Upon entering the Gorse system, Captain Sloane ordered the mining traffic between Gorse and Cynda to stay clear within a kilometre of the Ultimatum per Imperial Navy procedure. Vidian then intervened and convinced Sloane to back her ship away from the mining traffic in order to avoid slowing down production. Sloane and her crew including Commander Nibiru Chamas were present when Vidian ordered the Ultimatum to open fire on a damaged laggard freighter called the Cynda Dreaming in order to "speed" up the traffic. Sloane stayed aboard the Star Destroyer while Vidian conducted his tour of the mines on Cynda. While patrolling the mining fleet, Sloane had a brief but hostile exchange with a "cheeky" freighter pilot named Kanan Jarrus , who made snide remarks about her appearance. Unknown to Sloane, Kanan was a Jedi Padawan who had survived the Jedi Purge .
