Exploiting the chaos into which Anton Marik’s Revolt had plunged the Free Worlds League, the Lyran Commonwealth staged several raids into Marik territory. Although most were small unit raids mounted merely to test Marik resolve, others targeted specific objectives such as FWLM supply depots and vital manufacturing plants. Other attacks were more involved affairs, intended by Commonwealth planners to pin down troops to allow smaller Lyran forces unimpeded access to their targets.
On Nestor, the Fifth Orloff Grenadiers came under attack by the Fourth Donegal Guards. Though they failed to capture the Selathon industrial complex, they blooded the Grenadiers and forced Captain-General Janos Marik to divert forces to the Lyran border, thereby extending the civil war against his rebellious brother.
 Ever open for opportunities to exploit, the possibilities offered by a distracted Free Worlds prompted Archon Katrina Steiner to keep a close eye on the border despite her own difficulties in Skye and the preparations for a renewed offensive against the Draconis Combine.
The raid on Nestor was one of a succession of probing attacks carried out by units such as the Second and Third Republicans on the orders of the canny archon, but the Fifth Brigade of the Fusiliers of Oriente turned back the raid with minimal losses. The clash was, however, only the first that Lew Konoslev and his troops would face over the next few years.
