October: Katherine Steiner-Davion tricks Yvonne into installing her as ruler of the Federated Commonwealth, after creating massive political pressure through manipulated polls and news. As Katherine Steiner-Davion already has a power base in the Lyran Alliance, she mainly resides on New Avalon.
Nationalistic tensions between Lyrans and FedSuns are growing rapidly. As a cultural symbol, the Federated Suns return into the hearts and minds of it's citizens.
May 24th: The First Circuit of ComStar orders Victor Steiner-Davion to inspect all ComGuards along the Lyran-Jade Falcon border.
On Solaris VII, massive brawls between Lyran and FedSun hooligans appear regularly at duels.
August 15th: Due to sabotage, the Lyran-FedSun duel, Victor Vandergriff versus Michael Searcy, leaves the arena. As nobody trusts the other, everybody tries to contain the fight, but nevertheless shootouts between stables of different nationality begin. This turns into open warfare in Solaris City.
August 15th: Katherine Steiner-Davion orders ComStar to pull their 56th Division from Solaris VII.
August 19th: One battalion of the 32nd Lyran Guards arrives on Solaris VII as peacekeepers. They are decimated within hours.

November 3rd: The live-feed HPG-connection between Tharkad and New Avalon is completed. Katherine Steiner-Davion will use it in the following years as a powerful political tool for propaganda and speeches.
November 11th: Major-General Weintraub from the 8th FedCom RCT sent a letter to Katherine Steiner-Davion, asking for clarification of his orders. She answers, that Kathil is a very important planet and that he should just follow his orders. Duke VanLee arranges food shortages for the 8th FedCom RCT to annoy them. Weintraub reacts by deploying his troops to guard the Hall of Nobles against "rioters".
November 16th: The murderer of Andrea Christifori is acquitted, by using his political connections. Archer Christifori begins with preparations to drive the 15th Arcturan Guards off-planet. He is politically anti-Katherine, but not yet pro-Victor. Duke VanLee orders the Kathil CMM to infiltrate their HQ and arrest all officers of the 8th FedCom RCT in a covert operation. The commandos fail and open warfare between the 8th FedCom RCT and the Kathil CMM breaks out.
November 24th: The Lyran government press secretary denies that there are any open revolts against the Archon’s reign. The 8th FedCom RCT attacks the 2nd NAIS Training Cadre and conquers one of the microwave power transmitters for the orbital docks.
November 28th: The Avalon-class battlecruiser IFS Robert Davion is conquered by the Lyran members of the crew and infantry of the 8th FedCom RCT. After cautiously-worded encouragements by Katherine Steiner-Davion to solve this problem by violence, Lord Roland (the commander of the Lyran troops) executes the whole Dresari family on Kentares IV. Rumors surface that an estimated 5,000 civilians are dead or wounded.
December 5th: Arthur Steiner-Davion is apparently assassinated with a bomb, in the midst of a speech. But he really is abducted. James Sandoval suspects the Draconis Combine and orders a military counter-attack. Four planets are engaged in an open rebellion against Katherine’s rule. Five more might join after hearing of Arthur’s death. Violent anti-Steiner protests on Clinton. OberstFelix Blücher of the 15th Arcturan Guards is attacked with a bomb, apparently by Davion terrorists. Indeed it was planted by Lyran soldiers who want to escalate the situation. Blücher reacts with mass-arrests.
December 8th: Open rebellions start on Kathil, Benet III, Kentares IV, Demeter, and Bromhead, among few others. Victor Steiner-Davion leaves ComStar. In a public speech, he declares Katherine unfit for rule and declares his intention to depose her. Upon hearing this speech, mass-protests break out on Thorin. Archer Christifori mobilizes his militia and begins a guerrilla-war against the 15th Arcturan Guards. Oberst Blücher reacts by declaring martial-law.
December 29th: Katherine Steiner-Davion sends a secret directive to all Commanding Officers of the Lyran Alliance Forces, declaring war upon Victor’s reinstated Federated Suns. All private HPG-messages are furthermore declared illegal.
January 22nd: The 1st Thorin Regiment (their strength slightly at two companies) leaves Thorin and launches a surprise-attack on the Beta battalion of the 15th Arcturan Guards on Muphrid. They are able to salvage most of their military equipment.
February 2nd: The 1st Thorin Regiment attacks and defeats Alpha battalion of the 15th Arcturan Guards on Thorin. They capitulate and Oberst Felix Blücher negotiates the retreat of the remains of Alpha battalion and of Gamma battalion from Muphrid.
