The Battle of Vega II was fought on 9 October 2945 between the United Empire of Earth and the Vanduul. It was sparked when a large Vanduul Clan led by a Kingship jumped to the Vega System and attacked the planet Aremis (Vega II). After a desperate battle against overwhelming forces, the United Empire of Earth Navy's (UEEN) 2nd Fleet commanded by Admiral Ernst Bishop managed to turn the tide with the destruction of the kingship that drove the Vanduul survivors out of the system. The attack elevated concern about the Vanduul threat and led to a military action to reclaim Human systems lost to the Vanduul. This marked the first time in history that Human forces have destroyed a Vanduul Kingship.
