All forces

The Raid above Yavin was an armed search mission organized by crimelord Tyber Zann.



Zann heard of a rumor involving Emperor Palpatine's personal vaults which contained vast amounts of money. While he knew nothing of the locations, Zann believed that the answer could be found in the remains of the Death Star which the Rebels had destroyed at Yavin.

He believed that someone on the Death Star had followed standard procedures and ejected some Data pods before the destruction of the battlestation.

The battle

Tyber Zann ordered his forces to make a pass around Yavin. They encountered a Rebel patrol which they quickly destroyed. They then found the first data pod which contained top secret information about discussions between the Grand Moffs. This was of no use to Zann.

The flotilla then discovered an Acclamator II-class assault ship which was guarded by four Tartan-class patrol cruisers, however the Tartan cruisers abandoned the Acclamator and defected to the Consortium. The Acclamator was subsequently destroyed.

The Consortium then found another data pod which contained the designs for a brand new warship being constructed at Kuat. This warship was the Eclipse-class Star Dreadnought known as Eclipse.

After dealing with another Rebel confrontation and destroying several missile satellites, Tyber found another data pod. This contained the designs for a new warship called the Aggressor-class destroyer. Zann still believed that at least one data pod could be found.

Tyber's forces had to fight off not just another Rebel group, but also multiple pirate units as well, such as Rihkxyrk Attack Ships and a Barloz-class freighter. These had found the data pod before him, but Tyber Zann managed to steal it just as an Imperial-class Star Destroyer arrived.


"Well, what do you know. I love it when I'm right!"
―Tyber Zann

The fourth data pod contained the exact information that Zann was looking for, and he found that the locations of the vaults could be accessed from inside Eclipse. He then moved to the next step of building his criminal empire.
