This quilt depicts the ambush of Space Station Q4.M45.2163, commonly referred to as the Pleiades Station) by Vend'e attack ships. The station is guarded by a very small sentry and when attacked, nearby Sasu Sas ships came to their aide. This event started the battle between the area's native peoples, the Sasu Sas, and the invading Vend'e, a neighboring warrior species vying for more control in the area. Though the ambush happened nearly 75 ISSY's (intergalactic standardized space years) ago, hostilities persist between the two races.
