The Battle of White-Rim
Main Article: Battle of White-Rim
The first major battle of the Cirin-Darani War and the first time that Darani lives were lost in home space, the Battle of White-Rim was supposed to be a trap, designed to catch the Cirin Defence Force off-guard, however the Alliance fleet jumped directly on into the midst of the Republic fleet and the battle quickly turned into a bloody furball. The result is considered a draw at best, however the actions of one R.A.S.F. [[Starship#Fighter|fighter] pilot, Kari Tyrell, saved the Republic Fleet's carrier from being flanked by a group of fighters from an Alliance carrier and earned her the title "Hero of White-Rim".

A routine stopover by the R.S. Antalya to refuel at Otago Station near the Tihirau Nebula which quickly turned into a nightmare. At a Strategic level, the result could be classified as a draw for both sides but politically the attackers can call it a victory.
