Prelude to War
Vesta Colony Massacre
Tellus Colony Massacre
Battle of Earth
Battle of the Belt
Battle of Ixion
With a peace solution apparently close, a meeting between a high ranking Chig officer and representatives of Earth takes places aboard the Saratoga. At the request of the Chig, the Chief Executive of Aerotech is asked to join the meeting.
During the talks the Chig commander aims several accusations about Aerotech´s knowledge of the Chigs and their claims to the planets Vesta and Tellus before the colony ships landed. It also claims that their species originated from Earth and that they have a claim on Earth too.
During a heated arguement between the commander and the Aerotech exec, the Chig breaks through the glass separating the humans and itself. As he kills the executive, a gun shot is fired, detonating the gasses that were meant only for the Chig to breath. Several are killed or badly injured including Colonel McQueen.
With the death of the commander, Chig forces begin to attack again and the cease fire ends.
All is left in the balance with the Chigs knowing where operation Roundhammer is to begin. The series ends with no resolution to the war.