February 11th: The 1st Thorin Regiment defeats the Alcor Home Guard and establishes a pro-victor resistance-cell on this planet. It receives orders by Victor Steiner-Davion to either negotiate a contract with Snord's Irregulars that brings them on victor's side, or at least ensure that they won't fight for Katherine. The pro-Victor LIC agent Anton Gramash is assigned to Archer Christifori's unit for this mission as intelligence coordinator. Bryceland and Sirdar have been conquered by pro-Victor forces. Confirmed fights on Algol, An Ting, Alcyone, Demeter.
March: The family Yalos, the rulers of the planet Mayetta in the Draconis March, declares themselves in an opportunistic change pro-Victor. As they are attacked by the pro-Katherine Milligan DMM and Bremond DMM, Kirk Yalos offers Tancred Sandoval control over the Mayetta DMM in exchange for military support. The FSS Melissa Davion defects and begins it's search for Victor.
April 15th: The 1st Thorin Regiment reaches Odessa. To discredit Snord's Irregulars as unpatriotic and unreliable, Duke Nicholas Fisk orders the Odessa militia to attack the 1st Thorin Regiment on their own. They are decimated and driven back.
April 18th: The 1st Thorin Regiment and Snord's Irregulars suspect each other of treason and start to fight to exact revenge for their dead. Snord's Irregulars are driven back into their base and the 1st Thorin Regiment lays siege.
April 24th: On Newtown Square, Victor and the 39th Avalon Hussars fight the pro-Katherine 14th Donegal Guards. They win narrowly, when the Com Guards244th Division arrive. Tancred Sandoval prepares a political trick: He declares Woodbine neutral, knowing that this will prompt Katherine to attack. Afterward he can free the planet, securing the loyalty and political support of it's rulers.
April 26th: Snord's Irregulars are reduced to one understrength battalion. (The 1st Thorin has lower casualties, as they were able to salvage material.)
May 1st-3rd: The 1st Thorin finds evidence of the ploy to trap them in a no-win-situation. They present the evidence to Snord's Irregulars and declare a unilateral ceasefire.
May 4th: Wolverton's Highlanders attempt to destroy the weakened 1st Thorin. However the 1st Thorin and Snord's Irregulars join forces. Wolverton's Highlanders are wiped out. Thus, the 1st Thorin accidentally conquered Odessa.
October 9th: The LAS Arthur Steiner-Davion disappears under unclear circumstances, after encountering a non-standard jumping signature. The 1st Crucis Lancers have joined Tancred Sandoval's task force. He absolutely wants to win the support of Duke Ferdinand Rein of Woodbine, so he plans to use the influence of his aunt Jessica Sandoval-Groell to postpone his fathers arrival until his position is strong enough.
December 12th: The last survivors of the 1st Coventry Jaegers are defeated, when they try to break the siege. James Sandoval reaches Woodbine. As he declares, that Woodbine is only one world among many that he has to care about, Duke Ferdinand Rein sides with Tancred Sandoval.
February: Victor's task force (39th Avalon Hussars, 244th ComGuard Division, Foreign Legion) tries to conquer Alarion. They prepare for a huge battle, but General Maria Esteban has withdrawn the defenders, creating her own task force for a counter-attack. Alarion is conquered without a fight, but proves to be useless for Victor: The only valuable installation are the shipyards and Victor's task force has neither the resources nor the time to use them. The 39th Avalon Hussars are left as a garrison to secure them nevertheless.
March: Victor's task force is on the way to the Skye Theater. He wants to reinforce it and schedules a rendezvous on York with the 6th Crucis Lancers and 17th Skye Rangers. But Maria Esteban is on his heels: She manipulates the 17th Skye Rangers to return to Skye instead.
March 6th: Katherine Steiner-Davion broadcasts a fake press conference (actually no journalists are present) to the whole Lyran Alliance and Federated Commonwealth. She states that the war has tuned down and that she hopes, that he will soon be over, for the sake of the common good.
March 13rd: Victor's troops (6th Crucis, 244th Com Guard, Foreign Legion and the Avalon-class Melissa Steiner-Davion) are resting on York and prepare to launch a new offensive, when they are attacked by Maria Esteban's task force (11th Arcturan Guards, 1st Alarion Jaegers, Alarion APM, Carlisle APM and two Fox-class corvettes). Victor's forces are outnumbered and their only chance is a hasty withdrawal to Halfway.
March 15th: Omi Kurita is assassinated by a trap, set up by Dancing Joker. She dies with Victor's name on her lips. Theodore Kurita orders the immediate halt to all travels and interstellar communications crossing the border of the Draconis Combine. The Dancing Joker saw this coming and stays on Luthien for the next few years with a false identity.
May 14th: The 244th Com Guard Division destroys the Halfway Militia and conquers Halfway.
