I always wanted to have a vision on the Vaygr side of the Battle for Hiigara. So, I’ve created my own version for fun, and published it in the Complex mod forum some years ago. There are some plot holes and a lot of space for comments. The story is divided in 6 posts.
- Remisniscences of a Vaygr Commander
1/6- DOMINO INVASION
It’s been 5 years now from the Vaygr Siege. Let me say something about those events. My command post didn’t take part on that enterprise because we were a late arrival force at Balcora gate. By that moment, we were able to scan Hiigara and be aware that the Planet Killers were being smashed upon one another easily. But first, let’s talk about the missions issued to stop the Hiigarans.
We started to bring down the Hiigarans outposts. That was a measure to show force and impose surrender, although Makaan himself wasn’t so interested in peace and dialogue, as we know now.
I was assigned to attack the less important ones: Hera, Augan and Tanis.
In our plans, they were codenamed Trident.
I was given a Missile Frigate as a command post to lead bomber squadrons. We would have bypassed these outposts, but they are so close to each other that became of military interest. During the assault we came to know that Tanis was actually a secret base. We haven’t discovered it first because these outposts had a weak signal for our scans.
I decided to be present in Tanis because of that station, Chimera - we detected what seemed to be a hyperspace inhibitor there, so I had to lead the bombers on taking it down. This way, after the raid we would be putting hands on Hiigaran protocols and, of course, helping my vain progress in the ranks.
