Towards the end of the war, circa reference stardate 1/98 (2250s), Admiral Reynolds led of fleet of 300 ships returning from the Battle of Kolm-an. On the way, they discovered the planet of Spike in the Spikal system, home to an isolationist Orion Colony. Reynolds sent a contact team, but the Spikans snubbed them and ordered him and his fleet to leave immediately. Though confused, it was a request that he respected, especially given the dangers, leaving only some diplomats who were allowed to land. Reynolds withdrew his fleet and continued back to Federation space (FASA RPG module: The Orions: Book of Common Knowledge).
