|February 21, 2268 CE: The joint ICC and UGTO task force arrives in Sirius to start an investigation into their mysterious enemy. They get their answers much sooner than expected. Almost immediately a third party sets upon both fleets. The ICC and UGTO fleets were expecting trouble from each other, and so were already on a high state of alert. A vicious battle ensued, which cost the ICC and UGTO at least half of their forces before they each withdrew. However, during the fracas an elite UGTO marine force was able to board and capture one of these new unknown vessels.