May 23rd: Victor sets up a strategic conference in an empty brothel on Halfway with the commanders of his task force, Morgan Kell, KhanPhelan Kell, General Caradoc Trevana and Archer Christifori. (Nobody would suspect them there.) The 23rd Arcturan Guards are on the way to reinforce Victor's task force. Victor and Katherine receive intelligence, that Clan Jade Falcon has attacked the Lyran Alliance. Katherine Steiner-Davion asks Comstar to activate the ComGuards, but Precentor Martial Gavin Dow refuses: Clan Wolf and Clan Ghost Bear are still a threat. Katherine decides to counter the Jade Falcons by shuffling the troops already in the region. She explicitly leaves the Arc-Royal Defense Cordon out of any plannings: Morgan Kell's domain, his problems. Victor Steiner-Davion set's up a two-pronged task force to repel the Jade Falcons: Clan Wolf-in-Exile will keep the Jade Falcons busy within the Lyran territory. Meanwhile Archer Christifori's task force will unite with pro-Katherine Lyran units and attack the Jade Falcon occupation zone. This is Operation Audacity.
June 23rd: The aerospace units of the 6th Crucis reunite with Victor's task force on Clinton Victor has pulled a political trick, by asking Robert Kelswa-Steiner for permission to attack Hesperus II. But he never had this in mind and knew that this information would trickle to Katherine, prompting her to rearrange her forces to repel this attack. Instead, Victor's task force temporarily breaks up into the single units, rapidly attacking a dozen unimportant planets to further irritate the Lyrans. The pro-Victor 5th Syrtis Fusiliers have conquered Axton.
July 6th: The 1st Thorin Regiment arrives on Graceland and the 74th Battle Cluster allows them to take over the batchall of the ComGuards. They defeat the 74th Battle by luring it into a trap and taking out its Star Colonel, so he declares defeat. Christifori takes some of their Mechs and pilots as Isorla. Lamda Galaxy retreats into the occupation zone.
July 30th: Rho Galaxy attacks Dustball in the ARD, because of the presence of the 4th Wolf Guards. The 7th Falcon Regulars and the Jade Falcon Eyrie win the bidding. The rest of the galaxy stays in orbit and waits. KhanPhelan Kell leads the battle himself. His strategy is to bind the whole galaxy by prolonging the battle and wearing the Jade Falcons down bit by bit. The 388th ComGuard Division arrives on Dustball to aid the Wolves.
August: The ComGuards destroy 2 Trinaries of Rho Galaxy in a narrow pass. This turns the tide in the battle. Rho Galaxy is defeated and leaves Dustball.
August 12th: The understrength 15th Arcturan Guards (reinforced by the Gacrux FTM and Neerabup MTM) arrive in the Melissia system at a pirate jump point, even closer than the Jade Falcons. General Adam Steiner orders them to guard the landing zone, to keep it secure for an emergency evacuation.
August 16th: After two days of heavy fighting on Melissia, the 3rd Alliance Guards and 6th Donegal Guards are almost wiped out. The Jade Falcons refuse to fall for Bryan's trap and instead concentrate on eliminating the Lyran units. Finally, the Jade Falcons use a Broadsword to drop Elementals right onto the bunker. The Lyran HQ is wiped out within minutes. General Adam Steiner activates the 15th Arcturan Guards and orders all troops to evacuate from Melissia.
August 26th: Katherine Steiner presents a new memorial on New Avalon to remind of the "betrayal" of the 1st Davion Guards. In a press conference she states her hope, that the quiet last weeks were a sign of an end to this war. After an HPG-conversation, Thomas Marik agrees to serve as Victor's reputation at the Whitting Conference, so he would have a right to claim speech-time.
August 29th: A single cluster of Omega Galaxy is fighting Adam Steiner's troops. The rest of Omega Galaxy is only days away. Archer Christifori's task force lands and forces them to retreat via dropship to another continent. Archer Christifori explains his and Victor's plan to Adam Steiner, but he is reluctant. He only agrees after reading a personal letter from Victor Steiner-Davion: Victor asks him not to prejudge him from Katherine's propaganda. Victor states that he has sent reinforcements for the Lyran Alliance, and not played political games.
