They say that war changes a man. Well this week, war changed the entire dynamic of galactic power. Where one war ended another began. After a brief clash with the Zracon, Firintarogga, and Clixtak ended in a stalemate, a new war began. This time, the Golden Concord sought to end the Regime of Werheni Sui in a blitz. However, the Regime made some defensive pacts prior to our offensive. TuxKan and Clixtak came to the aid of our enemy and forced a division of my fleet. It was during this conflict that the NEX Continuity saw fit to gift me three ships roughly the size of our own destroyers. What was first thought to be a simple engagement turned into a nightmare. The Bebaki Consortium were completely helpless after their losses to the Great Khan. I had to divert the Retribution to aid them while the Leviathan fleet tore through straight to the capital world of Werheni. However, the TuxKan managed to outmaneuver the Retribution with a series of smaller fleets. Instead of pushing their territory, the Retribution was busy reclaiming what the Bebaki had lost. Furthermore, the Clixtak clans took advantage of my lack of preparation and began pushing on my territories. I had hoped the Sutharians would have helped on that front but again, I was disappointed. In a desperate attempt to distract the Clixtak from taking the colony of Lighthouse, I sent a smaller fleet through a wormhole and began cutting away at territory away from the front line. Surely enough this did the trick as the larger fleets of the Clixtak doubled back to reclaim their territory while I outmaneuvered them and returned my fleet safely to defend Lighthouse. I was even left hanging by the Bakturians, my strongest ally. They allowed an enemy fleet through their space and into my own. While it was nice to see them on the offensive, I can't help but wonder why they didn't defend their own border. The war dragged on for a while until all Werheni Sui worlds were occupied. Hubris was costly, however, as I had forgotten to claim one of the planets. Upon offering peace, the Regime of Werheni Sui was left with one planet and a handful of systems. The ensuing events would change the galaxy forever.
Fresh off of a devastating defeat, the Regime of Werheni Sui sought to strengthen its bonds with the TuxKan Autocracy and formed the Star Axis. Soon the Zracon Alliance, Hierarchy of Firintogga, and the Lethal Instrument Clixtak Clans would join this new galactic alliance. The Golden Concord now has a rival. The two unaffiliated empires, the Mect-Pux Autocracy and Havrigga Khanate, swiftly signed a defensive pact with each other. Not too long after that, the Zracon Alliance declared a rivalry with the Mect-Pux Autocracy. This triggered the Havrigga Khanate to end their relationship with the Star Axis and now war seems likely. The Golden Concord does not have a dog in this fight but may take the opportunity to weaken the Star Axis while it is distracted. The fleets are ready, all we need is a reason and an opportunity to take the first strike against the Star Axis.
