Synopsis

The history of the Second Battle of Tiamat continues to be chronicled. On 7 December 745 UC (436 IC / 3545 CE), having temporarily retreated and regrouped, the Alliance Fleet and the Imperial Fleet engages each other again. Worsening internal conflict amongst the Alliance fleet commanders does not appear to impair their command decisions in the front lines. However, as the battle progresses into a stalemate, the Alliance Fleet is in danger of being completely surrounded by the larger Imperial Fleet. Nevertheless, the Imperial plan fails when Bruce Ashbey, having foreseen this situation, reinforces the besieged Alliance Fleet at an opportune moment, throwing the Imperial encirclement into complete disarray. He is however too late to save Vittorio di Bertini, a fellow member of the Year 730 Mafia. As the Second Battle of Tiamat ends with a major Alliance victory, Ashbey's flagship Hard Luck is struck by stray Imperial gunfire, killing Ashbey in the process.

With the end of the chronicling of the Second Battle of Tiamat, Yang Wen-li bid his farewell to Alfred Rosas and returns to his research. However, barely a day has passed when news of Rosas' sudden death is announced.