August 30th: The Jade Falcons are defeated on Blue Hole. Star Colonel Daniel Kyle is taken isorla. Archer Christifori and Adam Steiner set up a plan to draw the attention from Clan Jade Falcon: They will both randomly attack planets in the occupation zone. Then Archer's task force will beat the Falcon Guards on Twycross, hopefully enraging the Jade Falcons enough to disobey orders and follow Archer's units. Both task forces will reunite on Blackjack and try to hold out until the Jade Falcons stopped their offensive on the Lyran Alliance. Anton Gramash captures an agent of the Clan Wolf-watch and hands him over to Phelan Kell. Phelan gives the agent a message: He invites KhanVlad Ward to join his attack on Sudeten, the capital of Clan Jade Falcon in the Inner Sphere. This is a trick, as Phelan has no intention to attack Sudeten. He knows that Vlad has two choices: Either he will warn Marthe Pryde, prompting the retreat of some of her forces, or he will attack the Jade Falcons, forcing them to retreat troops as well.
August 31st: The combined forces of Christifori and Adam Steiner leave Chapultepec. Omega Galaxy is granted a pause to repair and re-equip its troops on Chapultepec. Khan Marthe Pryde orders to attack the ComGuards on Crimond and Rasalgethi, to keep the Exile-Wolves busy. Furthermore, conquering Rasalgethi would allow Clan Jade Falcon to bypass the Free Rasalhague Republic and its ComGuards-defenders on its way to Terra.
October 4th: Christifori's task force defeats a solahma trinary of Rho Galaxy on Roadside and conquers the planet. The ammunition-factory is accidently almost destroyed. One battalion is left as garrison. Adam Steiner's task force realizes, that the Jade Falcons couldn't possibly have their base on the main continents.
October 17th: The main battle on Black Earth begins, as the Lyrans are attacking the Falcon base. The Lyrans are surprisingly reinforced by the 1st Wolf Strike Grenadiers. Christifori's task force arrives in the Butler system where the Aegis-battlecruiser CJF Black Talon is undergoing repairs in a ship-yard. The Lyrans cripple it with a massive fighter attack, using the experience of CommodoreLee Fullerton. Christifori sends a HPG-message to Phelan Kell: He asks him to send a boarding crew to salvage the battlecruiser, as none of his personnel has the necessary experience.
October 26th: Adam Steiner's task force attacks Malibu, but the local government is unwilling to support them. (Steiner speculates that they are tired of war.) They fight against the 8th Falcon Regulars on the surface of an asteroid, over the control of the nadir recharge-station. The Jade Falcon Star Colonel retreats after a short and brutal fight. The 74th Battle Cluster is attacking Crimond and Phelan Kell is countering them. Anton Gramash informs Phelan Kell about the broader picture of the war. The 39th ComGuard Division is on the way to Crimond. Jade Falcon forces are about to attack Rasalgethi. The defenders are Brion's Legion and the Rasalgethi PTM.
October 30th: Christifori's task force is attacking Twycross. Their plan is to beat the single Falcon Guards trinary in a fair fight. But a lazy tech failed to repair the weapon-control circuits in Star ColonelRavill Pryde's Timber Wolf, prompting him to accidently break zellbrigen. The Jade Falcons are overwhelmed with massive firepower. Christifori sends records of the Jade Falcons dishonorable defeat to Khan Marthe Pryde to challenge her to a reaction.
November 3rd: Jade Falcons attack Twycross to exact revenge: the rest of the Falcon Guards, the 9th Talon and 1st Falcon Hussars, the whole force being at least 12 Trinaries strong. Although outraged, they don't attack blindly: The Jade Falcons perform a combat-drop into a sand-storm, whereas their dropships still proceed their landing, faking a standard landing so the spherers will suspect the attack from the wrong direction. Indeed the Jade Falcons attack them from behind and a bloody battle ensues. Finally the Jade Falcons are beaten. Christifori sends the highest-ranking survivor Star CaptainDiana Pryde back to Marthe Pryde with the message, that he is not finished yet. The 1st and 3rd regiment of Archer's Avengers suffered heavy losses, the 2nd regiment and 20th Arcturan Guards suffered minor losses.
November 4th: On the eve of the third Whitting Conference, Duke George Hasek tries to talk to Katherine. He hoped, that they could together find a way to stop the fighting in the Capellan March, which was essentially neutral in the FedCom Civil War. But Katherine is not in the mood to listen. She offers George Hasek to sit next to her during the Whitting Conference (to demonstrate his support for her side) and to talk about this issue later. He declines and angrily questions her loyalty to her own people. She reminds him, that his people would have to suffer for his decisions.
November 6th: KhanMarthe Pryde decides to halt her offensive to stop Christifori's task force. But she will leave troops on the conquered Lyran worlds as garrison.
