The Romulan Star Navy followed up the ambush of IGS Ka'Thelan Krotus the near the system by launching a surprise attack on the colony the next day. They managed to circumvent to system's warp-detection grid and caught the planet completely by surprise.
A heavy ship-to-ship fight broke out in orbit, followed by intense ground assault. Realizing their inevitable defeat, the captains of the military and civilian vessel joined forces to evecuate as many people from the system as they can. One such ship was the Andorian Imperial Freight Service starship Shesh, on wich reporter Gannet Brooks was a passenger and was able to report on the entire battle.
With the fall of the planet, the Romulans gained yet another victory and foothold against the Coalition, and inflicted major casualties on the Andorian forces. (ENT - The Romulan War novel: Beneath the Raptor's Wing)
