|Second Battle at the Grave of Thoughts|
|Part of Lyran-Kzin wars|
|Location:||Grave of Thoughts|
|Result:||Decisive Lyran victory|
The Second Battle at the Grave of Thoughts was a battle that pit the Lyran Starfleet (and more accurately the Iron Fang County) and the Kzinti Patriarchy in 2385. (RIS Bouteina: "Battle at the Grave of Thoughts")
At the start of the engagement, the Lyran fleet sent in three battlegroups, which were met by fierce Kzinti resistance, both from the fleet posted for the starbase's defense and from the starbase itself, after several hours of combat, required the commanding officer of the starbase to call in the reserve fleet positioned at QU-1760. Annika Hansen took the command of the Romulan forces involved; once the shields of the Grave of Thoughts are down, the different forces involved scrambled to beam over the prisoners in an attempt to save them.
The loss of a major starbase in Kzinti territory proved to be a costly defeat for the Kzinti Patriarchy, and the casualties suffered onboard the Bouteina prompted the Tal Prai'ex to recruit crewmen in an emergency, while the remaining Romulan cut of the prisoner load, 2,222 prisoners would depart for Simpson's Planet on the double.