November 14th: PrecentorGavin Dow gives Katherine Steiner-Davion the information that Omi Kurita is dead. At the eve of the election of the new First Lord, Katherine tries to get the help of the Star League to end the rebellion of her "war-hungry" brother. Because of his deal with Thomas Marik, Victor Steiner-Davion is allowed to counter this with his own arguments. In his speech, he clarifies that there had been numerous other times he could have started a rebellion against her rule, if he were indeed this war-hungry. Furthermore he openly accuses her of complicity in the murder of their mother. Finally he asks the politicians to remember the manipulations and back-room-politics they have witnessed. Do they really want such a person as their First Lady? Katherine suddenly loses the political support for the election. Katherine informs Victor that his beloved Omi is dead, causing him a nervous breakdown.
December 12th: Archer Christifori's task force arrives in the Blackjack system. The 1st regiment of Archer's Avengers is understrength, the 2nd has minor losses, the 3rd is almost wiped out and 20th Arcturan Guards are at 75% strength. The 8th Provisional Garrison Cluster is stationed on Blackjack. The 4th Striker Cluster and the CJF White Talon intercept the task force in the Blackjack system. Both Jade Falcon units unite on Blackjack and immediately start smaller skirmishes against the spherers. Adam Steiner decides abruptly to leave Hot Springs in the cover of a thunderstorm. Phelan Kell defeats Sigma Galaxy. The 4th Wolf Guards had tricked the Jade Falcons by faking higher losses.
December 19th: The 1st Falcon Hussars have arrived in the Blackjack-system and are on the way to the planet.
December 21st: Archer contacts the CWiE Black Paw to start an orbital bombardement of the Jade Falcons. Immediately afterwards, the Black Paw is engaged by the CJF White Talon. The White Talon is destroyed and the Black Paw suffers heavy damages. Adam Steiner's task force arrives in the Blackjack system.
unknown date: In early 3065, Katherine Steiner-Davion deployed additional LAAF forces and mercenaries to the Skye Province, to quell secessionist tendencies. Operatives of Lohengrin, the Molehunters and Loki are deployed as well, to counter any uprising. In some systems all interstellar travel was shut down, to suppress informations about war-preparations of the Lyran Alliance.
February 21st: The 244th ComGuard Division is reduced to about half a regiment: 15 'Mechs, about 20 tanks, some Battle Armor and infantry, some aerospace fighters and helicopters. Victor’s forces attack simultaneously on the ground and in space. In space, the inexperience of the pro-Katherine militia aerospace forces and the fire-power of the FSS Melissa Davion decide the battle. As soon as the battle in space has ended, Victor is extracted from Tikonov with a heavy escort of multiple DropShips and aerospace fighters. On the ground, sheer desperation drives Victor’s forces to victory, when they are attacked by orbital fire. Most of Victor’s units and the 11th Arcturan Guards suffer heavy losses.
March 15th: Adam Steiner sends a personal video-message to Katherine Steiner-Davion. He declares that he is not confident, that Katherine has the best for her nation in mind. Accordingly he officially declares the Melissia Theater neutral and independent from the rule of the Lyran Alliance. Katherine orders MarshallNondi Steiner to arrest Adam, but she says, that there are simply no units available for this task. Furthermore, Adam Steiner would be too popular for such a move.
June 15th: The 22nd Skye Rangers sneak into the Hesperus system in preparation of an invasion. First they sneak to Hesperus V and then Hesperus III, where they hide and wait for the right time for a surprise attack on the space-port of Hesperus II.
June 23rd: An aerospace patrol of the 12th Hesperus militia (deployed on Hesperus III) finds the landed DropShips of the 22nd Skye Rangers, but is destroyed before they can issue a warning.
June 28th: A task force of the Skye rebels arrives in the Hesperus-system: 2 Fox-class corvettes (the Indefatigable and the Illustrious) and the 4th Skye Rangers. They are engaged by the loyalist Avalon-class Simon Davion, which destroys the Illustrious. In return, the Simon Davion is conquered by boarding troops from the Indefatigueable. The 22nd Skye Rangers start from Hesperus III and reach Hesperus II later that day. They proceed with the alternative attack plan and attack the agricultural region of Hesperus II, to lure the defenders (Gray Death Legion, 15th Lyran Guards, 36th Lyran Guards, Defiance Security Forces) away from the installation.
June 30th: The 4th and 22nd Skye Rangers start an irritating strategic game against the Gray Death Legion and the 15th Lyran Guards, slowly gaining ground, while the 36th Lyran Guards stay in the Maldon valley to defend its industry.
July 1st: The Skye-controlled Simon Davion destroys the HPG of Hesperus II via an orbital bombardement, seconds before the defenders can call for reinforcements.
