Brisch scientists created the first organic and technological hybrid Athena-Class Battleship the, HMS Hestia. Using the transport bug's propulsion system built into the Battleship's original systems, it was set to be one of the speediest Fleet vessels, despite its heavy armaments and massive size. This vessel was downed in the starting point of what would later be referred to as the "siege of Brisch." Lasting over a week of intense conflict, the siege reduced the heavenly colony to fallen ruins, hence the responsible 44th Flanker's name change to the "44th Fallen."
Brisch was retaken after Operation Blue Eagle, and reconstruction, bug extermination, and coordinated repopulation efforts have begun. However, many believe that the chances of entirely eradicating the seemingly endless hordes of arachnids are unlikely, and believe that Brisch will forever live under the threat of the bugs.
Brisch used to exist as an incredibly important stronghold for the Federation, and losing it to the Skinnie armada struck a deep blow into the Federation's forces. General Hauser unveiled Operation Blue Eagle, an offensive to retake the expensive planet. Twenty-five battleships and dozens of corvettes launched an offensive from surrounding planets. After nearly three months of scattered battles, the entire Brio system was retaken, and reconstruction of Brisch was underway, that is before it was taken again by the Arachnids.
