We attacked the Hyades Cluster with the largest fleet yet assembled by the Western Alliance. Hundreds of warships and scoutships. Thousands of fighters and bombers. Hundreds of troopships filled with a thousand or more soldiers and armored vehicles. We had filled the sky of Sunnydale with new constellations for years as we made our preparations. And we blotted out the stars when we opened fire on the Chinese defenses. And that was merely the first wave. The hammer that cracked the outer wall. Millions of troops on Sunnydale waited for news of our successful penetration, knowing that their time would come soon.