July 18th: The pro-Skye 17th Skye Rangers and 32nd Lyran Guards reach Hesperus II. The 17th Skye Rangers attack the 36th Lyran Guards, while the 32nd Lyran Guards reinforce the depleted 4th and 22nd Skye Rangers in their attack on Defiance Industries. The Gray Death Legion is wiped out, but in return, infantry from the 15th Lyran Guards captures the commander of the 32nd Lyran Guards. Defiance Industries have been successfuly defended, the Skye rebels are in disarray. Maybe the 36th Lyran Guards are dispatched to hunt them down.
August 23rd: Isis Marik lures Victor in a restaurant and confronts him on his feelings. As this is a public appearance, she has forced him to reenter the Civil War. 
August 25th: A provisional regiment, created from the remains of pro-Katherine units, is dispatched to Hesperus II to bolster the defenders.
September 20th: Ardan Sortek, an emissary for Victor, arrives on New Syrtis. He tries to persuade George Hasek to support Victor, but George Hasek refuses, as he thinks that Victor wages this war to become ruler himself. A press spokesman on New Avalon issues a carefully-worded statement to denounce rumors, that a military strike on New Syrtis is planned. Katherine orders her champion Simon Gallagher to prepare an invasion of New Syrtis. He offers three units, five if Katherine were willing to wait two more months. But she wants the attack to commence as fast as possible. Katherine orders the MI6 to assassinate George Hasek.
October 31st: A pro-Katherine task force, consisting of the 4th Donegal Guards, 11th Avalon Hussars, Ridgebrook CMM and Avalon-class FCS Hanse Davion arrives in the New Syrtis system. An agent of MI6 attempts to assassinate George Hasek, but manages only to wound him gravely, before he is killed. George Hasek falls into a coma. Katherine Steiner-Davion delivers a press-conference, claiming that George Hasek was a secessionist and wanted to establish his own nation and House under his dictatorial rule. She said that a task-force had arrived on New Syrtis to persuade him with a "peaceful demonstration of power" to give up his plans. The Covenant and the FCS Hanse Davion face off in the orbit of New Syrtis. Both are destroyed, when the first attacks the latter with a suicidal ram maneuver. This merciless, suicidal behavior will set the tone for this whole conflict. Major-GeneralVictor Amelio from the 4th Donegal Guards tries to buy off the Vanguard Legion with a new contract, right before the battles begin, but they reject.
November 1st: After long fighting, the pro-Katherine 3rd Alliance Guards have finally destroyed the pro-Victor 7th Crucis Lancers, but that victory only came in, after the 7th Crucis Lancers had destroyed the 9th Lyran Regulars (at an unknown date). Inarcs and its Mech factories are reclaimed by Katherine. The invaders of New Syrtis achieved great initial gains, as the defenders were demoralized. A turnaround comes as George Hasek awakes from his coma. Central points in this war are Cavanaugh II, Dalkeith, Giausar and Marlette, as each side has at least three units invested in these fightings. The pro-Victor 20th, 23rd and 25th Arcturan Guards have defeated the 3rd Donegal Guards and conquered Cumbres, but the 25th Arcturan Guards were destroyed in the process.
November 9: ChancellorSun-Tzu Liao issues a press release, denouncing the accusations that the Capellan Confederation was behind the attack on George Hasek and demands proofs and a public apology from House Steiner-Davion. The invaders of New Syrtis have paralyzed most of its industry, but the defenders keep harassing them.
December 11th: George Hasek returns to his duties as CO of the defenders of New Syrtis. (He lost his left hand in the assassination attempt.) Counterattack plans to drive the invaders off New Syrtis are initiated.
December 31st: Demi-Precentor X Peter Fedt sends a secret message to Katherine Steiner-Davion, assuring her, that the 299th Division (except for one Level-III unit) will support her in the defense of New Avalon. The 11th Avalon Hussars singlehandedly try to neutralize the "cavern" (the military HQ of New Syrtis) by a parachute-surprise-attack of a company of Infiltrator Mk IIBattle Armors. To their surprise, they are awaited by a company of Cavalier battle armor. The Infiltrators are finally defeated after a gruesome battle.
January 21st: By two coordinated surprise attacks, units from the Vanguard Legion and the 8th Syrtis Fusiliers attack the HQ of the 11th Avalon Hussars. They capture or kill their entire command staff and leave the Hussars inoperable, as their chain of command is destroyed. The Hussars still have 70% of their initial strength.
February 12th: Using the survivors of the 11th Avalon Hussars as a bait, the New Syrtis CMM is tricked into leaving their position and attacking them on their own. The New Syrtis CMM is almost wiped out entirely, when they are attacked by the Hussars, the 4th Donegal Guards and several Aerospace Wings.
March: Maria Esteban’s task force of Skye separatists attack Hesperus II (again), but their chances are slim. 
unknown date: KhanVlad Ward from Clan Wolf sends Katrina a message, offering her to attack Clan Wolf-in-Exile. He states, that he would welcome such a fight and that he would not attack her opponent without her permission. 
