One year has passed since that agreement, the 18th scouting party reported that the Raian capital Melkide has been captured by an army of unknown origin. The United Earth Government decided to dispatch an army to Raia to retake the capital and rescue the citizens.

However, the true purpose of this operation was to bring Raia under Earth's control,
once the mysterious army was eliminated. This fact was never made public...
