The Battle of Taiie was a short but violent battle in YE 29, the YSS Miharu that had just launched from Scorpio Star Fortress, detected a large Sfrarabla Mishhuvurthyar Xhrafuklurp (SMX) and a never seen before Shlarvasseroth-class Flagship while on route to the Taiie System. 1) The flagship was later found to be commanded by Melisson, who would become one of the greatest adversaries the Star Army of Yamatai would ever face.
Unexpectedly the Shlarvasseroth-class Flagship fired its transposition at the system's star which caused it to go Hypernova which resulted in the destruction of nearly everything in the Taiie System within a window of approximately fifteen minutes.
Some civilian starships, shuttles, and other craft managed a narrow escape along with some of the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet, which included Hotaru Star Fortress and Himitsu Star Fortress. The loss of life in the tragedy was astronomical.
The notable participants of this battle were:
The Sfrarabla Mishhuvurthyar Xhrafuklurp (SMX) under the command of Melisson ended up annexing the entire Bard Cluster in the following months, and the Taiie Nebula and those worlds remained as Sfrarabla Mishhuvurthyar Xhrafuklurp (SMX) territory until the signing of the YE 30 Intergalactic Armistice Agreement of YE 30 (IAA) treaty.
Some of the refugees were taken from the Taiie System to Pisces Station. An uprising occurred on the station as a result of the improper treatment of the refugees which resulted in Kessaku Irim firing the station's commander.
In the aftermath of Taiie, the Motoyoshi Clan was deeply affected by the event; the massive loss of life, combined with the treatment of refugees became hot button issues for them politically. Melisson used the destruction of the Taiie System to manipulate Motoyoshi Tio and Motoyoshi Kiyoko to betray their mother Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko which led to the eventual creation of the United Outer Colonies. 2)
