(Dramatized because otherwise it's a boring story)

Lord Vader[37] takes a fighter out to check on the imperial fleet[200pts] that is defending the system: A VT-49 Decimator[52], an imperial shuttle[28], 3 TIE fighters and a TIE Phantom[47].

Just as Vader's ship arrives in the area, The Millennium Falcon[44] pulls out of hyperspace with a rebel fleet[200pts] in tow: 2 X-wings, 2 Y-wings, 2 B-wings and 2 Z-95 Headhunters.

The Rebels quickly engage the unsuspecting imperial fleet. 2 TIEs go down right away and the imperial shuttle is badly damaged. Vader unleashes the power of the Dark side against a squad of B-wings and X-wings, and the Phantom follows up with a ruthless barrage of his own. The rebel squad scraps by without a lost ship, but takes heavy damage. Vader's fury wasn't without consequence though, as his ship's shields were caught in a blast and damaged his hull.

Vader flips around to take out a nearly dead x-wing but a miscalculation threw him directly into a debris field, damaging his ship and putting him out of the fight. Nearby, the Phantom pursues a B-Wing, while The Decimator tries to pull in to defend the damaged shuttle to make up for the early loss of the TIE fighters. The Falcon and the squad of Y-Wings and Z-95s finish off the shuttle despite the Decimator's efforts and land some crippling shots on the Decimator's hull.

Both Rebel squadrons focus their full power on the Decimator, which quickly falls under the onslaught. The remaining TIEs however aren't going to let up. The last TIE Fighter takes out an X-wing, and the TIE Phantom finishes off a B-wing.

With the battle nearly lost for the empire, the remaining X-wing finishes off the TIE Fighter while the B-wing, both Y-Wings and both Headhunters turn on the Phantom while the Falcon dodges asteroids trying to get back into the fight.

The lone Phantom, looking on the destroyed imperial fleet, is astonished at the unbelievable skill shown by the rebel fleet thus far. It prepares for his impending doom. The Phantom turns in on the Rebels and fires it's final shots at a damaged Y-Wing, hoping to take it with him: but to no avail. The Phantom couldn't focus on the task at hand and the odds of surviving this rebel[165] attack by oneself[47] is not good. The Rebels quickly take out the Phantom's shields and turn to finish him off.



...but the Dark Side was strong with this one...

The Phantom pilot shakes off his pessimistic stupor and is ready to show these Rebels his true power.

The Rebel fleet tries desperately to put the the Phantom down, but the Phantom evades their attacks as enters the asteroid field in search of the X-wing that Vader had once been hunting. A Z-95 swoops in to protect the damaged X-wing but the Phantom quickly switches targets and unleashes the full power of the his attack into the Z-95, destroying it in a single shot. The X-wing, being too close to the blast, is destroyed along with it.



The Falcon, having a hard time keeping up without flying through the especially close asteroids, attempts to get in close. The Phantom's sensor jammers make each shot an easy dodge. A B-Wing turns to run, luring the Phantom out of the asteroids, while two Y-wings pull around to catch the Phantom from behind. With a quick turn, the Phantom lays heavy damage on last Z-95, and an already crippled Y-wing. It wasn't long before the Phantom had finished them both off for good. Realizing that the Falcon was right in front of him now, the Phantom returns to the asteroids, knowing the Falcon would hesitate.



The B-wing has now caught up with the last Y-wing and both turn to get the Phantom back in their sights. As the Phantom approaches, the B-Wing and final Y-Wing prepare to take out the Phantom once and for all. The Falcon pulls in from behind to catch the Phantom off guard. Without more than a thought, the Phantom swerves and evades shots from all three ships. With a sharp turn and another volley of fire, the B-Wing and Y-wing are destroyed.

The Phantom, now face to face with the Falcon, prepares for the final fight.



The Falcon throws everything it had at the Phantom again and again, but the Dark side of the force was too powerful, making each shot all too easy to evade. It wasn't long before the Millennium Falcon was caught in an unbearable barrage of fire, and fell to the Phantom's vengeance.
