. The pilots were effectively pinned down by Imperial fire from outside the base, and the only way to cover their run for the ships was to increase shield power. Lead operative quickly assessed shield's status, and it didn't look that bad - if a couple of auxillary power stations will be put online to provide necessary power. The team quickly found the location of all four power stations. They reached first one and activated it. They have ran to the second one, but a thundering blast sent them sprawling to the ground and its source, a fearsome Imperial scout tank

. It took them several minutes to finally disable the tank and they ran toward second power station. The reached it, but as soon as one of the operatives keyed the activation sequence, the power station blown up throwing all operatives to the ground. Fortunately for them no one was killed but all sustained minor wounds. The snowtroopers catched up and started the attack, the operatives ducked for cover again and returned fire. They noticed that another soldier

in Rebel garb with grim scarred face was running toward them, but they disn't have time to celebrate, because he opened fire not at snowtroopers, but at operatives. Whoever he was, he wasn't definitely on their side. But the reinforcements finally came, a couple of Rebel troopers joined the fray and quickly thrown back the Imperials. The operatives waved their thanks to the troopers and run toward next power stations hoping that it won't blow up into their faces. The base heaters finally gave out and the temperature started to decrease fast. For next several minutes the operatives activated two more power stations and heard reassuing mechanical hum told them that secondary shield was back online. They quickly returned to where they started, noticing that the pilots were already running off toward their fighters and transports protected by fully powered shield generator.
