For The Republic
In YC 110, while Tibus Heth still preached militant patriotism at home, the Ishukone corporation invited Gallente representatives to heal the rift which had developed after the theft that ended the Crielere Project.
The Gallente delegation was escorted to the Malkalen V Ishukone headquarters by admiral Alexander Noir, the oldest still serving navy officer and last living veteran of the Caldari-Gallente war.
That highly respected man, who had been known as an advocate of peace during most of his life, shocked everyone that day when he rammed his Nyx supercarrier into the Ishukone station where the summit was supposed to take place. Six hundred thousand people, including Noir’s crew, the Gallente delegation and the CEO of Ishukone, Otro Gariushi, died in the unexpected attack. In his last broadcast, Alexander Noir claimed that his final act was for the victims of Hueromont and Nouvelle Rouvenor.
Immediately Tibus Heth and his Provist movement seized upon the incident and stoked the flames of patriotic anti-Gallente sentiment. Within the shortest time, all major corporations pledged themselves to the Providence Directorate and the hitherto fiercely partisan Caldari united under a dictatorship with Tibus Heth as leader. The opportunity for the Provist-ruled State to act soon came when the Minmatar Elder Fleet and Thukker Tribe blockaded the CONCORD headquarters in Yulai and proceeded to strike at the heart of the Amarr Empire.
With CONCORD occupied elsewhere, Tibus Heth mobilized almost the whole Caldari navy to move into Luminaire and immediately attack Caldari Prime. He was aided in this surprise attack by the traitorous Gallente admiral Anvent Eturrer who disabled the Federation’s early warning and defense networks. Unprepared, Federation defense fleets were swept aside and the twenty million soldiers committed to the ground attack overwhelmed Gallente forces completely. To guard the planet, the Caldari stationed the Leviathan Shiigeru and a massive support fleet in orbit.
From this moment onwards. The Gallente and Caldari have been locked in a bitter war. Likewise, the Minmatar and Amarr Empire battle over their own territories.
