited repairs while the Windstorm received a replacement hyperdrive. Imperial forces led by the Star Destroyer Darkstar attempted to hamper the repair operations of the Windstorm; however Republic Shield defence forces led by the Calamari Cruiser McGrath repulsed the attack. This allowing repairs on the Windstorm’s hyperdrive to be completed, which it then used to escape from the area.

PBF 403

Present at the planet Tarsonis, in the Greeop system, during meeting between Republic Shield and White Guard diplomats, at a White Guard outpost.

PBF 410

Republic Shield command staff arrived on the vessel from the damaged Calamari Cruiser Windstorm via the shuttle Teke's Hand, to lead the fleet against the White Guard from the Valour. Led Republic Shield attack force against the White Guard main fleet in the Enomea Rim. Moved into position between the White Guard vessel, the Calamari Cruiser White Dragon, and the Frigate Minotaur to help draw fire away from the commando force aboard the transport Katarn which boarded and captured the damaged White Guard Frigate Minotaur. Took quite a beating in the encounter, but Republic Shield forces won the day, destroying the two primary White Guard vessels, the Tempest and the White Dragon, as well as capturing the Frigate Minotaur.

PBF 501

Stationed in friendly space after campaigning in Imperial and White Guard territory.

PBF 506

Reinforced Republic Shield forces and helped take control of a combat zone near an asteroid field in the Cadrel Expanse, where an Imperial convoy was being escorted by sizable Imperial forces led by the Frigate Falcata. Helped defend Republic Shield reconnaissance forces from Imperial defences as they scanned cargo carrying craft. Imperial forces were unable to prevent the cargo contents of the entire convoy being scanned and identified.

PBF 508

Waited with the Frigate Rebel Vengeance as bait for Imperial forces near a rock planet in the Cadrel Expanse. Imperial forces fell for the trap, with the Frigate Falcata leading Imperial and pirate assault on the vessels. Led Republic Shield forces in holding Imperial and pirate forces at bay until Republic Shield reinforcements could arrive. Imperial reinforcements led by the Frigate Catapult arrived before this could happen, and only after an extensive and exhaustive battle did Republic Shield reinforcements led by the Calamari Cruiser Windstorm and backed up by the Frigate Echo Hawk arrive to turn the tide of the battle and crush the Imperial and pirate forces.

PBF 509

Held steady on the edge of the Yuen Lon system and effected repairs while the Calamari Cruiser McGrath led Republic Shield attack on an Imperial warhead factory in the Anshife system. Admiral Borran and repair crews from the Calamari Cruiser Windstorm were reportedly intending to transfer across to the vessel to help speed up repairs from the damage the vessel had taken in the previous engagement.

PBF 510

Travelled to the Republic Shield rendezvous point near two rock planets in the Yuen Lon system, in preparation for a final attack on the weapons facility in the Yuen Lon system. Reinforced Republic Shield forces led by the Frigate Rebel Vengeance, who had proceeded ahead as a forward guard, and which was under attack by Imperial and pirate forces led by the Frigate Krechet. Joined the engagement to hold off Imperial and pirate forces until the Calamari Cruiser Windstorm would arrive to strengthen the position and deliver the shuttle Teke’s Hand. The arrival of the Frigate Mystic helped strengthen the Imperial strike force, moving the balance of power away from Republic Shield forces somewhat. The neutral corvette Quartzite entered the area, and Imperial forces attempted to prevent the ship from escaping, in an attempt to leave the Cadrel Expanse feeling vulnerable and under-protected by Republic Shield forces. The Valour led Republic Shield forces in defence of the neutral vessel, allowing it to escape. The arrival of the Windstorm bolstered Republic Shield forces, aiding in the defeat of the attacking Imperial forces, causing the destruction of the Frigates Krechet and Mystic. Helped protect and receive the shuttle Teke’s Hand, which flew through the engagement zone from the Windstorm to the vessel.

PBF 511

Reinforced Republic Shield forces led by the Calamari Cruiser McGrath that had discovered the illegal weapons factory on the edge of the Anshife system, in the dying minutes of the battle. Rallied Republic Shield forces to a final strike against the remaining Imperial forces, purging them from the combat zone. The transport group Katarn completed their boarding operation of the mobile factory, and then escaped into hyperspace.
