Battle of Paquito

Quadrant 6.  Grid 640959.  StarDate 3197.200.

The first Battle of Paquito was a disaster for the Earth Empire. It was believed that one Exterminator was destroyed, but at the cost of the bulk of the Earther fleet in Quadrant 6.

Battle of French

Quadrant 5, Grid 649872, Stardate 3197.231

Alerted by the invasions in the eastern edges of Esteeler and Martian colonial space, the Esteeler Governor and Martian Supreme Councillor for Quadrant 5 had managed to stitch up a temporary agreement to assist each other.  A Combined Fleet, under Martain Admiral Akiyoshi, assembled at French, an expected attack point.  The prediction was correct, and in due course, two BSB’s arrived in system.  An aggressive attack plan was devised, invovling maximum use of nuclear weapons. This had some success, in that reports indicate that one of the enemy machines was destroyed.  But the cost was terrible, and the other BSB, though damaged, was able to complete the destruction of the bulk of the fleet.  All bar one of the capital ships was destroyed, and the Admiral killed.  Few ships escaped, and the situation is critical.
