    638 Humans killed; hostile relations established between Humans and Vanduul

On 9 August 2681, a Vanduul raiding party invaded Armitage (Orion III), destroying the Human settlement of Dell Township. All 638 people were killed, save one. United Empire of Earth (UEE) authorities initially believed that outlaws were responsible for the attack. It wasn't until 15 September 2681 that the UEE military encountered their first Vanduul Clan. Because the Vanduul do not operate under a unified government, the UEE was both unable to directly retaliate or seek to establish diplomatic relations. Relations between the UEE and the Vanduul remain hostile.
