The Eagle-class WarShip FWLS Percival went rogue in early February 3068, and on the 4th of February the Percival launched a raid on Skye. Accompanying the Percival were troops in the colours of the Sirian Lancers who launched a ground assault on the planet, battling the local Skye forces for two days before withdrawing. This prompted the Duke of Skye, Robert Kelswa-Steiner to call on all Lyran Alliance units loyal to the Isle of Skye to come to the defence of the Isle, and to declare war on the Free Worlds League in retaliation for the raid.
On the 26th of December 3073, after the assassination of Archon Peter Steiner-Davion, the resistance leader Devlin Stone managed to convince the government of Skye to accept assistance from the allied forces which had met at Tukayyid earlier. As a result, three regiments of allied troops landed on Skye on the 25th of March 3074. The inevitable Word of Blake invasion came a few months later, on the 27th of June 3074, and the conflict soon ground into a stalemate that lasted weeks. The stalemate was finally broken when Devlin Stone led an ad hoc battalion of allied forces in a flanking action that struck at the command centre of the Blakist 3rd Division, capturing the 3rd's Commanding Officer, Precentor Craig Callen, and forcing the suddenly leaderless and thinly-stretched Word of Blake forces to withdraw. The success on Skye led Stone to declare that the next target for liberation would be Hesperus II.
