The Kilrathi invaded the planet and the colonists were captured. Lord Vakka was assigned to spend some time there and evaluate the humans so that the Empire would prepare for an invasion. However, by knowing them better, Lord Vakka felt that humans were unlike other species they had encountered before, and firmly believed that they should be used as assets instead of underlings. He put the master of the planet Harga, as their retainer under his protection.
However because of its strategic position, the Emperor laid a claim on it, compensating the Vakka clan with another planet. With the beginning of his campaign, the planet was scheduled to become a military base.
