Historical Data[edit]

1096 Ocelot Incident. In 1096 Focaline was the location for the now famous Ocelot Incident. The Destroyer CE Ocelot was on patrol in the Focaline system, having completed a series of training operations to include search and rescue, navigational buoy tending and Zero G vacc suit training, Ocelot was preparing to leave the system when she received a faint distress signal. Once lured down into the upper atmosphere she was set upon and swarmed by vacc suited corsairs from the not so in distress vessel. Unbeknownst to the corsairs there were five members of the Interstellar Star Scouts aboard the Ocelot ranging in age from eleven to seventeen years of age. The scouts were aboard for training purposes and were aboard the ship's Gig ready to launch in case of a man overboard alert. When the corsairs swept aboard the Ocelot, there was no indication the gig was occupied and it was overlooked during the search for survivors. The corsairs placed a prize crew aboard Ocelot and jumped her to their secret staging base in the asteroid fields of Shionthy.

On the midnight watch of the second night in jump, the "children" came out of the gig and cleared the ship compartment by compartment in a mostly one sided battle with the "children" entering compartments with drunken sleeping corsairs to hack them with cutlass and firing with shotguns on the corsairs who felt completely safe from harm whilst nestled securely in jump space. Upon emergence from jump space, the new acting captain chose to refuel at the system gas giant and jumped to Wochiers, refueled at the gas giant and then jumped again to Regina where Ocelot reported to the Naval Highport to make her report of the incident.

A beacon memorializing the loss of the officers and crew of the Ocelot has been placed in the L5 point of the gas giant within the system.
