The Battle of Tau Ceti IV was a brief battle between the United Earth and Romulan Star Empire fought over Tau Ceti IV.


As Earth gained it first victory at Berengaria and began amassing forces for the retaking of Deneva, Romulan supreme commander Valdore withdrew forces from Deneva in preparation for the invasion of Tau Ceti IV. As Coalition forces attacked Deneva, the Romulan forces moved to attack the lightened defenses at Tau Ceti IV. (ENT novel: Beneath the Raptor's Wing)

The BattleEdit

As the Romulan ships entered the system they blitzed the ships on patrol insystem, including the Atlantis (NX-05). They then began landing troops on the surface and establishing a foothold only 12 light-years from Earth. (ENT novel: Beneath the Raptor's Wing)


The Romulans were able to establish a foothold within close range of Earth causing United Earth leaders to establish a "Fortress Earth" policy, in which a large number of Starfleet vessels were to withdraw from outer areas so they could guard Earth and Alpha Centauri.
