First Kilrathi Encounter
During exploration of the Vega Sector on 2629.105 (Orbit 151, Sun Year 5105 Kilrathi date), the TCS Iason encounters a craft of unknown origin. This craft is later discovered as being the KIS K'rath'kan. Commander Jedora Andropolos, commander of the Iason transmits an international wide-band, non-verbal greeting to the unknown craft, keeping guns off-line. Detecting the wide-band radiation produced when the Iason transmits, the K'rath'kan believes that the radiation is an attempt to disable Kilrathi shields. When the Iason fails to leave the area after twenty minutes, Brath'kar nar Caxki, commander of the K'rath'kan orders the ship to open fire destroying the Iason and all hands.

[Victory Streak]

2634.228 

McAuliffe attack signal
Confederation cryptographer Ches M. Penney partially decodes a Kilrathi message which refers to a strike against the Confederation, starting with an attack on the colony on McAuliffe and the station in orbit around it, Alexandria. Confederation High Command sends a fleet twice the size of the expected enemy fleet to defend McAuliffe.
[Wing Commander]

2634.235 

McAuliffe attack
A Kilrathi fleet attacks McAuliffe and wipes out the defending Terran fleet using their new shield-piercing torpedoes and fighter based doctrine to decimate the Confederation forces. Despite the Confederation deploying a fleet twice the size of the estimated enemy fleet, the incomplete translation of the partially decoded signal means that the enemy fleet is actually quadruple the expected size. The battle lasts four days. The Kilrathi take more damage than they expected during the battle forcing them to turn back and regroup after the offensive.
[Voices of War]

2634.236 

Battle of McAuliffe
Fighters and bombers from the Concordia the Ark Royal launch on a counter-attack against Kilrathi forces at McAuliffe. Concordia's forces feign at a carrier, then break off, loop McAuliffe and attack the Kilrathi transports and landing craft, while Ark Royal's forces engage the originally targetted Carrier. Once Ark Royal's bombers have struck the carrier, they loop around the planet and form the second wave of the attack against the Kilrathi transports and LCs. There is only time for one sweep, and the confed forces can't slow down because they need the velocity to loop back out and make it to rendezvous with the carriers. Missiles are to be under complete computer control, taking care of target acquisition and firing. Pilots are to control the guns
[Action Stations]


Ratha
Ratha, ejecting after his ship was destroyed by Vance Richards, kills himself by removing his helmet, so he would not be shamed by being defeated and left alive. Instead of taking Tolwyn's wave as a friendly gesture to a fellow warrior, he took it as a mocking insult to his honour

[Wing Commander]


McAuliffe occupation
Kilrathi forces occupy McAuliffe and take a quarter of a million humans hostage under orbital guns. The Confederation attempts an attack, made difficult by the presence of hostages. The Confederation deploys an attack force consisting mainly of Raptor class fighters equipped with Porcupine mines. The Raptors drop their mines in a region of space near a main jump point. This forces the Kilrathi to avoid the area. While the Kilrathi concentrate on destroying the Raptors, a radio signal detonates all of the mines allowing the Terran fleet to jump in-system. The Terran fleet smashes the orbital guns and enemy ships with minimal loss of life to the colonists. The Kilrathi are forced to retreat, however losses on both sides are about equal.
[Voices of War]

2644 

Custer's Carnival
In 2644, Terran ground forces launch an attack on the fortified Kilrathi Kr'azna colony. Unexpected Kilrathi fighter cover causes the ground forces to retreat in their lightly armed transports. Since the transports had little chance against the pursuing heavy Kilrathi warships, the TCS Tiger's Claw attempts to intercept the Kilrathi warships and give the transports time to escape. The Tiger's Claw succeeds in allowing the transport to escape, but suffers heavy losses and damage. The Claw retreats in to Terran space with three quarters of its engines destroyed and half of its pilots injured. Two Gold Stars and numerous other medals are awarded to Tiger's Claw pilots. The Claw itself is forced to spend six months in spacedock repairing.

This action is later given the name Custer's Carnival.

