Story:
With the capture of Marauder's hulk along with annihilation of their leadership, the end of Ghost House' control in Trinitatis System has begun. The entire planet of Secundus had experienced it massive uprising with Lord Leonidas unifying the once-scattered groups. By this time, which has been nearly two months since their arrival, two of the three metropolises has been taken with the capital being under siege and majority of Ghost Houses' military being used to police the unruly populace. Unfortunately, the news of the Fleet's successes had got the attention of the traitor's fleet near Inanis and the admiral ordered to return to crush the rebellion. In addition, the liberation fleet led by Captain Augustus Lemartes have been battered even with the success at the Hulk. Majority of their ships are in need of repairs, their Legionnaires is at half strength, and civilian volunteers are not enough to restore its fighting strength to the fullest. The best thing the fleet can do it to order a quick repair before heading to the path of the Chaul fleet to delay until the reinforcements arrived six hours later. Even after their message of their successes and request to aid them had been sent to the incoming fleet, the entire Vanguard fleet would not be able to stop their suppression and may roll back the entire liberation efforts by weeks, if not months. The ingenious Cassian fleet superior had to made the best out of everything he has after his fleet is in need of recovery after the massive assault at the Marauder's Hulk.
Captain Lemartes later look at the supply of Marauder's war assets that he may utilize for anything to halt the Chaul fleet. Their ships may be well-armed and might act as disguise, but the “disguised ships” units would be redundant since the news of their demise had reached to their ears. The Chaul command maybe arrogant and incompetent ones, but they are not daft enough to fall for that with the update. Lemartes then looked for ideas on explosive laden ghost ships to be sent at the fleet, which at best could take minor damage before most of them were blown apart from distance. Then he realized something and contacted Iji Lux at his cruiser Bezgelor Finest where he stayed to tinker to his liking. Lemartes then talked to Iji for request to build him a custom-made fleet weapon in time before the Chaul fleet comes to Secundus. Iji then smiles after hearing his request, which Chua gladly went to work on creating a secret weapon and modifications for Lemartes' war assets. Two hours before the main fleet arrives, the fleet managed to get most of its firepower online and head to fight in what will be known as Battle of the Trinity System.
The Chaul fleet had made full speed ahead to Secundus system when they hear the news of the fall of Marauder's Hulk along with their fruitless search that distracted them until now. Nevertheless, their fleet power is still enough to regain control over their domain and wipe out the rebel fleet. As they approach in proximity to Mons shipyard, their ships' detection discovered an array of ships heading towards them. The admiral, who was known to be gullible enough to trap in Inanis area for two months without bothering to leave garrisons, finally showed his rare intellect when he only sent three long range escorts to check the “attackers”. Then, as he suspected, the fleet turned out to be a bait and proceed to move forward. They were then harassed by three repeated attacks by Dominus Glory and Ravok Rage with its ordinance before falling back for good. It only caused the fleet to shaken and disarray, but not damaged and kept moving on. Then as the ship sighted the Mons' dockyard, they sensed the detection above their formations where their previous formations since the skirmish caused delays in returning fire. It was a single re purposed Marauder warship fitted with high speed boosters heading towards the flagship. By the time the fleet managed to turn to open fire, it was destroyed but only with it to drift towards two capital ships that left both of them in heavy damages. Then Dominus Glory and Ravok Rage arrived for the final run at the now panicking fleet. Massive energy cannons from these two ships slammed its high-energy accurate beams towards the Chaul fleet, which finished off one of the crippled ships and destroyed six escorts. The surviving ships began to experience damages in weapon systems, even the flagship got its munition sections exploded that caused both crippling blow and no longer able to load its now empty weaponry. The fleet try to return fire but the two escorts' speed allowed it to evade fire while bringing out massive damages to them before withdrawing as their energy and coolant system reached their maximum limits. Out of six cruisers and 18 escorts, only five cruisers and 12 remained in action with various levels of damages. The crippled fleet move to Mons, which is still under their control albeit still contesting with rebels.
The Battle of Trinitates System entered its second phase when the ships of Chaul managed to make whatever docks are still in their hands to make repairs. Finally got their chance to destroy Chaul's stranglehold once and for all, Augustus Lemartes fleet began to move in for a final blow. The alert was sounded and Chaul's fleet—now made up of four cruisers and 12 escorts—scrambled to meet their rivals' strength of two cruisers and nine escorts. As usual, Chaul fleet sent out skirmishers made out of six escorts to harass the fleet with Lemartes launched a counter unit made out of fighters and two escorts (Ravoks Rage and Dominus Glory, still armed with their initial high energy turrets). The light assault groups from both sides began to experience heavy casualties from attrition before withdrawing to their main fleet as both of them move forward. With the stalemates in their skirmish battle, Commander Lemartes realized his mistake on sending the two escorts with heavy weapons on skirmish and plan to repair his flaws by sending out Unyielding Wills and Unending Vigils with their missile payloads. As the main fleet exchanged fires, the two destroyers moved in flanking maneuver with half of remaining fighters loaded with anti-capital weapons. Despite the risks of being intercepted, the flanking ships managed to unleash their payloads. While the few missiles managed to hit their targets, even destroying the last crippled cruiser from initial attack run, they also played addition roles as the ship's dodging maneuver caused either collision or distracted from noticing the fighter's payloads. As the battle approached its end, the Chaul fleet was down to a single flagship and four escorts. In contrast, Lemartes fleet lost significant portions (45%) of their fighters along with two destroyers withdrawing from systems overload and two cruisers in heavy damage. Then the arrival of the Dominion main fleet caused the Chaul to escape to the last known strongholds of Marauders. It was then Captain Augustus Lemartes was cited by the fleet's admiral with highest honors for his resourcefulness and tactical acumen at Trinitates System.

