“We’ve received an encrypted message from one of our Rebel Operative teams in the Argus system. They were engaged in covert reconaissance of Imperial facilities in a nearby asteroid field.
Their HWK-290 has sustained heavy damage to its weapons and hyperdrive. They won’t make it back in one piece with their findings unless we scramble some fighter cover.
