Description: The Indus is sent to make contact with a Vasudan logistics vessel.


The securing of the GTL Agincourt for the UEF was a phenomenal coup for TF Wargods. Admirals Netreba and Calder had planned to use the ship for continued offensives against the GTVA; however, Admiral Byrne and the Council of Elders had other plans for the logistics ship. After long negotiations, Netreba and Calder surrender the Agincourt for use in the Federation Science Council's ongoing secret project. In return, Second and Third Fleets gain autonomy for military decisions; non-military decisions, of course, remain the purview of the Council of Elders. In a communique to Admirals Netreba and Calder, Admiral Byrne rebukes them for their recklessness during the operation to secure the Agincourt, putting their lives and themselves in danger. He also expresses dismay at the general strategy they have chosen to pursue and their lack of faith in the Elders' decisions, restating that "this war shall never be won by force of arms".

As this all is happening, Admiral Steele has put in motion a contingency plan to compensate for the loss of the Agincourt, calling on the Vasudans for logistical support. As a result, the Vasudan logistics vessel Pesedjet has entered the Sol system. Not long after this, it was attacked by elements of the Gaian Effort. How exactly the Gefs managed to get hold of the GTVA's ship movement orders remains a mystery; nevertheless, the Indus is sortied to drive off the Gefs, establish contact with the Vasudans, and ascertain the Imperium's intentions.
