Known Facts (4)
Summary
As Anakin Skywalker, Ashoka Tano, Plo Koon, another Jedi Knight - flying a Delta-7B interceptor - and Shadow Squadron approached, the Malevolence attacked the fleeing Pelta-class frigates with its ion cannons. After the frigates had been eradicated, several squadrons of Vulture droids were launched from the Malevolence, and the droid starfighters attacked the incoming Shadow Squadron. Despite the fact that his own Vulture droids would be caught in the blast, Grievous ordered the warship's ion cannon to target the approaching Y-wing bombers. As the Malevolence fired its ion cannon, Skywalker immediately ordered his squadron to head for the top edge of the ray to avoid being neutralized. However, Matchstick's fighter malfunctioned, and his fighter crashed into fellow pilot Tag's bomber, while Shadow Six, Seven, and Ten, were caught in the ion ray.
Even with its numbers cut in half, the Republic squadron continued toward the Malevolence and maneuvered through the incoming laser fire as the warship targeted the medcenter. Another of the Republic fighters had been destroyed, and Tano advised Skywalker that with their decreasing firepower, targeting the bridge was not their best option. Taking Koon's suggestion to obliterate the warship's primary weapon, Skywalker changed the target to the starboard ion cannon, and he, Koon, and another Jedi Knight spearheaded the attack on the cannon. After the cannon was hit by proton torpedoes, Grievous attempted to fire the weapon, but both cannons exploded, causing further damage to the ship and disabling the Malevolence's hyperdrive.
Kenobi's fleet of Star Destroyers arrived in the star system and directed laser fire at the Confederate warship. Unable to retreat to hyperspace, Grievous ordered the Malevolence to flee to Confederate-held space. Kenobi contacted Skywalker and congratulated him on his success, and Skywalker, Tano, Koon and the Jedi Knight went to the medical station to regroup and refuel their fighters to provide support for the Republic fleet.
