Indeed, the Prix government and commercial interests became willing collaborators with the occupiers, aiding the planet’s transformation into a major re-supply hub for the invaders. It would, however, have severe consequences for the population in later years when the Liaos retook Prix and set about punishing the “traitors.”
 Whereas most of the units brutalized on Betelgeuse fled back to Andurien, the Third Defenders opted to pull back to Prix where they hoped to repair and re-arm before resuming the fight against the Confederation, at the very least guarding the significant stockpiles established on the world in support of the Grand Base operation. Two battalions had already repaired and departed for Andurien, leaving a single Defender battalion and another of garrison troops holding the world.
McCarron’s had little desire to cooperate with the Defenders’ schedule, however, and two regiments chased the unit to the cache world, catching the remaining battalion in the midst of repair operations in June 3032. The mercenaries swiftly overran a number of supply caches and then moved against the Andurien facilities. Despite being grossly outnumbered, the Andurien troops put up a spirited resistance, holding out for just shy of three weeks. No Andurien ’Mechs remained functional after three weeks of bloody carnage, and McCarron’s commandeered the remaining supplies and equipment.
The mercenaries respected the Defenders’ courage and determination, and when elements of the Maskirovka sought to torture the prisoners Colonel Marcus Barton intervened to guarantee their safety under the conventions of war, arranging their repatriation via ComStar.
