After these factions joined the Consolidated Fleet Offensive the Giambattista travelled towards the Sol gate escorted by Rocinante. With the Free Navy being engaged across the entire Sol system in the Consolidated Fleet Offensive it was planned that these two ships would go undetected.
Upon reaching the gate the Giambattista began firing nearly 4000 non-Epstein ships, "chemical rockets or compressed-gas thrusters" into the slow zone at Medina Station. One of these however was actually a strike craft aimed at Ring Station to capture its railguns.
The battle was successful and the ship entered the slow zone. With a final Free Navy offensive heading directly towards them the Giambattista entered an opposite gate a moment before to cause the Free Navy ships to go Dutchman and vanish.
