In 3068 the Hydra squadron discover by an inspection of Taurian convoys nuclear warheads and lots of ammunition. The blockade of the Pleiades continued until 3069. The command were ordered back to New Syrtis to counter any Capellan attack. In a naval battle above the planet they were able to destroy two Union-class Dropships, a Leopard and a Triumph. During that action the mercenaries lost the Intruder-class Ambuscade.

Though they had taken extensive damage over New Syrtis during Operation: Thunderstrike, by 3079 the Medusans had nearly rebuilt their entire force. The Medusans split their forces, with one squadron covering New Syrtis while the other guarded Firgrove and its repair yard. In addition, the AFFS High Command requested that their senior command staff serve as instructors at the Albion Military Academy.
