At least 39 were killed and 78 injured during an unexpected attack on the Apex Dominion station of Proxima-4482 last thursday. The identity of those who lead this attack are yet to be revealed.

"Whoever these attackers were, they understood the vulnerabilities of this station," Admiral Iryna Pasic said in a statement to the Jeteran Explorer. "Proxima is on the edge of Dominion space, bordering the Frontier. They are probing our borders for weakness, and soon I believe they will launch another assault deeper into our territories."

Proxima-4482 was a defense platform placed along the borders of the Apex Dominion sector. Though it was equipped with several point-defense cannons and 4 heavy railguns, it was not enough to fend off the attackers. Fortunately, Dominion reinforcements, accompanied by a small fleet from the Terran Republic, were able to repel them. The Dominion faced heavy losses, the battle resulting in the destruction of 3 light cruisers and the loss of many crewmen. Among these losses was Commander Vuksan Siroky of the ADS Visenda, who was well known for serving in the Apex Rebellion.

Little information has been gathered on the hostile ships, but Major Rory Hubbard of the Terran Republic stated that they were devoid of any organic pilots or crewman. It was also noted that the "fighters" of this hostile fleet displayed a sort of swarm behavior, which has lead the Terran Republic to believe they are a sophisticated type of drone craft that coordinate attacks through a shared network of information.

"We're not entirely sure of the origin of the ships. However, what we can tell you is they appear to be linked by a hivemind style of control," Major Rory Hubbard told the Jeteran Explorer. "Once the command ship was disabled and destroyed, the remaining fighters and 'drones' were rendered useless and self-destructed as a sort of security measure."
