In the run up to the Battle of Saltash, she planned to use what she believed to be the overwhelming force advantage represented by her four battlecruisers against the encroaching destroyer force under Captain Jacob Zavala's command. In an attempt to avoid bloodshed, Zavala demonstrated that Manticoran recon drone and communications technology alone represented an insurmountable edge in his favor. Despite recognizing this, Dubroskaya allowed her arrogance and pride as a Solarian Navy officer to overcome her doubts in confronting Zavala, and she ignored his repeated warnings to abandon her ships or be destroyed.
After the first wave of Manticoran missiles struck her command, she attempted to surrender, but Zavala was not equipped with Apollo and thus could not self-destruct his missiles in time. All of her ships were virtually annihilated or battered to the point of complete combat ineffectuality, and she was among the first to die. (HH14)
