As told in the novel Lost Stars, one of the major things that happens during the battle is the scuttling of the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Inflictor by Captain Ciena Ree. The commander of the vessel had attempted to activate the ship’s self-destruct and prevent it from being captured by the New Republic’s forces, only to discover that the self-destruct had been disabled. Seeing no other option, as well as seeing a way to leave the Empire while keeping her oath, Ree ordered her crew to evacuate and then scuttled the ship by crashing the Star Destroyer onto the surface of Jakku, sending shockwaves across the desert world.