March 16th: George Hasek is desperately looking for reinforcements, but none are available. He could call up several militia units, but they would end up as cannon-fodder. Ardan Sortek offers him Victor’s help: He could ask the 321st Com Guard Division to come to New Syrtis as "peacekeepers". George Hasek rejects the offer, as he does not want to owe Victor a favor.
April 4th: Tancred Sandoval's task-force has won on Nueva Valencia. Precentor MartialGavin Dow tries to build friendly connections to Victor, in case Katrina does not win. ComStar delivers several messages from Victor and Yvonne to Tancred: Victor says, that he has started from Thorin. His targets are hidden in Yvonne’s messages, but it's an easy guess that he will attack Tikonov and/or Kathil. Tancred plans to stage an initial attack on New Avalon, even before Victor is ready, to keep the defenders from harassing Victor. 
April 19th: In a live transmission, Gavin Dow informs Katrina that Morgan Kell has sent encrypted messages in the ARD. Various units are mobilizing, including the 1st regiment of the Kell Hounds and Alpha Galaxy of Clan Wolf-in-Exile. Katrina orders him to use his forces in the Terran Corridor to stop Victor’s task force, but he refuses. He also informs her, that Morgan Kell is on the way to Zaniah III.  Katrina declines KhanVlad Wards offer to attack the ARD. She doesn't want to owe him a favor.  Fighting on Freedom.  (Maybe Lyran forces are fighting Skye separatist forces.)
May 13th: Morgan Kell visits Peter Steiner-Davion in the monastery of Zaniah III. Morgan tells him, that Peter's political influence is needed. Peter doesn't want to leave the monastery, but he will do so for the good of the Lyran people. 
May 16th: The fighting on Cavanaugh II is over. The pro-Victor Penobscot CTM (destroyed in the fighting), 2nd Crucis Lancers and 182nd Com Guard Division have defeated the 7th and 10th Lyran Regulars. A truce was negotiated by (pro-Victor) GeneralRichard Steiner: They cease control of Cavanaugh II and may leave the planet with all their material. The 4th Donegal Guards attack New Saso and fighting ensues with the Vanguard Legion and the 8th Syrtis Fusiliers. The Vanguard Legion takes the command-lance of the 4th Donegal Guards as prisoners (not knowing who they are). They begin executing them, when members of the 8th Syrtis Fusiliers arrive. Grayson Addison challenges Chad Dean to a duel over this barbaric behavior and defeats and wounds him. Major General Victor Amelio from the 4th Donegal Guards is so shocked by these events, that he declares the capitulation of the 4th Donegal Guards and the Ridgebrook CMM. The Davion Light Guards, 8th Syrtis Fusiliers and Vanguard Legion each suffered approximately 50% losses. Of the invaders, only the 4th Donegal Guards leave New Syrtis as a unit.
May 24th: The 2nd Ceti Hussars arrive on New Syrtis to save their Duke, after securing their planet for Victor’s cause.
May 28th: The fighting in the whole former Federated Commonwealth is cooling down. There are two main reasons: There are simply not enough units left for much of a war. And second, Victor and Katherine are amassing troops for the final battle. For example, Katherine has so far assembled 9 units, most of them RCTs.
May 29th: Duke George Hasek announces that he will not support Victor’s fight against Katherine, until he has freed every single world of the Capellan March. (This has major political implications for the Federated Suns: For the first time in centuries, another prince is challenging the power of the First Prince of New Avalon.) The 2nd Ceti Hussars and the Light Guards head off for New Avalon, but they don't have enough DropShips to transport all troops.
June 2nd: Victor’s task force reaches Tikonov. The campaign is scheduled to take 2 months. Victor fights with the 10th Lyran Guards and the 244th ComGuards against the 1st Republicans. 
July 7th: Ardan Sortek's task force breaks the blockade. It consists of the Davion Light Guards (down to 1 Mech-battalion plus auxilliary-troops, but intact aerospace forces), the 2nd Ceti Hussars (lost 4 dropships breaking the blockade, lost a third of Mechs and most tanks) and single elements of the Vanguard Legion. All in all it is just one 'Mech regiment in strength. 
July 10th: Sandoval’s and Sortek’s task forces unite after defeating the 3rd Robinson Rangers. Katrina has six loyal, fully intact units on New Avalon. 