Story:
Augustus Lemartes, Salvation of Trinity and Captain of Edge of Indominar, watched over the terminal over the results of the battle. Almost hundreds of crews and soldiers were dead, five ships were destroyed (one destroyed, four were rendered inoperable), along with casualties of local resistance cells. He then looked around the surface as he made planet fall, where he saw a monument being built. All of the names being inscribed to honor their sacrifices, beneath the title of Those who dedicated their duty until death in liberation of Trinitates System for the Dominion. Despite the sorrow he expeirenced, he managed to show his stoicism as he gathered with citizens and soldiers of the Dominion. Then, he visited the governor's officer at the capital of Secundus, where Lord Leonidas have become both the interim leader and possible candidate for the office once the official representative came to recognize the leadership. His room was well-decorated but spartan nature, which the desk was made of exquisite wood and floor carved of marble but without any lavish decorations. While a Highborn leader might have a better room, Lord Leonidas removed any “excess” (golden statue, fountain, and “personal assistants”) in the name of public relations and representation of good moral in the new Dominion. Both of them later discussed on their future and situation, but Augustus Lemartes explained that he was to be deployed to other parts of the Dominion galaxy where he might have a chance to refine his mobile warfare that would find its reliability in the Fringe. Lord Leonidas smiled and glad to know that his comrade will find a better future like himself in position to rule the planet. Two hours have passed, which Augustus Lemartes said his farewell and headed to the space port.
Thus in three months of conflict against Chaul in Trinitatis System, the entire system was back in the hand of the Dominion and the fleet departed to Cassus for redeployment. Many of the officers and crews found their great citations once the high leadership was reported on their deeds. Many lives were lost in initial ambush, but Commodore Augustus Lemartes showed his initiative by taking over the fleet and used his resourcefulness to utilized half-powered fleet to overcome the large numbers of ships and assets. This is where the Battle of Trinity System showed its merits as one of many victories, because it taught future commanding officers on using wits to utilize small resources into large potential damage against the enemies. After the battle, the Chaul remnants and their Marauder compatriots were battered and later pursued by the arriving fleet with their final end met at asteroid base at neighboring asteroid ring. In the aftermath of the battles, the noted captains went on with their lives.
Commodore Augustus Lemartes: He would live on to become a noted escort squadron leader, which he emphasized on high-speed attack ships over large capital ships in dealing with Fringe piracy and rapid response operations. While he was the only one of the fleet to made it to Nexus, he perished during an air supremacy campaign over Ellevar against Ikthians when his prize ship Edge of Indominar took a hit in the engine and crashed on the surface.
Captain Magnus Alpharex: The mechari would later take position as executive officers on other ships, when Tristan's Fortitude was scuttled from Battle of Trinity system. Decades of his excellence and a commendation at Trinitates system would earn him a rank of Captain and command of a battleship.
Commander Janos Pyrios: The young captain would later deployed to fight against Exile raids near Beraphalon Stars. Sadly, his time as a commander was short-lived after his ship was destroyed by explosion that was meant for the deployed fleet's admiral. He left behind an infant son and a wife.
Commander Victoria Victus: After the sacrifice of her former superior, Victori would lead Unending Vigils and her crews to many missions in the stars. As of recent news, she was proposed to be married by Commander Lysandar.
Commander Lucifer Lysandar: The bastard child and future fiance to Lady Victus was later accepted as member of his maternal family once he returned to Cassus. He would later become a teacher at Cassus university as a professor in Physics, but he did managed to tell his tales of war.
Commander Bill Boiler: His accomplishment as one of Lowborn officers to achieve a commanding rank and his role in Trinitates system was met with mixed response from the nobility. Nevertheless, he would teach a new generation of officers and space crews at the military academy.
Legionnaire Centurion Hika Dreadheart: For her duty as capable commander to Legionnaires at Trinitates system, she was awarded with highest honor and a promotion. However, her wounds in a recent campaign a decade ago would gained her an honorable discharge and retired on Mikros.
Thus, the end of the story of Battle at Trinity. All thanks to 1600AE for publication and Dominion military archives for making this story possible.
