The Ostfalen participated in the Imperial expedition campaign into the Van-Fleet Star Zone under the overall Fleet Admiral Gregor von Mückenberger from March to April 794 UC (485 IC / 3594 CE). It engaged in several inconclusive battles with Alliance forces, culminating in the battle Van-Fleet 4-2, where the Ostfalen and the rest of its fleet landed on the surface of the planet and attacked an Alliance logistics base with ground forces.
