Culture and history


The Trife fleet is a relief force unit of the Star Forces(Labule/Laburec) of the Humankind Empire of Abh.

Toraimu is probably a print-error for Toraifu=Trife; it appears only once in the COTS3 novel)


History[edit]

The sudden invasion of the UMK in ICY 952 prompted the Star Forces to gather an emergency relief fleet to recapture Sufagnoff. As one of the vice commanders in chief of the Peace Protection Office Admiral Trife was put in command of the fleet.[1][2]

Battle of Sufagnoff[edit]

Main article: Battle of Sufagnoff

When the fleet arrived it was met with 3 partial fleets from the Fleet A of the United Mankind Peace Preservation Army Contingent/Dispatch. Admiral Trife let his fleet display a show of force formation to intimidate the opposition and eventually force them to retreat. However, the strategy did not work and battle became unavoidable. It was only later revealed that the UMK fleet was indeed a diversion.

Of the nearly 2100 ships from the Trife fleet 145 are considered lost or disabled:[3]:66[4]:48

The lightly damaged ships were repaired by the construction ships (Dausuia) and put back into action.

The UMK fleet numbered nine hundred interstellar warships. Only twenty-seven, all of which surrendered to the Labule, were left, although, barely functional.
