On August 10, near the end of Premier Fiihar Jivirik III's term, a massive information leak reveals Jivirik's underhanded tactics as Premier to hold power, confirming the existence of the Imperial Security Bureau, many accounts of corruption, and the coercion of opposition parties to stay quiet when debating decisions in Parliament. Massive protests erupt across the Empire, and rebel groups, especially Heer Stevekelese and Borderlander nationalists, use the opportunity to rise in armed revolt.
Margrave Kirvan Jivirik and his officials make a narrow escape from the March of Stekeveelia. The March's government collapses on August 12.
War in the colonies
Drodo colonial forces, having retreated to a line around New Aratacia, successfully surge forward on August 14 and retake a large amount of territory both within the March and in Borderlander territory. Vengeful officers begin to order the massacre of civilians on both fronts, leading to renewed violence and resistance as civilians rush to protect themselves and government regiments begin to revolt against their commanders due to the orders.
The Great Riot begins
A massive, bloody riot emerges on Coron on August 16, starting when an anti-Jivirik protest on a major plaza in Imperial City is run down by a cavalry charge made by IDMP officers, killing hundreds of people. The riot continues for days, damaging billions of credits worth of property and killing thousands of people. The Great Riot will last until September 20.
Intervention in Drodo territories
On August 19, an international coalition led by the French Empire denounces the Jivirik government's actions, and invades the Heer Stekeveel Territories with an army led by the famed Drodo admiral Cesterity Isordon, who had until now been in the service of the French Colonial Empire.
Grand Commonwealth founded
On August 20, The Grand Commonwealth of Sovereign States, a galactic government for the Milky Way, is founded by France and the DCP. All powers in the Milky Way recognized by France and the DCP are offered a seat. In accordance with the terms of the Peace of Halcyon, Wormulus II and Alexandre I are named "Protectors of the Milky Way" and jointly assume responsibility for protecting the Milky Way and all of its states. Further in accordance with the Peace of Halcyon, the DCP's Core territories become international territory held by the Grand Commonwealth of Sovereign States.
Drodo Colonies captured
From August 25 to 27, Cesterity captures the whole of the Drodoian Quadrant Colonies rapidly, without much resistance, having most government troops rally to him through his force of charisma and their dislike of Jivirik (and their superiors), and rallying the rebels to his cause by promising a fair, peaceful settlement for all of them once Cesterity takes power. French fighters pummeled the positions of those forces that remained hostile. This was the extent of Coalition objectives, but Cesterity had other ideas. Leaving the coalition forces behind, but having his own huge army at his back, he made the controversial decision to overthrow the Jivirik government at Coron.
Isordon moves to the Milky Way
Cesterity moves his entire armada through the wormholes in the Quadrant Colonies into the mainland of the Drodo Empire without resistance. More government troops in the mainland begin to join his side as he does. He arrives on August 30.
Also on September 19, Cesterity and his armada come into orbit over Coron, and Cesterity personally leads a brigade of infantry into the then-besieged Imperial Parliament, disposing of resistance and dissolving the Jivirik administration at gunpoint and making himself interim dictator. His first action as dictator was to put Jivirik under arrest, and charge him with treason.
Great Riot ends
Cesterity orders the IDMP garrison on Coron to stand down, or else to face destruction. They comply, and soon the riots die down on September 20. Occasional skirmishes would continue until September 22.
Amid the turmoil and controversy of the Drodoian Crisis, Alexandre I of France marries Anastasia Hisan, Princess of the Greater Hal'Sk Empire and second in line to the Imperial throne, cementing the alliance between the two monarchies on September 28. French troops remain in many Hal'Sk imperial territories to ensure stability in the crumbling empire, though face serious unrest in a number of provinces. Alexandre draws serious criticism for not setting a clear date for a French withdrawal.
Cesterity, donning the modest title of "Interim Dictator of the Empire", reestablishes formal relations with the French Empire on November 8, and begins work on reconstructing infrastructure destroyed by the anti-Jivirik revolts. While willing to work with the temporary dictator, Alexandre I pressures the administration to set a date for elections and Isordon stepping down. The date is set for 2809 with the approval of the Drodo parliament.

The Heer Stevekel Confederation is restored, and the Borderlander people (on the Drodo side) are given an autonomous region, and work is begun at finding a way to invent viable Human-Drodo reproduction and hybrids. French troops complete their withdrawal from both of these territories on December 10. Cesterity additionally pressures the Republic of Galactica to instate similar laws in regards to Borderlanders.
At the final meeting of Allied High Command on December 1, the organization is finally dissolved after the terms of the Peace of Halcyon were successfully carried out.

Emperor dies of old age
Riahk I dies of old age on December 30. His widowed son, Galokar Hisan, ascends to the throne amidst political unrest and upheaval. He immediately marries Elise Dekan, a powerful noblewoman, and pledges to continue the Greater Hal'Sk Empire's wars to maintain their colonies. Concerns permeate every level of Hal'Sk society about Galokar I's ability to rule, and the possibility of a Valéry heir to the throne should he die.
Archduke Fiihar Jivirik III is seen guilty of all charges of treason, corruption, and violation of sapient rights on January 17. While most would've been sentenced to death for such a list of crimes, Fiihar had the good fortune of being an aristocrat, from a powerful family. The Archduke was instead stripped of his title and sentenced to exile, swearing never to return to the Drodo Empire under pain of death. Fiihar would then gather his personal fortune and make the controversial decision to move to the Draconid Imperium. The Jivirik clan is released from house arrest and allowed to go freely on January 18.
Imperial Security Bureau dismantled
On January 21, The "Imperial Security Bureau", established by Jivirik, is dissolved by executive order. In a well-coordinated operation, Cesterity has the secret headquarters of the ISB raided by government troops, and additionally arrests all ISB agents that are away from base in the Empire. The operation was a complete success and lasts 12 hours. Additionally, Cesterity informs Alexandre I of France of the recent operation, and provides him a list of suspected ISB agents operating in French territory. The episode gives the French imperial administration some much needed reprieve.
