One of the scouts near Axanar picks up a second, incoming Klingon task force. Despite being outnumbered, Garth quickly implements a tactical plan that results in his victory at the Battle of Axanar, preventing the Klingons from establishing a supply line to forces already massed there. Unaware of the results of the First Battle of Axanar, and secure in the belief that the Axanar research facility is safe, the Klingon Empire declares war on the U.F.P. exactly one month later [FASA].

It will later be renamed the IKSV "Straave'eMara" ("Slave Of Justice") and be used in Kamato's abortive coup attempt on the Klingon throne. After failing, Kamato will retreat into the Triangle tak- ing the "Loknar" class frigate with him. From their location in the Tri- angle, the Klingon rebels will attack unprotected convoys and merchant ves- sels by using the "Straave'eMara" to lure them in. This ruse will last several years until the general recall of all "Loknar" class vessels make it difficult for the Klingon vessel to operate. The IKV Admiralty event- ually decides to have the vessel painted in the standard steel-gray color of their Navy and keeps the ship in active service [FASA].

29 September [reference stardate 1/9409.29]
In response to the Federation Council, Admiral Kkorhetza refuses to with- draw his ships from Federation territory, issuing a formal declaration of alliance with the natives on Axanar. This results in a state of war be- tween the U.F.P. and the Klingon Empire, and the Four Years War begins. At the Second Battle of Axanar, Captain Garth (his small command now reinfor- ced by Star Fleet) defeats Kkorhetza's forces and is awarded the Federation Medal of Valor. Though tactical experts expect the Romulans to enter the war on one side or the other, they do not [FASA, FRS, SotF].

Instructed not to let the Federation disc- over they are Romulan vessels, they are given orders to self-destruct if caught. These privateers capture or destroy many Federation merchants and scouts.

April [reference stardate 1/9604] The "Larson" class destroyers "Hammurabi" (NCC-4337) and "Troy" (NCC-4338) are destroyed while escorting a convoy of merchant ships bound for a fron- tier area.

When a Klingon cruiser ventured too close to the derelict, however, it opened fire and destroyed the enemy vessel in a single volley [FASA].
