Banu-Human First Contact

Humans and Banu first made contact in 2438, when navjumper Vernon Tar encountered a Banu fugitive in the outskirts of the Davien system. After mistakenly opening fire on the Banu vessel, Tar relayed his coordinates to the United Nations of Earth (UNE). A delegation party led by General Neal Socolovich were immediately dispatched to the system to reverse any possible diplomatic fallout and attempt to open communication. Two weeks later, representatives of the Banu Protectorate arrived in Davien and made formal contact with Socolovich. In October of 2438, Humans signed their first Interstellar Peace and Trade Accord with an alien civilization.
