Battle of Yavin

This was perhaps one of the first true victories for the Rebellion. The movement had just aquired the plans for the Empire’s new terror weapon, the Death Star, and was planning an attack to counter it. However, the plans were nearly recaptured, and eventually led the Death Star right to the Rebel’s secret base on Yavin IV. In a desperate gambit, Luke Skywalker and a host of starfighters faced off against the battlestation, as well as Darth Vader. With help from Han Solo, Skywalker was able to destroy the original Death Star. However, the Rebel’s had to enact a hasty retreat, as the Empire was bringing the bulk of its fleet to bear on the base.
