After the Teladi Company had reconnected with Ianamus Zura, they sent out a fleet of scouts to seek potential new trade partners and re-establish old business relationships. It took the fleet some time before they encountered the Xenon that were operating deep within this system, far from the Gate. The scouts soon came to the realisation that they were surrounded by hostile forces, and at that point they were far from any reinforcements. Their natural flight instinct came to the fore and they hastily retreated towards the Gate that lead back to their homeworld. Many ships were picked off by intercepting Xenon along the way, but a few ships made it back. Unfortunately, their failed exploration drew the Xenon closer to the Jump Gate, and Xenon attacks have now become a common occurrence.
