History[edit]

In 3051 the mercenary unit Blue Lightning was stranded in Kaesong system because their JumpShip had experienced technical difficulties.[1] As in 3051 the "Death to Mercenaries" order from Takashi Kurita was still in place, the unit most probably was in transit from the FRR when they experienced the JumpShip issues or had been contracted for security duty by some Kuritan enterprise company. [citation needed]

As part of the fifth wave of the renewed Clan Invasion, the planet was attacked by Clan Ghost Bear in December 3051. When the planetary government pleaded with Blue Lightning to come to their aid, the mercenaries had little choice. In the end, that caused more harm than good though as, knowing they faced dezgra mercenaries, Star Colonel Dane Jorgensson skipped the bidding process entirely and sent in the elite Trinary Command of his 14th Battle Cluster to hunt the enemy down. They pursued Blue Lightning to the streets of Vedsan and destroyed the mercenaries utterly. The planet was conquered after that final action.[1]