Battle of Repleetah
When declaration of war reached this backwater planet (took twenty years?), Terran researches went to visit Kilrathi researchers to reaffirm their pursuit of knowledge. Kilrathi wiped out humans in surprise biological attack. Marines engaged in most sustained land-based fighting of the entire war. It was World War I style trench warfare in bio-resistant suits. Back and forth, one side would gain ground one day only to lose it the next. Though an airstrike would end the battle, neither side commits. Ten years later, supply ships stop coming and only a few troops remain. Everyone dies in a last-ditch attack by led Lt Miles D'Arby.

Blair rescues Thrakhath
The ejected Kilrathi pilot who Blair has rescued turns out to be Prince Thrakhath. His flight suit's heat regulator had broken and he was slowly freezing to death until Blair rescued him. Thrakhath is kept prison aboard the Bonnie Heather where he reveals that his cousin Khasra attempted to kill him.
[Special Operations 1]


Ghorah Khar G
Khasra threatens to destroy the Bonnie Heather if they don't turn Thrakhath over to him. Blair launches to defend the Bonnie Heather. Meanwhile the Heather suffers a power failure due to it's previously damaged power plant just as Ralgha nar Hhallas is locking Thrakhath in the brig. Thrakhath knocks out Ralgha nar Hhallas and steals a Crossbow. Blair shoots down the attacking forces including Khasra, but Thrakhath escapes

Ghorah Khar H
The Bonnie Heather returns to Olympus Station. They arrive fifteen minutes before the remaining of the Kilrathi carrier groups having faced three of the five the day before while Blair rescued the Bonnie Heather. Olympus lost fourteen pilots the day before and their attempts to call for reinforcements are jammed by the Kilrathi.

Blair and Ralgha nar Hhallas land their Crossbows and immediately launch in Sabres since there is no time to refit the Crossbows. Fortunately, a wing of pilots from the Gettysburg including Jason Bondarevsky arrive after they were sent ahead by Admiral Tolwyn when they lost communications with Olympus. Blair, Ralgha nar Hhallas, and Jason Bondarevsky's wing successfully defend Ghorah Khar and allow N'Tanya, K'arakh and Shariha to complete their rebellions.
[Special Operations 1]


Kilrathi capture Deneb
While the Confederation's Enigma sector fleet are diverted to defend Ghorah Khar, Thrakhath moves his forces in to the Deneb Sector, managing to capture Deneb Sector Command in less than six hours.

[Special Operations 2]


Canewdon A
Blair's leave on Akko Station is cancelled and he is ordered to escort the prison ship Bastille to the prison ship Alcatraz. Zachary Colson is to be transferred to the Alcatraz for the flight back to Earth for his execution. During the mission, Blair receives a distress signal from a group of freighters. Blair defends the freighters, however while he does, Mandarin hijackers take over the Bastille and activate the jump drive allowing Zachary Colson to escape. After the mission, Blair returns to the Concordia which has just entered the system.
[Special Operations 2]


Emperor wants the Morningstar
Thrakhath reports to the Emperor that his forces have decimated the Confederation's 6th Battle Fleet and have attacked a Human colony. Thrakhath also informs the Emperor of Zachary Colson's escape. The Emperor orders Thrakhath to use Zachary Colson to help gain the Morningstar prototype.
[Special Operations 2]


Canewdon B
Blair and Stingray fly a patrol of Canewdon system to assess the strength of enemy forces. Aside from a Dorkathi, Blair's wing doesn't find anything of interest.
[Special Operations 2]


Todd Marshall arrives
Todd Marshall arrives on the Concordia. He has been promoted to Major since he last met Blair, and is now in command of the Wild Eagles, a group of test pilots who are testing the new Morningstar fighter.
[Special Operations 2]


Canewdon C
One of the Wild Eagles, Minx, failed to make the jump due to problems with the prototype Morningstar. Blair launches in a Sabre to rescue Minx.
[Special Operations 2]


Canewdon D
Since the Morningstar is plagued with random jump failure, Blair flies a Sabre equipped with a jump recorder to record Todd Marshall as he jumps in a Morningstar. Afterwards, Blair continues on a patrol where he encounters the Gamal Gan, a Dorkathi with engine trouble. The freighter surrenders and Concordia launches a patrol to retrieve it.
[Special Operations 2]

2667.099 

Gamal Gan
The Gamal Gan had a Mandarin working on board. After interviewing the Mandarin, he reveals that the Gamal Gan was transporting supplies to a secret Mandarin base called Ayer's Rock. The location of the base remains a mystery.
[Special Operations 2]


