|HTL CAMPAIGN, PHASE I : PRELUDE - THE ENSURED PROPHECY ( 23 chapters total )|
In late December, 2680, and early January, 2681, veteran military officers of the Union of Border Worlds, after a brief period of peace, unite to officially form the UBW Navy First Fleet's Carrier Battle Group Valkyrie (CVBG-V) in preparation for galactic aggression of any kind.
When the Border Worlds Union steps up in protection against Kilrathi insurgent hysteria, the Terran Confederation begins to lend a hand, sending the TCS Valley Forge (CV-53) Carrier Battle Group of the Third Fleet. Commanded by a newly-arrived, unstable CO with a shady past, Captain Vandermann, it heads into battle.
The TCS Valley Forge continues its fight against a pirate scourge in the Canewdon System, coming up against The Guild, the most notorious of the Landreich pirate clans.
As peace finally comes at hand, the Union of Border Worlds decides to split apart one of its most closely-knit squadrons: the Taipans. However, through the needs of the Battle Group Valkyrie, the battle-ready squadron may not be completely torn asunder.
On the BWS Freedom, a squadron falls under new leadership from an unlikely pilot as the Black Angels Squadron join Battle Group Valkyrie.
A war-torn Marine fighter veteran for the Border Worlds oversees the coordination of his squadron, tries to bury ghosts of his horrifying past, and is given some unexpected news...
Phalanx, a battle-weary pilot whos lost a friend, only wants to rest awhile at his home among the Border Worlds. However, Rear Admiral Hanton of the Battle Group Valkyrie (before leaving for the Landreich) interrupts his leave, dragging him back into galactic conflict.

Set on January 14th, 2681, as Battle Group Valkyrie is just a couple of days out of the Landreich. A few Confed liaison pilots join up with the group. Things dont prove to work out quite as planned.
Set on January 22nd & 25th, 2681. 2nd Lieutenants Lance Casey and Max "Maestro" Garrett arrive fresh from the Academy and Flight School on the Midway-class heavy fleet carrier TCS Midway (CVX-01 / CV-80) in the Nephele System in the veritable calm before the storm on the frontier.
Set on January 25th, 2681. An Alien (Intell codename : "Nephilim") fleet rips into the Tartarus System well within Border Worlds space, destroying the Confed carrier TCS Saratoga (CV-47) and her battle group.
Set on January 27th, 2681. The Nephilim hit Dakota, carrying out an onslaught of genocidal proportions by wiping out the colonies there. At last, Confed begins getting its act together.
A few of the transports that flee the Dakota System are rescued by the Confed 1st Torpedo Boat Squadron.
Reaffirming its strong presence in the Vega Sector, the Tanfen Corp tries to understand and react to the threat.
The Corp comes up with a plan, and decides to look out for its own interests first and foremost.
Set on January 28th, 2681. The 15th Confed Destroyer Squadron is dispatched to a rendezvous in Nephele, as ConFleet and Border Worlder ships alike gather to deal with the threat.

The Tanfen Corp, again looking out for its best interests, recalls its forces to protect its bases and facilities. The Nephilim continue advancing... as a terrorist attack is waged.
The terrorist attack is put down. The advancing Nephilim, however, rip through a Tanfen installation in the Hellespont System, butchering everyone on board.
