When the Lizardians began firing back, Marscalcus Kya entered the bridge with three Ortella security guards and held the king and fleet-captain Sauleius Jesan Cretacea at phaser point, claiming that his rule was at an end and that he would be taking the Rambo into conflict no more. Kya her plans sky rocketed with the arrival of the USS Areshkova, a Kelvin-Class under command of the Quadrantia Zazane captain, Sinhai Kakharis who targeted the Lizardians who soon retreated after their lead ship fell into orbit and crashed in the desert of Jatooine.
Meanwhile at the bridge of the Quadrantia, the two parties held each other at phaser point. The king was furious though Kya held her stature. Fleet-captain Cretacea tried to plead for diplomacy but unknown to the Marscalcus opened a transmission to the Areshkova who could listen as well. Realizing his king was in danger, Kakharis opened fire at the USS Quadrantia and beamed the king out. Kya, knew her plan had failed and opened fire at the operatives on the bridge while her security guards did as well. In the ensuing fire fight Kya escaped by using an escape pod and managed to escape as both the Quadrantia and Areshkova as they took damage from the retreating Lizardians.

The new uniforms are more formal and regal appearance and shows the continued military build-up under Rambert.

Over 15 starbases were constructed and act as border control points, ingoing and outgoing traffic have to pass by space station for inspection and request visums. Though they also act as defense perimeter stations and listening posts it allows the Rambo to dominate the Area of Total Control.
Amongst the personnel of Rambo Command the corridor became known as the "Gorge" and became the topic of the infamous and disastrous Franco-Rambo Summit of 2815/19 AQF. The disastrous meeting led directly into the Crossing Line-incident, a year later after the summit in 20 AQF.
