The Imperial Navy is outraged by the arrogance of the Kingdom of Colores. Daring to fire on an Imperial ship is an act that simply demands retaliation. The fact that the ship in question knowingly violated Colores space is irrelevant. Imperial superiority is not to be challenged. Out here, Uppity third rate nations or colonies that have somehow managed to offend the mighty Imperium beg for lenient terms, a blood price is paid and the Sector returns to normal. It is simply the way things are done, and the Kingdom of Colores needs a stern reminder.
The Imperial Navy has diverted a squadron patrolling nearby to seize a mining station and hold it until reparations are paid. Luckily for the miners, the station offered no resistance.
There are still Imperial troops on the mining colony, and they have refused to surrender. They have the miners and the installation as a shield, plus it is certain that the Imperium will send a relief force once higher command is aware of this disaster.
For the Kingdom of Colores this was not the near bloodless victory of the first encounter. Losses are keenly felt by the new space force. The only hope is to keep the forward momentum and then sue for peace on KC terms.
If only they could lay their hands on a larger ship to add to the firepower of the fleet. Anyone know where a BB could be had?
