|Battle of Minark|
|Part of Coalition War|
|Submission of Koma|
The CWS Revenge and the 3rd Command Group attack the planet of Minark to attract the Federation attention. After sensing the Mass Driver's attacks, the Federation sends a fleet to mass in orbit of the planet Paos, where they prepare to warp to Minark. Captain Sarah Tellening is placed in command of the fleet.
Once the Starfleet Third Fleet warped into the Minark system, the USS Crockett and USS Ulysses were destroyed by the So'jan fleet. The first thing that the Third noticed was that the planet was not destroyed, just heavily damaged. Captain Tellening broke the fleet into four groups, one with the USS Skyfox in command, the other with the USS Pioneer, and the other two under the USS Ticonderoga and USS José Mendez.
The Ticonderoga and its group took the left flank, and engaged fifteen hybrid-battleships, ten destroyers, and five warships. The USS Omaha was damaged during the first meeting between the two opposing fleets.
Skyfox 's group and the Pioneer 's group attacked the center of the enemy line. The USS Horatio was hit while protecting the Skyfox. The USS Fleming and USS Kransnowsky destroyed one of the so'jan battleships. The USS Fortune rammed another battleship and the USS Shadowcat, USS Lincoln, and Ticonderoga finished it off.
Meanwhile the Pioneer and her group swarm around twelve battleships, five destroyers, and four warships. The USS Repulse and the USS Jefferson took out two warships, while the Pioneer, USS Hood, and USS Marques took out a battleship. Calok ordered the CWS Revenge to fire upon the USS Merrimack, destroying it with a pulse cannon. The Merrimack 's saucer section struck the Fleming 's right nacelle.
The USS Independence and the USS Pinafore, along with the USS Wellington try and destroy a destroyer, but fighter crafts disabled the Wellington, causing the ship to impact shields with the USS Panama. The Panama then lost containment of their hull breaches, began rolling out of control, and rammed into the port side of a so'jan warship. The USS Ticonderoga and USS Sutherland got attacked by a battleship, and the Sutherland lost a nacelle in the exchange. The USS Lincoln swooped in and tried to save the Sutherland, but was destroyed when two destroyers rammed into her.
The USS Skyfox, USS Horatio, and USS Brittany tried to attack the Revenge, but a warship, along with fighters intercepted them and stalled their advance. The Brittany stalled, its nacelles and deflector became damaged.
The USS Zhukov and USS Pinafore, along with the Independence and USS José Mendez destroyed three destroyers and two warships. While the Horatio spun out of control, Tellening gave them the order to withdrawal. The USS Charleston took the Horatio's place in the Third's lines. The USS Omaha and Ticonderoga destroyed a battleship, but a flanking battleship fired upon them and damaged the Omaha.
Meanwhile the Zhukov was struck in the deflector dish by a fighter. The ship was then bombarded by enemy fire and was destroyed. The USS Crazy Horse, USS Repulse and USS Pioneer, along with the USS Persephone broke through the lines. During the attack the Persephone was damaged. While they battled above, the USS Fleming burnt up in the Minark atmosphere.
The USS Skyfox, and USS Kransnowsky broke through the lines, and headed towards the Mass Driver. But two warships engaged them and damaged the Kransnowsky. The USS José Mendez and USS Pinafore struck at two battleships, with the USS Thomas Paine. The USS Pioneer, USS Crazy Horse, and USS Jefferson rushed to assist, and the later two were damaged in the melee.
The Third Fleet began to fall apart.
Captain Tellening gave the order to retreat after seeing the Repulse get destroyed.
The planet of Minark was completely bombarded by the Mass Driver, and the Coalition took the upper hand in the war, taking the Tealuian territory surrounding Minark, as well as other Tealuian controlled planets. When arriving back at Deep Space Five, while dropping out of warp, the USS Jefferson experiences a deflector dish malfunction, which caused the starship to explode; killing all hands onboard.

Later the battle would be referred to as the Massacre at Minark. ("Internal")
