On this day in the year 2655, Firekkan soldiers and human marines successfully disrupted the Sivar-Eshrad ceremony. The vastly outnumbered Confeds managed to force the Kilrathi from the system, but many were killed and the Kilrathi took numerous hostages as they retreated. The Firekkans remained grateful friends with the Confederation through most of the next decade. They ultimately seceeded based on their (well placed) mistrust of the Kilrathi during the false peace armistice of 2668, which formed the basis of the Firekkan Planetary Alliance in the Firekka and neighboring T'kirsa systems.
