|Delegation on Gaeto||Slipspace Rift Incident (July, 2557)|
When the Back with a Vengence was teleported into the THDF universe they were low on supplies due to the long campaign Humanity had been waging on the covenant. The planet of Na Zego and its people took them in and gave them food and a warm bed. Savior Team also used the opportunity to upgrade much of their equipment. But soon the Chat Empire showed up and demanded that the members of the Back with a Vengeance hand over their tech, or be considered enemies of the state. As with other instances with the slip-space rifts, the Chat wanted to make sure they were not a threat. They also saw this as a chance to pick up and discover new technology. The Captain, Richard Lee, saw this as unacceptable and planned to attack the Chat Empire.
However, after Savior received intel from the locals on the size of the Chat, it was agreed upon by Richard Lee and the locals that Richard would prolong the negotiations\. Then precisely a the solar flare (which would produce an EMP) hit the planet, the Back with a Vengeance would escape into slipspace. When the Captain got out of slip-space and radioed Na Zego he found static. Thinking it was the EMP, the Captain continued on his way to another system, hopefully not controlled by the Chat.
However, when the Back with a Vengeance reached the next planet, they found it deserted, with only one small ship being found. After meeting the survivors on the civilian ship, Savior Team found the truth. The Chat had sacked planets that centered around Na Zego in retaliation for the civilian cooperation with the Back with a Vengeance.
The Chat's hope was that either the ship would turn up and surrender, or they could find it's location and hunt it down. That was also when Savior Team first heard about The Resistance and the atrocities the Chat Empire had committed. It was not long before the Back with a Vengeance was a part of the resistance with every member fully committed to stopping the Chat Empire and their allies.