November 15th: Victor’s task force reaches New Avalon. His fleet consists initially of the Avalon-class FSS Melissa Davion and four Foxes (Kentares, Donnings, Intrepid, Robinson). The defender consist of the Avalons FSS Lucien Davion and FSS Alexander Davion and the Foxes Antrim and Murmansk. Victor lost first the Intrepid and the Donnings. Then the Kentares proceeded a ram-maneuver and activated its K-F Drive while in close proximity to the Alexander Davion. Both ships were destroyed, the Antrim damaged. Everyone was shocked by this unconventional event, but the crew of the Melissa Davion was the first to start shooting again. The Lucien Davion was soon badly damaged and offered capitulation. The Murmansk fled. 
November 20th: Victor’s forces have conquered the continent Brunswick on New Avalon, Tancred Sandoval’s troops are still on Rostock. Katrina gives a public speech, urging the citizens of New Avalon to hinder her brother’s forces by bringing the industry down with peaceful resistance.  Katrina had sent a message to Khan Vlad Ward, that she had changed her mind and needed his option of an attack on the ARD. He responds, that he is honor-bound not to attack, as Katrina initially accepted the challenge of the ARD. 
December: The sudden lack of industrial capacity caused supply-shortages for Victor’s troops. The 23rd Arcturan Guards were wiped out fending off the enemy and the Davion Assault Guards were almost destroyed as they held off a counter-attack that would have driven Victor’s troops off Brunswick. But other citizens use this opportunity as well, to voice their opposition by refusing to work. 
March 23rd: Nondi Steiner launches a major offensive. The center of the formation is held by the 1st Royal Guards, the flanks by the 24th Lyran Guards and the 11th Arcturan Guards, the 66th ComGuards are the reserve, behind the Royal Guards. On Peter's side, the Kell Hounds and 20th Arcturan Guards hold the center, with the 4th Wolf Guards as reserve. When the 4th Skye Rangers lure away the 11th Arcturan Guards for a deadly hide-and-seek, the front changes to a "W"-shape, Peter's forces being surrounded. Peter realizes that the commander of the ComGuards is too arrogant to accept the option of retreat, so he rearranges his troops, the Kell Hounds facing the 24th Lyran Guards, the 4th Wolf Guards facing the 1st Royal Guards and his 20th Arcturan Guards in full assault on the ComGuards. The ComGuards fall back, fighting back-to-back with the 1st Royal Guards. Then Peter changes the strategy again: He orders the arcturan tanks to take on the badly damaged ComGuards, while the arcturan Mechs, the Kell Hounds and the Wolves attack the Royal Guards. They retreat and Nondi Steiner orders the 24th Lyran Guards to sacrifize themselves to cover her retreat. Instead they capitulate. 
April 2nd: Peter launches his final offensive on Tharkad City. The first line of defense are the remains of the 2nd Royal Guards and the 11th Arcturan Guards, but the Royal Guards are overwhelmed after a hard battle and the Arcturans refuse to keep on fighting against fellow lyrans. Peter arranges their capitulation. Only the 1st Royal Guards remain and they hide in Tharkad City. Fighting from street to street, Peter ends up in a direct fight with Nondi Steiner, where he kills her with a lucky shot to the cockpit. Tharkad is conquered. 
April 20th: The 2nd Davion Guards have arrived, further strengthening Victor's forces. Victor's forces advance steadily, forcing Katrina's forces to retreat on several flanks. The 1st NAIS Training Cadre fights the 299th ComGuards, trying to conquer their old academy. They win, as they are suddenly reinforced by the 2nd Davion Guards and elements from the 10th Lyran Guards. The 299th ComGuards are destroyed. The NAIS-cadets march towards their academy, when they are suddenly eradicated by a massive artillery-strike: The whole valley was one gigantic trap. The cadets try to flee but are annihilated completely by massive artillery fire.  Katrina's forces retreat to the spaceport, but Victor's forces are on their heels. Katrina hesitates for too long and in the end Victor's forces are close enough to prevent her escape with a suicidal assault, if necessary. She reinstalls Jackson Davion, so he can declare her capitulation. 
April 24th: Katrina is arrested. Victor broadcasts a speech, declaring the end of the FedCom Civil War and presenting Peter Steiner-Davion and Yvonne Steiner-Davion to the citizens as their new respective rulers.  To prevent Katrina from further distorting the truth, she will not be put on trial in a court. Instead she will be put under house-arrest, while the evidence of her deeds is slowly spread to the public. 
August: Several aristocrats and military commanders are still hostile to Victor, but he stays clear of such situations by issuing personal orders of Peter and Yvonne. 
August 26th: KhanVlad Ward demands the extradition of Katherine Steiner-Davion, threatening war if he doesn't get her. Victor doesn't understand what's going on, but he complies. First to prevent war, second to ruin the image of Katherine. Maybe she would learn about honor, living among clansmen.