Canewdon E
Blair launches in a Broadsword and escorts Todd Marshall, Crossbones and Talon in Morningstars on a test patrol. The patrol encounters some heavy resistance including a wing of Strakha fighters.
[Special Operations 2]


Canewdon F
The Concordia detects a wave of Kilrathi approaching from the asteroid field. Blair and Stingray scramble to intercept and are able to take them out. The attackers included a Kamekh and a wing of Gothris.
[Special Operations 2]


Canewdon G
While navigating through dense mine and asteroid fields, the Concordia detects low level transmissions from an unknown source. Blair and Wasp launch to investigate, but before they get to the source, Concordia signals Blair telling him that the source is a timed explosion device. Blair's wing retreats just in time before the explosive device triggers.
[Special Operations 2]


Mandarin transmissions
The Mandarins start transmitting propaganda broadcasts showing two Terran freighters being hijacked. The hijackings are led by Zachary Colson.
[Special Operations 2]


Canewdon H
Jeanette Deveraux and Minx fly a patrol, but during the mission they encounter a massive enemy force. Jeanette Deveraux orders Minx back to the Concordia so that the Morningstar doesn't get captured, but Jeanette Deveraux is forced to eject. When Blair sees that Minx has returned without Jeanette Deveraux, he immediately launches and rescues Jeanette Deveraux.
[Special Operations 2]

2667.100 

Canewdon I
The Mandarins offer the Concordia a deal. They offer to return the crews of the hijacked freighters in exchange for three Mandarins currents imprisoned on the Concordia. High Command approves the exchange and Blair launches alone in a Broadsword to escort the transport. After the exchange, a Ralatha and a wing of Drakhai attack the transport carrying the freighter crews, but Blair manages to hold them off.
[Special Operations 2]


Canewdon J
Maria Grimaldi steals a Morningstar prototype and flees the Concordia, setting an explosive to cover her escape. Markham Colt is killed and Janet McCullough and Jeffrey Burkheimer are injured in the explosion. It takes 25 minutes to repair the flight deck before Christopher Blair and Todd Marshall can launch and persue her. This delay along with a co-ordinated enemy presence allows Maria Grimaldi to escape with the Morningstar.
[Special Operations 2]


Canewdon K
Blair, Todd Marshall and Talon transfer to the Special Operations division leave with James Taggart in the Grimalkin - formerly the Gamal Gan. Blair and Todd Marshall fly to meet the Grimalkin which has already left with James Taggart and Talon. Talon mans the communications room since the explosion left him unable to fly.
[Special Operations 2]


Canewdon L
Blair and Todd Marshall escort the Grimalkin to the jump point to Ayer's system. Since the Morningstar still has trouble with random jump failure, Blair and Todd Marshall dock before the Grimalkin jumps.
[Special Operations 2]

2667.101 

Grimalkin reaches Ayer's Rock
The Grimalkin arrives at Ayer's Rock where they are signalled by security. Talon gives the correct countersign. Talon tells the Kilrathi that the Gamal Gan is late due to engine problems and that they can't dock at that time. This buys time for the Grimalkin to monitor the base.
[Special Operations 2]


Scorpion talks to James Taggart
Scorpion opens communications with James Taggart and informs him that the base is scrambling two wings to fighters to investigate the electronic masking of the Morningstars. Blair and Todd Marshall intercept the wings and destroy them before they can report back to Ayer's Rock.
[Special Operations 2]


Scorpion talks to James Taggart 2
Scorpion sends another message saying that the entire base is under security alert looking for him. He also says that Ayer's Rock is being used as the main base for all Mandarin operations and hundreds of pockets of resistance are co-ordinated from there. Also because of security risks, there has never been a meeting of all Mandarin leaders until this time. With all of the Mandarin leaders on Ayer's Rock, the destruction of the base would effectively eliminate the Mandarins.
[Special Operations 2]


Ayer's B
James Taggart alerts the Concordia to the present situation, but the Concordia is unable to assist. Blair and Todd Marshall launch to escort the Grimalkin to the nearest jump point destroying two Fralthra cruisers on the way.
[Special Operations 2]


