No Stars in Sight
Initial attempts by Red Sands Mercenaries to secure an invasion foothold in the moons lightly inhabited highland regions bogged down badly in the face of well-coordinated resistance by local defence forces.
In order to overcome this unexpected obstacle Red Sands redirected their efforts away from population centres and transport hubs onto military and civilian communications. One of the most important of these was Relay Station Bravo. Caught off guard the colony’s defence forces were barely able to reinforce the position before Red Sands attacked.
At stake was the whole campaign, without it the locals could be destroyed in detail, if it remained functional the invasion would be doomed.
