The epic battle of Yavin was the first major victory for the Rebel Alliance against the evil Galactic Empire.
In the climactic scene of this battle, Luke Skywalker, with the Force now his ally, maneuvered his X-wing fighter down a trench to a small thermal exhaust port, the only known weakness of the dreaded Death Star. In pursuit, Darth Vader prepared to fire upon Luke and R2-D2when out of nowhere, Han Solo came to their rescue in the Millennium Falcon! Darth Vaders TIE Fighter was spun off into space, allowing Luke to fire his proton torpedo, just as the Death Star moved into range to destroy the Rebel base on the 4th moon of Yavin. The torpedo set off a explosive chain-reaction, which destroyed the Imperial super-weapon, and won the day for the Rebel Alliance.
In a grand ceremony, Princess Leia presented the Medal of Yavin to Luke Skwalker and Han Solo, the heroes of the Batle of Yavin.