Scorpion talks to James Taggart 3
Scorpion sends yet another transmission to James Taggart. Scorpion says that Ayer's Rock is being evacuated since they are certain that the Concordia is coming. Talon lets slip that the Concordia isn't coming and at that point Admiral Rakh'rhi takes over the communications offering James Taggart the chance to surrender. James Taggart refuses and Rakh'rhi executes Scorpion.
[Special Operations 2]


Ayer's C
With Scorpion dead and Ayer's Rock feeling safe after learning that Concordia isn't coming, Blair and Todd Marshall launch to attempt to destroy Ayer's Rock themselves. Despite facing forces including Sabres and two Kamekhs, Blair's wing succeeds in destroying the base.
[Special Operations 2]


Concordia fires its big gun
The Concordia comes under attack from a Fralthra. Despite only being at 60% power and with the risk of blowing Concordia's power plant, Tolwyn issues an order to fire the main gun. Fortunately the powerplant survives and the Fralthra is destroyed.
[Special Operations 2]


Minx dying
The Grimalkin receives a transmission from the area of the remains of Ayer's Rock. The transmission comes from Minx who tells Blair that she is in an escape pod, but she has taken too much radiation damage from the explosion of the base. She also tells Blair that Zachary Colson has the Morningstar prototype and left her to die.
[Special Operations 2]


Ayer's D
Blair and Todd Marshall launch to attempt to locate and destroy Zachary Colson, however shortly after launch Todd Marshall's Morningstar breaks down. Blair flies the mission alone and successfully tracks down and terminates Zachary Colson. After the mission Blair jumps to the Concordia.

Valgard Pirate Execution

2681.014.0700 - Thirty six Kilrathi convicted on piracy, murder, extortion and malicious disorder are executed at the Valgard Military Prison complex. The prisoners were executed as a group by flash incineration. The pirate's leader Krahtagh N'Ryllis, AKA Bloodeye was included in the executions. The Kilrathi Provisional Counsel protested the executions. The Kilrathi did not contest the guilt of the pirates, but argued that the pirates should have been turned over to the Kilrathi for execution by traditional methods. Sector Governer Stella Lee issued a statement in response.
"While the government of this sector appreciates the eagerness of the Kilrathi to assist in the process of justice, we strongly feel that it is importatnt that these bloody murderers should meet their well-deserved fate at the hand of those they so brutally victimized. Therefore, we must respectfull refuse Kilrathi assistance in the execution of this sentence."
The "Demon's Eye Pack" pirates terrorized colonists and disrupted space traffic in Epsilon Sector for almost five months in 2680 until their base was taken by Marines from TCS Midway. Of the estimated 400 Kilrathi living in the pirate base, at least 300 were killed and the rest taken prisoner. Fifty four females, children and slaves were released in to Kilrathi custody, while Bloodeye and thirty five followers were given capital convictions in a high-profile trial.

Senate debate
In a "vigorous" debate on the Senate floor, Senator Taggart and the Federationist party pushed for gradual expansion of the military budget, while Senator Diego and the Populist party pushed for a 35% rollback of all military spending, a reduction of about 1.7 trillion credits, with 10% to be diverted to humanitarian programs and the remaining 25% to tax relief. Senator Diego attacked the spending policies of the Confed armed forces and Senator Taggart's Megacarrier project. Diego said "Now I look at this so-called megacarrier that we're spending so much on, and I ask myself what, exactly are we defending against? My Uncle Eddy used to keep a blaster by his bed in case he was attacked by little blue aliens in the night. After they spent most of their life savings on wall repairs, my Aunt Lori had him locked up. I'm wondering if we're not throwing our money after imaginary threats? And I wonder if we're going to come to our senses, or end up like Uncle Eddy."
Taggart responded "Talk of a 'peace dividend' is, at best, redundant. Military expenditures are already down 45% from their wartime peak. And far from being wasteful, the megacarrier program is the most economical plan available. Over half of our war-era fleet is obsolete and failing, and if we tried to replace the old ships with ships of the same type, it would cost almost twice as much as the entire megacarrier program to provide the same level of defense. When the Kilrathi started the war more than half a century ago, we were unready and underequipped, because we though we could count on a time of peace. The cost of our misjudgement was an unthinkable toll in lives and property. The Confederation owes it to itself - to its people - to make a solemn vow to never be so taken again."
