Description:

[3067] The Marian Hegemony settled the nearby world of Valerius in early 3064. While dozens of colony ships made the trek to and from the new world, military transports secretly built a logistics depot there, preparing for the invasion of the Federation. Surprisingly, though Federation President McIntyre knew an invasion of his nation was inevitable, none found out about the secret base on Valerius until VI Legio dropped onto Blantleff in January 3066.

Caesar Julius O'Reilly had intended to use more forces for this first wave, but was forces to use additional resources to put down small insurrections and apparent Pirate raids throughout his realm. Nevertheless, the first invasion wave was brilliantly executed, and Blantleff fell in mere weeks. It didn't hurt that the Circinians saw the Marian invaders as liberators as much as conquerors.

Federation forces disguised as elements of IV Legio attacked the unit on Blantleff in May 3066, though by this time the masquerade had been discovered. Still somewhat under-strength at the time, VI Legio counterattacked with a passion that surprised friend and foe alike. The Federation force disintegrated within two weeks.

VI Legio rebuilt with equipment captured from this enemy force and remains on guard - though a state of war still technically exists between the Marian Hegemony and the Circinus Federation - the fighting has been over for more than a year.
