The Chig War was an Intergalactic War between the Humans and the Chigs. This was Humanity's First Intergalactic War with an alien race.
Prelude to WarEdit
"After 150 years of calling out, the silence of the universe assures us that life is unique. We are alone." - Colonial Governor Borman
Assured in their belief that there was no other sentient life in the universe, humanity prepared several missions to leave Earth and establish colonies on other planets. In 2063, Colony Ships launched carrying 250 colonists each to Vesta and Tellus.
Vesta Colony MassacreEdit
Tellus Colony MassacreEdit
After successfully transiting a wormhole to reach the planet Tellus in the Epsilon Indi system, the colony ship had just completed its orbital insertion when it was attacked and destroyed by Chig fighters.
Skirmish on MarsEdit
The crash was observed by a group of USMC recruit officers on a routine training mission to repair a System Tracking Drone. Upon investigating the crash site, the USMC team found a dead alien in the wreckage and were subsequently fired upon by another Chig. The Marines returned fire, eventually capturing the Chig pilot alive. The Chig pilot died several hours later while being held captive.
